Oregon State is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS loss. The over is 11-3 in Oregon State’s last 14 Sunday games. Cal is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 Sunday games and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 home games. The over is 5-1 in Cal’s last 6 home games. The home team is 11-4-1 ATS in these two teams last 16 head to head meetings.
Neither one of these teams has had much success this season, but California will be at home for this matchup. Cal has lost three games in a row, while Oregon State has lost six games in a row. These two teams have very similar metrics and I think either team could win this game. I see some value on the total and I am taking the over in this matchup.
