Washington State is 6-13 against the spread following a loss and 1-5 against the spread following a loss by 20 or more points. Washington is 1-5 against the spread following a loss, 1-6 against the spread against the Pac-12, and 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games. The underdog has covered the point spread in five of the last six meetings of these two.
The total is set at 149 but I see it staying under that number and that is my free pick. I have a strong play in this one on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
