Vegas calls Cal to be touchdown-favorites over Oregon State

New, 18 comments

Possibly the last time Vegas will have Cal Football favored in 2018.

NCAA Football: Oregon State at Arizona State Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

It took awhile for Vegas to chime in with their take on the score when the California Golden Bears play the Oregon State Beavers. Honestly, I don’t understand the betting world enough to know if this was because they didn’t know what to set or because of apathy surrounding the game.

In any case, their judgment has been set.

The line opened with Cal favored by 7.5 points, but now has Cal favored by just 6.5. I believe the movement of the line reflects many people betting on either a smaller margin of victory or the Beavers winning outright?

Given Cal’s recent struggles and that Oregon State had an extra week of prep, I’m not sure what I’d expect from this game.
