NCAAF Week 6 Odds & Prediction on California at Washington.

NCAAF Week 6 Odds & Prediction on California at Washington

Written by on October 4, 2017

Every college football season delivers a team or two that end up being something of a surprise package. Last season, it was the Washington Huskies who emerged from the pack, making it all the way to the college football playoffs, where they were swept aside by the Alabama Crimson Tide. The Huskies came into this season no longer able to creep up on anyone, and they also knew that this time around may be tougher, but in this case, the NCAAF Week 6 Odds are by their side.Their next hurdle comes this weekend when they welcome in the California Golden Bears. Cal has seen their season fall apart after a strong start, and it has been conference play that has done them in. This may prove to be the toughest challenge yet for the Golden Bears, as they come in as a 27 ½ point underdog.In general, the PAC-12 look much better this year, with both Oregon and USC taking a big step forward, so neither California or Washington can think they are going to finish at the top with no hard effort.

Why bet on the California Golden Bears NCAAF Week 6 Odds?

The California Golden Bears got their season off to a good start, winning their first 3 games of the season, including an impressive win over the North Carolina Tar Heels in Week 1. The wheels started to come off when conference play began, although the Golden Bears were a little unlucky in their game against USC. The same cannot be said about their game against the Oregon Ducks last weekend, where they were pounded 45-24.The Golden Bears are giving up over 28 PPG, which is not going to serve them well against a Huskies team that always seems to find the clearest route to the end zone. The Golden Bears have only won once in their last 5 visits to Husky Stadium, but they have managed to cover in 7 of their last 10 trips to Washington. 7 of the last 8 meetings between these two in Washington have gone UNDER, with the point total for this one set at 56 ½ points.

Why bet on the Washington Huskies NCAAF Week 6 Odds?

The Huskies have picked off where they left off last regular season, opening the 2017 college football season with 5 straight wins. The majority of their wins were games that they were expected to win quite comfortably, but they did a very nice job of avoiding a potential trip-up game with a 37-10 win over the Colorado Buffaloes. The Huskies are getting the job done on both sides of the football, averaging 44 PPG on offense while giving up just shy of 11 PPG on defense.The Huskies are huge NCAAF Week 6 Odds favorites.While Washington has been a great SU bet this season, they have not been quite as dominating ATS, going 3-2 through the first 5 weeks. Through the last 10 meetings with California, the Huskies have hone 8-2 SU and are also 7-3 ATS in those games. Washington has been very tough to beat at home, going 10-1 in their last 11, which includes a 4-1 record in their last 5 homes games versus the Golden Bears.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

It’s still relatively early in the season, but with slips by the top teams in the PAC-12, the Huskies will be looking to cement their top spot while continuing to impress the playoff committee. This is a game that Washington should win handily, and I like them to cover. I also like the OVER in this one.Score: California Golden Bears 14 – Washington Huskies 44
