San Jose State at Hawaii
Saturday, 9 pm PT
CRIS Opener: Hawaii -18 O/U 61
CRIS Current: Hawaii -17 O/U 61
Recommendation: Hawaii

If there's a team ever in need of a bye week, it's the San Jose State Spartans. San Jose State has played seven straight games and finally gets a break after this week's trip to Hawaii. The schedule at times has been daunting but the Spartans did open Mountain West play against three average to below average squads with two of those contests at home. They failed to put up much of a fight in any of the three. Against Utah State, SJSU was outgained by 428 yards. They allowed over 8 yards per play in a 41-13 loss to UNLV. And last week were held to 205 yards in a 27-10 home loss to Fresno State. The Spartans, who are trying to play up-tempo football, have turned the ball over 24 times and have a -9 turnover margin over their last three contests. With a bye week looming, they must first travel to face Hawaii, a team they lost to a home last season, 34-17. It’s a scenario where we could very easily see the Spartans “pack it in” if they get down early.

The Warriors haven't won a game since Week 2 but have really been up against it from a schedule perspective with three out of their last four on the road. The offense has had no trouble moving the football (6.69 yards per play) but the defense have been repeatedly gashed (1,176 yards allowed last two games). They've also dealt with various suspensions and the resignation of their offensive line coach. Saturday's game however is an ideal cure-all situation as the Warriors will have obvious advantages on both sides of the football. I look for Hawaii to jump out early in this one as the recommendation is to split your wager both first half -10 and full game -17.

Faded this team HARD ever since they blew the 20 point 1Q lead they built vs USF in the span of 6 minutes. Market was slow to adjust. I crushed USU+2,+1, E. Had a dime on unlv -7.5 and another dime at unlv -10.5. Had dime on Fresno - 12. Betonline was way off on their numbers. However, SJST found some traction last week vs Fresno after Fresno got out quick on them. Hawaii laid a huge egg in a game I thought Rolovich would have his team ready to play vs his former employer, instead the defense was egregious. I haven’t played Hawaii yet but if Rolo lights a spark then -17 is cheap. SJST had a stud white WR that Utah COULD NOT slow down until they had to double the dude but he got hurt and that offense has been even more brutal since they lost him b4 or in the USU game
