Hawaii at Wyoming: Three things to know

  1. Traditionally, Hawaii has had some trouble traveling from the islands to the mainland, but that wasn’t a problem last week in a 34-19 win at Fresno State. Hawaii rolled up 552 total yards with 323 on the ground, while the defense forced four turnovers (3 interceptions and a fumble) for a plus-3 ratio.
  2. Last season, the Rainbow Warriors were 3-3 SU/ATS when traveling to the contiguous 48 states, including two trips to Boise. Take the regular-season meeting and conference championship loss out against the Broncos, and the Warriors were actually decent. However, they did face bottom feeders Nevada, New Mexico and UNLV, so the jury is still out, especially in back-to-back road games. They had one back-to-back situation to the mainland last season, winning 54-3 at Nevada on Sept. 28 and then falling 59-37 at Boise State on Oct. 12.
  3. Wyoming’s star RB Xazavian Valladay was held in check last week, managing just 87 yards against Nevada in a 37-34 loss in Reno. The Cowboys did allow just 76 yards on the ground, a strength of the Warriors, but Nevada QB Carson Strong picked them apart. Nevada finished with 420 passing yards, so Hawaii QB Chevan Cordeiro could be in line for a big night.

Hawaii at Wyoming: Odds, prediction, betting lines and picks

Prediction

Hawaii 34, Wyoming 26

Money line (ML)

Wyoming (+100) stung me last week, as I expected them to hit the road and dominate in Nevada. Things changed after three plays, as starting QB Sean Chambers was carted off with a leg injury. It didn’t look good as he was unable to put any pressure on it. I normally wouldn’t trust HAWAII (-121) in back-to-back mainland trips. Major traveling and current COVID-19 restrictions would be tough for any team to handle, but the Warriors are healthy, and explosive on offense.

Against the spread (ATS)

HAWAII (-1.5, -110) is a slightly better play against the number, as you pay a little less. I suggest betting either the Hawaii ML or the ATS line. The other option is split your regular wager in half and bet both.

Over/Under (O/U)

OVER 55.5 (-110) seems like a slam-dunk play here. Hawaii has an explosive offense, and even with backup QB Levi Williams under center for the Cowboys, they’ll be able to put up some points, too.
