The Golden Bears have been red hot of late, winning five of their last six games. They may not have it easy though in this NCAA football betting matchup against Jake Locker and the Huskies.
College football betting had California off last week while Washington routed rival Washington State. Two weeks ago the Bears beat their rival, Stanford 34-28 in NCAA football betting. "That's a big one right there," said head coach Jeff Tedford. "Stanford's got a great football team. I'm really proud of our kids, our staff, the preparation that we put in the week." California is headed to a bowl game and with a win against Washington could improve their chances of a New Year’s Day bowl.
Washington routed Washington State last week 30-0 in college football betting. "I'm really, really proud of our football team," said head coach Steve Sarkisian. "We made a huge emphasis on making this a physical game, playing for 60 minutes, relentlessly and not worrying about what the score is, but playing the fashion of football that I know we're capable of playing." The Huskies have been much better this college football betting season as they have four wins after getting none last year.
California has won six of the last seven meetings in this series including a big 48-7 win in college football betting last year. The Bears are relying upon Shane Vereen to run the ball with star tailback Jahvid Best injured. Vereen had 193 yards against Stanford.
California has struggled in college football betting in this type of situation. The Bears are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games as a road favorite. The one positive for California in college football betting is that they are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings at Washington.
Washington doesn’t have good college football betting numbers either but it should be noted that many of them came before Sarkisian arrived at Washington. The Huskies are 16-35-2 in NCAA football betting in their last 53 home games. The Huskies are 6-15 in college football betting in their last 21 games overall.
Seven of the last ten California road games have gone over in college football betting. 12 of the last 17 Washington home games have gone over the NCAA football betting total. In this series, the last six games have all gone over the college football betting lines.
