Against The Spread Pick
The Washington Huskies and the Washington State Cougars face off on Sunday and these are two teams who don’t really like eachother. Talent-wise the Huskies are probably the better team, but they have really struggled on the road. Coming into this game they only have one win in five attempts away from home. This is a team that lost to the California Golden Bears. Away from home the Huskies are averaging only 62.6 points per game and that won’t be enough to get the job done. The Huskies are 5-16 against the spread in their last 21 games away from home. Back the Cougars to get the job done.
Over Under Pick
These are two teams who haven’t been running up the score as of late, and even with the struggles of the defense, the offensive struggles are going to trump. Over the last five games the Huskies are averaging 68.8 points per game, while the Huskies are averaging 65 points. The under is 31-11 in the Huskies last 42 road games. I don’t love this total, but the under is the play.
