Cal v. Oregon College Football Betting Odds and Lines: Can the Bears Keep it Close?

California is a two-score underdog at Oregon

Las Vegas oddsmakers do not expect the California Golden Bears (1-4, 0-2 Pac-12) to secure an upset against a top-10 team this week.

The Golden Bears travel to Eugene, Ore., to face the No. 9 Oregon Ducks (4-1, 1-1 Pac-12) in Autzen Stadium on Friday, Oct. 15, 2021, as two-score underdogs.

The most recent Cal v. Oregon college football betting odds is California +14 and a 55 and one-half total, as of Oct. 10, according to VegasInsider.com, an aggregator of legal U.S. sportsbook operators’ publicly available odds.

California is a 14-point underdog, and the total for “over-or-under” total score bets is 55 and one-half.

According to VegasInsider.com, the Cal v. Oregon betting spread opened shortly after 11 a.m. Pacific on Sunday at the Circa Resort and Casino sportsbook in Las Vegas.

Later Sunday afternoon, other sportsbooks began publishing their offered odds, largely the same as Circa’s. However, DraftKings and the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino opened their betting lines at California +14.5. After early bets, DraftKings has since updated its line to California +14 shortly after 2 p.m. Pacific.

California has lost the last six games at Oregon, but the Golden Bears secured a 21-17 upset at home last season on Dec. 5, 2020.

Both teams sat idle with a bye this weekend.
