Why Bet On Hawaii?
There are a handful of good reasons to back Hawaii in this contest. First, the Rainbow Warriors have the more potent offense in putting up 37.0 points per game to Boise State’s 32.6 points per contest. Then, there’s the fact that the Rainbow Warriors have some momentum, having won two straight, including an emphatic 54-3 smackdown of Nevada the last time out. Last but not least, Hawaii is well-rested after getting a bye last weekend.
“Everybody needs to get over the fact that it is Boise State,” Rainbow Warriors coach Nick Rolovich said. “This aura that they have earned is a weapon for them.”

Why Bet On Boise State?
There are also a bunch of good reasons to back the Broncos in this contest starting with the fact that Boise State has recorded three straight double-digit victories including a 38-13 win over UNLV last weekend as 25-point road favorite. Then, there’s the fact that Hawaii has an elite defense that limits the opposition to just 16.0 points per game to rank 16th nationally in points allowed. Last but not least, Boise State is playing at home where they are very difficult to beat on their famed blue turf.

Hawaii vs Boise State Expert Analysis and Prediction
While the favorite in this rivalry has gone a perfect 5-0 ATS in their last 5 meetings, I like Hawaii to cover the chalk with a great effort in this matchup simply because of their ability to put points on the board this season. I know the numbers suggest a win and cover for the Broncos in this matchup, I’m going with the underdog Rainbow Warriors to get the ATS cover, if not necessarily the outright road win.
