Week 3 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a showdown between the No. 11 Michigan State Spartans and Washington Huskies. The Spartans are hot following their 52-0 win over Akron last week. Michigan State's defense held the Zips to only 225 total yards while forcing four turnovers.

The Huskies also saw a lopsided victory in Week 2, scoring a 52-6 victory against the Portland State Vikings. Several players played key roles in the win, including wide receiver Jalen McMillan and his 127 yards and touchdown on four receptions.

Michigan State vs Washington Prediction & Pick

The upcoming matchup will be both Michigan State and Washington's first look at some real competition this season. The Spartans could be in trouble as the underdog since they're 2-11 against the spread (ATS) in their last 13 games against Pac-12 schools.

Having said that, Washington does look refreshed with Kalen DeBoer behind the bench. Huskies quarterback Michael Penix Jr. has performed well and his four years of playing in the Big Ten with Indiana should give him an edge against the Spartans' defense.

It'll be a close one like the odds imply, but I'm taking Washington at home.

Final Score Prediction: Washington: 28 | Michigan State: 23

Michigan State vs Washington Best Bet

All NCAAF betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Both schools' defenses have played well this season, making it interesting to see how the offenses perform. I predict that this game will be decided by the defenses, making it a low-scoring affair. Besides, neither team is a stranger to hitting the under as the above trends show.

Bet: Under 56.5 Points (-110)
