Top Week 4 college football expert predictions
One of Sallee's top Week 4 college football picks: He's backing No. 8 Washington (-21.5) to cover the three-score spread against California in a 10:30 p.m. ET Pac-12 kickoff at Husky Stadium.
Offense is the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about the Huskies. They've piled up eye-popping pass numbers as Heisman contender Michael Penix Jr. has cleared 400 yards through the air in all three games. He was 27 of 35 for 473 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in the 41-7 win over Michigan State in Week 3.
Sallee is impressed with what he's seen from that side of the ball, but he also believes Washington's defense, which is giving up just 12 points per game, is what makes this team special. "Is Cal going to be able to keep up in a track meet? Nope. Not against this defense and especially not at Husky Stadium," Sallee told SportsLine. See what other picks Sallee likes at SportsLine.

Sallee has also found two other college football picks he loves, including saying one underdog will run away late in a game where "the wrong team is favored." You can only see his picks at SportsLine.
