Point Spread Favors the Golden Bears in NCAA College Football Battle with the Texas Longhorns

The Texas Longhorns will do battle with the visiting California Golden Bears on Saturday, looking to bolster their record and fatten the pocketbooks of betting fans who back them.

It's a rare case where Texas is a home dog, having been in this role just eight times since 2003. But they have failed repeatedly in this role, as their 1-7 ATS mark proves.

The visiting California Golden Bears opened as 2.5-point favorites in this one, but was bet all the way to -7 by Friday at BetOnline and most sportsbooks tracked here at Odds Shark. The over-under was 58 over at MyBookie earlier this week.
