In an article on the Vegas Experts website entitled, "Wrong Team Favored on Saturday Afternoon?,"
Burns compares the teams from both a scheduling perspective and the type of offensive system run. He also notes that the Golden Bears may have an edge when it comes to motivation.
That opinion stems from the fact that California's remaining schedule is imposing enough to make this game one of its few winnable contests.
In looking at another aspect of the scheduling, Burns noted the trend so far this season that shows how a team is able to cover the Las Vegas betting line the game after it plays the Oregon Ducks. Last week, California lost 55-16 to Oregon.
Burns also notes the fact that in the last eight meetings between the the two schools, the Golden Bears have won each time, beating the Las Vegas betting line in each of the past two seasons.
