The Weber State Wildcats are 2-4 on the season and they look to be clearly over matched in this spot. Weber State has played the 142nd ranked schedule and it looks to get less difficult as they get into Big Sky conference play. Davion Berry leads the Wildcats averaging 18.7 points per game. Jeremy Senglin is averaging 12.7 points, Kyle Tresnak is averaging 11.5 points and 5.8 rebounds, and Joel Bolomboy is averaging 8.8 points and 9.0 rebounds. Weber State is averaging 74.7 points per game and they are shooting 46.2 percent from the floor while defensively they are allowing 68.2 points and their opponents are shooting 39.4 percent. This looks to be the toughest game on Weber State’s schedule.
UCLA is 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games, 3-1-1 against the spread against the Big Sky, and 4-1 against the spread against a team with a losing record. Weber State is 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 non-conference games, 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 road games, and 4-1 against the spread against the Pac-12.
UCLA has not been at their best recently and look for Steve Alford to let his team have a feel good moment here.
