That's a huge jump within a matter of 40 minutes. The public money is pretty heavily on Washington. Some smart must have dumped a huge wad of cash on Cal to not only cover but to win straight up.
This is pretty similar to what happened against Tenn in 2006. Cal was ranked #9 in the country going into Neyland and the public was betting Cal, but the line stayed -3 pretty much the whole week. The line moved to a pickem by the end due to a lot of smart money being bet on Tenn. At least that is what I recall.
It's happening much earlier with Wash, but I'm starting to feel pretty good about the game.
It's Cal on the road. How can anyone feel good about this game!?
FWIW, Montana and Price were dead-locked in a qb battle all throughout the Spring and into Fall. If Price can't go, they apparently like Montana just as much.
