Stanford vs. Washington Pick
College football bettors should be able to cash in on the under when Stanford visits Washington at 9:00PM ET on Friday.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Huskies are 2.5-point home favorites versus the Cardinal, while the over/under currently sits at 44 points. While the total hasn't moved off the original number, Washington has gone from -3 down to -2.5 as early action has been all over Stanford.
STANFORD: The Cardinal is off to a perfect 3-0 start both against the spread and straight up. The team covered as a favorite in all three games, with its most recent victory coming in comeback fashion versus UCLA last Saturday night. JJ Arcega-Whiteside caught an 8-yard touchdown pass in the end zone from Ryan Burns to give Stanford a 16-13 lead in the final minute of the game, then Solomon Thomas scooped up a fumble in the closing seconds and returned in 42 yards for the final nail in the coffin.
WASHINGTON: The Huskies received a scare last week at Arizona, but managed a 35-28 victory on the road to stay unbeaten on the year. Washington is now 4-0, with wins over Rutgers, Idaho, Portland State and Arizona, although the Huskies have now failed to cover in back-to-back games as sizable favorites (-42.5 versus Portland State and -16 against the Wildcats last weekend).
OUR PICK: This is going to be a defensive struggle throughout. The under is 5-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams in Washington and 9-3 in the lat 12 meetings overall. The under is also 13-6 in the Huskies' last 19 games in September and 11-3 in their last 14 games when they host a team with a winning road record. On the other side, the under is 8-2 in the Cardinal's last 10 games in September and 6-2 in their last eight conference games. The under is 13-6 in Stanford' last 19 road games as well.
