Washington vs. UCLA Handicapping Analysis
NCAA Basketball Betting – Huskies Hope To Wrap Up Pac-12 Title At UCLA
Readers of an NHL trade deadline blog should be done going over the moves that were made by Monday at 3:00 PM ET, and now it’s time to start thinking about college hoops and in the Pac-12, the regular-season crown may not even be enough to get a team like Washington into the NCAA Tournament. However, they’ll be aiming to take it home on Saturday when they head to UCLA, who have their own problems right now.
Washington UCLA Odds – Saturday, 2:00 PM ET
The Huskies (20-8, 13-3 Pac-12) still have to travel to lowly USC on Thursday night, and they’ll be coming off a 59-55 win at Washington State in which Washington had to come back from 13 down in the final 11 minutes of the game and 5dimes players know, if the Huskies make it to the Tournament, they’re going to be a problem. Tony Wroten had 21 points, six rebounds and five assists for the Huskies, who shot 35.8% from the field, but they held the Cougars to 34.6% and Washington State also missed 15 of their 32 free-throw attempts; if they hit half of those and the Huskies are in trouble and those betting March Madness odds will tell you that you need a little luck to get to the dance.
The Bruins (16-13, 9-7 Pac-12) are hosting Washington State on Thursday night, and they will be attempting to bounce back from a 65-63 loss at Arizona in a game they would have won if the Wildcats didn’t have a +12 edge at the charity stripe, but that isn’t the biggest news on campus. Some that buy price per head services may have read the Sports Illustrated report that shed light on drug use and drinking in the UCLA hoops program and the theme of it is that coach Ben Howland has lost control of the program. The Bruins may have other things on their mind that will overshadow Senior Day.
It’s tough to guess who will be the favorite in this contest, even though the Bruins are 4-1 SU and 2-2-1 ATS in their last five meetings at home against the Huskies, with three of the last four falling under the posted total. This UCLA team is in shambles right now from the top down, and the Huskies have their sights set on the regular-season title, although they also have to avoid a trap game at USC, who have only won one Pac-12 game. Wroten could be the favorite for the Pac-12 Player of the Year, and he’ll be the key as the Huskies roll to an easy road in your NCAA basketball betting picks.
