Washington vs. Stanford Spread Pick

Washington Huskies vs. Stanford Cardinal, 11/3/18 Week 10 Predictions

The Stanford Cardinal is in danger of falling to 5-4 on the season with a loss tonight against the Washington Huskies at 9:00 p.m. ET. That said, are the Cardinal a solid play as a 10-point road dog in this matchup?

Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Huskies are 10-point favorites to beat the Cardinal. The total, meanwhile, sits at 45.5 points. As of this writing, 61% of the public betting tickets wagered on this matchup are on the Cardinal.

Washington Huskies

Washington HC Chris Petersen told reporters at his press conference that senior QB Jake Browning is "absolutely" his starting quarterback for Saturday. This should be an obvious point, but it was a worthwhile question to ask after Browning was bench for two series in the 12-10 loss to the Golden Bears on Saturday. Petersen said the benching was more about the offense than Browning, which is a weird thing to say. His replacement, redshirt freshman Jake Haener, threw a costly interception that was returned for a touchdown. The Huskies can still win the Pac-12 North if they win out, but they need Browning -- and the rest of the offense -- to play much better.

Stanford Cardinal

Stanford redshirt sophomore QB K.J. Costello completed 34-of-43 passes for 323 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 41-38 loss to Washington State. Strong, strong effort by Costello and the rest of the Cardinal in this one. They just so happened to end up with the hot potato at the end of the fourth quarter. The redshirt sophomore threw three of his four touchdown passes in the first half, quieted in the third quarter and then came on for a huge game-tying touchdown toss to J.J. Arcega-Whiteside from 25 yards out with under two minutes remaining in the game. Alas for the home faithful, Wazzu would proceed to go ahead on a field goal, one which Stanford was unable to answer. This was Costello's first game with multiple touchdown passes since the first game of the campaign. He'll have to fight it through against UW's tough secondary next weekend.

Betting Trends

Stanford

The Cardinal is 4-1 against the spread in its last five road games and 4-1 ATS in its last five games coming off a loss.

Washington

The Huskies are 0-5 against the spread in their last five conference games and 1-4 ATS in their last five games coming off a loss.

Prediction

Stanford has no running game, which is amazing considering Bryce Love is the team’s running back, but it’s not as if Washington is lighting up the scoreboard either. The Huskies are 4-10 straight up and 5-9 against the spread in this series, which includes a 1-5 record both straight up and against the spread when coming off a loss. Quarterback Jake Browning has been a huge disappointment in his fourth and final season in Seattle and I don’t think the Huskies should be laying double digits to any conference foe right now.
