68 Ventures Bowl betting

Southern Miss (-6.5) beat Rice in last year’s bowl game, then named the LendingTree Bowl. Frank Gore Jr. ran for a bowl-record 329 yards and two touchdowns in the 38-24 victory. The 62 combined points went over the game’s 45.5-point total. In 2021, Liberty covered as an 8.5-point favorite and nearly covered the 58.5-point total on their own.

In 2020, Georgia State covered a three-point spread, beating Western Kentucky 39-21. But before then, underdogs had covered in five straight games and in eight of the last ten – including five outright upsets. The run was needed, as underdogs failed to cover in nine straight years from 2001-09. Overall, favorites are 13-10-1 in the 68 Ventures Bowl.

Overs are 13-11 in the history of the bowl game, including 3-0 in each of the last three outings.
