UCLA vs. San Diego State Betting Prediction
The Bruins are 5-0-1 against the spread in their last six games overall and they’ve cashed in four straight road games dating back to last season. UCLA is also 3-1-1 against the number in its last five games when favored, although it’s worth noting that the Bruins are just 10-28-1 at the betting window in their last 39 games when listed as road chalk. Making matters even more conflicting from the spread standpoint is the fact that the Aztecs are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games as a home underdog, but are just 1-4 against the number in their last five home games overall.
Thus, the better play tonight in my eyes is the under, which is 5-1 in the Aztecs’ last six home games and 21-5 in their last 26 games as a home underdog. The under is also 11-3 in their last 14 games as an underdog and is 6-2 in their last eight games overall. For what it’s worth, the under has also gone 4-0-1 in the Bruins’ last five games played on Wednesday.
