Shane’s Free Pick
Arizona has a perfect 4-0 record but they really haven’t been tested so far this season in terms of the teams they have played. The Arizona defense looked good on paper, but this is the biggest test they have had so far, and it’s something they are going to fail. Penix Jr is a star and he’s going to have no issue in this game. Look for Penix Jr to lead Washington to at least 40 points and that is going to be the difference as Washington is going to get the job done. Back Washington against the spread.
