The Washington State Cougars and Washington Huskies face off in the Apple Cup college football showdown at Husky Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2019, Washington came away with the 31-13.
Washington State comes into this game with a 6-5 record and they have gone 7-4 against the spread. Even though they have been inconsistent, they are coming off an impressive win. Washington State put up 44 points against Arizona and that led to the 44-18 point victory. Washington State is averaging 27.4 points while their defense is giving up 25.3 points per game. Under center for Washington State is Jayden de Laura who has thrown for 2,506 yards, 23 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. In this game if Washington State wants to win this game they need the offense to be good.
On the other side of this matchup is the Washington Huskies who sit with a 4-7 record overall and they have gone 3-8 against the spread. Washington has really struggled and in the last game against the Colorado Buffaloes they lost 20-17. Washington is averaging 22.7 points while their defense is giving up 21.1 points per game. Under center for Washington is Dylan Morris who has thrown for 2,458 yards 14 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions. In this game, Washington is going to need to run up the score, and they can’t continue to have the terrible turnovers that have hurt them.
Washington State is 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games overall. The under is 5-0 in Washington’s last five games played on Friday. The over is 4-0 in Washington State’s last four games in November.
Even at home, I don’t trust Washington because they have had so many issues scoring the ball. In this game, Washington State is going to get close to that 30 point mark and that will be enough for the Cougars to come away with a cover of the spread.
