Point Spread Pick:
The Buffaloes haven’t fared poorly against the Pac 12 overall with a 7-4 record, but they haven’t impressed either. They’re only 1-3 straight up and ATS on the road in the conference with the lowest losing margin by 12. The lines maker has hung a 10.5 on UCLA, but we feel comfortable laying the points and taking a Bruins team who’s last 3 at home were wins over California by 12, Stanford by 17 and Arizona State by 15. Take the UCLA Bruins -10.5
