Colorado vs. Washington State Football Prediction from Ben Burns: October 21st 2017

Colorado Buffaloes vs. Washington State Cougars
College Football Prediction: Colorado +10.5 (October 21st 2017)

Some of you will recall that I successfully played against the Cougars, at Cal, last week, the start of a 14-4 Fri/Sat/Sun streak. Washington State was “riding high,” entering that game. The 6-0 Cougs had a top-ten ranking and were coming off victories over USC and Oregon. They’d close as -16.5 point favorites.

Then, Friday The 13th got them. Something did, anyway. The Cougs didn’t show up and the Bears came away with a convincing 37-3 victory. Thats right. They beat the closing line by 50 points.

Off that rude awakening, I’m not sure that the Cougs are ready to be laying double-digits here.

Colorado, which beat WSU by 14 points last season, is 9-4 ATS its last 13 true road games. Both this season’s road games have been close, each decided by four or fewer points. Take a look at the visitors here.

USC Trojans vs. Washington State Cougars Over-Under Prediction: September 29th 2017

USC Trojans vs. Washington State Cougars
NCAA Football Over-Under Prediction: Under 65.5 points (September 29th 2017)

A lot of people are expecting a shootout tonight between the Cougars and Trojans with all the offensive fire-power that will be on display, including two of the top quarterbacks in the country in USC’s Sam Darnold and Washington State’s Luke Falk. I believe that has this total inflated quite a bit and the value is clearly on the UNDER.

The Trojans have had some lapses and let some teams hang around that they shouldn’t, but the defense definitely turned it up a notch after that poor showing in the opener against Western Michigan. They have been much better against the pass than the run and that’s ideal here against a Washington State offense that basically only throws the ball. USC can get after the quarterback with their pass rush and Falk likes to hold on to the ball, which should lead to some big sacks and empty possessions for the Cougars.

A lot of people think Washington State is all offense, but they have been playing much better on the defensive side of the ball the last couple of seasons and are currently 12th in the country in total defense coming into this game. They are 42nd against the run (120.0 ypg) and 12th against the pass (142.3 ypg). I think they can give USC’s offense some problems, especially given the circumstances of this being a home night game that is getting a ton of attention. Martin Stadium is going to be electric.

UNDER is now 22-8-1 in the Trojans last 31 conference games and 4-1 in their last 5 road games against a team with a winning home record. UNDER is also 6-0 in USC’s last 6 as a road favorite and 6-0 in the Cougars last 6 home games after rushing for 125 or less yards in 2 straight games. Take the UNDER!

Minnesota vs. Washington State Holiday Bowl Over-Under & Point Spread Pick: December 27th 2016

Minnesota Golden Gophers vs. Washington State Cougars – 7:00pm ET December 27th 2016

Point Spread: Washington State is an 8.5 point favorite against Minnesota in the 2016 National Funding Holiday Bowl. The over/under for this game is 61 points. (Note: Line opened at WSU -5.5)

Public Perception: 65% of the wagering public is betting that Washington State will cover the point spread against Minnesota. 66% believe that this game will go over the total of 61 points.

Recent Performance: Minnesota finished their season out 5-2 with a loss in their last game against the Wisconsin Badgers by a score of 31-17 as a 14 point underdog. The week prior to that, they beat Northwestern by a score of 29-12 as a pick. Washington State finished out their year on an 8-2 winning streak, losing their last two games which were against Washington and Colorado by respective scores of 17-45 and 24-38.


Side Betting Trends: Washington State is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. Washington State is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Big Ten. Minnesota is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game. Minnesota is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game. Minnesota is 20-8 ATS in their last 28 games following a straight up loss.

Over/Under Betting Trends: Under is 4-0-1 in Cougars last 5 games following a double-digit loss at home. Under is 4-0 in Cougars last 4 games after allowing more than 40 points in their previous game. Under is 4-0-1 in Cougars last 5 games following a straight up loss.

Under is 12-5 in Golden Gophers last 17 games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous game. Under is 7-3 in Golden Gophers last 10 games after allowing more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game.

Head-to-Head Betting Trends: No Trends Available

The Cougars look to finish the year with a win as they face Minnesota in the National Funding Holiday Bowl in California on December 27th. The Cougars bounced back from two early losses to be a contender in their conference before finishing with back-to-back losses to CU and WASH, while the Golden Gophers will play in a bowl for a fifth straight year. On paper, Minnesota should have a tough time slowing down Washington’s pass offense, which led the Pac-12, but we feel this game will have slower tempo than expected, giving the Gophers a chance for a late point spread cover.

Betting Pick: Minnesota Golden Gophers +8.5
Over-Under Pick: Under 61 points

California vs. Washington State NCAAF Betting Prediction from Sean Murphy: November 12th 2016

CALIFORNIA VS. GOLDEN STATECalifornia Golden Bears vs. Washington State Cougars
NCAA Betting Prediction: Washington State -14.5 points (November 12th 2016)

Saturday CFB free play. My selection is on Washington State minus the points over Cal at 10:30 pm et on Saturday.

Cal is mired in a difficult season, having gone 4-5 overall and 2-4 in Pac-12 play. Things won’t get any easier on Saturday night as the Golden Bears head to Pullman to face what I consider to be an underrated Washington State squad.

The Cougars are 7-2 SU and 5-4 ATS and fresh off an easy 69-7 rout of Arizona at home last Saturday. I look for them to keep it rolling here as they play with double revenge following back-to-back close losses against Cal over the last two years.

The difference here should be the Cougars defense. While Washington State is known for its offense, I don’t believe its defense should be overlooked. This is a unit that can get torched at times, but also one that is capable of rising to the occasion. I see this as a manageable matchup against a Bears offense that has struggled with consistency over the last couple of games.

Washington State has outgained all but one of its opponents this season in terms of total yardage and I look for it to control proceedings again on Saturday night.

Take Washington State (8*).

Arizona vs. Washington State Basketball Betting Prediction from Dave Price: February 3rd 2016

ARIZONA VS. WASHINGTON STATEArizona vs. Washington State
Basketball Betting Prediction: Arizona -10 points (February 3rd 2016)

The Arizona Wildcats got their wake-up call with back-to-back losses to California and Oregon. They responded with an 80-63 blowout victory over Oregon State last time out, and now I look for them to put another beat down on Washington State tonight. The Cougars are probably the worst team in the Pac-12. They have gone 1-8 SU & 2-7 ATS in conference play this season and stand little chance of staying within double-digits of the Wildcats tonight. Arizona has dominated Washington State over the past five years, going 9-0 SU & 9-0 ATS in its last nine meetings with the last five all coming by 14 points or more. Take Arizona.
