The Washington Huskies and UCLA Bruins face off on Saturday in a college basketball showdown at the Pauley Pavilion. When these two teams faced off in February of 2021 it was UCLA that won 64-61.
Washington comes into this game with a 13-11 record overall and they have gone 13-11 against the spread. Washington has lost two games in a row including the last game against USC where they gave up 79 points. Washington is averaging 70.7 points while their defense is giving up 72.7 points per game. Terrell Brown Jr has been the top player for Washington averaging 22.2 points while shooting 45.5 percent from the field and 22 percent from behind the three point line. This is a defense that at times has struggled, and in this game if the defense struggles they are going to have some major issues.
On the other side of this matchup is the UCLA Bruins who sit with an 18-5 record overall and they have gone 11-11-1 against the spread. In the last game against Washington State, the defense was elite giving up only 56 points, and that led to the 20 point defeat. UCLA is averaging 77.1 points while their defense is giving up 65.5 points per game. Johnny Juzang has been the top player for UCLA averaging 17.9 points while shooting 45.1 percent from the field and 39 percent from behind the three point line.
UCLA is 4-0-1 against the spread in their last five home games. The over is 6-0 in Washington’s last six games overall. The over is 5-1 in UCLA’s last six home games against a team with a losing road record. The under is 4-1 in UCLA’s last five games following an against the spread win.
UCLA is an elite offensive team, and they are going to have no issue running up the score in this game. Washington is going up 72.7 points per game and their lack of defense is going to let them down. Back UCLA to win this game and cover the spread. I do also like the pace of this game to be fast and the over is going to cash.
