208 Hawaii 7.0 (-110) Pinnacle vs 207 Colorado St.
I LOVE Hawaii here.
PHONY Haw loss catching 6 @ Wyoming where they massively outstatted Wyoming, and somehow lost by 7 in OT.
CoSt looks to be massively overrated with their opponents like Or St and Co looking worse than expected. I am 100% convinced Bama played ultra Vanilla last week making CoSt looking better than they are last week.
CoSt has a bye week, however that is negated IMO by the fact CSU had to travel to Bama (EAST) last week in a tough physical game, NOW they go back to Colo for 60 degree practice, then travel WEST to Haw for 80 degrees and Humidity in a sick 9pm PST late start that massively favors a Haw team that was just playing the last game of the night LAST week.
We made the game close to pk’m and with the intangibles, I think Haw wins the game!
I’m taking the points with Northern Illinois, our Shocker Game of the Month. Scheduling lies completely in favor of the Huskies in this one. NIU had last week off after beating Nebraska in Lincoln. And if he has to go again, they’ve had one more week to get QB Daniel Santacaterina more reps with the first team — not that he’s had any issues so far, completing 38 of 56, 68% of his passes with 3 TDs and just 1 INT. The NIU signal caller also has help in the offensive backfield from RB Jordan Huff, who topped 100 yards rushing against Nebraska and is averaging 6.84 yards per carry in his 238 attempts at NIU. The defense has been fantastic against the run thus far and will face a one-dimensional SDSU offense that’s all about the run. The NIU defense ranks 19th against the run allowing just 98 yards rushing per game and they’re 26th in total yards allowed. Now the second half of the scheduling advantage. The Aztecs are off three straight physically and emotionally tough football games, beating Arizona State, Stanford, and Air Force, winning the last two games on the final score of the game. SDSU got by Stanford, scoring the game winning TD with less than 10 seconds to go, and they beat AFA with a 53-yard TD run with just over 5 minutes to go. We had SDSU last week, but we’ll go against them here. NIU wouldn’t mind exacting a little revenge for last year’s 42-28 loss. This Huskies’ version is much better than the one that started 1-6 SU last season, including the loss to the Aztecs. NIU is a true road warrior, currently on a 24-7-2 ATS run on the road. They’re 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine road games against teams with a winning home record. I’m grabbing the points with Northern Illinois, our Shocker of the Month. Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.
