The UCLA Bruins will play the California Golden Bears in a PAC-12 game on Saturday night at Haas Pavilion in Berkeley, California. UCLA has won four games in a row, while California has won four of their last five. Let’s take a look at the betting matchup and the UCLA vs California prediction. 

UCLA Preview

The UCLA Bruins are 12-11 (7-5) this season after they defeated Stanford by a score of 82-74 in their last game. UCLA led 35-33 at halftime and they scored 47 points in the second half in the win. The Bruins shot 45.3% from the field and made 11 three pointers in the game. UCLA has also defeated Oregon, Oregon State, and USC during this winning streak. The Bruins are scoring 66.4 points per game with 34.7 rebounds per game and 11.7 assists per game, while allowing 64.2 points against per game this year. Sebastian Mack is averaging 13.5 points per game, 3.7 rebounds per game, and 1.6 steals per game. UCLA is shooting 41.9% from the field, 72.4% on free throws, and 32.5% on three pointers this season.

California Preview

The California Golden Bears are 10-13 (6-6) this year after they defeated USC in overtime by a score of 83-77 in their last game. California led 42-31 at halftime, but they only scored 25 points in the second half, before winning in overtime. The Golden Bears shot 41.4% from the field and made 11 three pointers in the game. California defeated Arizona State by a score of 81-66 in the game prior to USC, but lost to Arizona before that. The Golden Bears are scoring 75.6 points per game with 38 rebounds per game and 12.5 assists per game, while giving up 76.5 points against per game this season. Jaylon Tyson is averaging 20.3 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game. California is shooting 42.9% from the field, 72.7% on free throws, and 34.5% on three pointers this year. 

UCLA vs California Betting Prediction

Both of these teams come into this matchup playing very well in recent games and they are still in the race for the PAC-12. California will have the home court advantage, but their defense has not been good this season. UCLA has won four games in a row and they have allowed 63 points or fewer in three of them. I really like how UCLA is currently playing and they are 2-0 in their last two road games against Stanford and USC. Take the Bruins on the road. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
