Washington state picks and predictions

Prediction

Washington 38, Washington State 30

money line

While the Huskies aren’t competing to make the College Football Playoffs, I assume WASHINGTON (-125) as the program strives to secure the best bowl game possible. Washington has won 8 of its last 10 meetings with Washington State.

against the spread

WASHINGTON -2 (-110) is a tempting bet since we only need the Huskies to win by a field goal to cover the spread. I expect a strong performance from Washington QB Michael Penix Jr. to end the regular season on a positive note.

The Huskies are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 meetings against the Cougars and they are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 road meetings vs. the Cougars.

Over/under

It’s a Pac-12 showdown and these games often lead to a lot of points, so OVER 60.5 (-110) is where I lean. Both teams are capable of scoring points and it should be a competitive game until the 4th quarter.
