Washington Huskies (-10) at Oregon State Beavers
Kezirian: This is all about the letdown spot for a Washington team that put everything it had into last week's home game against Utah. The Huskies lost a heartbreaker at home, and now they must hit the road to face an Oregon State team that provides minimal excitement. Meanwhile, the Beavers have won back-to-back games in the underdog role, and I think they're a live 'dog here, as well.
The Beavers are two wins away from bowl eligibility, and their best chances are the next two games at home, before closing out the season on the road at Washington State and Oregon. I think it is a great spot to back Oregon State -- with a raucous home crowd on national television -- catching a flat Huskies team. Now, the Beavers' defense is pretty weak, so I have much more confidence in their ability to score points. In my eyes, a high-scoring non-cover is more likely than a low-scoring cover, so I am opting for the team total.
Pick: Oregon State team total over 27.5 points (FanDuel)
