Washington State is 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 road games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following an ATS win. The under is 16-5 in Washington State’s last 21 games. UCLA is 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games. The over is 6-2 in UCLA’s last 8 Thursday games. The home team is 12-4 ATS in these two teams last 16 head to head meetings.

Both of these teams have sputtered in their last few games, but UCLA still has the more talented team and is on home court. When looking at the numbers, this game looks pretty even, but UCLA does have decent advantage in shooting percentage. I like the over in this game as I think it is a few points too low.
