California vs Oregon State Prediction & Pick
Cal QB Jack Plummber picked apart the USC secondary last week passing for 406 yards and 3 TDs in defeat. Now he'll face the Pac 12's No. 1 pass efficiency defense and the Beavers allow just 55% completions and 9 passing touchdowns. Cal runs the ball for just 107 yards per game, and with OSU's run defense top 3 in the conference allowing just 118 rushing yards per game this season, Plummer likely slings the ball often again.
Oregon State is very balanced on offense rushing for 192 yards per game and passing for 212 YPG. Slashing freshman RB Damien Martinez has rushed for at least 100 yards in three straight games, and backup QB Ben Gulbranson has been below average production except against the league's worst team, Colorado.
Oregon State is +20 yards per game in Pac 12 play and Cal is -79 YPG, but must factor in backup QB Gulbranson with starter Chance Nolan still out with a neck injury suffered Oct. 1 vs Utah.
Final Score Prediction: Oregon State: 27 | Cal: 17

California vs Oregon State Best Bet
Cal is now 25-10 ATS as an underdog since head coach Justin Wilcox arrived in 2017. The Bears defense is usually solid, but struggled against the league's top-2 offenses the last two games. The Beavers defense is even better, which makes them tough to beat again despite quarterback play holding them back from more efficiency and production on offense.
Oregon State is 4-0 ATS at home this season and the Beavers are on a 10-1 SU and 11-0 ATS run at home. Of course that's been factored into this line and lean the 'Dogs way with a lower total and scoring projected.
Bet: Cal +13.5 (-110)
