California -1 Point Spread

Over 128.5 Game Totals

Against The Spread Pick

A rather boring PAC-12 game on Saturday will see the Utah Utes take on the California Bears. It is not like this game holds much weight as both sides have poor records and both have losing records in the conference. Maybe some late wins can provide some momentum down the stretch, but to make the tournament, we will need to see a lot more. These teams are also all about where they play. Cal is 11-5 at home, while Utah is 1-9 on the road. The Bears are 11-5 ATS in home games and the Utes are 5-10 ATS on the road. Utah did beat Cal 60-45 in the first meeting, but now that they changed venues, I look for the Bears to edge out the Utes. This is not a game I want to bet, so take the Bears as a very small lean if at all.

Over Under Pick

I do not have much interest in the total as well, as these teams are wildly inconsistent. Going back to the home/road splits, Cal scores less than 70 points per game at home, while Utah scores just 61.3 on the road. The over is 3-1 in each of these teams last four games and 11-4 in Cal home games this season. I cannot trust the defenses here to play a complete game, so I will take the over as a very small lean.
