NCAA Tournament Betting -- Stephen F. Austin Makes Another Upset Bid Against UCLA


Stephen F Austin has not lost since a November 23 game at East Tennessee State, in which they apply a lot of full-court pressure like Shaka Smart's VCU club. Obviously the lumberjacks learned their lesson, as they were able to deal with a team that was looking to push the pace. Their 77-75 victory against the Rams went over the posted total of 134 points, and might supply some insight as to how things might go in this game against UCLA, which is an 8.5-point favorite in the NCAA Tournament betting odds, with the total listed at 144 points.

Steve Alford, the first-year head coach with the Bruins, likes to play at a very fast tempo, and his team puts a lot of stock into turning defense into offense, as UCLA is one of the best in the country when it comes to stealing the basketball. Of course, Stephen F Austin has steady people in the backcourt, although NCAA Tournament bettors should keep in mind that this is a very small squad; in fact, UCLA's 6' 9" point guard, Kyle Anderson, is taller than anyone who will be on the starting five of the Lumberjack team.

UCLA seems to have hit its stride. They scored wins by 19 points over Oregon and 25 points over Stanford in the Pac-12 tournament, before beating Arizona as a five-point underdog in the basketball odds, to capture the conference title. Then, in the opening round of the South Regional, they beat Tulsa 76-59.

Stephen F Austin has the unenviable task of trying to slow things down a bit against UCLA, but can they? That is a proposition the experts at Final Score Network have grappled with, and have the answer to.
