UCLA Bruins -9

The UCLA Bruins are the top team in the Pac-12 this season as they sit on top of the conference with a 7-0 record, but the same can’t be said about the California Golden Bears as they sit towards the bottom with a 2-6 mark. The Bruins have shown their ability to score the basketball this season as they are averaging 77.8 PPG, and they should have no problem outscoring the Golden Bears who are only averaging 68.5 PPG as well as missing their leading scorer. The Bruins have a handful of guys who can score the basketball even without Chris Smith in the lineup as 5 different guys are averaging double figures. The Bruins will continue getting better on the defensive side of the court under Mick Cronin, and this should be an easy win for them. Final Score Prediction, UCLA Bruins win and cover ATS 75-64.
