UCLA is 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games following an ATS loss and 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 home games against a team with a losing road record while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 home games.
I’m sticking with UCLA here. I just feel that the Bruins are the far better team and while Washington’s had spots where they’ve provided value from a cover perspective, they’ve been beaten like a drum by the Bruins in the last few meetings. All in all, I just think this is another rough spot for the Huskies so I’ll lay it and play it with UCLA here.
