Friday Night Pick - Oregon State vs. Washington

You're staying in on a chilly November Friday night after a miserable work/school week. You look at The Score app and see that at 10:30 pm ET, the 23rd-ranked Oregon State Beavers are playing the Washington Huskies. You'll be up late eating a Doritos Locos Taco with a Baja Blast, and you need a pick on this game. That's where I'm here to help.

Karter's Kardinal Rule (in College Football)

If an unranked team is favored at home versus a ranked team, you ALWAYS take the unranked favorite. The unranked Huskies find themselves as a -4.5 favorite against the 23rd-ranked Beavers. I think you know the pick.

Washington has scored at least 28 points or more in every game this season. They are currently ranked 10th in the country in points per game, averaging 40.4. Washington also ranks first in passing yards this year. A key in this game is for the Huskies to get out to an early lead and force Oregon State into a shootout. I like the Huskies' chances at doing so. If you don't pick Washington then you hate dogs.

Pick: Washington -4.5 (2u)
