4 PM ET - Sunday, the UCLA Bruins are in Colorado to play some basketball. This is our quick free pick write up.

The line has been issued UCLA -4. About 66% of the betting public likes UCLA thus far. This number could change as the game gets closer. But 66% is a good number for an ATP (against the public play).

UCLA has a decent basketball team and has hope for postseason play. They are 19-9 straight up and 13-14-1 against the spread. They score 82 PPG and allows 76. They are coming off a loss to Utah.

Colorado is 15-13 SU and 12-15-1 ATS. They score 71 PPG and allow 72. They are coming off three straight losses to the likes of Washington, Washington State and USC.

Head to head the UCLA Bruins own the Buffs. They are 7-2 SU dating back to 2012. That record goes for the spread as well. Last month these two teams played one another and Colorado pulled off the shocking upset at UCLA. The Bruins were favored by 11 and ended up losing by 9.

My pick in this game is Colorado and here's why:
  1. Colorado already beat UCLA so they know that they can.
  2. The game is at home for Colorado. They are 9-4-1 ATS at home. UCLA is just 3-5 ATS away.
  3. 2/3 of the early public is on UCLA, making this an early ATP play.
