Washington State Cougars
Pick through the FOX Sports Betting Analyst Geoff Schwartz:
The Apple Cup at the Palouse with a home kick at 7:30 p.m.: Gotta love the home Cougars in this place.
The forecast for Saturday night in Pullman is cold with wet weather, either freezing rain or snow. That’s not ideal for Washington’s high-powered passing attack against the best defense they’ve seen all season. The Cougars rank 12th in defensive efficiency and 21st in points per drive. They are equipped to slow down Washington’s passing attack, which we’ve seen is possible when playing better defenses like Oregon State and Cal.
Yes, I worry about Washington State’s offense in cold, wet conditions. The Cougars can run the ball, though they mostly choose to ignore that part of their offense. They have a shaky offensive line that can lead to pressure and mistakes from quarterback Cam Ward.
However, Washington’s defense shouldn’t offer much resistance. I like the home Cougars to have a little upset in this game.
TO PICK UP: Washington State (+2 to FOX Bet) to losee by less than 2 points (or win outright)
