So, about the Arizona Wildcats being a small favorite this Saturday at the Rose Bowl ...

Oddsmakers have made a significant change to the line for Arizona’s game at the UCLA Bruins, now listing the Wildcats as 7-point underdogs after posting an initial line of Arizona minus-1 on Sunday afternoon.

Had the original line remained intact it would have been the first time Arizona (3-4, 2-2 Pac-12) had been favored in Pasadena since 2010, which was also the last time the Wildcats won at UCLA. They have lost three straight at the Rose Bowl by a combined score of 128-41, most recently losing 45-24 in October 2016.

UCLA (1-5, 1-2) is coming off its first win under coach Chip Kelly, beating California 37-7 on the road on Saturday. Arizona beat Cal 24-17 at home the week prior before getting whomped 2-10 at Utah last Friday.
