Which Arizona vs. California picks offer the best value when the two squads clash in Week 4? Check out our Arizona-California picks.

The Wildcats and Golden Bears are both 2-1, with their losses coming to Power 5 schools. Arizona has the more impressive wins this season, defeating San Diego State and North Dakota State, but the Golden Bears are favored by a field goal, one week after their seven-point loss to Notre Dame.

Here are our top picks for Arizona vs. California (odds via DraftKings Sportsbook and PointsBet; pick confidence based on a 1-to-5-star scale).

Arizona vs. California Picks

  • Arizona +3 (-110 via DraftKings Sportsbook) ★★★
  • Under 50.5 (-110 via DraftKings Sportsbook) ★★
  • Prop: Either team to win by 7 or less (+135 via PointsBet) ★★★★

Arizona vs. California ATS Pick

Arizona +3 (-110) ★★★

The Wildcats have won eight of the last 10 matchups in this series, including the last two on the road. Quarterback Jayden de Laura had his first turnover-free game last week against North Dakota State, and it made all the difference as the Wildcats pulled off the win.

The Golden Bears don’t have an impressive result on their resume this season. They barely beat UNLV, and it’s hard to know what their seven-point loss to Notre Dame means. If de Laura can take care of the football again this weekend, the Wildcats could win this game outright.

Arizona vs. California O/U Pick

Under 50.5 (-110) ★★

The Under has hit in six of the last 10 matchups between these two, including last year’s 10-3 Arizona victory. The Golden Bears allow just 17 points per game, but that says more about the strength of their opponents than their defense.

The Wildcats’ offense has cleared 30 twice this season, but when they played Mississippi State, they managed just 17. Cal’s defense may not be as good as the Bulldogs', but the Golden Bears should be able to do enough to keep de Laura and the Wildcats from exploding in this one.

Arizona vs. California Prop Pick

Either team to win by 7 or less (+135) ★★★★

With so much unknown about these two teams, this one feels like a toss-up. But the one guarantee when these two play is that the games are close. You have to go back to 2009 to find a game that was decided by more than seven points, and you have to go all the way to 2008 to find a game decided by more than one score.

In six straight meetings, the winner of this game has won by seven or fewer. With the two teams evenly matched again this season, it’s hard to imagine that trend changing.
