UCLA vs Oregon Prediction & Pick

UCLA still has the core in place that has helped the team thrive in the NCAA tournament as of late with Tyger Campbell and Jaime Jacquez Jr. What is scary about the Bruins, though, is that a new star has emerged in freshman Amari Bailey. He is shooting an impressive 50.3% from the floor this year.

Oregon is a program that is capable of making some noise in the Pac-12 Tournament, but it's still a team that ranks outside the top 95 in both offensive and defensive efficiency. UCLA is ranked among the top 45 in both of those categories and has posted an average scoring margin of +6.5 on the road.

UCLA has won eight of its last 10 away games, so back the Bruins to squeak this one out in the end.

Final Score Prediction: UCLA: 69 | Oregon: 64

UCLA vs Oregon Best Bet

This is far from an easy matchup for the Bruins as they have lost seven of their last eight games at Matthew Knight Arena. It's important to take note of the little things, though. Oregon commits 13.2 turnovers per home game and faces a defense that forces 16.8 turnovers per game (No. 10 in NCAA).

These teams met back on Dec. 4 as Oregon tallied 15 turnovers in what was a 65-56 loss for the Ducks. Opportunities to score baskets in fast break scenarios give UCLA a huge boost. The Bruins are 6-2-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last nine games in February. They'll get the job done here.

Bet: UCLA Bruins -2.5 (-102)
