Betting Edge To Look For In Week 6

Washington Huskies players in action

Monday, October 3, 2016 2:41 PM GMT

Washington’s resounding 44-6 win over 7th-ranked Stanford at Husky Stadium on Friday night means we have another team to talk about in the National Championship race. Let’s see what we learned west of the Mississippi River this weekend and dig for a value-laden futures book NCAAF pick.

Washington May Be Best In The West; Texas Play Hasn't Matched Preseason Hype

What we learned in Week 5 west side of the Mississippi River is that the Pac-12's now #9 Washington will lose after the Huskies (5-0 SU, 3-2 ATS) showed Stanford who's boss in the conference with an impressive 44-6 enema in the Evergreen State on Friday night (WASH -3½, Bookmaker). And Stanford's 7 KO Returns to 0 Punt Returns defines their game more than the Final Score and the Home-field Advantage at Husky Stadium.

Myles Gaskin (18 rushes, 100 yards, 2 TDs) and Washington are now 53-41-1 ATS (56.4%) since 2009 and have the kind of ferocious defense which wins bettors money. The Huskies are at Eugene on Saturday to face an Oregon team which has covered 5 straight times and Washington is just 1-6 ATS its L7 trips to Autzen Stadium (WASH -7, 2016 Games of the Year, Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook).

So Wazoo QB Jake Browning (15/21, 210 yards, 3 TDs) played a phenomenal game and the Huskies sent to Stanford, and the rest of the nation a message that they need to be in the national title conversation. Washington defeated a very good Cardinal team Friday night and one which had become very good at winning on the Road. But Washington limited Stanford Heisman Trophy candidate Christian McCaffrey to just 49 yards rushing and the Huskies staunch Defense (15.2 ppg, #12 in nation) sent a message that this was not to be the Cardinal's night under the primetime spotlights in The Emerald City.

Texas Longhorns Not What We Thought, Still Seem Years Away From Past Glory

We also learned that #22 Texas is not what we thought about two weeks ago after a close 50-47 win over Notre Dame in Week 1, the Longhorns (2-2 SU , 2-2 ATS) have lost back-to-back games against California (50-43) and to Oklahoma State (49-31) Saturday (OK ST -2, at 5Dimes), so allowing 99 points in two games and falling to 2-2 means 3rd-year Head Coach Charlie Strong (14-14-1 ATS) may be coaching his last season for the soon-to-be-unranked Longhorns. Texas plays Oklahoma in the Red River Shootout at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas on Saturday (OK -2, 2016 Games of the Year, Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook).
