St. Mary's vs UCLA Odds: Will UCLA Repeat Last Year's Run in the NCAA Tournament?

Due to last season's success, the UCLA Bruins haven't flown under the radar this year. However, St. Mary's wasn't getting the love it deserved coming into the Tournament. People's opinions have now changed after the St Mary's Gaels dominated Indiana, 82-53 in the first round of the Tournament in the East Region.

After an underwhelming performance from UCLA over Akron, will St. Mary's take control of its game against UCLA?

Here are the St. Mary's Gaels vs UCLA Bruins odds and picks for the Round of 32 matchup.

St. Mary's vs UCLA Odds: Round of 32

West Coast basketball is usually overlooked. After all, we haven't had a west coast team win the NCAA Tournament in quite some time. However, one of these west coast teams will absolutely be making the Sweet 16. It's our job to figure out which one. The St. Mary's Gaels won't get to the foul line often and aren't aggressive on the offensive end. However, the Gaels shoot 35.5% from deep, 52.6% from inside the arc, and 76.3% from the foul line. St. Mary's also limits turnovers to 16.9% and will get an average amount of offensive rebounds with 27.4% of them per game. UCLA has been a terrific defense and should be able to limit St. Mary's on the glass. From the field, opponents are shooting 32% from deep and 47.3% from inside, so it's not going to be easy for St. Mary's to score points in this game.

UCLA's defense is elite but the offense is as well. That's what makes the Bruins dangerous. UCLA is limiting turnovers to 13.4% per game and earning 31.9% offensive rebounds. From the field, the Bruins are shooting 35.2% from deep and 49.2% from inside the arc. At the line, UCLA is also above average, hitting 73.9% of shots from the foul line. The Gaels, on the other hand, are limiting offensive rebounds to 21.8% and have been effective on the defensive glass throughout the entire season. The Gaels don't defend the three all that well, allowing 34.2% from downtown but have been able to hold teams to 46.6% from inside the arc.

UCLA won't be as effective on the offensive glass in this game but overall, the Bruins should be able to protect the ball and get some really good looks from long range in this game. Meanwhile, St. Mary's doesn't get to the line all that often and UCLA has been just as good of a defense as St. Mary's. It comes down to UCLA's offense. And it's better than St. Mary's.
