2022 Season - Picks Against the Spread: 14-12
Colorado vs UCLA
Betting Line: UCLA -21.5
After Colorado's latest deflating loss, the Buffs are officially in danger of going 0-12. It's tough to see a win on the schedule with their play so far in 2022. The Bruins looked shaky last week but should bounce back for an easy win that will put them at 4-0 before a showdown against the Huskies in Pasadena.
Prediction: UCLA 38 vs Colorado 10
#15 Oregon at WSU
Betting Line: Oregon -6.5
WSU has won four of the past seven against the Ducks, making this one of the more fun rivalries the past few years. The Cougs have shown an elite defense this Fall, allowing just 12.7 points per game and should be able to keep the Duck offense in check. Expect an electric home atmosphere in Pullman that should have an impact on this game. Jake Dickert and squad keep it very close but Oregon barely pulls one out in the end.
Prediction: Oregon 27 vs WSU 20
Arizona at Cal
Betting Line: Cal -3.5
Arizona has won six straight against the Bears but every game has been decided by seven points or fewer between these programs since 2010. Both teams seem to have solid defenses so this could be a low scoring battle. With Arizona having the edge at QB, the Wildcats pull out a close victory one more time.
Prediction: Arizona 20 vs Cal 16
#7 USC at Oregon State
Betting Line: USC -6
USC and Oregon State both played Fresno State. The Trojans won handily 45-17, while the Beavers had to score a last second touchdown to pull out a victory, 35-32. Many seem to think Oregon State will pull off this upset but I don't think USC has been given enough credit for how they've played this season. The Beavers fail to stop Caleb Williams and lose in a shootout.
Prediction: USC 38 vs Oregon State 28
#13 Utah at Arizona State
Betting Line: Utah -15.5
After a shocking defeat to Eastern Michigan, ASU abruptly fired Herm Edwards. No one knows how the players will respond to this news but the guess here is they come out flat and the Utes run all over them.
Prediction: Utah 40 vs ASU 21
Stanford at #18 Washington
Betting Line: Washington -13.5
The Huskies have become one of the best surprises in the Pac-12. Their offense and the play of Penix has made them arguably the most entertaining team to watch in the conference. The Cardinal revamped their offense in the off-season and thus far the results have been promising. David Shaw's program will move the ball on the Huskies but UW wins a dogfight.
Prediction: Washington 34 vs Stanford 30
