Who We Like: Following UCLA’s impressive win over Stanford, I’m backing the dog in what should be a close matchup. (Especially with Deandre Ayton looked human on Thursday night.)

The underdog is 14-2 against the spread in the last 16 meetings between these two teams while the Bruins have covered in seven of their last nine games against the Wildcats. UCLA is also 9-2 at the betting window in its last 11 games versus a team with a winning percentage above .600, is 7-3 against the spread in its last 10 Pac-12 games and is 5-2 ATS in its last seven games coming off a loss. On the other side, the Wildcats are just 5-17-1 against the spread in their last 23 games when facing a team with a winning record.
