Washington has an 8 and 1 straight up record. The Huskies are 6 and 3 against the spread this season. Stanford is 3 and 5 against the spread this season. The Cardinal is 6 and 3 straight up.
Washington Huskies Vs Stanford Cardinal Line & Final Score Prediction
The college football betting line opened with Washington favored by 8-points over Stanford. Early bets on Stanford has swung the line across a TD down to 6-points. The over/under is at 50 points after a flurry of over bets. The total opened at 47-points.
Bet on #9 Washington -7 because…
Washington moved up to No. 9 in the College Football Playoff rankings, which keeps the Huskies within striking distance of the top-four. The 7 to 13 loss to ASU on Oct. 14 was devastating. It wasn’t so devastating that the Huskies don’t have an outside shot to get back into the CFP. To even get close, Washington must put a beating onto Stanford.
Bet on Stanford +7 because…
Stanford is 12-3 against the spread in their last 15 games following a straight up loss. The Stanford Cardinal always bounce back after a loss. Washington State beat the Cardinal 24 to 21 in College Football Week 9. That means Stanford bounces back with an ATS win, right?
Not so fast. Stanford will be starting redshirt freshman quarterback K.J. Costello for the second straight week. Costello struggled in snowy conditions against Washington State as he was 9-of-20 passing for 105 yards and one interception.
Washington Vs Stanford Final Score Prediction
It’s doubtful. Although Stanford being 12 and 3 after a straight up loss is a strong trend, it’s not strong enough to look past how well Washington has played since the loss to the Arizona State Sun Devils.
On Oct. 28, the Huskies obliterated UCLA 44 to 23 as a -18 favorite. In Week 10, the Huskies pummeled Oregon 38 to 3 as a -17.5 favorite. Whatever coach Chris Petersen told his players after the loss to ASU, it’s stuck.
Washington’s defense is ranked first in college football based on yards allowed per game. The Huskies’ D only allows 242.1 yards per game. Opponents average 11.1 points per versus Washington’s D.
I think the Huskies cover the spread on Friday night.
