Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Arizona Wildcats will play the California Golden Bears in a PAC-12 Conference Game on Saturday evening at California Memorial Stadium in Berkeley, California.

The Arizona Wildcats are 2-1 this season after they defeated North Dakota State by a score of 31-28 last week. This was a back and fourth game all night, but Arizona was able to play great defense in the fourth quarter for the win. The Arizona offense is averaging 28.7 points per game with 268 passing yards per game and 122.3 rushing yards per game. Jayden de Laura has thrown for 748 yards, six touchdowns, and four interceptions for the Wildcats this season. Michael Wiley has rushed for 131 yards and two scores, while Jacob Cowing has caught 21 passes for 253 yards and five touchdowns for Arizona. The Arizona defense is giving up 29 points per game and 355 yards per game.

The California Golden Bears are 2-1 this season after they lost to Notre Dame by a score of 24-17 in Week 3. California led this game going into the fourth quarter but wasn’t able to hold Notre Dame and came away with the loss. The California offense is averaging 23.7 points per game with 243.3 passing yards per game and 117 rushing yards per game. Jack Plummer has thrown for 730 yards, five touchdowns, and two interceptions for the Golden Bears this season. Jaydn Ott has rushed for 189 yards and one touchdown, while Jeremiah Hunter has caught 16 passes for 223 yards and one score for Cal. The California defense is allowing 17 points per game and 331 yards per game.

Arizona is 9-24 ATS in their last 33 road games and 3-12 ATS in their last 15 games on turf. The over is 3-0-1 Arizona’s last 4 road games. California is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 conference games. The under is 22-8 in California’s last 30 conference games. The underdog is 6-0 ATS in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

Arizona was able to avoid losing to an FCS team last week, but will have to travel to California in this game. California played very well against Notre Dame and almost came out of South Bend with the win. Cal has the better defense in this matchup and I think that will be the difference here. I like the Golden Bears to win.
