The Washington State Cougars and Stanford Cardinal face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Stanford Stadium. Washington State has won the last five games over Stanford. 

Washington State comes into this game with a 4-4 record overall and they have gone 5-3 against the spread. In the last game against Utah, Washington State was competitive but they ended up losing 21-17. Under center for the Cougars was Cameron Ward and he had a big game completing 27 of his 31 passes for 222 yards and a touchdown. Washington State is averaging 23.6 points while their defense is giving up 20.8 points per game. In this game, if Ward has a big game, Washington State should be in good shape to secure a victory here. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Stanford Cardinal who sit with a 3-5 record overall and they have gone 2-6 against the spread. Stanford have won two of their last three games but the only loss came in the last game. Stanford’s defense gave up 38 points to UCLA in the last game and that led to the blowout defeat. Tanner McKee was under center for Stanford in the last game, and he completed 13 of his 29 passes for 115 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Stanford is averaging 23.6 points while their defense is giving up 28.8 points per game. 

Washington State is 10-3 against the spread in their last 13 games. Stanford is 8-21-1 against the spread in their last 30 games overall. The home team is 5-2 against the spread in the last seven meetings played between the two teams. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings played between the two teams. 

Trends might point towards the over, but I expect this game is going to be lower scoring. Washington State’s defense looked really impressive in the last game and they will lockdown the offense of Stanford here. I also don’t expect Washington State to really be airing it out and their lack of scoring is going to keep this game lower scoring. Back the under to cash here with ease.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
