The two leaders atop the Pac-12 meetup this Saturday, as the USC Trojans take on the UCLA Bruins at Galen Center in Los Angeles, California. Plenty of eyes should be on this one Saturday evening with the USC Trojans being instilled by the bookmakers, as 3 points favorites which has brought in 61% of bets on the home team making for a pretty intriguing betting spot.
UCLA was unable to play their last match against Oregon due to postponement, so their last game was their gritty win over the Oregon State Beavers, as they won that game 57-52. That game really should not have been that close, though, as UCLA could not shoot the ball going 32.7% from the field and only 25% from deep and suffice it to say they won’t be beating the Trojans with a repeat of that shooting performance.
I do expect significantly better from UCLA here against their rivals, though, as we have a big enough sample size in terms of team shooting to know that was just a down game with this team normally shooting around 45/37 in terms of Field/3-Point shooting.
Although the shooting needs to improve, and again I expect it to, this team lives off of it’s defense, as they only allow 67.1 points per game, so they definitely give themselves some room to be mediocre on offense with their lock down defense.
The USC Trojans also come into this one with a very solid defense, but for me, they have the better offense too, as they have a legit star to look towards to get them going on the offensive end of the floor in Evan Mobley. Mobley is super efficient from the floor hitting at 58% and is also really good on the boards averaging about 9 rebounds per game and he will once again need to play a big role offensively and defensively for the Trojans in order to pick up the W here on Saturday.
The USC Trojans are also riding high coming in to this one off the back of 3 straight wins with their last game against Stanford being especially impressive, as they had to withstand a flurry of Cardinal three pointers, as they came into that game hot shooting 43.8% from deep.
- Over is 5-1 in Bruins last 6 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600.
- Over is 4-1 in Bruins last 5 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600.
- Over is 5-2 in Bruins last 7 overall.
- Over is 12-5 in Bruins last 17 road games following three or more consecutive home games.
- Over is 5-1 in Trojans last 6 games as a favorite.
- Over is 7-3 in Trojans last 10 games as a home favorite.
Free UCLA Bruins vs. USC Trojans NCAAB Prediction:
No I do not expect this to be end to end stuff, but this total is very low and I think UCLA will be able to shoot a bit better here against Trojans despite their solid defense. I also think the Trojans offer enough on offense to help this one get over the total, as it is only sitting at 135.5 which I think makes the over worth a shot.
