2007-2008 UCLA Bruins College Basketball Betting Odds

College basketball betting odds will have the UCLA Bruins favored in nearly every game this season.

The Bruins return four starters from a team that reached the NCAA Final Four for the second consecutive season.  They will be a serious threat to win versus basketball betting odds all year and a National Championship is very possible for the Bruins this season. College basketball betting odds stats show that the Bruins are led by junior point guard Darren Collison.  Collison averaged 12.7 points per game according to basketball betting stats.  He also averaged 5.69 assists per game according to college basketball betting odds stats. Collison led the Pac-10 with 2.23 steals per game according to college basketball betting odds stats.

UCLA allowed just 59.9 points per game according to college basketball betting odds stats. Junior guard Josh Shipp (13.3 ppg/3.9 rpg) is the team's top returning scorer according to college basketball betting odds stats.

Junior forward Luc Richard Mbah a Moute (8.2 points per game according to basketball betting stats) and senior center Lorenzo Mata (6.6 points per game according to college basketball betting odds stats) give the Bruins inside scoring options. Freshman center Kevin Love is the big key for the Bruins this season.  He is the nation’s top freshman and immediately makes the Bruins a serious contender to win the National Championship. He immediately becomes one of the best players in the country on one of the best teams. He is joined by freshman forward Chace Stanback.  The Bruins have a ton of depth including junior forward Alfred Aboya (4.1 ppg/4.2 rpg according to college basketball betting odds stats) and sophomore guard Russell Westbrook (3.4 ppg according to college basketball betting odds stats).

About the only concern for the Bruins is their free throw shooting according to college basketball betting odds experts.  Except for Collison and Shipp, the rest of the team shoots free throws poorly according to college basketball betting odds stats.  The Pac-10 is one of the toughest conferences in the nation but the Bruins may be the best team in the nation according to basketball betting experts.  They will lose very few games according to college basketball betting odds experts and anything less than a National Championship would be a disappointment.
