Betting on the Washington Huskies (4-0)
It comes to no one’s surprise that the Huskies are 4-0, as they are a pretty loaded group from top to bottom. This past weekend, they opened their PAC-12 play on a high, as they easily dusted off Colorado, 37-10.
At the forefront of all the wins, as you may know, is the team’s new quarterback-running back-wide receiver combo. The three are leading the scoring attack, with Jake Browning completing 69.7 percent of his passes and having a 9-2 touchdown-interception ratio, Myles Gaskin rushing for seven yards per carry and tallying seven total TDs, and Dante Pettis, who took over the spot from the now-pro John Ross, registering 265 yards and three TDs on 17.5 yards per catch. Through those productions, the team is pouring in 44.5 points per game, which currently ranks 11th overall.
The Huskies defense are not to be outdone. It’s competitive everywhere, as evidenced in only allowing 11.8 points and 272.8 total yards per game (3.9 yards per play). Linebackers Tevis Bartlett (3.5 tackles for loss) and freshman Ryan Bowman (two sacks and two TFLs), and defensive back Myles Bryant (one INT, three pass deflections, and two TFLs) will be three men to watch out for.
Washington has won 18 of its last 19 regular season games (11-8 ATS).
Betting on the Oregon State Beavers (1-3)
Welp, same old same old for the Beavers. They are still on a path to be at the bottom of the PAC-12 standings by season’s end. Over the weekend, they opened conference play with a familiar tone, as they got dominated by Washington State, 52-23.
With Jake Luton expected to miss the remainder of the season (spine), another change will be made in the QB spot. Darrell Garretson, who was the original starter in 2016 but missed most of the year due to an ankle injury and then was designated to a backup position this season, is projected to be the new man under center. In six games last year, he was 73-for-146 for 617 yards, and had a 3-4 TD-INT ratio.
The receiving corps is well-balanced. Wide receivers Jordan Miller and Isaiah Hodgins, and tight end Noah Togiai all have a TD grab, and each have 14 or more receptions and 156 or more yards.
Running back Ryan Nall will continue being the best and most reliable weapon of the team. The junior has punched in 323 yards and four rushing scores on 6.1 yards per carry on the year.
The Beavers defense is currently one of the worst in the nation, and it’s looking like it will get beat up by the talented Huskies offense. It allows 47.5 points and 485.5 total yards per game, both of which are ranked in the bottom 12 overall. Further, expect the inability of the pass rush (three sacks in four games) to be exposed by Jake Browning.
The Huskies (-26.5) will win this and cover the spread, 50-20.
