The Stanford Cardinal are among the best teams in the nation and they feature two of the best players in the conference in Andrew Luck and Stepfan Taylor. Combine those two along with their solid offensive line and tough defense and there is no doubt they should enter Saturday's game as heavy favorites.
This all being said, the Washington State Cougars have shown signs of life in recent games and are expecting a big home crowd for the Pac-12 matchup. A few lucky bounces and solid execution on both sides of the ball could lead to an upset victory.
For those in Las Vegas, they do not believe the Cougars have much of a chance today. According to OddsShark.com, Stanford opened as 20.5-point favorites. Other betting websites such as Bodog.com and TopBet.com have the Cardinal as high as 21-point favorites. That's quite the spread for a road team.
