Stanford vs California Betting Prediction

California comes into this matchup on a three game losing streak and they have allowed 80, 88, and 88 points in those three games. The Golden Bears are allowing over 76 points against per game on defense this season, while only shooting 42.2% from the field. Stanford was able to snap their losing streak in their last game against Cal, but they have been just as bad on defense. Cal won the first meeting between these teams by a score of 73-71, while Stanford won the second by a score of 80-58. I really don’t care for either of these teams, but I am going to take Stanford here, especially after just winning by 20+ points.
