Arizona Wildcats vs California Golden Bears Predictions 2/9/2023


To end a seven-game losing run, the California Golden Bears (3-20, 10-13-0 ATS) will need to win this game. The Bears suffered a 61-46 defeat to Utah on Sunday, dropping their conference record to 2-10.


Cal’s home record is 3-10. Over the past two games, the Bears are 2-0. With a five-point deficit at the break, Cal managed to keep this game close by restricting Utah to just 34.4% shooting, including just 4-17 from three-point range.

Kuany Kuany contributed 11 points and seven rebounds, and Lars Thiemann scored 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting.


California is ranked 251st according to KenPom. It is not unexpected given that they average 99.7 points for every 100 possessions, ranking 287th overall, and allow 106.5 points per 100 possessions, ranking 203rd overall.

#4 Arizona Wildcats vs California Golden Bears. The NCAAB pick for this game is the California Golden Bears. The previous time these teams met, the Wildcats defeated Cal by just 13 points, failing to cover the spread.


The fact that this squad rested its starters, despite having won five of their last six matches against the spread, prevents them from simply dominating their opponents.


This team wants to be rested as the competition period approaches. So they will let others play if they start strong and lead by 15+ points at the half. They are unable to cover the spread as a result.


In the most recent game, they did easily defeat the Beavers, although Oregon State handled the bulk of the work. California excels at remaining competitive.


The Wildcats should win by a margin of 14 points since they struggle to score but play excellent defense. The California Golden Bears will win to a predicted score of 81-62.
