The Line: Washington Huskies 0 -- Over/Under:
The Utah Utes will travel to play the Washington Huskies in a Pac-12 conference game this weekend.
The Washington Huskies are coming off of an impressive win against Arizona last weekend. The Washington offense is averaging 27.1 points per game with 350.9 yards per game. Quarterback Jake Browning leads the Washington offense with 1595 yards, 10 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions. Myles Gaskin leads the Washington rushing attack with 655 yards and 6 touchdowns. Joshua Perkins is the leading receiver for Washington with 322 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Washington defense has given up 16.9 points per game with 360 yards per game. Washington’s defense has 22 sacks, 4 fumble recoveries, and 11 interceptions this season. Washington’s success comes when Jake Browning is healthy, so protecting him will be a huge key in this game.
The Utah Utes are coming off of a win against Oregon State in their last game. The Utah offense is averaging 33.8 points per game with 387.9 yards per game. Quarterback Travis Wilson leads the Utah offense with 1432 yards, 10 touchdowns, and 7 interceptions. Devontae Booker is the leading rusher for Utah with 966 yards and 9 touchdowns. Britain Covey is the leading receiver for Utah with 381 yards and 4 touchdowns. The Utah defense given up 21.4 points per game with 363.6 yards per game with 21 sacks, 6 fumble recoveries, and 13 interceptions this season. Utah has had a very good season and will have to be prepared for a tough Washington team in order to stay in first place in the Pac-12 South division.
Utah is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 road games. Utah is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 conference games. The over is 4-1 in Utah’s last 5 road games. Washington is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games on field turf. The under is 8-0 in Washington’s last 8 conference games.
Utah is starting to get back on track after their loss against USC two weeks ago. While Washington is coming off of a big win against Arizona, I do not think they have a good enough offense to beat Utah. Utah’s defense should be able to shut down Washington and come away with a victory. I expect Utah to get a victory in this one.
