At the onset of the season, it was expected that Washington would be in the thick of the Pac 12 race. It was assumed that Head coach Chris Petersen had the U-Dub program stabilized to the point of being a perennial contender. Which is what has made the Huskies season such a massive disappointment. To show Washington has been one of the biggest College Football betting Games disappointment for 2019. Now comes the Apple Cup week against the freewheeling Washington State Cougars. A loss to Wazzu would serve as the final coup de grace to a bad season.

Cougars vs. Huskies Overview
Washington limps into this one with a sportsbook record of 6-5 both straight up and vs. the line with six overs. Last week was a 20-14 debacle of a loss at Colorado. U-Dub has national metrics of 70th for total offense and 29th for points allowed. Specifically, a win over Wazzu could take away the bad taste of a lost season.
Counter to that is a Washington State mark of 6-5 straight up, 4-7 on the board, and 7-4 over the total. Wazzu is coming off a 54-53 shootout home win over Oregon State to clinch bowl eligibility. Overall the Cougars rank fifth for total offense, but 119th for defense. To illuminate, Mike Leach’s team plays the college football version of pond hockey.
