Pepperdine at UCLA

1.5 units on Game Total UNDER 152 -109 (risk 1.5 to return 2.88) RESULT: LOSS
Pepperdine likes to run but this is only their second road game and they step way up in competition. In their other road game, the Waves were favored at Cal State Fullerton but lost, 74-71, turning it over 17 times. That game went UNDER the total and Pepperdine is 23-6 UNDER after playing two straight as chalk, as well as 30-16 UNDER after two straight non-conference tilts. UCLA is happy to be home after losing to Illinois and Baylor in Las Vegas. They opened the season with three straight wins allowing just 58.3 points per game. And UCLA is 58-38 UNDER the total against teams that force 12 or fewer turnovers per contest. Play Pepperdine/UCLA UNDER the total.
