Washington Huskies 2023 College Football Season Betting Guide

Washington Huskies 2023 College Football Season Betting Guide

If it wasn’t for TCU’s miraculous run to a College Football Playoff championship game appearance last season, the Washington Huskies might have been the best story in college football. The Huskies went 11-2 last season under first-year coach Kalen DeBoer. Washington lost a three-way tiebreaker that would have put it in the Pac-12 title game.

The Huskies will return quarterback Michael Penix Jr., who passed for 4,641 yards and eight touchdowns last season.

Let’s see if the Washington Huskies have what it takes to back the betting odds to win the National Championship.

Washington Huskies | Pac–12 Conference during the 2023 NCAA Division I FBS football season
School: University of Washington
Head coach: Kalen DeBoer| 2nd season
Home field: Husky Stadium | 70,083

Washington Odds to Win Championship: +3400

 

Washington Expected to Be a Strong Outfit Again

Returning Penix has Huskies’ fans excited for what could be ahead. Washington has an over/under of nine wins. The Huskies have the third-best odds of winning the Pac-12 at +400. Washington only trails USC (+170) and Oregon (+300) in the odds of winning the conference title.

 

Huskies Are Not Afraid to Punch Up 

Washington isn’t one of the Power 5 programs that are worried about putting together a softball schedule to build confidence. The Huskies will open the season against Boise State. While the Broncos struggled throughout last season, Boise State still battle back to make the Mountain West championship game before bowing to Fresno State.

The Huskies will also play a solid AAC program in Tulsa before heading to East Lansing, Mich., to take on Michigan State. If Washington can escape the first three games unscathed, there is a chance that will give the Huskies a leg up entering Pac-12 play.

 

Washington’s Early Conference Schedule is Favorable

The Huskies will spend a lot of time at home during the month of conference play. Washington will open with a home game against California before a trip to Arizona precedes wo home games against Oregon and Arizona State. The Huskies beating Oregon last season removed the Ducks from the national championship picture.

Washington’s meeting with Oregon will likely prove to be its toughest test early in the season.

 

Challenges on the Road

USC is one team that has a lot of high expectations as well. The Trojans missed out on the CFP after they couldn’t beat Utah last season. USC will return Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Caleb Williams and a roster loaded with stars. 

Washington will have to go to the LA Coliseum to play USC. The Huskies will need to be at their best to win this game. Washington will also have trips to Oregon State and Stanford on the back half of its schedule. The Beavers showed major improvements last season, while the Cardinals struggle to find their footing.

 

Washington Huskies 2023 Prediction

The Huskies making such a large splash last season was due to Penix. He is a big-time playmaker at quarterback and made a lot of big plays after coming over from Indiana. Penix’s experience should help Washington be toward the top of the conference. If things bounce back for the Huskies, there is a possibility they could contend for a spot in the CFP.

Washington should get to double-digit wins and benefit from testing themselves out of the conference early in the season.
