Bet on WASHINGTON STATE +3.5 Because…
This whole College Football wagering choice needs to be based on the HUGE passing game that the Cougars throw up against the alleged decent passing defense that Colorado seems to be putting up. Washington State is averaging almost 400.0 yards passing per game, and that is not a typo! That is almost unimaginable, even against a pass defense ranked No. 10 only allowing 176.9 yards in the air a game.
The 8 game winning streak the Cougars are on is no mistake after a couple hiccups to start the College Football wagering season. This is a team with nothing but upside, and in Colorado it will be very HIGH!
Bet on COLORADO -3.5 Because…
The defense of Colorado is more solid than anybody realizes unless you’re reading this, and the pass defense is probably talked about more. They are top 10 in FBS rankings in pass defense and the rush defense is underrated only allowing 132.0 yards a game on the ground. That puts them at No. 12 overall in total defense which the Cougars have NOT been up against yet in 2016.
Since the Buffaloes defense is so tight you don’t hear much about the balanced offense with both passing and rushing in the top 40 ranked in the NCAA. When you put a No. 33 ranked overall offense with a No. 12 overall defense that spells double digit wins against the pass defense of the Cougars which is almost non-existent.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
The Colorado Buffaloes just got done with a 4 game winning streak against REAL opponents including Arizona State, Stanford, UCLA and Arizona. This trend will keep on rolling right through the Washington State Cougars, whose passing offense if overly bloated due to inferior opponents.
This contest will not be as high scoring as the college football wagering spread says or as close as they think. This score will have the Colorado Buffaloes winning by 10-14 points by my expert college football predictions.
