The Oregon Ducks and the UCLA Bruins will match up on the college basketball court Saturday.

The Ducks are sitting at 15-11 this year. After winning consecutive games over California and Stanford, Oregon has lost their last two versus Oregon State and USC.

In the loss to the Trojans, Oregon’s Louis King was the top scorer with 16 points, six rebounds and three assists. Victor Bailey was the only other Ducks player in double-figures with 10 points alongside two rebounds and one assist.

Over on the UCLA side, they’re 14-13 this year. The Bruins are 2-1 in the last three games, falling to Stanford but taking out California and Oregon State during that span of outings.

In the win over the Beavers, UCLA’s top scorer was Moses Brown, who doubled up on 14 points with 11 rebounds. Jaylen Hands added 12 points and eight assists for the Beavers in that one, and three other players finished with 10 points.

The Ducks are 1-4 ATS in their last five road games and 1-4 ATS in their last five overall. Oregon is 1-4 ATS in the last five versus the Pac-12 and 0-4 ATS in their last four Saturday games.

Meanwhile, the Bruins are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games and 1-4 ATS in their last five home games. UCLA is 3-9 ATS in their last 12 after an ATS loss and 1-5 ATS in their last six versus the Pac-12.

Well, that’s two straight bad losses for the Ducks, and neither Oregon State (72-57) nor USC (66-49) should have posed that big of a problem for Oregon.

UCLA has had a couple of scoring gaffes lately as well, but in a comfortable home game here I think they’ve got the advantage cover-wise, I’m going Bruins.

Pick:
UCLA Bruins -2.5
