Cal struggles with UC-Davis

California opened the season at home last weekend, earning a 27-13 win over UC-Davis. The Golden Bears failed to cover as a 15.5-point favorite while going under the 48-point total.

The Bears outgained UC-Davis 471-264 in the victory, but Cal committed four turnovers to keep the Aggies in the contest. Christopher Brown Jr. led the offense with 197 rushing yards and a touchdown on 36 carries. Chase Garbers threw for 238 yards and two touchdowns while going 16 of 28 passing. Kekoa Crawford was the leading receiver with 84 yards and two touchdowns.

Washington runs over EWU

The Washington Huskies opened the season with a 47-14 win over Eastern Washington last week. Washington was able to easily cover a 24-point spread while going over the 56.5-point total.

Washington dominated on both sides of the ball, putting up 570 yards of offense while holding EWU to just 274 yards. In his first start with the team, Jacob Eason looked great for the Huskies. He threw for 349 yards and four touchdowns on 27 of 36 passing. He spread the ball out well, as three different receivers had over 70 yards. Richard Newton led the ground attack with 91 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries. Benning Potoa’e led the Washington defense with two sacks.

College Football Betting Trends


The Bears have hit the under in their last eight road games and in seven of their last eight conference games.


The Huskies have hit the under in 10 of their last 11 against winning teams and in seven straight games in September.


This total is being listed very low, but last year’s meeting was a 12-10 win for Cal at home. These two have hit the under in nine of their last 10 encounters. Washington’s defense is probably the best unit in this game and the Huskies can force turnovers on the Cal offense, which was sloppy with the ball. I don’t think Washington will show that offensive balance this weekend, as Cal has much better athletes than Eastern Washington. I will take my chances on the Huskies going under the low total.

College Football Week 2 Prediction: Cal/Washington Under 44.5
