Military bowl

The Military Bowl game is yet another major NCAA college bowl event that started back in 2008, then as the Eaglebank Bowl. Rebranded to the Military Bowl two years later, it takes place in the Washington metropolitan area. It has become the home of an official Division I college football postseason bowl game, promoted and sponsored by the National Collegiate Athletic Association.

Before the event was transferred to the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Maryland in 2013, the game, the event, and the celebration of the Military Bowl were held at Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium in Washington, D.C. This year’s edition of the Military Bowl will be held on December 28 at 2 PM ET.

Military Bowl Odds

In the 2019 edition of the Military Bowl, the North Carolina Tar Heels faced the Temple Owls. The Tar Heels were coming as favorites, leading odds, and betting markets.

If bettors took a chance at the Tar Heels at -150 odds, they nailed a $100 profit for every $150 wager. On the other hand, if bettors took a chance at the Owls, they most likely lost the chance of making a $220 profit on +220 odds for every $100 wager.

If bettors bet on the over at 42.5 and +8.5 points, the bettor would have also recorded a solid win.

Military Bowl Scores (Playoff)

Since the first edition of the Bowl in 2008, scores have proven that the Military Bowl remains one of the most competitive NCAA events on the calendar.

Since then, and for the expectation of the 2012 edition, every single winning team has nailed at least 30 points or more.
