Washington State is 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 home games, 1-4 against the spread against a team with a winning record, and 9-4 in their last 13 home games against a team with a winning road record. Colorado is 7-1 against the spread following a win, 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games, and 1-3-1 against the spread against the Pac-12 games.
This game looks like it is going to be one sided and I look for Colorado to win by a blowout.
