Las Vegas college football oddsmakers remain bullish on the California Golden Bears (0-1), who are due to play against the Oregon State Beavers (0-2) in Corvallis, Ore., on Saturday, Nov. 21.
The Las Vegas sportsbook consensus as of Sunday, Nov. 15, at 9 p.m. PT appears to be California -6 and an over or under at 52.5, suggesting the Golden Bears are six-point favorites over the Beavers.
The California-Oregon State betting line at Circa Sports, the downtown Las Vegas sportsbook, moved to California -6 and a total for over-or-under bets at 51 on Sunday, Nov. 15, at 2:40 p.m. PT after early betting.
Other sportsbooks opened California-Oregon State Sunday night with the following betting lines, seemingly all favoring the one-loss Golden Bears:

Las Vegas oddsmakers appear unfazed by California’s 10-34 loss against the UCLA Bruins (1-1) and a short week for practice and planning.
The first open for California-Oregon State action was at Circa Sports on Sunday, Nov. 15., at 11 a.m. PT: California -8 and an over or under at 52.5 .
Circa Sports posted the first betting line among Las Vegas and other legal sportsbooks while UCLA was beating California handily in the Golden Bears’ season opener.
Oregon State is tied with the Stanford Cardinal (0-2) for last-place in the Pac-12 North.
The Beavers come off a closely contested 21-27 loss against the Washington Huskies (1-0) in Seattle. Oregon State almost scored a go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter, but Pac-12 referees called the Beaver running back Jermar Jefferson short in a now-controversial call on a fourth-and-one run play near the Washington 5-yard marker.
