15* on Notre Dame/Hawaii OVER 48.5

Yes Notre Dame’s offense has looked like puke at times this season, but they did score 20 of more points every time they played a team that didn’t have a top tier defense.  Hawaii’s offense has played strong here lately as well, scoring 24 or more points in each of their last four games.  Hawaii is 8-0 OVER (+8.0 Units) as a home underdog of 7 points or less since 1992 and 15-5 OVER (+9.5 Units) versus poor rushing teams – averaging <=120 rushing yards/game since 1992.
