I don't understand Texas being -4.5 favorite. I imagine that's going to come down, but UW should be like a one point favorite IMO. Penix versus our secondary is a huge mismatch, and I don't trust our ends to get sufficient pressure on him. UW's oline is underrrated.
Probably cause Ewers seems healthy.

And Penix for as good as he is seems shaky around pressure. The game comes down to whether Texas can get to him or not.

UW can get after you on the oline. Do you think we get pressure on him? It's gotta come from one of the ends. I wish we had a Colin Simmons or Joseph Ossai for this game. We just don't have that on the roster.

Penix & Co been counted out since after the 1st Oregon game. They stopped putting up the gaudy stats and video game #s so most people believe that means they took a step back instead of looking at it as they keep finding ways to win.

That being said....I don't view that as such an egregious line.

It started out at -3.5 before early money came in probably. Vegas need to get dem dollars at the end of the day so it ain't always about who they think is better. They know them bets finna come pouring in on y'all just off the brand name alone. Game closer to yall folk than it is theirs, otherwise that line prob swings the other way by 3 or 3.5 points which is basically a pick em at that point.

You right about them possibly mitigating one of y'all strengths tho. Only 20% of WAS snaps done seen pressure for the season which is kinda crazy. And in 102 pass attempts with an unclean pocket, lil breh only took like 4 sacks in dem situations. But the game is the game. U go from doing the hunting to being the hunted and the underdawg stuff go out the window. Like I said, y'all byke for real now & gotta stand on it :ufdup:

People underestimated them missing McMillan for like 8 games, he was a returning 1,000 yrd WR opposite of Odunze, you see his impact when he was there against UO second game. Odunze, McMillan and Polk when they are all on field have cooked alot of DBs.. And its not just the players that scheme is HELL on a Defense..

I think they got their receivers back healthy. Shiii they might have the better receiving core in this game, which is cray to say with Xman and AD on our side.

I'm trying to be humble, bc I feel like we're playing with house money with how this season has gone, and I got hella respect for UW's coaching staff. I think this game is a true toss up.

Texas has the highest payroll in cfb. Speed amd size everywhere. They are the more talented team than Washington.
