Sophomore quarterback Carson Strong is the reason Nevada has become one of the most prolific passing attacks in college football. The Wolf Pack average 363.8 passing yards per game, a dramatic increase from their average of 245.5 passing yards last season. They averages 32.2 points per game, an increase from their average of 21.5 points per game from 2019. Strong has thrown for 1,805 yards and completed an impressive 70.2 percent of his passes.
The offensive surge has created some blowout scenarios, as Nevada is now 4-1 ATS. However, they may have a more difficult time covering against Hawaii (+7).
Under new head coach Todd Graham, the Hawaii offense has been far more balanced this season. The Rainbow Warriors are averaging 36.4 rushing attempts per game, an increase from the 27.7 rushing attempts they averaged a year prior. Quarterback Chevan Cordeiro is far more mobile than last season’s starting quarterback Cole McDonald. Cordeiro leads the team in rushing yards this season. However, Hawaii is off to a rough start due to their deficiencies on defense. The Rainbow Warriors have allowed at least 30 points in each of their last four games.
Bettors should expect a lot of scoring as long as the weather in Honolulu cooperates. The over cashed without much of a sweat in both of Hawaii’s home games this season. Bettors can bank on Strong putting up a ton of points against a reeling Hawaii defense.
