Cal Golden Bears
A lot of teams in the Pac-12 have looked good this season, but I would not say that Cal has been one of them. To me, they just have not been consistent enough.
The Golden Bears last played on Sunday, where the lost to the Arizona Wildcats by a score of 96-71. They will once again get a chance to play one of the better teams in the conference when they hit the road to take on the Bruins.
For the most part, when they have played teams that are better than them, things have not gone so well for them. That is going to have to change as the year goes on, but there is no cleary no guarantee of that.
I know that the Wildcats are a very good team on offense, but this group did not play well at all on defense in that game. It is pretty hard to win games in college hoops when you allow almost 100 points.
UCLA just keeps on playing at a high level. It is hard not to like what these guys have done so far this season.
The Bruins come into this ball game with a record of 14-2 and they are ranked as the number 7 team in America and I would expect them to only get a better ranking as the year goes on.
This club beat the Arizona Wildcats on Tuesday by a score of 75-59. That was a very impressive victory for them over the team that was ranked at #3.
Both Johnny Juzang and Jules Bernard had 15 points in their last win. Also, Cody Riley chipped in 12 points.

Free Cal Golden Bears vs. UCLA Bruins NCAAB Summary:
Things will not get any easier for Cal as they face this UCLA team on the road. The road team is going to have play one heck of a game in order to pull off this upset.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: UCLA ATS
These teams met earlier and the Bruins did what they had to do against them. They will look to have similar results when they square off on Thursday night.
I feel that we are at a point in the season now where the Bruins are rolling and I do not think anyone in their conference is really going to be able to stop them.
When the offense gets going for UCLA, I do not feel that Cal will have many answers. I know this is a high one to lay, but I do not picture this being all that close of a game.
I like UCLA laying the points here.
