2022 Jimmy Kimmel LA Bowl Odds
The Jimmy Kimmel LA Bowl is another Southern California NCAA Division I College football main event featuring top collegiate football action. This year’s edition of the bowl is set to kick off on December 17 at 03:30 PM ET, at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
Last Year's Betting Odds
The 2021 edition of the Jimmy Kimmel LA Bowl featured Utah State and Oregon State. Given Oregon’s position, they were the favorite over Utah and the team’s lack of solid numbers throughout the season.
Moneylines were thus leaning in favor of the Beavers. Set at -300, bettors had to wager $300 to make a $100 profit. Conversely, if bettors had wagered on the Aggies as an underdog at +240 odds, they would have nailed a $240 profit on every $100 wager.
Point spreads were set at -6.5 for a total of 68 points. That means those who bet against the spread and on the under for the game could have made a juicy profit. Those who also favored the underdog recorded some solid earnings.

But, as the score shows, the Jimmy Kimmel LA Bowl seems well on its way to becoming a major event with more big rivalries to come in the future.
