At the beginning of the season two of the hottest teams on the future board for the Pac 12 title were Stanford and Washington. Namely the Cardinal and Huskies have been two of the most successful teams in the conference. Stanford has won the North Division title in five of their seven seasons under David Shaw. Balanced against that is Washington’s NCAA Football betting success with Chris Peterson. Included in that is a 2016 college football playoff appearance. For all that these squads have been among the most disappointing in the entire country for 2018.

Stanford vs. Washington TV Coverage: Pac 12 Network
Stanford is 5-3 straight up and 4-4 against the spread with a 4-4 mark on totals. Last week the Cardinal suffered a 41-38 home loss to Washington State. More emphatically it continues a slide of three losses in their last four games. Among the frustrations for Cardinal fans has been running back Bryce Love. Starting with hype for a Heisman Trophy, Love has not gotten the blocking necessary for success. To illuminate Stanford ranks a catastrophic 125th in the country for rushing offense. Of major concern is the Cardinal rankings of 88th for scoring offense and 86th for defense.
Washington is 6-3 straight up bit a most alarming 2-7 vs. the odds. For one thing they have become one of the top overlays in the country. Naturally for a team picked to dominate the Pac 12 this has been a major letdown campaign. Last week the Huskies lost an ugly 12-10 game at Cal. In spite of quarterback Jake Browning also touted for the Heisman, U-Dub ranks 87th for scoring offense. Conversely the good defense that ranks 8th for points allowed has gone to waste.
Stats to Consider
Stanford has been a terrible NCAA Football Betting value in road games. For example, the Cardinal has covered just two of their last eight games away from home. Stanford has also gone under the total in five of their last seven road matchups. Balanced against that is Washington’s profit losses in home games. The Huskies have brought home the bacon in just two of their last six games in Seattle. Additionally, five of U-Dub’s last seven home games have gone under the total.
Team vs. Team
Washington has had the online wagering advantage in this head to head series with Stanford. Moreover, three of the last five meetings in this head to head series have gone over the total. In a similar way have the Huskies held the wagering edge with Stanford. U-Dub has paid in two of their last three at Husky Stadium with the Cardinal.
Matchup to Watch
In like manner both teams have gone bust after considerable hype. Most important of all they have not provided NCAA Football Betting value. However, Washington has a big matchup advantage against Washington. The Huskies defense should maul the pedestrian Cardinal attack. Late on the day U-Dub should wear down the Tree.

To conclude Washington is the better of two disappointing choices here.
