The UCLA Bruins travel to Seattle take on the Washington Huskies Sunday and Jeff Alexander suggests putting 1 unit on Washington to cover the spread. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the betting line at Washington +9.5.
Alexander writes: There's no question that the Huskies have been struggling and the Bruins have been rolling, but we'll make a small play on the Huskies here as they get up for this one with their backs against the wall. UCLA is in a letdown spot after a big win over Washington State and we'll catch them looking ahead to a date with USC. Washington has won 7 of the last 10 home meetings in this series and 2 in a row the past 3 seasons. The Huskies lost, but covered the spread against UCLA in the first meeting this season and that's the result we are predicting here in a close game. Take the points.
