At 5-0, Jay Norvell’s Nevada Wolfpack finds themselves at the top of the Mountain West Conference standings and with just a few weeks left in the regular season, and they’ll look to fortify their position when traveling to the islands to meet the Hawaii Warriors.

The streaking Wolfpack did just enough to remain undefeated last Saturday, staving off San Diego State for a 26-21 victory. Defensively, Nevada shutout the Aztecs in the second half, holding SDSU for a red zone stop in the final minute. Nevada’s defense is currently ranked 39th in defensive SP+, limiting teams from moving the ball through the air with a ranking of 10th in defensive passing success rate.

The Warriors fell into a hole midway through their game against Boise State last week, ultimately falling 40-32 to the Broncos. Quarterback Chevan Cordeiro tried to rally his team back with a pair of fourth quarter touchdowns to cut into the deficit, ultimately coming up short. Todd Graham’s squad is now trying to avoid their third straight loss.

Point Spread, Totals, Odds, Trends

Point Total: 60.5
Money line: Nevada (-245) vs. Hawai’i (+195)

  • Each of the last seven games between Nevada and Hawai’i have gone UNDER the total points line.
  • Hawai’i has failed to cover the spread in seven of its last eight November games as a home underdog.
  • Hawaii covered as a two-point underdog in last year’s matchup between the two schools. The UNDER of 63.5 hit in a 54-3 Hawaii blowout win.

The Best Bet

With respect to Nevada QB Carson Strong and receiver Romeo Doubs, the strength of the Wolfpack has been in their ability to stifle teams through the air.

Expect their defense to give Cordeiro fits and keep the overall point total of this matchup low.

Pick: Under 60.5
