Arizona vs. UCLA prediction, line: Take the Wildcats

UCLA enters Saturday tied for first place with Oregon in the Pac-12 standings. The Bruins, however, have a tough test ahead of them with Arizona rolling into Westwood.

The Wildcats will have revenge on their minds after a 65-52 loss to UCLA on Feb. 8, though they committed only nine turnovers to the Bruins’ 18.

Arizona has the most dominant post player in this game: Zeke Nnaji, who is averaging 16.3 points and 8.7 rebounds per game.

He also gives the Wildcats a block per game and alters many more shots than those he blocks.

UCLA ranks 275th among Division I teams in the percentage of its shots that come from 3-point range, but the Bruins may need to duplicate the 9-of-17 3-point shooting performance from the first meeting to beat Arizona again.

UCLA also ranks 232nd in 3-point shooting percentage, so things should regress to the mean this time, giving Arizona a chance to hand the Pac-12 co-leaders a loss.

The play: Arizona, -2¹/₂.
