The Stanford Cardinal are 7-point road favorites as they take a trip up to Seattle to visit the Washington Huskies at 6 p.m. PT on Thursday. Both teams were off on Saturday to provide extra rest for the short week.
The money line sits at -110, with the over/under at 49 1/2 for the important Pac-12 North match-up.
The Huskies struggled to move the ball through the first two games of the season, but finally had some offensive success against the Portland State Vikings in Week 3. That came against an FCS defense, and things should be much tougher when they face a Cardinal group that shut down the USC Trojans their last time out.
Stanford is still riding high after their upset of the Trojans, and now look like contenders in the Pac-12 North. They have been able to cope with the loss of Andrew Luck with a stifling defense and effective running game. Saturday will be the first road game for the Cardinal, so the defense must prove it can perform without the fans behind it.
