Army vs. Hawaii, 12/01/2019 00:30 EDT, Score: 31 - 52

Point Spread: +3/-119 Army

Sportsbook: Bookmaker

Result: Loss

Hawaii just won their biggest game of the season last week, knocking off San Diego State by a field goal which earned them their first trip to the Mountain West Championship Game next Saturday. Now late Saturday night Hawaii has to focus on Army’s tricky option scheme; a tough matchup physically, schematically and psychologically. The travel wont both Army and they should have ample crowd support with all the military in Honolulu.

This is a Hawai'i defense that gave up 56 to Air Force when it saw the option earlier this season and ranks 121st against the run on the season. Army is coming off its BYE week with extra preparation time and rest, which is even more helpful given the lengthy travel to the island. Hawai'i's strength is attacking through the air offensively, and the forecast calls for 20-25 mph winds which will make passing very tough. I like Army in this one as a small dog.
