Blitzalytics Analysis


Line California (-6) Over/Under 43.5 Against the Spread - Illinois (8-4) California (6-6)


Two teams that had their share of ups and downs. Illinois lost to Eastern Michigan at home and finished the season losing to Iowa and Northwestern while beating Wisconsin and coming back from 20+ to upset Michigan State. California started out 4-0, promptly lost their next four, then finished the season winning three of their last four. A major issue in picking this game is the status of many major players for the Illini. Their injury report reads like a MASH unit.


The Degenerate Menace Says: Both teams have been an enigma all year. So this will be a tough pick. The computer also thinks that it is tough as the two sets of projections are split. I think I am going to side with the fact that this is a de-facto home game for Cal at Levi’s Stadium and that the Illini will have to travel a couple of time zones to play.


Prediction: California 27 - Illinois 20
