Oregon is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 conference games and 0-7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The over is 6-0 in Oregon’s last 6 conference games. Cal is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Friday games. The over is 7-1 in Cal’s last 8 games. Oregon is 5-0 ATS in these two teams last 5 meetings.
Oregon has struggled in their last 4 games and has shown no signs of turning it around. Meanwhile, Cal has played better than most people thought they would has an explosive passing attack. The Oregon defense is one of the worst in the country and I don’t expect them to stop the Cal offense. I like Davis Webb to have a big day and get the win for Cal.
