WASH­ING­TON over Fresno St by 37

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

The Bull­dogs waltzed away with the money at Alabama last week when they caught the Tide in clas­sic let­down mode fol­low­ing Bama’s sea­sonopen­ing win over Florida State. How else can you ex­plain Fresno putting up dou­ble-dig­its – which was more than the Semi­noles – against a Tide stop-unit that is stingier than a Tiger Woods’ tip at a Denny’s? How­ever, af­ter strug­gling with their only FBS foe to date (Rut­gers), don’t ex­pect the Huskies to be as ac­com­mo­dat­ing. Our gen­er­ous data­base agrees, not­ing: Wash­ing­ton is 3-0 ATS in Game Three and 4-1 ATS in their last five ver­sus the Moun­tain West while the Bull­dogs are in Game Three and 2-8 ATS in their last dozen against Pac-12 op­po­si­tion. Yes, it’s hard to be­lieve but we ac­tu­ally rec­om­mend lay­ing al­most five touch­downs tonight in Seattle (then again, we’re do­ing it with a team who scored 41 or more points 10 times last sea­son!). Petersen names the score.
