Explosive UCLA, Oregon Offenses Look To End UNDER Streak

UCLA and Oregon can both score with the best of them, but six of the past seven meetings between the Bruins and Ducks have gone UNDER. That could change Wednesday, as UCLA is second in the nation in scoring and Oregon has scored 80-plus points five times this season.

Shark Bites
  • Oregon is 8-3 ATS in its past 11 games against UCLA.
  • Dillon Brooks averaged 20 points and 7 rebounds in 2 games against UCLA last season.
  • UCLA’s average scoring margin of +21.8 is the fifth-highest in the country.

The Bruins have been the most exciting team in the country, as they average 95.8 points while leading the nation in assists and shooting 55 percent from the floor. The freshman tandem of TJ Leaf and Lonzo Ball has been the catalyst of this offensive onslaught, as Leaf is averaging a team-high 17.5 ppg while Ball’s 8.3 assists per game is second in the nation.

Traveling to Eugene has been a near insurmountable task, as Oregon has won 33 consecutive home games. The Ducks are hoping to get leading scorer Chris Boucher in the lineup after the 6’10’’ forward missed the past two games with a sprained ankle. Preseason all-American Dillon Brooks has been slotted in Boucher’s spot in the past two games, but has been inconsistent.
