Alamo Bowl Betting Preview: Texas Vs Washington Odds & Prediction

Alamo Bowl Betting Preview: Texas Vs Washington Odds & Prediction

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.

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.
