UAlbany Great Danes vs. Hawaii Rainbow Warriors 9/10/23 NCAAF Week 2 Odds, Analysis and Prediction

UAlbany Great Danes (1-1) vs. Hawaii Rainbow Warriors (0-2)

The UAlbany Great Danes, who are currently 1-1, are set to face off against the Hawai’i Rainbow Warriors, sitting at a 0-2 record, on September 10, 2023. The game will be hosted at the Clarence T.C. Ching Complex at 12:00 AM ET. For those interested in college football betting picks, this matchup offers a tantalizing opportunity to dissect the offenses and defenses of both teams.

UAlbany’s offense largely hinges on the performance of running back Nate Larkins and wide receiver Brevin Easton. Larkins has posted 108 rushing yards with 25 attempts, showcasing his capability to be a steady force on the ground, even if he hasn’t reached the end zone just yet. Easton, on the other hand, has tallied 8 receptions for 74 yards and a touchdown, making him a reliable short to mid-range target for the Great Danes.

The Hawai’i Rainbow Warriors also bring a compelling pair to the table. Running back Landon Sims, while not as heavily utilized, still manages a respectable 4.2 yards per rush on his 9 attempts. Wide receiver Pofele Ashlock has emerged as the primary target for the Warriors, amassing 241 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns, making him a deep-threat that cannot be ignored.

Reese Poffenbarger QB vs. Brayden Schager QB

Starting off with Reese Poffenbarger, the quarterback for the UAlbany Great Danes, his stats reflect an individual who has shown flashes of brilliance but has room for growth. With a completion percentage of 57.7%, he demonstrates the ability to make connections but falls short of the ideal 60% threshold that most elite quarterbacks aim for. His passing yards total at 447 over the first two games, which is fairly reasonable, but not eye-popping by any means. One striking positive in his portfolio is his 5 touchdown passes to zero interceptions. This indicates his ability to make the right reads and protect the ball, critical traits of any high-level quarterback. His longest pass is at 30 yards, which may not indicate a strong arm but does suggest a capability for accurate short to medium-range throws.

On the flip side, Hawai’i’s Brayden Schager has shown significant promise. With a completion percentage of 64.8%, he is operating above the ideal threshold, and his 706 passing yards indicate a more aggressive passing game. His 8 yards per pass attempt versus Poffenbarger’s 5.7 further bolsters this notion. Schager’s high-level play is evidenced by a passer rating of 150.1, a figure that puts him in the upper echelons of college football quarterbacks. Schager’s primary weakness, however, lies in his tendency to turn over the ball. Unlike Poffenbarger, Schager has also thrown two interceptions as well as six touchdowns; furthermore, he was sacked nine times for 59-yard losses, suggesting he prefers higher-risk plays that both offer greater rewards but carry greater risks; his longest pass of 50 yards attests to both arm strength and willingness to take risks downfield.


NCAAF Odds/Point Spread: Hawai’i Rainbow Warriors ML, Total Odds: –

UAlbany Great Danes Betting Trends

UAlbany hasn’t exactly been an attractive bettors’ option of late. Their recent performance includes being outscored 1-4 against the spread in five games and an alarming 1-7 straight up over eight. UAlbany have even posted an even worse record when on the road; their last seven road games produced no victories while in September they lost all five road matches played SU. These trends suggest betting against UAlbany could be considered risky venture.


Hawai’i Rainbow Warriors Betting Trends

Hawai’i, on the other hand, seems more promising when it comes to betting. With an 8-2 ATS record in their last 10 games, they have been consistently outperforming the spread. Although their overall performance sits at 1-7 SU in the last 8 games, they have a strong home record of 5-1 ATS. Their performance does take a hit in September, with a 1-4 SU record, and their week 2 performance is also below par at 1-4 ATS. However, their recent home game success cannot be ignored.


UAlbany Great Danes vs. Hawai’i Rainbow Warriors 9/10/23 Betting Picks
