#5 UCLA Bruins vs California Golden Bears. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #5 UCLA Bruins. The UCLA Bruins are an amazing team that only dropped one game this season, to Gonzaga. They have defeated Villanova, Colorado, and Marquette so far. All of those victories were by nine points or more.

 

The offense and defense are both outstanding, and this is a match they should easily win. They score 12 points per 100 possessions more than California and have superior defensive metrics. Furthermore, the Golden Bears are respectable, although they struggled against tough opponents.

 

They dropped to Florida, Seton Hall, and Utah in recent years. They’re averaging only 103 points per 100 possessions and can’t keep up with the Bruins in terms of scoring. The UCLA Bruins will win to a predicted score of 83-64.
