Pac-12 picks, Week 4: Picking the favorites
The league went 17-8 against the spread vs. FBS opponents the first three weeks.
I did not recapture the parlay magic of Week 2, but did manage to break even on my picks in the final week of nonconference play.
I regret to inform, however, that I am now 0-3 picking Washington’s games against the spread.
If my accounting is correct, the Pac-12 went a combined 17-8 against the spread in nonconference play the first three weeks (FBS opponents only). The Huskies are 2-1, and obliterated the line in both of their ATS victories (56-19 as 14.5-point favorites against Boise State, and 41-7 as 16-point favorites at Michigan State) while falling just shy of covering -34.5 vs. Tulsa (43-10). But the Pac-12 schools only play each other the rest of the way — save for USC and Stanford each facing Notre Dame — so we are unable to leverage the league’s successful ATS trend.
For what it’s worth, I’m on five of six favorites this week.
