    What a great opportunity to end the day with a big moneyline underdog!

    Hawaii is hosting Army for the late night special and this couldn't be a worse situational spot for the Rainbows.

    They've already clinched a spot in the Mountain West title game after beating San Diego State last week so they already know they'll be taking on Boise State. Exactly how much focus is Hawaii going to have on Army already knowing what lies ahead for them next week?

    You also have an Army team that is coming off a bye and runs the ultimate equalizer on offense. The Triple Option. This is not something the Rainbows are use to seeing or defending and I don't know how focused they'll be in prepping for it. Army has had a disappointing year but still has the possiblity of a bowl game in its future. 

    You also have a situation where Hawaii is awful at stopping the run. They rank 125th in the nation by allowing 5.6 yards per carry. They already got blown out by anothere triple option team this year in Air Force. That game was home as well. 

    Plus, you never know if Hawaii may also even decide to sit some guys in advance of that showdown with Boise State next week.

    And if you need more convincing that there is just too much value with backing Army, how about the weather.

    The forecast also calls for heavy winds which won’t bother Army one bit but could limit the Hawaii passing attack.

    Army is the last team you want to play when potentially not fully focused. Hawaii can be sloppy with the ball and in the penalty department and I think those two areas will stall enough of its limited number of drives for Army to pull out this win on the island.

    Give me Army as an ML underdog. I'm also taking Army and the points and will back the UNDER in this game as well.
