Washington State is 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games against a team with a losing record. Colorado is 3-9 against the spread in their last 12 road games, 3-8-1 against the spread against a team with a losing record, and 1-4 against the spread in their last five Saturday games.
This has the makings of a track meet as usually teams with poor records lack in defense so my free pick here is over the total of 142. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
