Washington Can’t Slip Up

Washington knows all they need to do is win the next two games and they are in the college football play, but now the hardest task is actually winning it. This is a rivalry game and it’s not something that  the Huskies can overlook. In the last game in the pouring rain, Washington was able to knock off the Oregon State 22-20. MIchael Penix Jr had a strong game putting up 13 of his 28 passes for 162 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions. Washington is averaging 32.6 points while their defense is giving up 28.5 points per game. Washington can’t let Washington State stick around and let them gain confidence.

Washington State Needs Win to Make Bowl Game

For Washington State the task is pretty simple, they must win to make a bowl game. Washington does have five wins and they are coming off a dominant victory. Washington State scored 56 points against Colorado and that was enough for the blowout victory. Cam Ward did have a big game under center completing 18 of his 30 passes for 288 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions. As good as the offense was, it might be even more impressive what the defense was able to do. Washington State is  averaging 32.6 points while their defense is giving up 28.5 points per game. 

Washington State Betting Trends

  • Washington State has lost seven of its last eight road games against AP-ranked teams.
  • Washington State has failed to cover the spread in seven of its last eight November games against AP-ranked teams.
  • Washington State has lost the first half in three of its last four games against conference opponents at Husky Stadium.
  • Seven of Washington State's last eight November games as an underdog have gone OVER the total points line.

Shane’s Freee Pick

Washington State’s offense was good in the last game, but don’t let that fool you, this isn’t a very good team. The Washington State defense isn’t elite and now they have to face off against a Huskies offense that is averaging 39.3 points per game. Washington is going to get another big game from Penix Jr and it’s going to be an easy blowout victory by Washington. Back Washington against the spread here.
