Oregon State vs. Washington — under 54.5
You may note a theme with our picks this week, as we are playing quite a few unders due to extreme weather conditions across the U.S. this weekend. We’ll start in Seattle. The forecast for Friday night is potentially heavy rain and windy conditions. This will certainly slow down a potent Washington Husky passing attack led by Indiana transfer Michael Pennix. Moreover, the strength of the Oregon State defense is it’s secondary, so air travel will not be as easy as usual for UDub. On the other side of the ball, Oregon State has no problem grinding it out and embracing the run game. They also run a play every 29 seconds, making them one of the slowest teams in the country in terms of pace. With the wind wreaking havoc on the passing and kicking games, we’ll play this one under 54.5 with our friends at Bovada.
