The UCLA Bruins are 16-11 this season and they have won five of their last seven games. UCLA is averaging 71.3 points and they are shooting 42.7 percent while defensively they are allowing 68.2 points and their opponents are shooting 41.7 percent. UCLA is 2-7 o the road and 8-6 in the Pac-12.
Arizona is 4-0 against the spread in their last four home games, 8-1 against the spread against the Pac-12, and 7-1 against the spread following a win. UCLA is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games, 3-7 against the spread following a loss, and 3-9 against the spread in their last 12 road games. The underdog has covered the point spread in six of the last seven meetings of these two.
The total is set at 138.5 but I don't see it getting that high so my free pick is the under. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as the App.
