Vince Grippi’s Pac-10 picks
A break-even week usually isn’t a reason to celebrate. But when the week has results like last week’s had, break out the Diet Coke, it’s time to party.
Oregon scores 15 points. WSU wins. Stanford needs yellow-flag help. WSU wins. Those are hard things to predict.
As always, the listed line is for your entertainment purposes only. All games Saturday unless noted.
UCLA at Washington (UW by 2.5), Thursday night: It’s going to rain in Seattle. Jake Locker is going to play. Rick Neuheisel will get booed. Book them all. Now, who will win? Washington, 21-17.
Stanford at California (Stanford by 7): The Big Game has been a big bust for the Cardinal the past few years. Their Luck changes this week. Stanford, 21-17.
USC at Oregon State (USC by 3): After watching the Beavers get their tails whipped by WSU last week, the choice is easy. It’s just not what you think. OSU, 35-34.
Last week: 2-2 overall, 2-2 vs. spread; Season: 49-15 overall, 32-24 vs. spread.
