No. 14 Washington State is riding high after last week's win over Oregon in Pullman, Wash., but now the Cougars must brace for a difficult challenge at the turn toward November with a game at No. 24 Stanford on Saturday.
Las Vegas believes the Cougars (6-1, 3-1) have a chance as they go on the road for the fourth time this season to play the Cardinal (5-2, 3-1). Stanford opened as a 4 1/2-point favorite, but the line was down to three points headed into Tuesday.
Washington State is looking to avoid a same type of collapse as the last few seasons. Last year, the Cougars went 3-4 down the stretch after starting 6-0. In 2016, they ended the season with three straight losses after putting together an eight-game winning streak.
