Washington Huskies vs. Stanford Cardinal Betting Pick

Betting Odds

Opening Line: Stanford -7 -120
Over/Under: OFF

Time: 10:30 PM EST Saturday October 5, 2013 on ESPN / WatchESPN

The Pac 12 match up between Washington and Stanford is only 1 of 2 games on the college docket this week between 2 teams ranked in the top 25. Both teams are off to 4-0 starts and each already has a win over a ranked team.

The Huskies have a solid offense, but they have been winning with their defense that ranks 4th in the nation only giving up an average of 10.8 ppg.

Last season Washington beat Stanford 17-13 in a defensive battle.

In their last games Stanford beat Washington State 55-17 and Washington beat Arizona 31-13.

Washington is 3-1 ATS with an Over/Under record of 1-3 and Stanford is 2-2 ATS with an Over/Under record of 3-1.

The Huskies have a solid passing offense led by Keith Price, but he did not have to pass much in the win over Arizona since they dominated the ground game. Still, he had 2 TD and 1 INT in the game and UW has a great WR duo in Kevin Smith (15 rec 269 yards 1 TD) and Kasen Williams (16 rec 255 yards 1 TD), who are each averaging over 15 yards per catch. The Cardinal only rank 77th in pass defense and their pass rush, which was dominant last season, has been decent with 9 sacks.

The reason Price did not have to air it out much in the Arizona win was because RB Bishop Sankey set a school record with 40 carries and had 161 yards with a TD. Stanford ranks 21st run defense and they stuffed the run last week holding Washington State to only 51 yards on the ground.

In terms of the rankings Stanford ranks 77th in passing yards per game and 33rd in rushing yards per game, but they have averaged 48.5 ppg in their last 2 games.

QB Kevin Hogan passed for 286 yards with 3 TD and 1 INT in the WSU game and he has a couple of big play targets in WRs Ty Montgomery (20 rec 327 yards 4 TD 16.4 yards per catch) and Devon Cajuste (10 rec 244 yards 3 TD 24.4 yards per catch). Washington has not only played great pass defense ranking 9th in the nation, but their pass rush ranks 10th with 13 sacks.

One main concern for the Huskies has to be the Stanford RB duo of Tyler Gaffney (377 yards 5 TD) and Anthony Wilkerson (191 yards 1 TD). Washington ranks a respectable 42nd in the nation in run defense, but they gave up 199 rushing yards in the win over Arizona.
