Alabama State Hornets
Boy oh boy, have things gone bad for this Alabama State team so far this year. I am sure the last thing they want to do is play one of the best teams in the country.
The Hornets last played on Saturday, where they lost to the Pepperdine Waves by a score of 79-62. It could get ugly for them on Wednesday when they go against UCLA.
This crew has faced a mix of very average teams and good teams. Regardless, they have not faced anyone on the level of the Bruins. I do not know where they even begin when it comes to stopping this team.
I cannot say that the struggles for this team are all that surprising. When you do not have the talent to keep up with the opposition, you are not going to do a whole lot of winning and that is exactly what is happening with them right now.
In the early going, UCLA has looked very good. It makes total sense why they are the number 4 ranked team in the nation. I feel like they could give just about anyone a good game.
The Bruins have started off their year with a record of 8-1. It would shock me beyond belief if they did not make it 9-1 after the game is over on Wednesday.
These guys picked up an impressive win on Saturday against Marquette by a score of 67-56. The only criticism I have about this team so far is they did not play well at all when they went against Gonzaga. If they could have figured out a way to knock off the Bulldogs, it would have been a huge moment for their program.
I was very impressed with the way this defense played in their last game because their offense certainly was not great. It is not easy to win a game when you score just under 70 points.

Free Alabama State Hornets vs. UCLA Bruins NCAAB Summary:
I look for UCLA to have control of this game from the minute the ball is tipped.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Over 147
With a game against UNC looming, the Bruins cannot fool around in this game with the Hornets. There is no excuse why they cannot win this game handily.
I expect there to be plenty of scoring in this game and most of it will probably come from UCLA.
I just have no clue how Alabama State is going to stop this high-powered offense. I could see the Bruins putting up 95 points on their own for goodness sake. ASU may not score a ton, but I do feel they can muster up enough where it hits the over.
Give me the over of 147 here.
