Two teams from the Pac 12 will be facing off when the Oregon State Beavers visit the Cal Golden Bears.
The tip-off is set for 10:30 ET from the Haas Pavilion.
Cal opened up as a 2 point favorite and that number is now up to 2.5. I have seen the total go from 127 to 126.
Oregon State Beavers
Oregon State has not enjoyed a great start to their season at all. Quite frankly, they have really struggled.
The Beavers last played on November 27th, where they lost to the Penn State Nittany Lions by a score of 60-45. They will look to get back on track when they face this Cal squad.
I am not saying that I thought this team would be a title contender, but I did feel they would get off to a better start. What they have done so far is unacceptable.
In the loss to Penn State, I was not upset with the way that the defense played, as they only allowed 60 points. With that said, it is hard to win ball games when you only score 45 points. That has to be much better.
Cal Golden Bears
Cal has certainly not gotten off to the start they hoped for. I do feel they can get better as the year goes on, but I have not been impressed with what I have seen so far.
The Golden Bears come into this game with a record of 3-4. They just have to figure out a way to play more consistent basketball if they wish to make it to March Madness.
They played last on November 28th, where they beat the Fresno State Bulldogs by a score of 65-57. To me, that was a good win for them. Now let us see if they can build off of that.
A lot of different guys contributed to the win on Sunday. Jordan Shepherd had 17 points and 7 rebounds and Andre Kelly had 14 points and 5 rebounds. Also, Grant Anticevich chipped in 13 points in the win.

Free Oregon State Beavers vs. Cal Golden Bears NCAAB Prediction:
In this game, it is hard to feel confident with either of these squads. It could make for an ugly game.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Cal ATS
Cal has certainly not been impressive this year, but they have been better than Oregon State. I feel like the Golden Bears can take care of business in this one.
I can see this being a pretty close game, but I like Cal to cover. I just have very little confidence that the Beavers can go on the road and cover here. Not to mention, they have proven to be a bad team ATS as of late.
I would have preferred to have gotten this number at the opener of 2, but I still like it at 2.5. I feel that that the Golden Bears will do just enough to cover this game.
I am going with the Golden Bears laying points at home here.
