Last Year's Odds

The 2022 Duke’s Mayo Bowl listed the moneyline with the Tar Heels as the heavy favorites at -475. The Gamecocks were underdogs at +360. For a bettor to win $100 on their wager, they would have to risk $475 if picking North Carolina to win. However, a $100 bet on South Carolina would pay $360 if they won the game.

North Carolina was favored by 13 points on the spread, meaning a bet on them to win the game by 14 or more points would’ve paid the same on the spread as a wager on South Carolina to win the game or lose by 12 points/or less. NCAAF point spread betting odds are typically set at -110 for both teams.

The over/under for last year’s Duke’s Mayo Bowl was 57.5 points, which meant the combined total score between both teams would need to be 58 or higher for a wager on the over to win. A total score of 57 points or less would be required for the under to win. There was no push possible for this over/under line of 57.5.

South Carolina upset North Carolina 38-21 in the 2021 Duke’s Mayo Bowl, meaning wagers on the Gamecocks on the spread and college football moneyline were both winners. Also, the total final score of 59 points would have meant a bet on the over of more than 57.5 points would have been a winning wager.
