UCLA has won five straight since suffering an 89-87 loss at Oregon to move to 18-1 overall and 5-1 in the Pac-12. The Bruins are 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games and 11-8 against the spread on the season. They have failed to cover in their last three games as a double-digit favorite. UCLA is averaging 92.9 points per game on offense this season while allowing 75.3 per game on defense. At home, UCLA averages 97.7 points per game while allowing 72.8 points per contest on defense. UCLA has six players scoring in double figures this season, led by Bryce Alford, who puts up 17.8 points per contest.

UCLA will win this game, but giving up 18 points is a lot, especially in conference play. Arizona State isn’t a very good defensive team, but UCLA can only score so many points. ASU is an offense that can still put up a big number, which should be enough to cover this lofty spread. I like the Sun Devils to cover in this one.
