UCLA vs Utah Prediction Tonight
Just 0-3-1 against the spread (ATS) over their last 4 games, a matchup against Utah is exactly what the doctor ordered for UCLA. Losers of 6 straight and only 1-5 ATS over that time, the Utes are the perfect team for the Bruins to get going against.
Despite their recent struggles, UCLA still boasts a top-20 offense and top-30 defense. With March Madness darling Johnny Juzang leading the way, the Bruins are a deep, balanced team that has rightful National Title aspirations.
UCLA should be able to dominate a Utah defense that Bart Torvik ranks as the 175th-best in the country in adjusted efficiency. The Utes do not rebound well (176th in defensive rebounding rate) and do not force turnovers (a horrendous 349th in defensive turnover percentage). Against a Bruins squad that is 37th in offensive rebounding rate and 7th in offensive turnover percentage, that spells disaster.
The Bruins were 27-of-35 on 2-point shots in their last game against Oregon State. But even if the shots aren’t falling for UCLA, they’ll have enough possessions and second-chance opportunities to let their offense flourish.
I predict a blowout in this one and love the value we’re getting on UCLA -9. Their recent ATS woes are giving us value on the Bruins and as bettors, we should rejoice. UCLA -9 is my best bet and I feel comfortable taking it up to -12.
