With Week 2 in the books, Vegas has started looking ahead to the match-up between the California Golden Bears and the North Texas Mean Green.

The Mean Green faced one of our old friends in Sonny Dykes’s SMU Mustangs, losing 49–27. You may have heard that the Bears upset the Washington Huskies with this year as the score, 20–19. Vegas called Cal 12-point underdogs, meaning we beat the spread, but came up short of the over/under of 44.

Vegas has spoken for next week and set the over/under at 57.5 points with Cal favored by 12. This basically shakes out to 35–23 in favor of Cal.
