Cougars 10.5-point favorite

Here’s the first betting line I could find on the Apple Cup and it has the Cougars as 10.5-point favorites for Saturday’s game.
Believe it or not, it’s the sixth straight year that the Cougars have been favored to beat the Huskies (yes, WSU was favored in 2001, 2002 and 2003, all seasons the Cougars won 10 games, as well as the last two years).
This year’s spread is not the largest WSU has been favored during that time, however. The Cougars were 12-point favorites in 2004 when UW rolled into Pullman 1-9.
The Huskies are 4-1 against the spread the last five years against WSU, however, winning outright in 2001, 2002 and 2003 and covering in 2004, so maybe this is a good omen for Washington.
As you can see here, UW is 5-5-1 against the spread this year, losing the last three.
