Cal State Bakersfield vs Hawaii Betting Prediction

Hawaii comes into this game looking for their 11th conference win of the season and they have won three of their last four games. The Rainbow Warriors are scoring over 72 points per game and they are shooting 45.8% from the field. Cal State Bakersfield is on a three game winning streak, but they are only 8-11 in conference play and they are near the bottom of the standings. Hawaii won the first meeting between these teams by a score of 78-67, but I think we are going to see a lower scoring game here. Bakersfield has allowed 57 points or fewer in three straight games and I think that defensive play will continue. Take the under.
