Sugar Bowl Odds - Kansas State vs. Alabama

2022 Sugar Bowl NCAA Football Betting

Alabama finished the 2022 season with two losses, a subpar year by the sky-high standards in Tuscaloosa, AL. Losses to Tennessee and LSU knocked them out of SEC Championship contention, but the Tide achieved double-digit wins for a 14th straight season. This will be Alabama’s 75th appearance in a bowl game, a mark that still leads the entire country. Kansas State is participating in its 24th bowl game and second under head coach Chris Klieman. They last beat LSU, 42-20, in the Texas Bowl on January 4, 2022. The Wildcats are fresh off toppling TCU in an overtime classic to win the Big 12 Championship.

Sugar Bowl Prediction

In this situation, Kansas State will have more motivation and less respect from the casual sector. Sharps like K-State’s value. The Kansas State Wildcats are often overlooked as a quality college football program. But that is a major mistake of gamblers. At least the casual ones that are enamored with the name brands.

Sugar Bowl Format

The Sugar Bowl started in 1935, and the matchup currently features schools from the SEC and at-large conferences. The game takes place at the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana, as the previous venue for this contest was Tulane Stadium in New Orleans from 1934-1974. This game was named the USF&G Sugar Bowl and Nokia Sugar Bowl before Allstate acquired sponsorship rights in 2007.

The Sugar Bowl is part of the College Football Playoff rotation and was part of three semifinal matchups played in 2014, 2018, and 2021.

In Jan. 2021, Ohio State roughed up Clemson 49-28 to punch their ticket to the national title game, a rare 'over' result lately in the Sugar Bowl.

In the Jan. 1, 2022, game between Baylor and Ole Miss, the Bears knocked out Rebels QB Matt Corral early and used its defense for a 21-7 low-scoring win. The 'under' is now 6-1 across the past seven Sugar Bowls.
