College Football Week 4 Odds, Picks & Prediction: Washington vs. Stanford
Michael Penix has turned this Huskies offense into the 2nd highest in passing yards per game, and they have looked outstanding. Michigan State was a big test, and they passed with flying colors putting up 503 total yards and 397 through the air. Washington has also been much stronger than expected on Defense through 3 games, only giving up an average of 18 PPG. The Huskies also rank in the top 30 in rushing defense and top 40 in passing defense, despite being up by at least 18 points at halftime of all three games they’ve played.
Stanford is a team that can jump up and bites a stronger opponent. They did it to Oregon last season, and they played Washington tough, losing by only a TD. Stanford only lost to USC by 13 points last week, but they scored twice in the final two minutes, and their leading offensive producer, RB E.J. Smith, is out for this game with an undisclosed injury.
Washington’s offense is why I think they run away with this game because it will pressure Stanford to abandon the run and pass in the 2nd half, leading to either short fields or turnovers for Washington. Stanford QB Tanner McKee is a big-time recruit and is on NFL radars, but he made some mistakes last week, throwing two picks and taking five sacks. Washington isn’t the get-right game for Stanford, and I have the Huskies winning big.
Bet: Washington -14 (-104 on FanDuel)
