Pac-12 picks, Week 5: Another week of (mostly) mismatches
Four of five games this week have double-digit point spreads, including Washington's.
It was another above-.500 week of picking Pac-12 games, with a perfect record on my straight-up predictions.
Not that you should be all that impressed by the latter. Washington State beating Oregon State as a 3.5-point home underdog hardly constitutes an upset, and every other betting favorite at least won straight up, even if two failed to cover the spread.
Colorado is a three-touchdown underdog again this week. Washington is favored by multiple scores in the desert. Ditto for Oregon in Palo Alto. In fact, there’s only one single-digit point spread in the Pac-12 this week. I’ve got the visiting underdog in that one.
One Friday game this week, with another four on Saturday. Washington State and UCLA are idle. All lines courtesy of BetMGM.
Last week: 4-2 ATS (6-0 straight up)
Season: 19-14 (38-3)
