In NCAA future bets, the Huskies are +7500 in the National Championship odds. UCLA is at +12500 to win the CFP. Washington is the +600 fourth betting choice to capture the Pac-12 title.  The Bruins are the fifth pick to take the Pac-12 at +1000.

Huskies’ Penix Dominating The Air

Washington quarterback Michael Penix Jr is leading the nation with 1,388 passing yards and 347 passing yards per game. He’s deadlocked for eighth in the NCAA with eight touchdown passes, against just one interception. Penix is sixth in yards per completion (15.09).

Every facet of the offense was working for the Huskies during last week’s 40-22 drubbing of Stanford. Running back Wayne Taulapapa rambled for 120 yards on just 13  carries. That’s 9.2 yards per carry.  Receiver Rome Odunze finished the day with 20.1 yards per catch. He grabbed eight balls for 161 yards.

Thompson-Robinson Double Threat For Bruins

In Dorian Thompson-Robinson at quarterback, the Bruins have a player who can make plays with his arm and his feet. During UCLA’s 47-17 Week 4 rout of Colorado, Thompson-Robinson was 19-of-23 for 234 yards and two TDs through the air.

He also pulled the ball down and rushed for 56 yards on seven carries. For the season, Thompson-Robinson is showing 898 yards passing with eight TDs and only one interception. He’s fifth in the nation with a 74.8 completion percentage.

Running back Zach Charbonnet scampered for 104 yards on the ground on nine carries against Colorado. He averaged 11.6 yards per carry.

Washington vs UCLA Prediction

The Huskies already own a statement win. Washington put a 39-28 thumping on then #9 Michigan State. On the flip side, UCLA scrambled for a 32-31 triumph over South Alabama.

In the win over Stanford, the Washington defense stymied the Cardinal run game. Stanford was limited to 86 yards on the ground, and just 2.4 yards per carry.

The UCLA defensive front was also in stuff mode against Colorado’s rushing attack. The Buffaloes were held to 1.5 yards per carry and 51 total yards.

The Huskies also sacked Cardinal QB Tanner McKee eight times. That pass rush could end up proving vital in containing the elusive Thompson-Robinson.

Washington has already equaled last season’s win total. The Huskies will add another W this week.

Pick: Washington Huskies -3 (-110).
