Mike Leach, who enjoyed at great deal of success at Texas Tech, guided Washington State to a 3-9 record in his first season running the program. While three wins is hardly commendable, it should be noted that the Cougars tallied just nine wins between 2008 and 2011. Leach certainly has the coaching chops to get the team back on track, but most do not anticipate that happening this year. The latest 2014 BCS Championship Odds consider Washington State an afterthought's afterthought with the team drawing +200000 odds to win the national championship. The Cougars are also among the longest of shots to win the Pac 12 Championship at +10000 odds ($100 wins $10000).
The Las Vegas Hotel and Sportsbook is not high on Washington State's chances this season either. The renowned odds maker is favoring Under 4.5 wins for the Cougars at -140 odds ($140 wins $100). The LVH also has Leach's squad lined as a +12.5 and +14 against the spread dog in its two games that fell under the book's College Football Games of the Year label (Arizona State and at Washington).
