Betting on the Washington State Cougars
- Regular Season Record: 7-5
- Spread: -3
- Moneyline: -165
- Over/Under: 53
The Cougars are the PAC 12 representatives, and while they did well during the season, they are not the best in that conference. In fact, two of their last games ended in losses (21-17 to Utah Utes and 51-33 to Washington Huskies).
If we review their numbers, we find that they average 27.8 points scored per game, and 22.4 allowed on average. They also total 375.8 yards; with 263.6 per pass and 112.3 per ground on average, while in yards allowed they are averaging 394.1 per game so far (266.7 per pass and 127.4 per ground).
Betting on the Fresno State Bulldogs
- Regular Season Record: 9-4
- Spread: +3
- Moneyline: +140
- Over/Under: 53
For their part, the Bulldogs are having a good season thanks to a 9-4 record. In fact, they have won the last five games, with the most recent win coming against the Bose State Broncos as a 28-16 visitor.
This is a team to which they convert very little. For example, their last but one win was at home against Wyoming Cowboys by 30-0, so they have an average of 20.5 points allowed per game; while the average of points scored reaches 30.7 per game.
In terms of yards, the team totals 395.1 on offense, with 269.8 yards per pass and 125.2 on the ground on average, while yards allowed total 351.1, with 193.3 through the air and 157.8 on the ground.
It will be a very interesting match because it will be an offensive team against a very effective defensive team. At JefeBet we believe that the winner of the Jimmy Kimmel LA Bowl will be Washington State Cougars.
Prediction: Washington State wins and covers the spread.
