2018 Stanford Cardinal Betting Odds

NCAA Football Betting: For just the second time in the seven-year tenure of David Shaw the Cardinal failed to win at least 10 games. But 2017 was still a successful campaign on The Farm thanks to Bryce Love. The Heisman Trophy runner-up returned to school to finish out his career and will be the featured player on a Stanford offense that has the potential to be one of the best in the Pac-12. For the fourth time since divisions were formed in 2011, the Cardinal won the North. However, they lost the conference title game for the first time and dropped the Alamo Bowl, denying Shaw another 10-win season. You can expect the Cardinal to be in the thick of the race again in 2018.

Cardinal Odds To Win Pac 12: +501

Cardinal Regular Season Win Total: 8

All Stanford has done under Shaw is win football games. Many thought the program would decline after Jim Harbaugh left, but Shaw kept the ball rolling with 34 victories in his first three seasons and a record of 73-22 in his first seven campaigns. And there won’t be a dropoff in 2018 with a talented group returning. The bunch is led by Love, the Heisman Trophy favorite after scampering for 2,118 yards last season, the second-highest total in conference history.

There’s more to the offense than just Love, however. Quarterback K.J. Costello is back after throwing 14 touchdown passes and only four interceptions last year. He took over for Keller Chryst and led the Cardinal to wins over Washington and Notre Dame while getting them another Pac-12 North crown. He didn’t compile a lot of yards, but he didn’t need to with the Cardinal running for over 202 per game.

There are threats in the passing game to keep defenses honest. J.J. Arcega-Whiteside hauled in nine scoring grabs and led the team in receptions and yards. And the playmakers will operate behind a strong and deep offensive line. The concern for the Cardinal lies on defense. The line is inexperienced and the secondary lost two starters to the NFL. Bobby Okereke leads a group of linebackers that will need to anchor the unit until everything else gets figured out. That’s not enough to deter the Cardinal from contending and the North could be decided in November with a trip to UW.

Washington joined the Pacific Coast Conference in 1916 and the league has morphed into what we now know as the Pac-12. UW and Cal are the only schools with uninterrupted conference affiliation since the first season of play. It’s been a rich history on the gridiron for the Huskies, who returned to relevance in 2016 for the first time since the Rick Neuheisel era in the early 2000s.

The Huskies claimed their first of seven Rose Bowl victories and first conference title since 1936 with a 10-1 overall record in 1959. The Huskies would duplicate the feat the following year and claim its first of two national championships in the process. The program endured some challenging times until Don James was named head coach in 1975. It took a few years, but by James’ third season, the Huskies had become a powerhouse on the national scene with annual rankings in the AP poll and bowl appearances. The Huskies won 22 straight games between 1990 and 1992 and shared the 1991 national title with Miami after going 12-0.

The program hit a dark period in the early 2000s following the departure of Neuheisel, posting just 23 victories in a seven-year span under Keith Gilbertson and Tyrone Willingham. The 2008 club failed to win a game for the first time as a major college program. UW returned to a bowl game in 2010 under Steve Sarkisian, but the Huskies could never get over the hump. Petersen was lured away after a successful run at Boise State and in his third season the Huskies matched a program record for wins and reached the CFP. A 10-win campaign in 2017 gave Washington back-to-back double digit win seasons for the first time since the early 1990s.
