On the other side of this matchup is the UC Riverside Highlanders who sit with a 13-7 record overall and they have won three games in a row. Each of the last two games even though they won, but they have failed to cover the spread. UC Riverside on the season is averaging 71 points per game while their defense is giving up 63.5 points per game. UC Riverside is shooting 45.5 percent from the field and 38 percent from behind the three point line. Forward Arinze Chidom has been the best player for UC Riverside averaging 13.5 points while shooting 49.3 percent from the field and 40 percent from behind the three point line. 

Hawaii is 1-7 against the spread in their last eight games overall. Hawaii is 1-7 against the spread in their last eight games against the Big West. Hawaii is 14-5 against the spread in their last 19 games played on Thursday. The under is 9-3-1 in UC Irvine’s last 13 games played on Thursday. 

UC Riverside is the better team but they have had issues blowing out games, and that is going to be the case again in this one. Look for Hawaii’s offense to keep this game close, and that will lead to Hawaii coming away with a cover of the spread.
