Opening Odds Analysis

The Bruins opened as 11-point favorites in this Pac-12 showdown and have since been bet down to UCLA -10. After opening at 145 points, the total received heavy betting action on the UNDER to move the line all the way down to 140.5 points. The OVER is 8-1 in Oregon’s last nine games.

Oregon News & Notes

Five different Ducks scored at least 10 points in Oregon’s 78-76 road win over the Oregon State Beavers on Monday night. Oregon moved to 3-0 SU over its last three games with the win but failed to cover the spread as 4.5-point road favorites, falling to 2-6 ATS over its last eight games in the process.

Will Richardson had a rare off-night with only 10 points on 4-for-11 shooting against the Beavers, snapping a streak of five straight games with at least 15 points.

The Ducks have compiled a 7-2 SU and 4-5 ATS record at home this season but have struggled in their games away from Eugene. Oregon is 2-4 SU and 0-6 ATS across two road games and four neutral-site games with an 0-2 SU and ATS record as an underdog.

UCLA News & Notes

Jaime Jaquez Jr. and Tyger Campbell combined for 31 points in UCLA’s 60-52 road win over the California Bears on Saturday. The Bruins just barely failed to cover the spread as 8.5-point favorites, falling to 2-3 ATS over their current five-game winning streak. UCLA has won those five games by an average margin of 14.2 points.

With four of UCLA’s five starters averaging over 12.8 points per game, the Bruins rank 24th in the nation in scoring with 80.5 points per game. UCLA has passed the eye test to date en route to a No. 3 ranking in the AP Top 25 poll, but the team’s 83-63 loss to the Gonzaga Bulldogs remains as a major blemish. Upcoming games against Arizona and USC will be good indicators of how strong this Bruins squad is.

How Oregon Will Cover

Oregon managed to stay competitive in a 78-70 loss against the Baylor Bears by jumping out to a hot start at home. Considering their struggles away from home this season, the Ducks need a quick start here to settle their nerves and quiet the crowd if they hope to cover the spread.

How UCLA Will Cover

UCLA will have both home-court advantage and the clear edge in offensive talent going for it in this matchup. With a deep starting lineup that can spread the wealth on offense, the Bruins should be able to outscore the Ducks and cover the spread barring a particularly bad day in either zone.
