Not a Great Bears Season

Things have not been all roses for the California Golden Bears this season. This is a team that started the season 3-7. Some of their early season losses were bad, with Pacific, Montana State and UTEP all in the same month. A recent surge of wins over Washington State and Stanford helped January finish strong.

The Bears boast one of the top scorers in all of the Pac-12. Jaylon Tyson is scoring 20.6 points per game. He is one of three scoring in double figures for California. Tyson went for 14 against Stanford, but had 30 in the win over Washington State. It was his second 30+ point scoring game in their last five outings.

The Bears have this game, and then a trip to Arizona State on Saturday. Next week, California gets the Los Angeles based teams at home. They will host USC on Wednesday and UCLA on Saturday.

Blowout City on Thursday

This game is not going to be pretty. This is not an evenly matched basketball game. The Arizona Wildcats are going to score a bunch of points. In fact, Arizona may get to 100 in this game. Do not be surprised if this is one of the biggest blowouts of the entire season in the Pac-12. There is just not a lot of data that shows California can hang around in this game.

Our final bet for the game on Thursday is the Arizona Wildcats -18 over the California Bears. We have a final score prediction of Arizona 97-73 over California.  Enjoy the game and best of luck with all your betting!
