Cardell Williams QB vs. Michael Penix Jr. QB

The quarterback battle in this match will likely prove critical to the outcome. Tulsa’s Cardell Williams showcased precision in his last outing, completing 13 of 14 passes for a whopping 92.9% completion rate. With 233 passing yards, 3 touchdowns, and no interceptions, his passer rating sits at an astounding 303.4. However, he was sacked twice, losing 14 yards.


Washington’s Michael Penix Jr. put on an air-show with 450 passing yards, completing 29 of 40 attempts. His completion percentage stands at 72.5%, with 5 touchdowns and no interceptions. His passer rating is at 208.3, certainly no small feat, though overshadowed by Williams’ numbers. Penix was sacked only once, resulting in a loss of 6 yards.


While Penix Jr.’s arm could stretch the field, Williams’ near-perfect accuracy could keep Tulsa’s chains moving consistently. However, Penix Jr. has shown he can rack up more yards and touchdowns, suggesting a more dynamic Huskies offense.


Odds/Point Spread: Washington Huskies +2200, Total Odds: 67.5

The odds are heavily stacked against Tulsa, with a Spread of +35.5 (-115) and a Moneyline of +2200. Washington is sitting comfortably with a Spread of -35.5 (-115) and a Moneyline of -20000. The total over-under is set at 67.5.


Tulsa Golden Hurricane Betting Trends

Tulsa’s betting trends reflect a mixed bag of performances. They are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games but notably better on the road, standing at 15-5 ATS in their last 20 away games. Betting the OVER seems reasonable with Tulsa, given that the total has gone OVER in 6 of their last 7 games played in September. Also, they have shown early-season strength with a 4-1 ATS record in their last 5 games played in week 2. However, their 1-5 SU record in their last 6 Saturday games raises concerns.


Washington Huskies Betting Trends

Washington’s trends indicate a stronger performance, especially at home. They are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games and have an impressive 8-0 SU record in their last 8 games. Betting the OVER has also paid off in 10 of their last 15 games. Their Saturday games, unlike Tulsa, have been strong, with a 7-1 SU record in their last 8 September games and a 5-0 SU record in their last 5 games at home.


Tulsa Golden Hurricane vs. Washington Huskies 9/9/23 Betting Picks

Considering all the data, including team form, key players, and betting trends, Washington Huskies are the overwhelming favorites. While Tulsa’s Cardell Williams shows promise, the strength and depth of Washington, particularly in their home games, tip the scale significantly. Michael Penix Jr.’s ability to amass big yards is likely to challenge Tulsa’s defense consistently. The Huskies’ offensive firepower and solid betting trends, especially at home, make them the clear choice to win and likely cover the spread. Even though Tulsa has strong road ATS records, the quality difference between the two teams makes it difficult to bet against Washington, particularly in Husky Stadium.
