Last Year's Odds

The Arkansas Razorbacks appeared as the favorite in the 2022 edition of the Outback Bowl. But, unfortunately, the Penn State Nittany Lions were well below Arkansas’ 9-4 season record with a 7-6 final mark.

That put the Razorbacks ahead with a -230 moneyline, which meant that a $230 bet on Arkansas would allow bettors to make a $100 profit. On the other hand, bettors who favored the underdogs at a +250 moneyline saw their chance of making a $250 profit on a $100 bet fade away.

In the end, the Razorbacks took a 24-10 win against the Nittany Lions. Bettors who also took a chance at putting money on the under 43.5 and the +8.5 may have also nailed a solid profit.
