Oregon vs. UCLA Prediction
No. 9 Oregon is just a slight road favorite tonight at fellow Pac-12 rival UCLA at 9:00PM ET on ESPN2.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Ducks are now 2.5-point road favorites versus the Bruins after opening as a 2-point favorite. As for the total, the number opened at 155 and that's where it currently sits. (Shop lines at our NCAAB Betting Odds page.)
The Ducks have had plenty of recent success versus the Bruins in previous meetings, covering in seven of their last 10 games against UCLA. The favorite is also a perfect 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings and Oregon is 6-2 against the number in its last eight games coming off a win.
The Ducks can earn a share of the Pac-12 crown with a victory and should get it against a slumping Bruins squad. UCLA doesn't have much hope to crack the NCAA Tournament and the team is coming off a brutal defensive effort versus Stanford on Saturday. (The Cardinal shot 61.2 percent, which was the highest mark by an opponent since Oregon shot 62.3 versus UCLA last January.)
Bet the number down and take Oregon.
