Washington vs. UCLA Prediction
Will the under cash tonight when UCLA hosts Washington at 11:00PM ET in Pac-12 play?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Bruins are 22.5-point home favorites versus the Huskies while the over/under currently sits at 174 points.
The Huskies enter play having lost all 10 of their last 10 games. They're just 2-8 against the spread over that 10-game span, are 8-18 against the number on the year, and are 2-7 at the betting window in their nine lined road games this season.
The Bruins have won eight of their last 10 games but are just 4-6 against the spread over that same stretch. They're 15-14 at the betting window on the season, but just 7-8 against the spread at home this year.
OUR PREDICTION: The Huskies are horrendous but with a 22.5-point spread, there are too many variables at play to lay that many points. UCLA could cruise the entire game, take out its starters late and then Washington could make a run to close the gap and ruin tickets. Thus, let's look at the total. The under is a perfect 7-0 in the Huskies' last seven road games, is 11-1 in their last 12 games as an underdog, and is 14-3 in their last 17 games overall. On the other side, the under has cashed in five of the Bruins' last six games overall, is 4-1 in their last five games as a favorite, and is 5-1 in their last six conference games.
