Why Bet The Colorado Buffaloes To Beat The Cougars
Colorado Senior RB Phillip Lindsay is the most productive tailback Washington will have faced this season. Lindsay is five yards short of 1,000 this season and is coming off fabulous performances in his last two games.
Lindsay put 281 rushing yards and three touchdowns vs. Arizona two weeks ago. He followed it with a 185-rushing yards and two touchdowns performance vs. Oregon State last week. He’s averaging 5.6 yards per carry this season and has scored ten touchdowns already.
If the Buffaloes’ run game gets going behind Lindsay, Colorado can do more than just cover the college football betting spread int his tilt.
Why Bet The Washington State Cougars To Beat The Buffaloes
Washington State defense is setting a new standard. They haven’t been great in the past, but this season the Cougars have allowed 288.3 yards per game — the 10th best mark in the nation. The Cougars are putting unprecedented pressure on opposing QBs with 23 sacks and eight picks this season.
If the offense matchups the defensive effort Washington State will notch another win. QB Luke Falk had his worst game of the season last week. Throwing five interceptions against Cal is out of character for Falk. He had thrown 19 touchdowns and just two interceptions before last weekend. If he is back in form, there is no stopping the Cougars this weekend.
If You Still Can’t Decide Who To Bet On
- Buffaloes are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games as an underdog.
- Cougars are 15-7 ATS in their last 22 conference games.
- Cougars are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
Colorado Vs. Washington State Week 8 ATS Pick
Colorado can’t be taken lightly. Last week’s loss to Cal has put Washington State on red-alert. I don’t expect them to fall down two games in a row.
Bet the Cougars to win and cover.
