Doc's Sports: Take Washington to cover vs. Arizona

Josh Schonwald writes: "The Wildcats are relinquishing 16.0 points per contest, which has them sitting 23rd in D-1. Arizona has given up a total of 380 yards rushing (95.0 yards per game) as well as 3 touchdowns by way of the ground game on the year. Over the course of the season, they have allowed 64 total points. They have allowed the opposition 4 touchdowns through the air in addition to 219.3 yards/game, which puts them in 64th in the country. The Wildcats defense has taken the field for 253 plays, which ranks 42nd in college football. They have earned 3 fumbles recovered and 0 interceptions over the course of the season."

Sports Chat Place: Washington will cover against Arizona

Andrew Jett writes: "I’m going to stick with Washington. The Huskies gave up a ton of offensive production to California over the weekend but also had plenty of room to stay far ahead on the other side. Washington surrendered 502 total yards, 28 first downs and 10-of-17 on third-down tries while committing nine penalties (83 yards) as a team. The Huskies managed three interceptions though, and rolled through 529 yards (389 passing) and 23 first downs themselves. Washington has 41 or more points in every game this year, so I don’t think they’ll have any issues hanging points in this one either."

Play Picks: Washington 33, Arizona 23

It writes: "Arizona has compiled a 3-1-0 ATS record so far this season. Arizona and its opponent have not yet hit the over in 2023. The Cats have yet to play a game this season that ended with more than 67.5 combined points scored. UofA’s outings this season have a 59.5-point average over/under, 8.0 fewer points than this game’s total." Washington 45, Arizona 17

Rod Pearson writes: "Arizona has been playing well this season with a 3-1 start but they don't have the talent that Washington has as Arizona is still going through a rebuild right now. Washington is ready to win Championships though and they look like they have one of the best teams in the country this year. Arizona doesn't have the offense to keep up with Washington and their defense will be no match when trying to slow them down. The best way to place a bet here is on Washington to cover the spread in this game."

Picks and Parlays: Washington 52, Arizona 10

Cameron Ross writes: "The Washington Huskies are a top ten team and will look to continue to dominate this week. Arizona has had a good year up to this point but have yet to face the talent Washington has. Take Washington to dominate this game on both sides of the ball as they coast to another easy victory. The Huskies will continue their undefeated season with a win and cover on the road this week."
