Hawai'i Bowl Middle Tennessee vs San Diego State Prediction and Odds 2022
Our Hawai'i Bowl prediction is from The Duel's official Middle Tennessee vs San Diego State betting preview.
Middle Tennessee ended the season by winning four of its final five games and has been relying on its ability to create turnovers to win close contests. The Blue Raiders are tied for fifth in the country with 2.1 turnovers forced per game and rank 10th with a turnover differential of +9. That helps them a ton.
San Diego State have been hot as of late, too, winning five of its last seven games. The Aztecs have relied solely on their standout defense to emerge victorious. They average just 19.8 points per game (No. 108 in FBS), but allow only 21.4 points (No. 24 in FBS) on 335.2 yards per game (No. 23 in FBS).
San Diego State has yet to lose a game this season in which it was favored (5-0 record), so give me the Aztecs to earn their third straight bowl game victory.
