Free NCAAF Pick:

Hawaii Rainbow Warriors +17.5

In the game here neither team has really showed up big on the defensive side of the ball and that will make it very difficult to see this game not be a high scoring game. However, the Bruins are coming in with the better scoring offense and playing at home against a Hawaii team that has to travel quite a ways and that tips the game towards the UCLA Bruins to win. Final Score Prediction, UCLA Bruins win but fail to cover 42-27.
