The Rainbow Warriors are 10-28-1 ATS in their last 39 games in October and 18-40 ATS vs. a team with a losing record. The Aztecs are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games in October and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 9-4 in Rainbow Warriors last 13 road games. The under is 35-17-1 in Aztecs last 53 games overall. The Rainbow Warriors are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in San Diego State and 2-6-2 ATS in their last 10 meetings.
The Hawaii Rainbow Warriors haven’t done anything well on either side of the ball, and they’ve been fairly uncompetitive outside of their win over Duquesne. The San Diego State Aztecs have issues of their own, but they’re still physical in the trenches, they run the ball well, and they can string together a strop or two on defense at times. Hawaii has shown no signs of life through 4 games against FBS competition. Oddsmakers are telling you what they think of Hawaii with this line. Give me the Aztecs in a much-needed home beat down.
