Making sports betting picks is one of my specialties, and today, I’m making my Saturday Football Tipster pick based upon the football trends and Week 11 college football odds for the Utah Utes vs. Washington Huskies game on Saturday, November 10th at 10:30 p.m. ET.
Utah Utes (4-5, 5-4 ATS) -1
Washington Huskies (5-4, 5-4 ATS) +1
There is a lot of talk about how much better the Utes have been playing in the last few weeks, and this really has caught my eye that they are favored here on the road in Seattle. It’s true that Utah has won its last two games by convincing margins, a 49-6 win over the Washington State Cougars and a 49-27 victory over the Cal Golden Bears. Take that all for what it’s really worth though, which in my opinion, isn’t all that much. This team still hasn’t won a game on the road this year, and it still hasn’t really come all that close either since losing to the Utah State Aggies in overtime back on September 7th.
Washington has quietly played some better ball as well, and it has done so against a much better schedule. Yes, the Huskies also beat down Cal in this stretch, but they did so on the road, not at home, and instead of playing against a lousy Washington State team, U-Dub beat the Oregon State Beavers. Washington still has an atrocious offense, but defensively, this team hasn’t really allowed all that much, save for the best teams that the Pac-12 has to offer offensively.
Remember that last year when these teams met, the Huskies were clearly the better side, and they walked away with a 17-point win as 10-point underdogs. Bowl eligibility can be had with a ‘W’, and Head Coach Steve Sarkisian knows just how important that really is for a program that hasn’t achieved all that much extended success for the last several years. Go with the Huskies at home.
Utah @ Washington Tips: Washington Huskies +1
