The Washington Huskies are the more talented team and should be favored. If you had any doubts about Washington this season, it quieted those doubts last week against Michigan State. With that said, Stanford is still a well coached team that’s had an extra week to prepare for this contest. Stanford has shown a balanced attack offensively, and the defense is likely going to get better as the season plays out. Washington should be favored and should win, but this is a lot of points to give a rested and prepared Stanford team. Give me the road dog.
