UCLA (13-11, 8-5) has been one of the sneakiest teams in the Pac-12, putting the top of the conference on alert. Next on the schedule for UCLA is hosting Colorado (16-8, 7-6), which is a compelling matchup for NCAAB games today.

In the Buffalos’ last game, they fell to Arizona 99-79, losing on their home courbruit for the first time this season. On the other hand, the Bruins now have five straight, narrowly beating California 61-60 in their last game.

Colorado vs UCLA Moneyline Pick: UCLA (Ev)

Given the recent trends, it is hard not to trust UCLA little when making picks on college basketball spreads. One big reason is that the Bruins have covered seven of their last 10 games. A 7-3 record has also helped that out during that time.

What makes this run even more appealing for college basketball picks is that UCLA has been the underdog in most of its covers and wins. Specifically, the Bruins have covered seven of their last eight games. The Bruins were the underdog every time they covered, with only one spread bigger than five points.

This has been enough of a trend to start backing picks on UCLA, and it can possibly cover in most matchups. If the spread is close, there is a good chance UCLA also wins. It has also helped that UCLA has the best defense in the conference, allowing 65.8 points per game against Pac-12 opponents.

On top of that, Colorado has had its issues. The Buffaloes have only one win over the previous four games and a 1-6 record on the road this season.

 

Colorado vs UCLA Over/Under Pick: Under 135½

This will be a tricky over/under line for college basketball odds. UCLA’s defense has allowed the fewest points per game this season, only backing its stance to be the best in the conference. The defense has been the most significant factor in the Bruins’s recent success, allowing more than 65 points once over the last five wins.

On the other hand, Colorado does have the individual offensive talent to make things interesting. KJ Simpson is leading the team in scoring at 19.4 while Tristan Da Silva (15.5) and Cody Williams (14.0) have also had good offensive seasons.

While Colorado does have the offensive talent in this game, UCLA’s defense has shown the ability to slow it down. Simpson and Da Silva do most of the heavy lifting, and if UCLA can take them out of the game, the under is the best betting option.

 

Colorado vs UCLA Player Prop Pick: Tristan Da Silva Under 13.5 points (-103)

Given how good UCLA’s defense has been recently and being the home team, there is a chance that Colorado struggles offensively. Simpson will be the main target for UCLA’s defense, but so will Da Silva, with both players putting up 20 points in the loss to Arizona. That could lead to Da Silva struggling more than usual in this game, hitting the under on his points.
