2022 Sugar Bowl Odds

The Sugar Bowl is another exciting annual NCAA college football bowl event. The southern city of New Orleans hosts the game in Louisiana. The Sugar Bowl is officially the second-oldest bowl event in the U.S.

The only event that precedes the Sugar Bowl is the Rose Bowl, which has been played since 1935. That is also the first year of the Orange Bowl and the Sun Bowl. This year’s edition of the Sugar Bowl is set to be played on December 31st.

Betting odds for the Sugar Bowl are now available, since the teams have already been announced. The bout between the Kansas State Wildcats and the Alabama Crimson Tide is going to really make the grade! Check out the odds above to place your bet.

Last Year's Odds

In the January edition of the 2022 Sugar Bowl, the Baylor Bears faced the Ole Miss Rebels. The Bears were well above the Rebels and were placed as the favorite.

That means those bettors who placed a $250 bet on the Bears at a -250 moneyline recorded a $100 profit. On the other hand, those who bet on the Rebels as underdogs at a +180 moneyline missed the chance to record a $180 profit for every $100 bet.

Those bettors who favored the under 43.5 and the +9.5 spread also had a chance to pick up a solid win.

Sugar Bowl Scores (Playoffs)

During the first edition of the Sugar Bowl, the Tulane Green Wave faced the Temple Owls and pulled a 20-14 win. Since then, scores have ranged up and down: some teams have finished the game with zero points, and the Florida Gators surpassed the Florida State Seminoles with a 52-20 win.

The most significant point margin ever recorded was back in 1950, when the Oklahoma Sooners beat the LSU Tigers. Scores have continually proven that a Sugar Bowl game is nothing short of one of the most competitive football events in the country.
