The Rainbow Warriors are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in November and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Spartans are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Under is 7-3-1 in the Rainbow Warriors’ last 11 games overall. The over is 3-0-1 in Spartan’s last 4 games overall. The Rainbow Warriors are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 matches. The road team is 7-2 ATS in the last 9 matches.

The San Jose State Spartans have played their best ball at home this season, but I don’t trust them to win games comfortably given that they’re ranked 99th overall on offense and 74th on offense. The Hawaii Rainbow Warriors clearly underperform on both sides of the ball and are their worst on the street, but they’ve competed all season. In fact, 4 of Hawaii’s last 5 losses have been decided by 7 points or fewer. Hawaii finds ways to hang out. That’s all we need here. Give me the Rainbow Warriors and the points.

Randy Chambers’ free choice:

Hawaii Rainbow Warriors +13.5
