Bet on Stanford +3 Because…
Stanford has already beaten 3 decent teams this college football season. The Cardinal are battle tested. They took down a tough Kansas State squad 26 to 13. They rocked USC 27 to 10. They blitzed UCLA 22 to 13. Stanford is 3 and 0 both straight up and against the spread. If anything, the team looks improved from last season’s Rose Bowl Championship.
Bet on Washington -3 Because…
Washington’s offense has caught up to its defense. Ever since Chris Petersen came to Washington from Boise State, the Huskies have been known as a team with a great defense. Now, finally, in 2016 the offense has caught up with the defense. Washington’s offense averages 445.2 yards per game. The Huskies rush for close to 196 yards per game.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
This is a tough game to handicap only because it’s hard to tell exactly how talented this Washington Huskies’ team is. Washington has looked great against Rutgers, Idaho and Portland State. The win over Arizona was nice.
But the win over AZ wasn’t nearly as impressive as Stanford holding USC to 10 points and UCLA to 13 points. The problem that I have with backing Washington is that the Huskies are an unknown commodity.
I can’t do it. Even though the home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these 2 teams, I have to back Stanford. I think they beat Washington straight up.
