Sun Bowl Odds
Since 1935, El Paso, Texas, has hosted the Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl, another exciting college football game held in the southwest. The Sun Bowl is one of the oldest college events in the country. Only events such as the Rose Bowl, the Sugar Bowl, and Orange Bowl, come close to the history of the Sun Bowl.
The University of Texas at El Paso’s Sun Bowl Stadium hosts the game yearly, and the events have become a tradition for college football. As in most bowls, it is held during the holiday season.

Understanding How Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl Odds Work
The 2021 edition of the Sun Bowl featured the Central Michigan Chippewas and the Washington State Cougars. The Chippewas were the favorites, given their 9-4 season record. Some markets are very popular with the betting crowd, for example the Sun Bowl point spread.
For those bettors who put their money on the Chippewas to win at a -160 moneyline, for every $160 bet, an equivalent $100 profit will have been made. On the other hand, those who took a chance on the Cougars as underdogs on a +230 moneyline missed the chance to make a $230 profit for every $100 wager.
If bettors had favored the -8.5 and the over 41.5 points, they might have also taken those profits home.
