The Warriors are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 Thursday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Gauchos are 5-11-1 ATS in their last 17 games following a ATS win and 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 home games. The Warriors are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Gauchos have been hit or miss pretty much all season long and have covered just two of their last 11 home games. I like this Hawaii team, as they get after it defensively and have some offensive playmakers. Give me the Warriors in a toss-up game.
