The Redhawks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Golden Bears are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Western Athletic.
Seattle has had some tough close losses this season, but none of those teams were as talented as Cal. The Golden Bears play very well on their home court and should be able to feast on a Redhawks club that turns the ball over and doesn't shoot well from anywhere on the court. This should be a blowout.
