Bet on Fresno State vs. Washington

It’s a challenge for Washington to win by such a large margin this weekend. Fresno managed to lose by less than 33 points against Alabama. While the Tide aren’t a team that runs up the score often, they still are historically better than Washington. Fresno State has covered in six of its last seven after a loss and in seven of its last eight on fieldturf. I like what Washington can do, but giving up 33 points is a lot for any team against a respectable program like Fresno State.
