Liberty Bowl Odds - Kansas vs. Arkansas

2022 Liberty Bowl NCAA Football Betting

Arkansas just barely made the cut for a bowl game after a 6-6 season. Quarterback KJ Jefferson’s injuries limited the Hogs’ offensive production, though they were able to grab wins over Ole Miss and Cincinnati. They defeated Penn State 24-10 in the Outback Bowl on New Year’s Day of 2022. This will mark the program’s 44th bowl appearance and the team’s second in a row. Kansas started their season with a 5-0 opening win streak but managed to win just a single game since then, ending 6-6 and qualifying for their first bowl game in over a decade. The Jayhawks will be participating in their 13th bowl game, the first since 2008, when they defeated Minnesota 42-21 in the Insight Bowl.

Arkansas has the most appearances in this game with six but owns a losing record at 2-4. The Ole Miss Rebels have captured the most Liberty Bowl victories, winning all four postseason visits to Memphis.

The 'under' has hit in three consecutive Liberty Bowls, capped off by Navy’s 20-17 triumph over Kansas State in 2019 while snapping a three-game winning streak by underdogs in this game. With a reduced capacity due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, West Virginia edged Army 24-21 as the underdog cashed. The 'over' also connected. On Dec. 28, 2021, Mississippi State of the SEC was matched up with Texas Tech of the Big 12. It was head coach Mike Leach's current team, the Bulldogs, against his former team, the Red Raiders. Texas Tech was a 10-point underdog, cashing easily on the money line at +300 with a 38-7 win as the 'under' cashed. The underdog is now 5-1 ATS across the past six Liberty Bowls.

In 2020, West Virginia scored a 24-21 upset of the Army as the Mountaineers' defense was able to contain the Army option. TJ Simmons caught two touchdown passes for the Mounties to earn MVP honors. Army is a respected program that went on to bigger things in 2021.

In 2019 the Navy Midshipmen concluded one of the greatest seasons in program history with their win over the Kansas State Wildcats. With the win, Navy posted a final record of 10-2 and ranking of 21st in the country. The Midshipmen concluded a tremendous turnaround campaign that followed a 3-10 season in 2018. Navy quarterback Malcolm Perry was named Most Valuable Player after rushing for 213 yards. A crowd of 50,515 was in attendance, and the payout was $4.7 million.

There have been some big names that have won the MVP Award in past Liberty Bowl games. Among them are Dak Prescott, Shaun King, Bo Jackson, Doug Flutie, and Ricky Bell.

3 Tennessee 1971, 1974, 1986
