Washington Huskies Betting

Chris Petersen’s last game will be a memorable one even though it’s not in the place that he had hoped. The Washington Huskies’ head coach announced last week that he will retire at the end of the season, and his final game will be against the team that gave him his start in coaching. Washington will face the Boise State Broncos in the Las Vegas Bowl, and his Huskies are short favorites per the college football betting odds despite finishing the regular season 7-5. Petersen has been one of the best coaches in the country for the last 15 years. He led Boise State to a 92-12 record and two Fiesta Bowl victories in eight seasons, and he was 54-26 with two Pac 12 titles and bowl appearances in all six of his seasons with Washington. As one of the most respected figures in the game, he will be missed. The Huskies are in great shape with Jimmy Lake taking the reins in Seattle though.

Las Vegas Bowl Odds

Washington Huskies -3.5

Boise State Broncos +3.5

Total 50

Washington won at least 10 games each season from 2016 to 2018 and claimed the Pac 12 North title in each of those three years. The Huskies were one of the preseason favorites to win the conference once again after that track record, but the loss of so many great players over the last few years finally caught up with the team.

Jacob Eason lived up to expectations though. Eason completed 63.8 percent of his passes for over 2,900 yards with 22 touchdowns and eight interceptions. A good pass blacking offensive line kept Eason upright and only allowed him to be sacked 18 times, and he nearly led the Huskies to upsets over Oregon and Utah.

His best targets this season have been tight end Hunter Bryant and wide receiver Aaron Fuller. Bryant leads the team with 52 receptions for 825 yards and three touchdowns, while Fuller has 54 receptions for 673 yards and six scores.

Salvon Ahmed reached the 1,000-yard plateau against Washington State in the Apple Cup, and he is averaging 5.5 YPC. Ahmed will be out to continue his good form of late against Boise State, but the Broncos are allowing just 3.6 YPC.

Boise State’s defense is No. 48 in the country per SP+, but the Broncos gave up a ton of yards to the lone Power Five team it faced, and the Mountain West is down this season.

Jaylon Henderson was the third quarterback to start for Boise State this season, and the senior has shined over the last four games. He has completed 63.2 percent of his passes for 1,032 yards with 11 touchdowns and two interceptions, and he has avoided the mistakes that plagued Hank Bachmeier and Chase Cord.

Henderson is a very mobile quarterback too, leading to Bryan Harsin continuing to start Henderson although Cord and Bachmeier are healthy. He is averaging 5.2 YPC if you discount sack yardage, and he makes a run game averaging 4.5 YPC more potent.

John Hightower is the one player that Washington must account for at all time. Hightower is a speedy receiver that can break off big plays as a running back or a receiver, and he is averaging 10.5 yards per carry and 19.2 yards per catch. He is responsible for 1,070 yards and eight touchdowns off 62 touches, so he will be the X-Factor for Boise State.

Washington has the No. 27 defense in the country per SP+, but the Huskies had some surprising problems stopping the run this year. Lake will need to address those among the other things he’s doing in preparation for the Las Vegas Bowl.

Regular Season Recap

Washington ended the season as the best 7-5 team in the country per SP+. Each of the Huskies’ five losses were by 10 points or less, while all seven of their wins were by at least 12 points. That run of bad luck in close games is unsustainable long term, and that should lead to a turnaround for Lake’s team in 2020.

The Huskies lost their home opener to California despite being an almost two-touchdown favorite. This game was weird as it was delayed because of thunderstorms for nearly 2 ½ hours, and Washington appeared flat when it returned to the field.

This team responded well after the defeat though, winning its next three games with ease over Hawaii, BYU, and USC. However, Washington was upset once again, falling on the road to Stanford as a favorite to take the Huskies out of playoff contention in early October.

From there, Washington lost heartbreakers against Oregon and Utah at home. The Huskies had a decent chance to win both games against the Pac 12 Championship Game participants, but it wasn’t meant to be for this year’s team.

Petersen was able to keep Washington’s winning streak in the Apple Cup alive though. The Huskies dominated Washington State for the seventh straight season, holding the Cougars to 17 points or less each time in that stretch. All seven of those wins have come by double digits too, making the alumni proud.
