4* Free Week 7 NCAA Betting Pick: Washinton -1.5
On offense, the UCLA Bruins prefer to slow the game down and establish their running game. Between the two team’s offenses, UCLA has the edge, scoring 6.0 more points per game than Washington. However, on defense, the Huskies are the superior unit giving up 5.0 fewer points per game than the Bruins.
This explains why this game figures to be so close. Both teams are near the NCAA average in plays per game, so there is no mismatch in the style of play. I don’t see anything special in UCLA’s offense and if the Huskies can lock down their running game, it will be a long night for the Bruins.
