Why Bet On Washington?

The best reasons to back Washington in this matchup are because the Huskies have the far better defense in this matchup and they will have a healthy sense of desperation after losing for the second time this season last weekend. Washington was on the wrong end of a surprising 23-13 road loss against Stanford while never coming close to covering the chalk as a 13.5-point road favorite. Still, Washington gives up 11.1 fewer points per game than Arizona and come into this matchup riding the wave of an impressive 5-2 ATS mark in their last seven games against a team with a winning record.

Why Bet On Arizona?

There are a few great reasons to back Arizona in this contest starting with the fact that the Wildcats have an explosive offense that averages 37.2 points per contest while Washington puts up 34.0 points per game. Then, there’s the fact that Arizona hasn’t lost since dropping their regular season opener against Hawaii in a high-scoring shootout. The Wildcats come into this matchup off a hard-fought 35-30 win over Colorado and they have an elite, dual-threat quarterback in the fleet-footed Khalil Tate. Last but not least, Arizona is playing at home where they’ve gone 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven games.

Washington vs Arizona Expert Analysis and Prediction

While Washington has won two straight and three of the last four meetings in this Pac-12 rivalry, the Huskies narrowly escaped with a 35-28 road overtime win a year ago and now, they definitely aren’t as good as they were last season while Arizona has clearly improved from a year ago.

The home team in this series has gone a near-perfect 8-1 ATS in their last 9 meetings while Washington has gone an uninspiring 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road dates against Arizona. While a whopping 69 percent of public bettors are currently riding Washington for the win and ATS cover as a 6-point road fave, I’m going with Khalil tate and the Arizona Wildcats to take care of business in this matchup to give their conference championship hopes a huge boost!

Pick: Arizona 28 Washington 27
