Mick Cronin's teams have a history of playing great defense with generally low-scoring games, but it's taken almost a full season for this Bruin team to fully acquire those traits. UCLA went UNDER for the third time in four games with its 51-49 victory over Michigan, and it went UNDER by a whopping 37 points as both teams shot 40%. The Bruins have held their last three opponents to 37.9% shooting and an average of only 24.3 points in the first half. The Bruins hit only 3 of 13 3-point shots against the Wolverines, which were held to 3 of 11 themselves. Gonzaga has stayed UNDER four of its past six games as its opponents can never get on track to even make the game competitive. However, UCLA is the type of team that can at least keep it relatively close. The Bulldogs are 15-7 UNDER their past 22 NCAA Tournament games. I have two picks on this game for you. Play the First-Half UNDER and the full game UNDER for a Max Play.
