UW big favorites

Another sign of UW’s turnaround is the fact that it is now an 11-point favorite against Oregon State Saturday — course, that says a little about OSU’s slump as well.
Still, it’s the largest spread favoring UW in a Pac-10 game since the 2003 season when the Huskies were a 15-point favorite at Arizona.
That one didn’t turn out so well as the Huskies lost 27-22 in a defeat that essentially knocked that team out of a bowl game.
UW was favored only three times in 2004 and only twice last year, and only once in those years against a Pac-10 team (by one against Arizona at home in 2004). This year, UW has been favored only against San Jose State. But UW has been a great bet against the spread this year, winning the last four games as well as the Oklahoma game depending on what spread you got — it hovered between 16-18 and OU won by 17.
UW failed to cover the spread against San Jose State when it was favored by 19.
