2 units on Northwestern +8 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82) RESULT: WIN
Northwestern put on an impressive performance while defeating Boise State 75-67 as the Wildcats never trailed and it was led by Boo Buie, who scored 22 points, and Chase Audige added 20 points for the Wildcats, who shot a shade below 50 percent and held the Broncos to 40 percent. The Wildcats have been a moneymaker all season with a 20-13 ATS record and they are 6-2 ATS their past eight against .600 teams and 8-3 ATS their past 11 games overall. UCLA is a great defensive squad holding opponents to a .406 shooting percentage, but Northwestern is about on par with the Bruins with a .411 opponent field goal percentage. UCLA is 30-5, but it has shown some vulnerability losing two of three to Arizona which, of course, lost to Princeton on Thursday. The Bruins will cool off after shooting 54 percent against Colgate in the first round. Take the points with Northwestern - Max Play
