Arizona Bowl

The Arizona Bowl is another top postseason NCAA college football bowl game quickly becoming a top favorite among college football fans. The event got its start in 2015, when the first edition of the bowl was officially held.

Since 2015, the Mountain West Conference and the Mid-American Conference have featured various Arizona Bowl events. The games are played at Arizona Stadium in Tucson. This year’s edition of the Arizona Bowl will be carried out on December 30 at Arizona Stadium.

Arizona Bowl Odds

The Ball State Cardinals had better odds to win the 2020 edition of the Arizona Bowl because of their full-fledged season statistics and a top-of-the-line 7-1 regular season mark. The San Jose Spartans were right there with the Cardinals thanks to their 7-1 season record, but they still came into the game as underdogs.

Those who placed a $190 wager on the Cardinals on a -190 moneyline translated to a $100 profit. On the other side, those who put a $100 bet on the Spartans at +250 odds saw their chance of making a $250 profit drift away.

Those who also bet on the over 42.5 and the +8.5 may have nailed some pretty solid profits at the 2020 Arizona Bowl.
