Arizona Bowl Odds - Wyoming vs. Ohio

2022 Arizona Bowl NCAA Football Betting

The Ohio Bobcats face the Wyoming Cowboys in the Arizona Bowl on Friday, December 30. The Bobcats come into this game at 9-4 SU and 9-4 ATS, while Wyoming is 7-5 SU and 6-6 ATS. Ohio went over the total in seven of their 13 games this season with five games going under, with one push, while Wyoming went over the total in 12 of their games this season with seven games going under. The Bobcats are not getting much respect, as they are just a 1-point favorite in this game despite having the better record and with Wyoming missing a number of key starters. Both teams have strong defenses so this could be a low scoring game. Oddsmakers have posted the total for the Arizona Bowl in the low 40’s.

Arizona Bowl Preview

The story for the Wyoming Cowboys is the players who will not be playing. Wyoming will be without receiver Joshua Cobbs, their leading pass catcher; defensive lineman Oluwaseyi Omotosho, who has 46 tackles and 6.5 sacks; and cornerback Cameron Stone, who has a team-high two interceptions. All three of those players have entered the transfer portal. “Every school is facing this,” Wyoming athletic director Tom Burman said to the media.

Wyoming will also be without a number of running backs. Joey Braasch entered the transfer portal while Titus Swen was kicked off the team. The Cowboys are also without Dawaiian McNeely and D.Q. James due to injuries. Redshirt freshman Jordon Vaughn, true freshman LJ Richardson and walk-on fullback Dalton Strouss are all that the Cowboys have left. Those three players combined for zero carries during the regular season.

Wyoming averaged just 20.8 points per game and put up only 315.6 yards per contest. They gave up only 23.4 points and allowed 369.5 yards per game. Titus Swen led the team with 1,039 rushing yards, Andrew Peasley threw for 1,388 yards, while Josh Cobbs had 407 receiving yards.

Ohio averaged 31.9 points per game and put up 424.5 yards per game this season. They gave up 28.4 points per game and allowed 437.4 yards per contest. Sieh Bangura led the team with 940 rushing yards, Kurtis Rourke threw for 3,256 yards, while Sam Wiglusz had 856 receiving yards.

Arizona Bowl Prediction

It is really hard to make a case for taking Wyoming with all of the players they are missing, but Ohio as a favorite holds no appeal. Neither offense is that impressive so this could be a low scoring game that goes under the total.

Arizona Bowl Format

The Arizona Bowl was founded in 2015 and has current tie ins to the Mountain West Conference and Mid-American Conference. It is one of the few bowl games not under the ESPN umbrella, and that has led to some trouble with finding a broadcast home. The game is currently broadcast by Barstool Sports. This is the second bowl game to take place in Tucson, as the city was previously home to the Copper Bowl before it moved to Phoenix.

The 2021 Arizona Bowl was cancelled. Ball State dealt MWC champion San Jose State its first loss of the season in the 2020 Arizona Bowl. The Cardinals jumped out to a 27-0 lead in the first quarter and never looked back in a 34-13 win. This was a mistake-prone game with San Jose State throwing four interceptions and Ball State fumbling twice in the win.

The only team to win the Arizona Bowl twice is Nevada. The Wolfpack won the inaugural edition of this bowl game over Colorado State, and they knocked off Arkansas State in overtime in 2018. That has helped the Mountain West Conference post a 4-2 record in the Arizona Bowl since its inception.
