Must Bet Bowl Games and Bold Betting Predictions

Written by on December 6, 2022

We are about 10 days away from the start of bowl season and another round of opportunities to make some money wagering on college football. That said, it can often be tough to wager on bowl games, often because players heading to the draft will sit out, while some teams don’t really see the value in playing what they might consider to be a meaningless game. While much of the focus is going to be on the New Year’s Six Bowl Games, which we will dive into in a separate piece, there are plenty more games worth your attention leading up to that group.

Let’s look at some of the more intriguing Bowl betting matchups set to come our way over the next few weeks.

NCAAF 2022 Bowls: Betting Rundown on the Games to Bet


UTSA Roadrunners Vs Troy Trojans – Duluth Trading Cure Bowl – December 16

We have a couple of conference champions, as well as ranked teams, going head-to-head in the opening day of bowl season. The Roadrunners won Conference USA, while the Troy Trojans romped to victory in the Sun Belt. These two seem to be very evenly matched, with Troy in as a slender 1-point favorite. This is one that could well deliver a lot of scoring, so I’d probably be looking at the OVER in this one, so be sure to keep an eye on that number as we get closer to game time.


Florida Gators Vs Oregon State Beavers – Las Vegas Bowl – December 17

The Gators made it into bowl season by the skin of their teeth, going 6-6 in the regular season. It was a rough year for them, but they will be looking to get something out of the season, despite heading into this one as a 9 ½ point underdog to the Beavers, who finished the year at 9-3. Florida finished the season losing 2 in a row, while the Beavers won 3 straight, so momentum is on their side. I’d be inclined to take Oregon State to cover.


Oregon Ducks Vs UNC Tar Heels – Credit Union Holiday Bowl – December 28

For a minute, the Oregon Ducks were in the playoff conversation. They started with a blowout loss to Georgia Bulldogs, but they went on a run after that, where they won 8 in a row and looked good doing it. Losses in 2 of their last 3 essentially killed their season. UNC did enough to win their division and get to the ACC Conference Championship Game, but they were blown out by Clemson. Baylor is a 10 ½ point favorite for this one and certainly have the offense to win and cover.


Texas Longhorns Vs Washington Huskies – Alamo Bowl – December 29

Another bowl game that features a pair of teams who ended the regular season in the top 25 in the national rankings. Texas is in as a 6-point favorite for this one, but they are going to have their hands full against a Washington team that ended the regular season on a 6-game winning streak to get to 10-2 on the year. Texas was very up and down all season long, which is why I think we might get a tight one here. I am on Washington to cover, and perhaps to potentially win straight up.
