UCLA is a very good team but they have yet to win a road game this season. This is one they can.
Stanford is outclassed in this spot this season. Being at home is not going to be enough to overcome a very talented UCLA team.
The Bruins had little trouble with the visiting Washington programs last weekend, winning twice and covering both times. Now they are off to NoCal.
Kris Wilkes is not a great shooter but he knows how to score. He seems to be in the right place at the right time and won’t just jack up shots to get his.
Aaron Holiday is the reason I am so high on UCLA this season. He is a scoring point but knows that he doesn’t have to get his early and he is a good leader.
The Bruins have good size inside. Thomas Welsh is a smooth scorer and Gyorgy Goloman can do the pounding on the boards. this is a good group.
Stanford looks to bounce back after a bitter home loss to rival Cal. There have not been many highlights this season for the Cardinal.
It would be a shame to waste Travis Reid’s tenure. The power forward is averaging 20ppg and is the best player they have had in a while.
Michael Humphrey will make the UCLA bigs earn it inside. Stanford is not known for finesse and he makes you feel it inside.
The Cardinal are really light at guard. They are have players that turn it over too much or can’t shoot. There is no steady hand back there.

Free UCLA Bruins vs. Stanford Cardinal NCAAB Prediction:
The number looks light in this one. Stanford will put forth a good effort but I don’t see them getting good enough guard play to win.
As long as UCLA plays within themselves they can win it going away.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: UCLA -5
Look for Holiday to be the difference maker here. He might outscore both starting guards for Stanford.
