Pac-12 picks    Christian Caple


After Week 3’s horrible showing, I’ll settle for so-so. And that’s what I was last week, going an even .500 if you combine my straight-up record (3-2) with my record against the spread (2-3). With that, we soldier on. All lines are for purposes of your choosing. All games Saturday except for the one tonight.

Stanford at Washington (tonight), Stanford by 6.5: The Huskies have been as bad against Stanford as anybody in recent years. I have a hard time believing the gap has closed all that much. Stanford 38-14.

Arizona State at California, Cal by 2.5: ASU looked too good last week to pick the Bears here. ASU 31-24.

UCLA at Colorado, UCLA by 20.5: Buffaloes looked great for about 8 minutes last week. That won’t be nearly enough against the Bruins. UCLA 45-10.

Oregon State at Arizona, Arizona by 3: Call it a third-straight upset for the Beavers. OSU 24-21.

Oregon at Washington State, Oregon by 29: Most think it will be ugly, but WSU has a knack for hanging around Oregon. Ducks still should win comfortably. Oregon 45-21.

Last week: 3-2 straight up, 2-3 against the spread. Season: 29-9, 11-18 ATS.
