The Rainbow Warriors are 15-35-1 ATS in their last 51 conference games and 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games in November. The Aztecs are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games on grass, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Rainbow Warriors last 5 road games. The under is 55-27-1 in Aztecs last 83 games overall. The Rainbow Warriors are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings.
The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors have improved their football program over the years, are battle tested and have the offensive firepower to hang around in this contest. The issue I have is that the San Diego State Aztecs look like the team to beat this year in the MWC, should be in revenge mode after a bizarre performance last week and their defense is one of the best in college football. I question if Hawaii is strong enough in the trenches to hang with San Diego State, a club that usually plays bully ball and eventually pulls away in the second half.
I'll take the San Diego State Aztecs by double digits.
