California vs Arizona Expert Predictions


ESPN BPI Prediction Model

The ESPN BPI Prediction Model gives Cal virtually no chance to win this game tonight, with just a 4.1 percent chance of beating Arizona. After all, the Golden Bears are winless at 0-13 in Pac-12 play this season.

College Sports Maven

Both Jake and Jeff, of College Sports Maven, are rolling with the Wildcats in this contest. Neither of them are infatuated with Arizona, but they do feel like the home-court advantage wins out in this one.

Arizona Desert Swarm

Four experts from SB Nation's Arizona Desert Swarm (Brian J. Pedersen, Ronnie Stoffle, Christopher Boan and Ryan Kelapire) all picked the Wildcats to win outright. Only one (Stoffle) picked Arizona not to cover the spread in this one. 


All in all, it's a clean sweep for Arizona playing at home. They'll look to keep the Golden Bears out of the win column in Pac-12 play.
