Bet on NCAAFCollege football odds players have a special Wednesday night college football betting special from the WAC as Louisiana Tech hosts Hawaii. College football odds handicappers have gotten good college football betting value out of Hawaii so far while Louisiana Tech has been in the red.
The Hawaii Rainbows are 2-1 straight up and 2-0 against the college football odds. Hawaii lost at UNLV in their last college football betting matchup on September 19, 33-34 as 7-point dogs. A major online betting concern regarding Hawaii’s chances against the college football odds this year was their defense as it returned only 2 starters to a unit that was suspect to begin with.
So far this year against the college football odds, Hawaii ranks 72nd nationally for points allowed and 87th in total yards allowed. As would be expected the Warriors continue to have one of the most potent passing attacks anywhere against the college football odds as they rank 2nd in pass yards.
Quarterback Greg Alexander has thrown for 1222 yards with 9 touchdowns and 2 interceptions so far this season. Alexander has two excellent receivers in Greg Salas and Rodney Bradley. Salas has 20 catches for a 23.9 yards per catch average and 4 touchdowns while Bradley has 18 catches for a 21.2 yards per catch average and 4 touchdowns. Hawaii has gone over the total in both of their lined games against the college football odds.
Louisiana Tech has a record of 1-2 both straight up and against the college football odds. The Bulldogs have gone over the college football odds total in 2 out of those first 3 games. Tech has faired poorly on both sides of the line ranking 76th in scoring and an even worse 85th in points allowed. After losing at Auburn and at Navy the Bulldogs won their home opener last week 48-13 over Nicholls state as 27.5-point chalks.
Quarterback Ross Jenkins was the star with 357 yards passing and 2 touchdowns. The start to the season has been disappointing for head coach Derek Dooley has Tech was an 8-5 bowl team last year with 9 starters returning on offense including Jenkins and 7 starters returning on defense.
