The Hawaii Warriors and the UC-Riverside Highlanders meet in college basketball action from the SRC Arena on Saturday. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


UC-Riverside is listed as a 3-point favorite for this game with a -145 ML price while the total for this game is set at 131.5 points.


Hawaii hasn’t announced any new injuries since the start of the season while UC-Riverside’s injury report is clean as well so barring any last-minute announcements, both teams will come in at full strength.

Matchup history

Hawaii won the last matchup between these two teams back on March 10th, 2022, making it four straight wins by the home team in this head-to-head matchup.


Hawaii is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS loss and 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games against a team with a winning home record while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a loss. UC-Riverside is 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games while the over is 9-2 in their last 11 home games.


I’m backing UC-Riverside here. Hawaii is a solid team, but they look to be a bit of a different team when you take them off of the island and UC-Riverside is still a solid team at home and home court has mattered in this matchup with the home team winning the last four meetings and covering in each of the last three. I think this one will be tight but I look for UC-Riverside to pull away late for the win and cover.
