This has the making of one of the best games of the weekend. The college basketball odds makers also realize it could come down to the wire.

UCLA vs Kentucky Trends

Both teams have positive trends, but it is the negative ones that stand out. The Bruins are 3-10 against the spread (ATS) in their last 13 games against the SEC and the Wildcats are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 NCAA Tournament games.

UCLA vs Kentucky Predictions

The Bruins is getting the attention at the betting window and that is mainly because the Bruins have already beaten the Wildcats. Early in December the Bruins beat Kentucky by five points. This time on a neutral court the Bruins are just small favorites. Both teams will score as they both average in the 90’s as the best scoring offenses in the league, but the edge is to Kentucky.  Kentucky had five players score in the first game and although they lost, this will be a different outcome.
