Betting lines aren’t posted on VegasInsider.com yet — that’s our go-to source for these things — but as a few folks have noted, a handful of sports books have installed Washington as a 14.5-point favorite over Washington State in Friday’s Apple Cup.

At first glance, that might seem a little steep, considering UW has been a little up-and-down and the Cougars are coming off back-to-back wins. Then again, the Huskies did just score 69 points on the road against a team with six wins, and betting lines are more about trying to rake in action on both sides than they are about predicting a final margin of victory.

Another interesting note: the Golden Nugget sports book released a handful of lines way back in June, and their spread for this game more than four months ago– 14 points — is almost identical to what you’re seeing now.
