Why Bet On Hawaii at +21.5?
After upsetting Arizona in their regular season opener two weeks ago, Hawaii improved to 2-0 on the season by getting past Oregon State 31-28 last weekend as quarterback Cole McDonald completed 30 of 52 passes for 421 yards with four touchdowns and one interception. The Warriors also showed up defensively by limiting Oregon State to just 169 passing yards, though they did allow a whopping 263 rushing yards and three rushing TDs to the Beavers.

Why Bet On Washington at -21.5?
One week after smacking Eastern Washington around in their opener, Washington fell to Cal 20-19 in a big upset that saw the Pac-12 title hopefuls fail to cover the chalk as a 13.5-point home favorite. Quarterback Jacob Eason had a miserable game by completing just 18 of 30 passes for 162 yards with one interception and no touchdowns to negate a fine performance from running back Salvon Ahmed who rushed for 119 yards and a score on 21 carries in the loss.

Expert Analysis and Prediction for Hawaii vs Washington
While Washington let me down in a big way and quarterback Jacob Eason looked nothing like the former five-star recruit he once was, I am going to back Washington to take care of business at home to get the straight-up victory. However, when it comes to cover the chalk as a three-touchdown favorite, I don’t see it happening for Chris Petersen’s team after their weaknesses were revealed a week ago.
Not only can Hawaii put points on the board in a hurry, but the Warriors are also an encouraging 12-4 ATS in their last 16 games against teams from the Pac-12. With Washington going an uninspiring 3-8 ATS in their last 11 non-conference games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up loss, I say take Hawaii and the points to get the ATS win in this one!
Pick: Hawaii +21.5
