Oregon State vs. UCLA Pick

CBB Predictions: Oregon State Beavers vs. UCLA Bruins 2/12/17

Can No. 10 UCLA handle being an overwhelming favorite when it plays host to Oregon State today at 5PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, UCLA is heavily favored, as the Bruins are getting odds of -27.5 points against Oregon State. The over/under total is listed at 159.5 points. The road team has won the last three in this series, including a 76-63 win for UCLA back on Dec. 30. However, the Bruins were a 21-point favorite in that game.

Oregon State is a bad team and UCLA shouldn’t have much trouble winning this game, but the Bruins giving up 27.5 points is a lot to ask. UCLA is coming off an emotional comeback win over Oregon, so I would expect the Bruins to come out a little slow to start. They likely are looking past this game a little bit, which should allow the Beavers to keep within reason.
