Las Vegas Bowl betting
Last year, Wisconsin filled the shoes of a vacant SEC berth to play Arizona State of the Pac-12. The Badgers were seven-point favorites, a number that pushed when Wisconsin won 20-13. Even a conservative 42-point over/under wasn’t low enough and the point total went under.
Freshman running back Braelon Allen took 29 carries for 159 yards, but he was unable to find pay dirt in the game. Arizona State’s Jayden Daniels picked up 199 total yards in his final game as a Sun Devil before transferring to LSU in the offseason. Kickers were the one doing the literal leg work in this game, with four of them being netted between the two teams.
This bowl hasn’t been kind to underdogs lately, as favorites covered nine of the last 12 outings. The last two underdogs to cover– Boise State in 2017 and San Diego State in 2016– also won outright in convincing fashion. Three straight unders have also cashed, with the game not being played in 2020.
The Las Vegas Bowl has been predominantly a matchup between the Pac-12 and Mountain West. For the first five years of the bowl, it was between the MAC and the Big West until the Big West stopped sponsoring football in 2000. BYU has the most appearances with six, where they’ve covered the spread three times.
Below are historical results of the Las Vegas Bowl.
