Wyoming Cowboys @ Hawaii Rainbow Warriors (HAW -3.5, O/U 58)

The Wyoming Cowboys head to Hawaii to take on the conference-leading Rainbow Warriors. Hawaii is a 3.5-point favorite at home, but we like Wyoming to cover the spread and win outright 55.6 percent of the time. Linebacker suggests a wager of $175 on Wyoming +3.5 for a $100 average bettor.

Why will Wyoming cover the spread?

  • Two different styles clash Saturday in Honolulu. The Cowboys enter ranked 120th of 130 teams in plays per game (63.8), while Hawaii operates a high-flying passing attack. The Rainbow Warriors average 200 more yards and 24 more points per game this season than the Cowboys, so Wyoming will be focused on controlling the pace and keeping the game low-scoring.
  • Hawaii’s offensive numbers should be taken with a grain of salt, as it’s faced the 120th-most difficult schedule through six games.
  • Wyoming running back Nico Evans has 420 yards and four TDs on just 54 carries (7.8 ypc) this season. Evans’ 7.8 yards per carry would rank fifth among FBS running backs had he not missed two games due to injury.
  • Hawaii’s run defense has struggled, ranking 69th in FBS with 159.2 rushing yards allowed per game.
  • Running the ball effectively will be crucial in keeping the Rainbow Warriors offense on the sidelines. Hawaii quarterback Cole McDonald leads the FBS with 2,100 passing yards and is completing throws at a 65 percent clip.

Wyoming @ Hawaii: How to bet the total

With a projected final score of 25.8-24.8, Linebacker predicts this game will go UNDER the current total of 58. We believe Nico Evans and the Wyoming running attack can keep Hawaii’s prolific passing offense on the sideline, causing the game to slow down and be lower-scoring. Linebacker suggests a $78 wager on the UNDER 58 for a $100 bettor.
