The Huskies are 12-3 ATS in their last 15 vs. Pacific-12, 18-39 ATS in their last 57 Sunday games and 12-3 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Cardinal are 6-21 ATS in their last 27 Sunday games, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a straight up win and 21-7 ATS in their last 28 home games. The Huskies are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Stanford and the home team is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The under is 8-3 in Cardinal last 11 overall. The under is 49-23 in Huskies last 72 overall.
The Washington Huskies won the first meeting against Stanford by 16 points and will be alert for this contest after losing to the Cal Golden Bears. Washington is still a highly explosive team and is winning its last five games by an average of 2.6 points despite shooting under 44 percent from the field. The Stanford Cardinal have been the surprise of the Pac-12, which includes an 8-4 ATS record at home and winning their last five games by an average of 8.2 points. Still, Washington is head and shoulders the more talented team here and won't be caught sleeping after its recent outing. I'll lay the bucket with the Huskies.
