The Oregon State Beavers and the Washington Huskies are set to kick off their college football clash on Saturday 10/27, and I’m set to make my college football pick for the affair at CenturyLink Field. Kickoff is set for 10:15 ET, and I’ve got the perfect NCAA football pick for this outstanding clash.
#8 Oregon State Beavers (6-0, 5-1 ATS) -5
Washington Huskies (3-4, 3-4 ATS) +5
I really got jobbed last week on the last game of the night, as I really should have had the ‘under’ in the San Diego State/Nevada game. But alas, I move onward and upward, and I’m taking my chances on the last game of the night on Saturday this week as well, knowing that Joe Public is only going to continue to push as hard as it can on the Beavers.
Call me a pessimist, but I still refuse to believe that the Beavers are going to finish the year ranked in the Top 25 when all is said and done. Who the heck has this team beaten this year? Okay, a road win at Arizona, a road win at UCLA, a home win against Wisconsin… The wins are good, but they aren’t great. This isn’t the greatest game in the world either, but it comes against a Washington team that might legitimately be one of the best 30 or so in the country in spite of its 3-4 record. Remember that the losses have come to LSU, Oregon, USC, and Arizona, and it is clear in my eyes that the Beavers would be whooped by at least the first three of those teams.
What I really don’t like about this one is the idea that Oregon State has covered eight in a row and won seven of the last eight SU in this series. Still, I think that Washington has the better team believe it or not, and here at CenturyLink Field, that should mean that an “upset” is brewing.
