Arizona Wildcats 2023

The Arizona Wildcats started their regular season with a 3-3 record before taking off. Their final two losses were by an average of 4.5 points to Washington and USC. Wins over Washington State, Oregon State, UCLA and Utah have their resume looking pretty sharp as they seek their 10th win.

Jayden de Laura and Noah Fifita have been the quarterbacks for the Wildcats. Fiftia was terrific taking over for de Laura, as he threw 23 touchdowns and 5 interceptions with more than 2,500 yards. Tetairoa McMllian was the top target in the passing game, as he went for more than 1,200 yards on the season.

The run game was anchored by Jonah Coleman. The Wildcats running back rushed 123 times for 851 yards and 5 touchdowns. DJ Williams also has four touchdowns on the season. The Wildcats Coleman is likely to play in this game, while Williams is questionable with a leg injury.


Oklahoma Sooners 2023

For Oklahoma, the Sooners will be down a couple key guys as Dillon Gabriel is out, as he transferred to Oregon and Andrel Anthony, one of the top receivers for the Sooners, is out with a leg injury.

Who is Playing in the Alamo Bowl? | Texas Longhorns vs Washington Huskies Betting Preview

Generally speaking, bowl games are played in neutral venues, meaning that no one team really has that much of a home field advantage. Sometimes, though, the stars align, and a team will end up playing what is tantamount to a home game. There are, of course, many factors that go into deciding how a game will play out, especially during bowl season when not every team is super excited to be playing what is essentially a meaningless game. The Alamo Bowl delivers a scenario like that, with the Texas Longhorns getting to play in their home state, while the Washington Huskies need to hit the road for a bit of a road trip. That is just one of the factors that has the Longhorns in as a 4-point favorite for this one, with the point total set at 67 ½. With all that in mind, let’s check out both teams and how they arrive to this Alamo Bowl game so you can bet on the College Football Bowl Odds.


Texas versus Washington Match Info & Lines | Alamo Bowl Odds

  • When: Thursday, December 29 at 9 PM EST
  • Where: Alamodome, San Antonio
  • TV: ESPN

Why bet on the Texas Longhorns

This is a bit of a transition period for the Longhorns, who, along with Oklahoma, will be moving to the SEC, not later than July 2025. They will need to be better than they have been in recent years if they want to compete in a tougher conference, but they did have a decent season in 2022, going 8-4 overall and 6-3 in conference play, which was not enough to get them into the Big 12 Conference Championship Game. The Texas Longhorns come into this one having won each of their last 4 bowl games, which includes a pair of wins at the Alamo Bowl. They were top 20 in scoring this season, averaging35 PPG, and were not bad on defense, surrendering 21 PPG. They have been money when playing teams from the PAC 12, going 6-1 ATS in their last 7 versus those teams. The OVER has hit in 4 of their last 5 overall.


Why bet on the Washington Huskies

If you are looking for a team heading into bowl season with momentum and perhaps something to prove, look no further than the Washington Huskies. They closed out the regular season with an impressive 10-2 record, but they fell just short of making it to the PAC 12 Conference Championship game, going 7-2 in conference play. All of that despite closing out the season on a 6-game win streak that included a pair of wins against ranked opponents. The Huskies have an explosive offense that averaged over 40 PPG this season, with the defense surrendering toughly 26 PPG. They have, though, struggled against the Big 12, going 1-6 SU in their last 7. The Huskies are 8-4 ATS in their last 12 games played in December, with the OVER hitting in 9 of their last 13 games overall.


Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

If we can expect anything from this game, it is probably that it is likely to turn into a bit of a shootout. After all, we have a pair of high-powered offenses set to go head-to-head, and this one could be decided by the last team to get the bal. I am all about the OVER here.

College Football Bowl | Do the Longhorns Have Enough Left to Win?

The Texas Longhorns will have a home-field advantage in the Valero Alamo Bowl. This game will be played in San Antonio, and the crowd should be full of Longhorn fans. Unfortunately for Steve Sarkisian’s squad, they’ll be missing many key players due to opt-outs and injuries. That will be good news for their opponents, the Washington Huskies, as they will be very close to full strength.

Let’s now take a look at the Alamo Bowl matchup between the Texas Longhorns and the Washington Huskies. We’ll preview both teams, and then give you our prediction on who will win the matchup, for your bets between the Big 12 and Pac-12.  

Texas Longhorns

Arguably the best running back in the nation, Bijan Robinson, has opted not to play for the Longhorns in this one. Robinson’s backup has also opted out of the game. Quinn Ewers hasn’t been as good as predicted, and many have been disappointed in his play. He has been surrounded by some very good weapons, and he hasn’t been able to take advantage of his situation. With Arch Manning set to come to Texas next season, could we be seeing the end of Ewers at Texas?

This is Ewers’ chance to shine. Washington’s pass defense gives up over 240 yards passing per game. Ewers and wide receiver Xavier Worthy will make things difficult for the poor Washington secondary. Without much of a running game left, we see Sarkisian airing the ball out against the Huskies defense.


Washington Huskies

Michael Penix Jr. is excited to be playing in his first bowl game. He has led the Washington offense all season long, and this is one of the top units in the country. The Huskies average over 520 yards of offense per game. They also average over 40 points per game. Penix threw for over 330 yards in all but four of Washington’s games this season. 

We also can’t forget to talk about Washington’s rushing attack. The Huskies are a very physical team, and when they run for over 140 yards, they’re 4-0 on the season. Washington hasn’t had turnover issues all season long, and Texas doesn’t cause many turnovers, so we look for the Huskies to try and dominate the ball.



First of all, we’ve talked about how explosive each of the team’s offenses are. The over-under in this one is 67. We’ll be shocked if this one doesn’t hit the over. With both teams having dominant offenses, and neither team having a real strong defense, we see a lot of points being scored in this one.

The Longhorns are favored to win by three points. Even though they are missing Robinson, the oddsmakers still think that Texas is the better team. We actually disagree with this assessment. With Texas missing so many key players, while Washington is basically at full strength, we think the Huskies have the advantage. We think that Michael Penix Jr. will have a huge game, and the Huskies will win this one by the score of 48-42.
