Hawaii went just 1-11 last season and 0-8 in the Mountain West. Norm Chow is in his third year with the team but just 4-20 in two seasons. Washington was 9-4 last season and 5-4 in the Pac-12 and brings in new coach Chris Petersen from Boise State. The home team has won the last two meetings in this series.

Trends show that Washington is 5-1 against the spread in its last 6 non-conference games, but just 5-11 ATS in its last 16 road games. Hawaii has covered the spread in its last 5 non-conference games and has hit the over in 8 of its last 9 overall games.

According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Washington is favored on the road in this game, as the Huskies have odds of -17 points against Hawaii. The over/under total has been listed at 58.5 points (View Matchup). The opening odds for this game had Washington as a 20-point favorite, but the spread quickly fell down to 16 points and hit a low of 15 before bumping up to 17. The over/under total hasn’t changed since opening at 58.5 points.

Jeff Lindquist is the starting quarterback for Washington, even if by default. Cyler Miles is suspended for the game, putting Lindquist under center. He will have a strong offensive line in front of him as all five starters return for the Huskies up front. Defensively, Washington should be strong up front as well. Six of the front seven starters are back led by Hau’oli Kikaha, who had 13 sacks at defensive end in 2013. Marcus Peters is also back at cornerback after intercepting five passes a season ago.

Hawaii was bad a year ago and probably won’t be great this year. The team has just 10 starters back and is breaking in a new quarterback and running back in the starting lineup. The offensive line has four starters back, but they didn’t produce much a year ago. Ikaika Woolsey will be the starting QB as a sophomore and he has a target in Scott Harding to work with. Harding had 56 catches for 631 yards last season. Defensively, Hawaii was near the bottom in all major categories. Three starters are back in the secondary and end Beau Yep is also back after picking up 5.5 sacks in 2013.

Bet on College Football Week 1 Odds

In terms of Injuries, Washington receiver Kasen Williams is probable despite a foot injury. Hawaii receiver Devan Stubblefield will miss the season with a knee injury.

The Public Bets are backing Washington, as the Huskies are getting 84% of the wagers with odds of -17 points against Hawaii on Saturday night.
