UCLA vs Arizona State Prediction | College Basketball Betting Picks
Poor Arizona State. They have to face a Bruins team that is coming off of a 10-point loss to the other Arizona team. Meanwhile, the Sun Devils are in the middle of a tough stretch. They have lost four straight games, though two of those games were against USC and another was against the Wildcats team that just knocked off UCLA.
Look for the Bruins defense to show up tonight. They could play so well that the game total goes under. However, the better UCLA vs Arizona State prediction is to simply side with the Bruins to bounce back in a big way. We’ll pick them covering the large point spread in this PAC-12 college basketball game tonight.
For what it’s worth, the ESPN Basketball Power Index gives UCLA an 88.4% chance to win tonight.
