Washington State has lost three straight games, but that will end this week, at least if the oddsmakers are correct.

Oddshark’s consensus odds currently have the Cougars as a 13.5-point favorite.

That’s the good news. The bad news is the Cougars are 0-5 against the spread in their last five games. Hopefully if that trend continues it’s because the Cougars won by 11 points. Not because of a four-game losing streak.

The point total is the second-highest for any WSU game this season, trailing only the matchup against Houston. And if you’re looking for a very random and mostly meaningless stat, according to Oddshark the over has hit in nine of WSU’s last 11 Week 8 games. So if you were curious of how Week 8 of 2008 might impact this week, there you go.

A win and a cover would be a nice change of pace. Let’s do that.
