2022 Gator Bowl Odds

Every year, the Gator Bowl Sports is hosted as an official NCAA championship game in Jacksonville, Florida. The game was initially played at Gator Bowl Stadium back in 1993, and it has been officially played since 1946.

That officially makes the Gator Bowl the sixth oldest college bowl. As an interesting fact, the Gator Bowl became the first event of its kind to air to all the country. This year’s edition of the Gator Bowl is set to be played on December 30 at 3:30 PM ET.

Betting odds for the Gator Bowl are now available, since the teams have already been announced. The bout between the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish is going to cut it!

Last Year's Odds

During the 2021 edition of the Gator Bowl, the Wake Forest Demon Deacons appeared as the favorite team to take the event by finishing the season with an 11-3 season record.

The Demon Deacons were up with a moneyline set at -150, which implied that a $150 bet on the Wake Forest would allow bettors to record a $100 profit. Those who bet on the underdogs, the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, at a +240 moneyline missed the chance to make a $240 profit for every $100 wager.

Gator Bowl Scores (Playoffs)

Given its ample history, many games and scores have been recorded at the Gator Bowl since 1946. On more than five different occasions, teams such as the Clemson Tigers, the Texas A&M Aggies, and the Air Force Falcons have all fallen short of scoring even a single point.

On the other hand, the highest score was recorded by two different teams: the Mississippi State Bulldogs in 2011 and the Aggies in 2018. Both teams finished with a total of 52 points during those editions of the event.
