Cal is favored!

NCAA Football: Arizona at California Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

There’s one more home game for the California Golden Bears this season. Senior Day takes place against the Oregon State Beavers on Saturday.

Cal is finally a solid favorite against an FBS opponent. Cal is currently 8.5 to 9 point favorites against Oregon State, depending on which line you look at.

Cal was the underdog in all of its previous seven FBS games, but did manage to win three of those seven games against Washington State, North Carolina, and Ole Miss. Cal’s only game where they were favored this year was Weber State, but Cal did not cover the spread.

Can the Bears figure out how to get their fifth win of 2017? Cal needs two more wins to get to bowl eligibility, and with two tough games to finish the season against Stanford and UCLA ahead, this is by far the most winnable.

Cal fans, your thoughts on the line?
