The Stanford Cardinals go to Los Angeles, California, to take on the UCLA Bruins on Wednesday at the Pauley Pavilion. The Cardinals are coming off of a three-game winning streak, defeating the California Bears, Washington Huskies, and the Washington State Cougars in the process. 

The Stanford Cardinals are 14-2 on the season and has been one of the best teams in all of college basketball so far this season. The Cardinals are also undefeated in their conference and have now been recognized as one of the top 25 teams in the NCAA, being ranked 25th currently.

The UCLA Bruins are coming off of a two-game losing streak, as they defeated the Washington Huskies three games ago, snapping another losing streak that they were on. UCLA has lost the likes of UNC in their last five, but have also lost to CSF as well, losing to a wide range of teams in terms of talent.

The Bruins are 8-8 on the season, playing very inconsistent as they started out great, winning four straight games, but now have lost four of their last five games. The Bruins are also only 1-2 in the conference and need a win in this game for confidence. 

Stanford is 12-4 ATS this season
Cardinal are 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a straight-up win of more than 20 points.
UCLA is 6-9 ATS this season
Bruins are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games following a double-digit loss at home.

The Stanford Cardinals are a much better team than the UCLA Bruins at the moment. The Cardinals are currently the top team in the Pac-12 Conference and have set themselves as the standard in the conference so far as the only undefeated team in the Pac-12. UCLA has certainly struggled this season, and I see both cases continuing, at least for this game. The favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings, and I think the Stanford Cardinals will win this one easily. Final Score Prediction, Stanford Cardinals win 77-67.
