Bet on Washington (-10) Because…
The Huskies defense is one of the best in the nation. Washington’s D allows 318.6 total yards per game. The defense gives up only 173 passing yards and 145.4 rushing yards per. Opponents average 14.6 points per game against Washington. This season, Washington’s D has held Stanford to 6 points, Oregon to 21 and Oregon State to 17.
Bet on Utah (+10) Because…
Utah can play any style of game required to win. The Utes beat Oregon State 19 to 14 on Oct. 15. The very next week, they thumped UCLA 52 to 45. Utah’s ability to score with opponents if need be or to play a slowdown, possession game, could do wonders for them in their Saturday matchup with Washington.
Washington Vs Utah Free Pick & Final Score Prediction
It’s hard to look past Utah in this game. It has nothing to do with Washington not being one of the Top 4 teams in the nation. The Huskies are likely to go undefeated this season. That includes beating Utah on Oct. 29.
But, Utah’s ability to play any style required to win gives them a huge advantage in this. The one number that I keep going back to is 52 points. That’s what Utah scored against UCLA’s tough defense. I doubt Utah can score that many points against Washington. But they could slow things down enough where 10 points means a lot in this game.
This should be Washington’s toughest test to date. I think the Huskies come out on top. But it won’t be easy. I see Washington winning by 4 points.
