The Cougars are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games in November and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Cardinal are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games, 0-5 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 6-2 in Cougars last 8 games overall. The over is 5-0 in Cardinal last 5 home games. The Cougars are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Stanford and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
The Washington State Cougars have shown they have the offensive firepower to hang around in a game like this, but their defense has gotten blasted through two games and they've shown zero ability to stop the pass. The Stanford Cardinal are 0-2 on the season, but some of that has to do with the schedule and starting with two tough teams. I still believe in coach David Shaw and Stanford is still a talented team that should be given the benefit of the doubt. Now, if Stanford can't move the football in this game and control the trenches, then it's time to hit the panic button.
I'll lay the field goal with Stanford.
