The Washington Huskies may be the team in better form, as Washington State has been falling apart recently. But this is a rivalry game, so you tend to throw numbers out the window. But if you like numbers, Washington is beyond terrible against the number, especially on the road, and Washington State has won the last two meetings against Washington and three of the last six. The Cougars have also covered nine of their last 10 home games. Give me my free bucket.
