Hawaii is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 neutral site games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games. The over is 6-1 in Hawaii’s last 7 neutral site games. Cal State Fullerton is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss and 33-16-2 ATS in their last 51 games. The over is 4-0 in Cal State Fullerton’s last 4 games. 


Cal State Fullerton finished one spot ahead of Hawaii in the Big West standings, but they played two fewer games during the conference schedule. Cal State Fullerton has won six games in a row and they defeated Hawaii twice in the regular season. Hawaii has been very good on the defensive end of the court, only allowing 61.8 points against per game. I really like how Cal State Fullerton finished the season and I like them here.
