The Hawaii Rainbow Warriors and Nevada Wolf Pack face off on Saturday in a Mountain West college football showdown at Mackay Stadium. When these two teams faced off in November of 2020, Hawaii won 24-21.
The Hawaii Rainbow Warriors come into this game with a 3-3 record overall and they have won two games in a row. In the last game against Fresno State, Hawaii looked to be dead and out before scoring 17 points in the 4th quarter and winning 27-24. Hawaii is averaging 27.8 points while the defense is giving up 31 points per game. Under center for Hawaii is Chevan Cordeiro and he has thrown for 1,410 yards, seven touchdowns, and six interceptions. Dae Dae Hunter has rushed for 384 yards and a touchdown.
On the other side of this matchup is the Nevada Wolf Pack who sit with a 4-1 record and the only loss came against Kansas State. The most impressive win for Nevada was by ten points against Boise State. The Wolf Pack’s offense is elite scoring 36.8 points per game which is 21st in college football. Carson Strong is one of the best quarterbacks in the Mountain West throwing for 1,596 yards, 14 touchdowns, and three interceptions. Running back Toa Taua has rushed for 307 yards and two touchdowns. Nevada needs the offense to be good, but they can’t take their foot off the gas, even if they are up 10 or 14 points in the 4th quarter.
The under is 6-1 in Hawaii’s last seven road games. The over is 4-0 in Nevada’s last four games overall. The underdog is 5-0 against the spread in the last five meetings. The under is 4-0 in the last four meetings in Nevada. The under is 8-0 in the last eight meetings.
Hawaii made a late comeback in the last game, but they still struggled for three quarters, and it’s not going to get any better in this game. Nevada is going to get a strong start from Carson Strong, and Hawaii isn’t going to keep this game close. Back Nevada to win this game and cover the spread.
