Texas Bowl Odds and Trends
At first, it may seem surprising that the Tigers are five-point underdogs to the Wildcat. After all the Tigers play in the SEC and are one of the best football programs in the country. LSU is also 5-1 ATS in the last six bowl games and 3-1-1 ATS in the last five games that Vegas has made the Tigers underdogs. But there is a very good reason that Kansas State is favored in this game.
LSU is depleted
To make it as simple as possible, LSU does not have a lot of players in this game. They took only 39 players who were on scholarship at the start of the year to this bowl game. The Tigers will be without a single scholarship quarterback for this game. LSU will look to walk-on quarterbacks to fill the role and may even use wide receivers in a wildcat formation to generate offense. They will also be under the guidance of interim coach Brad Davis who is doing his best to motivate a team currently void of talent.
2022 Texas Bowl Predictions
Despite all of the issues the college football betting public is still backing LSU. This is based on name alone since nearly 60 percent of the money is coming in on the Tigers. That is a mistake. Kansas State is 39-16-2 ATS after a loss against the spread and 4-1 ATS in the last five games as a favorite. The Wildcats have a sixth-year senior at QB and boast experience and depth which will wear down the Tigers. Lay the points in the Texas Bowl as Kansas State will win and cover the spread.
