The Hawaii Rainbow Warriors and UNLV Rebels face off on Saturday in a Mountain West college football showdown at Allegiant Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2020, Hawaii came away with the 38-21.
The Hawaii Rainbow Warriors come into this game with a 4-6 record overall and they have lost two games in a row. Hawaii only scored 10 points in that game, but the defense gave up 17 points, and if that strong defense can continue, that will continue. Hawaii is averaging 27.3 points while their defense is giving up 32.2 points per game. Under center for Hawaii is Chevan Cordeiro and he has thrown for 1,881 yards, 11 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. Dae Dae Hunter has been the top running back rushing for 558 yards and three touchdowns.
On the other side of this matchup is the UNLV Rebels who sit with an 1-8 record overall but their win came in their last game. Against New Mexico, UNLV scored 31 points, and that was enough to come away with the victory. UNLV is averaging 20.9 points while the defense is giving up 33.9 points per game. Under center for UNLV is Cameron Frial and he has thrown for 1,369 yards, six touchdowns, and eight interceptions. The interceptions have been an issue for Frial and he is going to need to take better care of the ball.
Hawaii is 3-7 against the spread in their last ten games as a road favorite. UNLV is 2-5 against the spread in their last seven home games. The over is 4-1 in UNLV’s last five conference games. Hawaii is 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games against UNLV. The under is 4-0 in the last four meetings played between the two teams.
These offenses aren’t great this season, and both teams are going to struggle to score in this game. I especially expect UNLV is going to struggle to score and that will lead to this game low scoring. Back the under.
