It’s not much of a surprise that the Arizona Wildcats opened as favorites over the UCLA Bruins for their Pac-12 opener on Saturday night at home. And after seeing what the Bruins did in their last game, it’s also not much of a shock that the line has already dropped.

The Wildcats (2-1) opened as 9-point favorites over the Bruins, according to VegasInsider.com, but within the first hour that line had dropped to 7.5.

UCLA (1-3, 1-0 Pac-12) pulled off a major shocker late Saturday night at Washington State, rallying from down 32 in the second half to beat the Cougars 67-63. It was the highest-scoring game in conference history.

Arizona will be looking to win its Pac-12 opener for the second straight season, which hasn’t happened since doing so three years in a row from 2008-10.

The spread is the largest for Arizona at home in Pac-12 play since it was a 21-point favorite against Oregon State in November 2017, a game the Wildcats pushed in a 49-28 victory.
