Huskies get past USC

Washington picked up a 28-14 win over USC last week to improve to 4-1 on the season. The Huskies are 1-1 in Pac-12 play, suffering a 20-19 loss to Cal earlier in the year. They are also 4-1 against the spread and 3-2 with the over.

The Huskies have been pretty balanced on offense and defense. They rank in the top third of the nation in both as they average 38.2 points and 444.2 yards per game on offense while giving up 17.4 points and 340.6 yards per game on defense. Quarterback Jacob Eason is leading the team this season with 1,243 passing yards and 10 touchdowns. Aaron Fuller is his top receiver with 27 catches for 327 yards and four touchdowns. On the ground, Salvon Ahmed is leading the way with 399 yards and three scores. Myles Bryant leads the Washington defense with 31 tackles, a sack and two interceptions.

Cardinal struggling

Stanford is coming off a 31-28 win at Oregon State, but the Cardinal have been struggling this year. They are just 2-3 on the season, 1-2 in the Pac-12, 1-4 against the spread and 3-2 with the over.

Normally known for defense, Stanford isn’t getting the job done on that side of the ball this year. The Cardinal are giving up 29.2 points and 413.6 yards per game. The offense isn’t doing any better, as they are putting up just 20.2 points and 327.2 yards per game. KJ Costello started the year at QB, but a hand injury has taken him out for weeks. He is questionable to return this weekend. Costello has thrown for 471 yards and two touchdowns. Davis Mills has started in his place and has thrown for 597 yards and four touchdowns. Cameron Scarlett is the team’s leading rusher with 413 yards and a score while Michael Wilson has 19 catches for 266 yards and three touchdowns.

College Football Betting Trends

Washington

The Huskies have hit the under in four straight conference games and in five of their last six following a win.

Stanford

The Cardinal have hit the over in six of their last eight conference games, but have hit the under in seven of their last 10 home games.

Prediction:

These two have hit the over in three straight meetings, but I am not sure that is in the cards this week. Stanford could improve offensively with Costello, but he is more on the unlikely to play side of things. The Cardinal just can’t move the ball and doing so against Washington isn’t likely to happen either. Washington isn’t an overwhelming offense either, so I think the Huskies will struggle to consistently put together scoring drives on the road against a desperate Stanford team.
