OUR PREDICTION: The Golden Bears are winless at 0-4 against the spread in their last four road games dating back to last season and have failed to cover the spread in four of their last five games overall. On the other side, the Tar Heels are a perfect 4-0 against the number in their last four non-conference games and have covered the spread in five of their last seven games overall. Cal will score, but stopping North Carolina will be another question.
