Why Washington Huskies are a good bet -14 ½?

Save for a surprising loss to the California Golden Bears, the Washington Huskies have been perfect so far this season. Washington beat and covered against Eastern Washington, Hawaii, BYU, and USC.

The Huskies’ victory over USC was particularly impressive. Washington managed to hold USC’s offense to 14 points. They intercepted quarterback Matt Fink 3 times. Stanford, like USC, won’t play their starting quarterback on Saturday. That should help the Huskies big time. Washington can definitely cover the huge spread on Oct. 6th.

Why Stanford Cardinal are a good bet +14 ½?

Stanford has had an awful season since starting quarterback K.J. Costello went down with a hand injury. There’s good news on that front as Costello is listed as questionable for this matchup against Washington.

Even if Costello doesn’t play, Stanford is in good hands at the QB position. Facing Oregon State, starter Davis Mills threw for 245 yards and 3 touchdowns. It was a major improvement from the 34 yards performance against the UCF Golden Knights. Mills could improve again versus the Huskies. If he does, or if Costello gets the start, the Cardinal have a shot to score just enough to cover on Saturday.

  • Total Yards: 327.2

Washington vs Stanford College Football Betting Analysis

Washington is one of the best teams in the Pac 12. Before jumping on the bandwagon, though, we can’t forget that luck has been kind to the Huskies. They faced a USC Trojan team down to their third string quarterback.

The 3 interceptions Matt Fink threw, no doubt, is why Washington won the game 28-14. The Huskies allowed USC to rush for 212 yards, a 6.4 per carry average. Stanford only rushes for 112 yards per. David Shaw should get more out of the running game after studying how USC thrashed the Huskies.

If the Cardinal can rush effectively, that will open up the passing attack. Stanford isn’t on the same level as Washington, but this is a rivalry game and the Huskies are 1-4 ATS versus a team with a losing record. Back Stanford against the spread.
