I am not sure what the true ceiling is for either of these teams but you have to like it when the elite programs connect. This should be entertaining.
Kentucky has looked pretty good but I am still not sold yet, meanwhile, I thought UCLA would be better.
The only blemish on their record is that early loss to Kansas but I am not sure about the Wildcats just yet. I am not sure the pieces all fit.
Unlike in year’s past they don’t seem to have established a pecking order…it might happen eventually but where will they turn for buckets when they really need them.
Quade Green might not have been the star of the recruiting class but he has been very impressive running the show. He is the only guy who really takes care of the ball.
Kevin Knox is supposed to be the star and he is leading the team in scoring but he is not at the level of some other UK products.
There is definitely talent on this UCLA team, probably a few NBA players but they have let me down. They have not really challenged when playing good teams.
One of those is PG Aaron Holiday. He has been overshadowed since he arrived in Westwood but he has a smooth game and can be a difference maker in this one.
Kris Wilkes is another that the pro scouts are already talking about. He is super lanky but I can sort of see how his game could translate.
Center Thomas Welsh is one of the most polished players at any position in college basketball. He knows how to play and won’t be overwhelmed by the Kentucky athletes.
CBB Betting Trends:
- UCLA are 3-11 ATS in their last 14 vs. Southeastern.
- UCLA are 10-25 ATS in their last 35 games overall.
Free Kentucky Wildcats vs. UCLA Bruins NCAAB Prediction:
I am guessing that Kentucky is favoured as they are probably the more talented team on paper and have the better record so far.
This is on a neutral but it is a much longer travel spot for UCLA which could be a factor.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: UCLA ATS
I think this will be a pretty sloppy but overall close game. Last 2 minutes and a little more depth for UK decide it.
NCAAB Free Score Prediction: Kentucky 73 – UCLA 70
