2023 NCAA Tournament, second round: No. 7 Northwestern vs. No. 2 UCLA odds

Spread: UCLA -8

Moneyline: UCLA -380, Northwestern +310

Northwestern was able to pick up its second NCAA Tournament win in program history by triumphing over Boise State 75-67 on Thursday. This was a four-point game with just under six to play before the Wildcats were able to go on an 8-2 run to create separation for themselves. Boo Buie led with 22 points, five rebounds, and five assists in the win

UCLA took their loss in the Pac-12 Championship to Arizona personally, but they’re still playing and the Wildcats are now at home. It was a complete performance against UNC-Asheville in an 86-53 win in Round 1, even without their defensive stalwart Jaylen Clark.
