Washington State hosts Washington in a massive Apple Cup matchup with College Football Playoff implications. According to OddsShark, Washington is favored by six points.

The over-under is set at 64 points. Washington has been just 5-6 against the spread this season while Washington State has fared a bit better this season at 6-5.

The OddsShark computer projects a 45.1-32.5 Washington victory. The computer is taking Washington to cover the spread and the over on the point total.

The teams are fighting for the Pac-12 North division and a spot in the Pac-12 championship game. A win for the Huskies would put Washington closer to the College Football Playoff.

This matchup is the first time in quite some time that the Apple Cup has had national championship implications. Washington State has the advantage of playing the Huskies in Pullman.

The Cougars are coming off a loss to Colorado while Washington had a victory over Arizona State last week.

While we like Washington to win this matchup, expect Washington State to keep the game close at home in a rivalry matchup. Heavy also likes a lower scoring matchup than Vegas projects as Washington squeaks out a victory.

Heavy’s Pick: Washington 27 Washington State 24. Washington State -6. Under on the Point Total.
