Arizona State vs UCLA College Basketball Betting Preview
This season has gone far from how they wanted it to go at Arizona State, but they have been able to capture some pride as of late. The Sun Devils have won three straight and now finally have 10 wins on the season. The Sun Devils have won their last two games by an average of 22 points and will try to complete a season sweep of UCLA. While Arizona State has played well on both sides of the ball, it’s been the improvement of their defense that is most impressive. They have given up just under 69 points per game (PPG) on the season, but have given up just 55 PPG over their last three.
Like Arizona State, UCLA has been fairly dominant of late as well. They’ve won three of their last four and have won their last two by a combined 46 points. Although the PAC-12 regular season title is all but Arizona’s at this point, UCLA could really use some wins to propel them to a higher seed in the PAC-12 and NCAA tournament. UCLA has scored 76 points or more in four of their last five games and will need it to come out strong to keep pace with Arizona State.

Arizona State vs UCLA Prediction | College Basketball Betting Picks
UCLA will have revenge on the mind as they will not have forgotten their triple overtime loss at Arizona State quite yet. Both teams shot poorly but in the end, the Sun Devils made the plays when they were needed.
UCLA has the better team and offense and will likely see much more production from their offense. With such a large spread, however, UCLA would either have to put up 80 or more points, or hold Arizona State to under 60 points to have a solid chance to cover. UCLA should win, but this doesn’t have the makings of a massive blowout, especially with the Sun Devils having nothing to lose. Arizona State will cover the spread.
Our college basketball betting Arizona State vs UCLA prediction tonight will be Arizona State covers the spread at BetUS.
For what it’s worth, the ESPN Matchup Predictor gives UCLA a 95.5% chance to win.
