Why #18 Washington is a good bet at +3?

Washington almost never covers spreads, but this is the first time since Week 1 that the Huskies enter a game the underdog. The Huskies are an awful 2-9 ATS because they’ve offered opponents a ton of points, like battling Oregon State as a -32.5 favorite in their last.

Coach Chris Petersen doesn’t like to run up the score on bad teams. Washington must play as hard as possible to beat the Cougars on Friday, though. Petersen will have his team ready to win straight up, which means taking the points makes sense.

Washington vs Washington State Final Betting Analysis:

Although Washington State has looked unreal this season, and they’ve covered against the spread, they face a group almost as talented as they are in Washington. The Huskies started the season ranked in the Top 10.

Losses to Auburn, Oregon, and Cal ended Washington’s chances at a CFP berth. But, the Huskies can still win the Pac 12 and battle in a New Year’s Day Bowl. Petersen will have his team ready to take down Mike Leach’s overachieving squad.

Washington’s the play against the spread.
