The California Golden Bears will be decided underdogs for the second straight week against a very talented Washington Huskies team. Cal opens as 17 point underdogs to Washington.

Washington has rolled through their schedule so far this season. They demolished Rutgers, Idaho and Portland State pretty easily. After opening Pac-12 play with a very close win over Arizona in overtime, Washington rolled through former Pac-12 champions Stanford 44-6 and destroyed Oregon in Autzen 70-21. Oregon State was a quick and decisive affair last week, and then the Huskies exchanged haymakers in Salt Lake City to get a crucial win to stay unbeaten.

The Cal Vegas line has been eerily close to the money the last two weeks. Cal was favored to win by around three points against Oregon, and the Bears ended up with the three point win. Cal settled at around a 20 point underdog against USC, and lost by 21.

Cal and Washington will kickoff just after 7:30 PM Pacific from Berkeley on ESPN2.

Cal fans, your thoughts on the line?
