College Football 2022 Bowl Game Same Game Parlay Odds, Picks & Predictions: Wednesday (12/28)

Kansas vs. Arkansas

  • Leg 1: Alternate Spread Kansas -2.5 (+135)
  • Leg 2: Under 68.5 (-110)
  • Leg 3: Kansas Team Total – Over 34.5 (+110)

Things fell apart for Kansas this season after a strong start that had them on track for one of the largest turnarounds of any team in college football. The Jayhawks started the season 5-1 but lost five of their final six games to conclude the campaign at 6-6, barely earning bowl eligibility but doing so for the first time since 2008. The season’s decline started when quarterback Jalon Daniels suffered a shoulder injury and was forced to miss all but the final two games.

With Arkansas starting the season ranked 19th in the preseason polls, expectations were high in Fayetteville. However, after winning their first three games, things fell apart as they lost six of their remaining nine games behind an offense that never lived up to expectations.

Daniels is now healthy and is anticipated to play in this game, so I expect the Jayhawks to score many points against an Arkansas defense that has given up 453.2 yards per game this year. I also expect this game to mean more for the Jayhawks, who are looking for their first bowl win since 2008. Look for Kansas to put up a high number, and for their defense to rise to the occasion as well.

Parlay Odds: +675

Oregon vs. North Carolina

  • Leg 1: North Carolina +13.5 (-110)
  • Leg 2: Total Points – Over 74.5 (-115)
  • Leg 2: Drake Maye Alternate Passing Yards – 305+ (+150)

This Oregon attack has been one of the finest in the nation this season, finishing top 15 in total offensive yards, passing yards, and points scored. On the other side of the ball, the Ducks will face a North Carolina defense that ranks in the bottom 10% in all of the aforementioned categories.

But given that offensive coordinator, Kenny Dillingham has since left for the head coaching position at Arizona State, I’m not so sure they can maintain that pace. They do have the luxury of their starting quarterback being secured for the upcoming campaign. Bo Nix, an Auburn transfer, had his career turned around by Dillingham this year, as the gunslinger led the PAC-12 in passing yards, touchdown passes, and completion percentage.

Given that quarterback Drake Maye has also declared his intention to stay on this team and play in this game, the Tar Heels ought to have a response of their own. With 317.2 passing yards per game and a national ranking of #9, this North Carolina team ought to compete with Oregon the entire way.

I anticipate a simple game plan that rushes the ball and keeps Oregon’s points lower than most anticipate without Dillingham to guide Nix. As a result, North Carolina should be able to keep pace and stay within the number.
