Hawaii drops two straight
After a strong start to the season, Hawaii has lost back-to-back games to BYU and Nevada. The Warriors are now 6-3 on the season, 3-1 in the Mountain West, 3-5-1 against the spread and 5-4 with the over.
Like usual, Hawaii has a strong offense this year. The Warriors are putting up 34.9 points and 440.1 yards per game this year. That includes over 300 passing yards per game. Cole McDonald has thrown for 2,607 yards and 29 touchdowns with just three interceptions. He also has rushed for 270 yards and two scores. John Ursua is one of the top receivers in football right now, as he has 71 catches for 1,013 yards and 14 touchdowns. Defensively, the Warriors are struggling by allowing 32.9 points and 425.6 yards per game. They are giving up nearly 180 rushing yards per game.
Fresno State on a roll
Fresno State is on a five-game winning streak right now following a 38-7 win at New Mexico last weekend. The Bulldogs are now 6-1 on the year, 3-0 in the Mountain West, 6-1 against the spread and 4-3 with the under. Fresno has hit the under in three straight games.
The Bulldogs are dominant on defense this year, allowing just 12.6 points and 298.1 yards per game. Their pass defense is giving up 173.3 yards per game. On offense, Fresno State is putting up 38.0 points and 407.7 yards per game. Marcus McMaryion has thrown or 1,858 yards and 14 touchdowns to lead the offense while KeeSean Johnson has 46 catches for 659 yards and six touchdowns. McMaryion also has seven rushing touchdowns.
College Football Betting Trends
Hawaii has hit the under in seven of their last eight following a loss and in eight of its last 10 conference games.
Fresno State has hit the under in seven straight games in October and in 16 of its last 21 conference games.
The Fresno defense has been impressive, but it did allow 27 points at home to Toledo, so I believe the Warriors can score some points with their passing attack. The Warriors have given up at least 40 points in three of their last four games as well, so Fresno should put up a pretty nice total on the scoreboard. I would expect this game to be a late-nigh shootout and go over 60 points.
College Football Prediction: Hawaii/Fresno State Over 59
