Colorado Buffaloes vs Washington Huskies Predictions, Picks, Odds and NCAA Football Betting Preview – October 20 2018

The Colorado Buffaloes failed to get their first 6-0 start to a season since 1994, thanks to a loss to the USC Trojans last week. They are likely going to get removed from the upcoming update of the Top 25 AP Poll, but a huge win against the Washington Huskies this weekend can put them back. The Huskies, however, are surely going to make it hard for Colorado, as Washington is a 16.5-point home favorite. The Huskies are also listed at +20,000 to win the 2019 College Football Championship.

Betting on the Colorado Buffaloes (5-1 Overall / 2-1 Conference)

The Buffaloes’ win streak hit a brick wall over the weekend, as they lost to the USC Trojans on the road, 31-20. There were barely anything to like about Colorado in that game. Buffaloes quarterback Steven Montez passed for only 170 yards and had zero touchdowns against an interception. Colorado’s run game scored all of the team’s three touchdowns, with Laviska Shenault Jr. leading the team with 46 rushing yards on two carries. Despite the production of Colorado’ backfield, it was not an entirely convincing performance, as it averaged just 2.6 rushing yards per carry. If it weren’t for the pair of big gains by Shenault, that number could’ve gotten worse for Colorado, which ranks 33rd in the nation with 32.8 points per game and 30th in total offense with 445.4 total yards per contest.

The under is 3-0 in Colorado’s last three road games.

Betting on the Washington Huskies (5-2 Overall / 3-1 Conference)

The Huskies picked up a big win last Saturday, getting the best of the No. 17 Oregon Ducks in a 30-27 overtime victory. Quarterback Jake Browning didn’t particularly shine for Washington, but he drove the offense for 243 passing yards and a touchdown on 15-of-25 completions with an interception. The running back duo of Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed combined for 128 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Colorado’s run defense can be stingy, so the Huskies will have to diversify their attack this time around. That means more attempts from Browning, whose been shaky this season with 1,751 passing yards, 10 touchdowns, and six interceptions. On defense, the Huskies’ pass rush could take advantage of Colorado’s seemingly leaky offensive line. Colorado has allowed the fourth most sacks in the Pac-12 this season with 15.0.

The Huskies are 10-0 SU and 6-4 ATS in their last 10 home games.

Writer’s Prediction

Washington wins, 35-20.
