Huskies upset again
Washington is coming off a 20-14 loss at Colorado. The Huskies have dropped three of their last four games coming into this week. They now sit at 6-5 on the season, 3-5 in the Pac-12, 6-5 against the spread and 6-5 with the over.
The Huskies are respectable on defense this year, allowing just 21.1 points and 360.1 yards per game. Offensively, Washington is putting up 31.5 points and 402.3 yards per game. Jacob Eason has thrown for 2,678 passing yards and 21 touchdowns to lead the offense. Salvon Ahmed is the leading rusher with 915 yards and nine touchdowns, while Hunter Bryant is the top receiver with 46 catches for 729 yards and three scores.
Cougars trying to finish strong
Washington State has won two straight games coming into this game after beating Stanford and Oregon State in recent weeks. The Cougars are now 6-5 on the season, 3-5 in the Pac-12, 4-7 against the spread and 7-4 with the over.
The Cougars have struggled defensively all season, giving up 31.5 points and 467.2 yards per game. Despite that, the offense is pretty strong. WSU is putting up 41.5 points and 533 yards per contest. Quarterback Anthony Gordon is having a huge year, as he has thrown for 4,920 yards and 45 touchdowns this season. Eason Winston Jr. is the leading receiver with 77 receptions for 914 yards and 11 touchdowns. Max Borghi is the leading rusher with 740 yards and 10 touchdowns.
College Football Betting Trends
The Huskies are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 Friday games, but just 5-12 ATS in their last 17 conference games.
The Cougars are 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Friday games.
Washington has won six straight in this series, covering the spread in the last five as well. The Washington defense has been able to dictate the style of this game, holding Washington to just 17 points or less in the last six meetings. I think that will continue today with Washington at home. The Huskies can’t get into a shootout with the Cougars and expect to win. Washington has the defensive ability to get the job done and I think the Huskies will see a boost in offense this week against a bad Washington State defense. The Cougars have given up at least 33 points in every road conference game.
