UCLA vs. Michigan Pick

UCLA vs. Michigan College Basketball Predictions Against The Spread

Can Michigan pick up a win at home over UCLA when the two meet in a key non-conference game today at Noon ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Michigan is the slight favorite in this contest, as the Wolverines are getting odds of -4.5 points against UCLA. The over/under total for the game is listed at 147 points. Today’s game takes place from Crisler Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan and will air live on CBS.

UCLA is coming off a 106-73 win over Detroit last weekend to improve to 7-1 on the season. The Bruins are just 3-4 against the spread on the season but have covered in three of their last four games. UCLA is posting 86.8 points per game on offense while allowing 75.1 per contest defensively. Aaron Holiday is leading the team with 16.5 points and 5.5 assists per game while Thomas Welsh is adding 12.5 points and 10.9 rebounds per contest.

Michigan is coming off a 71-62 loss at Ohio State to drop to 7-3 on the season. The Wolverines are 4-5 against the spread on the season and 2-2 ATS at home. Michigan is averaging 72.3 points per game on offense while allowing 63.2 per game on defense. Moritz Wagner is leading Michigan with 15.4 points and 8.5 rebounds per game. Charles Matthews is adding 14.1 points and 4.5 rebounds per contest.

Bet on UCLA vs. Michigan

UCLA has won five of its last seven meetings with Michigan, with the Bruins going 4-2 against the spread in the last six encounters. UCLA has some struggles lately, but the Bruins have covered the spread in five straight meetings with Big Ten opponents. Michigan is just 1-3-2 ATS in their last six against Pac-12 opponents. I expect UCLA to be a little too much for Michigan, which still is figuring out its rotation. The public betting is slightly with Michigan, but I like the Bruins on the road.
