Washington Huskies (–2.5) vs. UCLA Bruins
For the first time in a long time, they are playing some offense in Seattle. QB Michael Penix, an Indiana transfer, leads an offense currently ranked number five in the country and a passing offense ranked first. UCLA for its part has scored exactly 45 points in three of its four games. On the other side of the ball, only one yard separates the two teams in terms of total defense with UCLA ceding 301 yards per game and UDub giving up 302. The difference between the teams to this point is the strength of schedule. The Bruins toughest game to date has been a home win over South Alabama 32-31, a game they frankly could and should have lost. The Huskies have dominating home wins over Michigan State and Stanford. Both teams come in at 4-0 but we prefer Washington’s resume, and we feel like they have an advantage on both sides of the ball. We have taken this at 2.5 as this number is likely to be 3 in most places by kickoff. You can play it at BetUS now.
