Blitzalytics Analysis


Line Boise State (-13.5) Over/Under 64.5 Against the Spread - Hawaii (7-6) Boise (7-5)


Hawaii and Boise met in October. The result was a 59-37 win for the Broncos in Idaho. This game is shaping up to be much different. The Broncos will be without their starting quarterback for the fourth consecutive week. In those three games, Boise actually covered the spread twice. Hawaii has won four consecutive games after losing to Fresno. Like the first contest, this one will be played in Boise.


The Degenerate Menace Says: This will be an interesting game to discern as Boise has done well with a backup quarterback. Hawaii does have an explosive offense and was only one of two teams to score more than 35 against the Broncos. Conversely, the Warriors have allowed 30 points to an opponent eight times on defense. Boise has too much depth for Hawaii to handle in this matchup.


Prediction: Boise 42 - Hawaii 24
