According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Golden Bears are 17.5-point home favorites versus the Cougars, while the over/under currently sits at 71 points.

Cal quarterback Jared Goff is off to an outstanding start, throwing for 898 passes and 11 touchdowns. One statistic that has stood out in the early going is his yards per attempt average, which has jumped from 7.8 in 2014 up to 9.3 in four games this year. Washington State, which ranks 62nd in the nation in total yards allowed defensively, could have an issue slowing down the Bears' explosive offense.

The Cougars are 2-8 against the spread in their last 10 games overall and 1-6 ATS in their last seven conference games. On the other side, the Golden Bears are 4-1 against the number in their last five games versus a team with a winning record.
