In their last games: UCLA beat Oregon 70-68 and Oregon State beat USC 76-75 in OT.

The Bruins shot the ball well and were solid on the boards in their win over Oregon, but the key to their win was their defense, which held the Ducks to 39.6% shooting. UCLA outscored Oregon by 6 points in the 2nd half.

In their win over USC the Beavers were big favorites at home facing a Trojans’ team that only has one conference win. Both teams had a relatively even FG%, but the Beavers got to the free throw line 14 more times and had 11 more rebounds.

In last season’s only meeting between these 2 teams UCLA was at home and beat Oregon State 74-64.

Point Spread Pick:

The Bruins are a strong 17-4 on the season but keep in mind that 3 of those losses came away from home. The Beavers have been a losing proposition against the line for backers, but have lost only 2 home games with neither margin greater than today’s point spread. Oregon State has covered the last 3 in this series and the home team has gotten the W in 3 straight. We think that the Beavers will be more focused here and while we won’t call for the outright upset we do believe that Oregon State will not allow UCLA to extend the margin. Take the Oregon State Beavers +5
