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. Hawaii has failed to cover in four of its last five.

College Football Betting Trends
Fresno State is 14-2 against the spread in its last 16 games against a winning team and 9-1-1 ATS in its last 11 games in October.
Hawaii is just 1-7-1 against the spread in its last nine road games and 8-21 ATS in its last 29 against a winning team.
Hawaii has potential, but the Warriors don’t typically play well on the road and they face a Bulldogs team that is pretty good on both sides of the ball. Fresno has covered the spread in three straight against the Warriors and they have won six of the last seven in this series. Fresno has a lot of points to cover, but the Warriors aren’t covering in general. I think the Bulldogs should be able to dominate this one and cover.
College Football Prediction: Fresno State -25.5
