The UCLA Bruins (18-8) host the Oregon Ducks (17-9) in a Pac 12 game at the Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles, California on Saturday, February 17, 2018, at 10:15 PM ET. On the NCAA betting board, UCLA is a -5 home favorite on the point spread line with the total line at 151.5.

In their last game, Oregon was on the road in Southern California where they lost to USC 72-70. The lines maker had them as a +4.5 underdog in the game resulting in a point spread cover for their backers, and the 142 put up on the scoreboard fell short of the 146.5 line. MiKyle McIntosh led the Ducks picking up 23 points on 9 of 13 shooting and three starters on the team had at least 11 points. Jonah Mathews was the high scorer for the Trojans with 20 points on 7 of 11 shooting, and Chimezie Metu had a double-double with 18 points and ten rebounds. For the game, Oregon only shot 42.6% from the field while they allowed USC to shoot 51.8%. Oregon had won two in a row before their loss to USC that moved their W/L record in the Pac-12 to 7-6.

UCLA was at home in their latest where they knocked off Oregon State 75-68. The seven-point victory covered the -6.5 betting line and the 143 points fell well short of the closing total line. Aaron Holiday was the high scorer for the Bruins racking up 17 points on 4 of 13 shooting with Thomas Welsh having a big game with 15 points and 17 rebounds.

UCLA has won five of their last six games and is 9-5 in Pac 12 on hold second place in the conference.

Oregon Ducks at UCLA Bruins Prediction 2/17/18

UCLA lost a close one on the road against Oregon back in January falling by three. The Bruins got off to a slow start and had trouble with turnovers in the game turning the ball over 13 times while the Ducks had only 8. They return home where they're 13-2 overall and 7-1 in conference games straight up and are an excellent 5-2-1 versus the spread. Oregon plays tough for the most and does have a positive ATS road record, but I don't think that they get off to a fast start in the rematch and UCLA's depth is the difference here helping them pull away late.
