HAWAII over Rice by 21

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - Page 12 Www.playbook.com 1.800.playbook -

We sure didn’t see this com­ing but the Rain­bow War­riors have been the sur­prise of col­lege foot­ball to date, open­ing with a pair of SU wins as 17 and 13-point un­der­dogs. The good news for the Is­landers is home teams that start our 2-0 with a pair of un­der­dog wins are 9-5 ATS dat­ing back to 1980. Like we out­lined in the Mary­land game on tdoay’s card, the War­riors were one of 1,235 teams to win a CFB game SU as dou­ble-digit un­der­dogs, and they are 96-65-2 ATS as dou­ble-digit chalk the next game, in­clud­ing at home. That may be all you need to know here against a Rice squad that had to rally from 12 points down in the fourth quar­ter to edge Prairie Freakin’ View, 31-28, as a 23-point fa­vorite last week. Our con­do­lences to new Owls HC Mike Bloom­gren who looks to be in for some con­tin­ual heat in the kitchen.Yes, Rice is ‘San Jose State bad’, and with a fee­ble 6-29 SU and 14-21 ATS ef­fort in its last 35 games as a road dog, we’ll have to see a lot more out of the Owls be­fore we get in their cor­ner. Dare we say it again? Lay the points!
