*Odds as of Friday morning

Friday’s Washington vs. UCLA college football Week 5 matchup should be a good one.

The Pac-12 rivals both sit at 4-0 on the season and the team that wins tonight’s matchup can really position itself for a run at the conference title.

As one would expect, the latest college football odds suggest a very competitive game as Washington is a 3-point favorite over UCLA.

According to the Action Network’s college football public betting data, the No. 15 Huskies are currently attracting 69% of the spread tickets, which isn’t all that surprising when the opponent is unranked.

So this begs the question: Is laying the points the smartest way to approach this matchup? Or should bettors jump at the chance to back an undefeated UCLA getting three points at home?

And, stay with me here, is the over/under, and not the spread, offering the most value for Washington vs. UCLA on Friday night?

Thankfully, these questions are easily answered, so let’s take a look at the Washington vs. UCLA edge that the market’s sharpest bettors are pounding ahead of Friday night’s kick off.
