California remains winless against top-tier Football Bowl Subdivision teams, but Las Vegas oddsmakers think that will change this Saturday, Oct. 23.
The California Golden Bears (1-5, 0-3 Pac-12) are two-score favorites against the Colorado Buffaloes (2-4, 1-2 Pac-12), even after the Buffaloes’ 34-0 shutout against the Arizona Wildcats Saturday.
The most recent Cal v. Colorado college football betting odds is California -9.5 and a 43 total, as of Oct. 17, according to VegasInsider.com, an aggregator of legal U.S. sportsbooks’ offered odds.
California is about a 10-point favorite, and the total for “over-or-under” total score bets is 43.
The Cal v. Colorado spread opened shortly after 11 a.m. Pacific on Sunday at the Circa Resort and Casino sportsbook in Las Vegas, according to VegasInsider.com. The Circa sportsbook began taking bets with an opening line of California -9.5 and a 42 and one-half point total.
As of Sunday afternoon, college football bet spreads are available for California v. Colorado as high as California -10.5 and a 42.5 total at the WynnBET sportsbook operated by the parent company of the Wynn Las Vegas & Encore Resort.
Last week, Colorado punished Arizona at home in Folsom Field in Boulder, Colo., with big plays on all sides of the football.
Colorado safety Trevor Woods blocked an Arizona punt in the third quarter and returned the ball for a 36-yard touchdown to give his team a 13-0 lead after the successful point-after kick.
Then, one minute and 14 seconds later, Colorado outside linebacker Carson Wells brought home a pick-six for 50 yards.
The Colorado defense kept the Arizona Wildcats to only 280 total yards of offense.
Golden Bears fans will want to look out for Colorado first-year quarterback Brendon Lewis next Saturday. Lewis threw for 248 yards and two touchdowns against the Wildcats, including a 62-yard pass in the third quarter to wide receiver Brenden Rice.

Go Bears! No matter the results, always faithful to the Blue and Gold!
2nd half thread is up and live. should be working for everyone!
Just think, in a few more years at Cal Garbers will break the NCAA record for QB rushing yards
Funny how we make field goals against bad teams when we don’t really need them
FIRST TO 21!
That’s not a catch, he regrips it on the way down.
My God the P12N camera/production work is still bush league
One of the fastest run starts I’ve seen from C. brooks
successful special teams play!
Then we should have just kicked FG last week too
shocked wilcox didnt run the clock when they got the ball. what is this going for blood business? what is happening today?
While they're dogschitt this season, the Buffs are getting invaluable experience for it's true FR QB....that'll pay dividends next season...but the Buffs are bad.
Best second quarter of the year so far
First to 21 wins, right?
Tevis could have pants him if he wanted to
Cameraman getting fooled a lot.
thats not a hold
Friendly reminder that Charlie Ragle still has a job.
Barely made it but the snap was good
Hunter is a baller
Dorrell is the only human on the planet with less energy than Lincoln kennedy
Give that ball to Brooks.
is this the Sonny ref?
Illinois wins in 9OT
Is this officiating crew watching the same game?
Why can’t we tackle
1st quarter Cal has been good all season. Let’s see what we do in the 2nd and 3rd quarters.
Illinois and Penn state in 5th OT
Bimage has the type of physical tools & talent that Texas gets every year and we usually don't...
Speaking of 9 conference games, who thinks we should one-up the SEC and go to only 7 conference games. Course, we might not play in LA on some years, but it might be worth it.
My goodness Lincoln Kennedy is brutal in his banality
So this week we are going to kick FG
Nice. Tho Craig got rolled like a bowling ball
Not sure Cal should be favored by 9 over any team!
Sirmon wearing a gold jacket today, not green!
I hope Musgrave has scripted more than just one good first drive.
Will we be allowed to post in the second half thread?
I don't know why I can still comment here
Colorado is awful
Roll on you Bearssss
That's your ballgame...
Are we allowed to be fans of an opposing team's offensive line?
shoulda just threw it away
