Second Round Pointspread Preview: UCLA vs. Florida
|Submitted by |Tags: College Basketball NCAA Tournament UCLA Bruins Florida Gators __ UCLA vs. Florida -6 O/U 133
We cashed with the lower-seeded UCLA Bruins as underdog over Michigan State Thursday and much respect for head coach Ben Howland and his job blending the Bruins and bringing them back to a second place PAC-10 finish. Howland’s trademark defense had UCLA with the league’s best FG defense holding opponents to less than 41%. While he’s at his best as a underdog coach at 38-22 ATS long term, must give the edge to the Gators in this match-up as Billy’s boys are better and playing in their home state with extra fan support. Florida won the SEC regular season title with the SEC’s best shooting team, and the Gators momentum should continue as Florida is on a 11-2 SU run with their only losses to Kentucky (2x) since February 1st. Despite Florida playing at a slower pace, we may see more scoring than expected in a Gators win.
We found our groove and a little green Friday going 5-2 in the NCAA Tournament despite two late, very close ATS losses.
