Who is the Public Backing?

As of Wednesday morning, 56% of betting tickets are on the Golden Bears to cover as a touchdown-sized underdog.

Key Betting Trends

The home team is 13-3-1 against the spread in the last 17 games between the these two teams while the Golden Bears are just 1-6-1 against the number in their last eight road games versus the Bruins. That said, the underdog is 14-6-1 in the last 21 meetings between these two teams.

OUR PREDICTION: The under is a perfect 4-0 in the last four meetings between these two teams and has cashed in four of the last five meetings when the Bruins are the host. The under is also 6-1-1 in the Golden Bears' last eight games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game and despite the Bruins' defensive issues, I don't know if Cal will contribute enough to push the score over the total.

On the other side, the under is 9-3-1 in the Bruins' last 13 games in November, is 29-9 in their last 38 home games versus an opponent with a losing road record, and is 18-7-1 in their last 26 games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous game.
