The Stanford Cardinal and California Golden Bears face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at California Memorial Stadium. The visiting team has won four games in a row between Stanford and California. 

Stanford comes into this game with a 3-7 record overall and they have gone 2-8 against the spread. Stanford has lost three games in a row and over those three games they have scored only 34 points total. In the last game against Utah, Stanford were defeated 42-7. Quarterback Tanner McKee completed 11 of his 23 passes for 155 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions. Stanford is averaging 21 points while their defense is giving up 32.4 points per game. 

On the other side of this matchup is California who sits with a 3-7 record and thye have gone 5-5 against the spread. In the last game against Oregon State, California only scored 10 points, and that led to the 28 point defeat. Two games ago against USC, California was defeated 41-35. Against Oregon State it was Jake Plummer that was under center and he completed 22 of his 34 passes for 147 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception. California is averaging 23.2 points while their defense is giving up 27.9 points per game. On the season, Plummer has thrown for 2,521 yards, 16 touchdowns, and seven interceptions. 

Stanford is 16-33-2 against the spread in their last 51 games overall. California is 6-2 against the spread in their last eight home games. The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings in California. The Cardinal are 5-0-1 against the spread in their last 6 meetings in California.

Stanford has found a ton of success when they have played at Cal, and that is going to continue here. I really don’t trust this California offense, and they are laying too many points here. Look for McKee to have a nice game from McKee and that will be enough for Stanford to cover the spread. Back Stanford against the spread. I also think it's smart to sprinkle a few dollars on Stanford winning this game on the money line.
