It appears that even with plenty of seats UA waits till the last minute (24 hours) in the hope that people will either buy full fare Biz or pay $1000 and up for an upgrade. Happened to me all last year on flights regardless of city pairs! I always cleared just after check-in and declining the upgrade offer.
