California Golden Bears
After starting the season 4-0 with some decisive wins, reality hit for the Golden Bears and they have found it troubling to find any form of consistency.
They most recently got bludgeoned by USC where they lost by over 30 points and failed to cover the +11 spread. They look to get back into the win column against a struggling UCLA.
California has a struggling team on the offensive side of the ball as only two players average double digit points per game. Guard Matt Bradley leads all Golden Bears with 17.4 points per game.
Kareem South averages just over 10 points a game and leads the team in steals per game. They will both need big performances to make up for the debacle against USC.
California’s offense is one of the worst in college basketball this year. They average less than 65 points per game and allow near 70 points per game.
California is accustomed to being outrebounded on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball. UCLA, however, is a good rebounding team. Look for that to play a huge part in this game.
UCLA has been somewhat awful since upsetting Washington earlier this month. They have lost their last three and each loss has been by at least 8 points.
They were favored in two of those three losses and most recently lost to Stanford. That marked the third straight game where they didn’t cover the spread. They hope to right those wrongs here against another team that trajectory is downward.
UCLA, like California, has trouble scoring and scoring in bulk. Chris Smith is the only player that is averaging double digit points per game with 12.1.
Jalen Hill is second on the team with 9.9 points per game and leads the team in rebounds per game with 7.4 and blocks per game with 1.1. They will need to increase their production if they hope to finish this season strong.
UCLA scores just over 70 points per game and shoots 42.9% from the field. California has a better shooting percentage than UCLA and is a much better three points shooting team.
That could be the decider in what should be a close game.

Free California Golden Bears vs. UCLA Bruins NCAAB Prediction: For two teams that are dreadful ATS, 8 points is a lot. For two offenses that are dreadful, 131 is a lot.
For a team that has been as bad as UCLA, 8 points is a thick spread that I have trouble getting behind. Both of these offenses are somewhat inept and I expect that to be on full display here. DOUBLE PICK.
