California is a three-score underdog against the Washington Huskies
Go Bears! I'll be there shoutin' !!!!
I think I like Cal to cover the spread, BTW.....
My gut says 21 seems way too high. So I did a bit of looking around, trying to find actual data to justify what my gut says.
I couldn't find any.
Nevertheless, 21 is way too high. Take all your cash, get a second mortgage, borrow against your 401k and 529's, and bet on Cal.
I'll take the Bears to cover if not win outright. But there's that factoid that CALIFORNIA has not beaten a Top 10 ranked team on the road since 19- -?
If Wilcox starts the game with the bend but don't break defensive strategy it came out with against Idaho, it could be a three touchdown deficit before anyone blinks. Michael Penix sees everyone on the field, which might explain why one of his tight ends had two touchdown catches in the first half against Michigan State. Jack Endries has three catches in three games. No other tight end for Cal has caught a pass so far this year.
Sports betting and gambling in general, including lotteries, are a form of cancer on our society; best to avoid and advise our youth to do so, also. That said, it is interesting how often the oddsmakers are correct. What is it, something like 90 percent over time?
Is it true that if 98% of the bets are on UW, does it follow that the spread may increase to try to even out the betting distribution? Is there any relationship between betting distribution and the spread (or odds)? I’m thinking of betting on a game for the first time EVER!!!
Take the points, take a gamble on the moneyline (just for fun, not for your mortgage) and take the under.
SO, OK.... THE HANDWRITING IS ON THE WALL, IF YOU'D READ MY PREVIOUS TAKE ON THIS GAME YOU'D UNDERSTOOD THERE WERE SEVERAL CHANGES IN COACH CALLS NECESSARY TO TRY TO JJUST STAY ALIVE. WHAT..YOU DIDN;T READ AND HEED ? OH WELL. SO BEIT... CAL IS GOING TO GET HURT. THE BEST WE CAN HOPE OR IS A LOUSY MORAL VICTORY! GERBEAR
