BetUS host Gary Segars, and expert handicappers Kyle Hunter and Corbie Craig preview the College Football Week 11 game between Utah and Washington. They'll go over the best value college football odds available and betting trends and share their College Football expert predictions, picks and best bets.


The line on this game had dropped to Washington -8 from -9.5 with around 65% of the spread action on the Huskies.  We were seeing a handful of books drop to -7.5.  Sagarin was giving us a number of 5.83, suggesting a pretty significant overlay here of between 1.5 and 3.5.

Bryson Barnes (Utah) passing yards total was coming in at 155.5.

Barnes passed for 161 yards and a career-high four touchdowns and Ja’Quinden Jackson rushed 13 times for 111 yards to lead No. 18 Utah past Arizona State 55-3 on Saturday.   He threw for a career-high 4 TDs.

That performance came off of a blowout loss to Oregon the week before.

“You don’t want to let a team beat you twice,” Barnes said. “We had to regain our energy and get over that loss, no matter how bad it was.”

“Incredible performance on defense. So many positives in the game and Bryson Barnes played exceptionally well,” Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said after his team became the first to gain more than 500 yards and allow less than 100 in a Pac-12 game since at least 2000.

Michael Penix (Washington) passing yards total was posted at 285.5.  After leading Washington to yet another victory (they remain undefeated) Penix Jr. remained atop the oddsboard as the favorite to win the Heisman, moving from +270 to +140.  He opened the season at 11-1 odds.
