OddsChecker: Go with Washington State on the moneyline vs. Washington

Matt MacKay writes: "Penix has looked shaky in certain spots and this could be another weird game script that sees the Cougars stall out the Huskies' offense with its 23rd-ranked scoring defense, allowing under 20 points per game on average. In a renewed rivalry game with plenty of new faces, I like the Cougars to pull off the upset and win outright at +110 on the moneyline."
