California Season Odds

After showing flashes of overall potential last season, the California Golden Bears will look to be one of the sleepers in the PAC-10 Conference this season.

Jeff Tedford led Cal to a 9-4 overall record in 2008 and a 6-3 mark in the Pac-10. The Bears wrapped up their season with an impressive win over Miami in the Emerald Bowl – a victory this team a lot of confidence for ’09.

Cal returns a couple key players on the offensive side of the ball, but none bigger than potential Heisman candidate Jahvid Best at running back. He compiled 1,580 yards on the ground last year and as long as the offensive line can hold up, he should have an equally impressive ’09.

The Bears will also get quarterback Kevin Riley (1,360 yards) back, as well as wide receiver Nyan Boateng (439 receiving yards). Defensively, Cal will welcome back linebacker Mike Mohamed, defensive end Tyson Alualu and cornerback Syd’Quan Thompson.

Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have established California as a 45/1 long shot to win the 2010 BCS National Championship. But with a player like Best in their backfield, the Bears could do some damage in the Pac-10 and surprise some people this season.

Of course, the key will be the offensive line. Best is outstanding, but he can’t create holes on his own. The Bears lost Alex Mack and Noris Malele off their line and they’ll be hard to replace, especially Mack, who was easily one of the best centers in the game last year. If Cal’s offensive line can step up and give Best time to work his magic, and the defense is one of the more underrated units in college football.
