On December 1, 2018 The Cal Golden Bears will play host to the Stanford Cardinal. This is a makeup game that was originally supposed to be played earlier in the month.

In this game the Cardinal are slightly favored by -3 points. The total is 48.5 points.

Both teams are very evenly matched. Both are 7-4 and play in the same conference. Stanford has a one game advantage as far as wins within the conference. They are 5-3 whereas the bears are 4-4.

Stanford scores 30 PPG and allows 24. Cal scores 24 PPG and allows 21. Cal is a rushing team. They run for 164 YPG and pass for only 186. Stanford passes for almost 300 YPG and still manages to run for 109 on the ground. Stanford has a better offense that Cal. Cal has a better defense than Stanford.

Stanford has owned Cal head to head. Stanford is 8-2 of their last ten played and 6-4 ATS. The rivalry is strong with these two schools. Everyone knows about the miracle TD when the Stanford band ran onto the field and Cal returned the kick to win.

Here are some trends:
Stanford is 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games when playing on the road against California.
Stanford is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games when playing on the road against California.
Stanford is 5-1-1 ATS in its last 7 games on the road.

As much promise as Cal has shown at times this year, they simply can't seem to stay consistent. Stanford has all the trends going their way and so I am taking a small play on Stanford moneyline (-145) to protect against the close game and/or backdoor cover.
