The Utah Utes and California Golden Bears face off on Saturday in a college basketball showdown at the Haas Pavillion. When these two teams faced off on December 5th it was Utah that won 66-58. 

Both Gach was the top player for Utah scoring 19 points and six rebounds. Jordan Shepherd was the top player for California scoring 14 points. 

Utah comes into this game with a 10-16 record overall and they have gone 12-13-1 against the spread. Even though Utah is having a down season, they were able to beat Stanford 60-56 in the last game. In this game they are going to need the offense to be good again. Utah is averaging 70.1 points while their defense is giving up 69.7 points per game. Branden Carlson has been the top player for Utah averaging 13.8 points while shooting 52.3 percent from the field and 32.5 percent from behind the three point line.

On the other side of this matchup is the California Golden Bears who sit with an 11-16 record and they have gone 17-10 against the spread. In the last game against Colorado, they were outscored 42-27 in the second half, and that led to the loss. California is averaging 64.6 points while their defense is giving up 66.3 points per game. Jordan Shepherd has been the top player for California averaging 14.3 points while shooting 38 percent from the field and 29.6 percent from behind the three point line. 

The Utes are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games following an against the spread win. The over is 4-0 in Cal’s last four home games. The over is 4-0 in the Utes last four Saturday games. The over is 4-1 in the Utes last five games overall. 

All the trends point towards the over, and this total is too low. Cal is going to struggle to slow down Utah, but I also believe Utah’s defense is going to have issues.The over is 4-1 in the Utes last five games overall. Cal's offense is also going to find success, and this game is going to go over the total.
