The Oregon Ducks will be on the road to take on the UCLA Bruins on Thursday, January 13th.
The tip-off is set for 9:30 ET from Pauley Pavilion.
The Bruins started off as an 11 point favorite and that number is now down to 10.5. The total has gone from 145 to 142.
Oregon has played at a decent level this year, but I cannot say that I have been all that impressed with them. They are going to have to show much more than they have in the first few months.
The Ducks defeated the Oregon State Beavers on Monday by a score of 78-76. The task will be much taller for them on Thursday when they face off with the one of the better teams in the country in UCLA.
Besides when they faced Baylor earlier in the year, they have not faced anyone on the level of the Bruins. They are going to have to play an almost flawless game to beat this crew.
The offense looked pretty good for them in their last game, as five players ended up reaching double figures. The leading scorer for them was Jacob Young, who had 16 points and 4 assists. Eric Williams Jr. also contributed 14 points and 11 boards.
UCLA has had just the year you could ask for. So far, I have really liked what I have seen out of this bunch.
The Bruins are ranked as the number 3 team in the land and they have a record of 10-1. If they are on their game on Thursday, they should be able to make it their 11th win of the season when everything is complete.
They beat the Cal Golden Bears on Saturday by a score of 60-52. It was certainly not a pretty win, but they got the job done, which is the most important thing.
Offensively, this squad was not that sharp in their last outing, but the defense played at very high level. When you allow a team to score just over fifty points, you will win a lot of ball games in college basketball.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Oregon is 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games
- Oregon is 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games against UCLA.
- Oregon is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against an opponent in the Pac-12.
- UCLA is 5-0 SU in their last 5 games.
- UCLA is 6-0 SU in their last 6 games at home.
- The total has gone over in 5 of UCLA’s last 6 games played on a Thursday.
Free Oregon Ducks vs. UCLA Bruins NCAAB Summary:
After a win that was not so convincing in their last outing over the Golden Bears, the Bruins will look to play sharper when they square off with their rival, Oregon Ducks.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: UCLA ATS
Oregon is a solid team, but this is a contest that UCLA really should be able to win. If they want to be considered as one of the better teams in the 2021-2022 season, they will not fool around in a game like this. Even though they won their last game, I was not very impressed with the way they played against Cal.
I feel that the Bruins will play much more of a complete game in this one. Yes, they were off in their last game, but I do not see that happening for a second game in a row.
As the game gets going, I just do not know how the defense for the Ducks is going to stop UCLA. That is the main reason why I do not feel this game will be all that close.
My play is on UCLA at -10.5.
