College Football Betting Preview
Hawaii (3-3) at Boise State (5-0)
Friday, 8:00 pm Eastern – ESPN
SBG Global Opening Line: Boise State – 24 , Total 51
Unbeaten Boise State will look to keep their perfect record intact as they host Hawaii on Friday night. Last year Hawaii was able to defeat the Broncos for the WAC title but it is a much different Hawaii team this season without Colt Brennan and head coach June Jones. The Warriors are not without talent though. They upset Fresno State last week behind quarterback Inoke Funaki who threw two TDs and also ran for 79 yards.
“I think Inoke Funaki is outstanding,” Warriors coach Greg McMackin said. “He brings so much to the table. He creates so many problems because he’s so mobile.”
SBG Global reports that early College Football betting has the public taking Boise State at Home.
Boise State has been shutting down teams this season with a defense that ranks seventh in the nation in scoring defense, allowing an average of 11.2 points. The problem for Boise State has been on offense. They are making a lot of mistakes but so far it has not cost them any games. “Most of the mistakes we made were just mental things,” Broncos running back Ian Johnson said. “I don’t know if it was the humidity, or the food, but it seems like something got into our head. Those are some of the things that are uncharacteristic of Boise State and we are going to go work on that so those things won’t happen again.”
