Guaranteed Rate Bowl

The West Virginia vs. Minnesota game is scheduled for December 28 at 8:15 p.m. at Chase Field and will be aired on ESPN.

The Guaranteed Rate Bowl is the first bowl game to be held in Arizona, taking place every December at Chase Field in Phoenix.

The Mountaineers will be competing against the Golden Gophers in an exhilarating Big 12-Big Ten matchup during this year’s competition.

Arizona sportsbooks are now allowing fans to place bets on the upcoming game. BetMGM Arizona has Minnesota at -4.5 (-110) and DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona has the Golden Gophers at -5 (-110).

Minnesota has odds of -200 for moneyline bets on BetMGM Arizona and DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona.

BetMGM Arizona has the over/under set at 44.5 total points with odds of -110, while DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona has it at 45 with the same odds of -110.

In the Valley, the Golden Gophers and Mountaineers have contrasting offensive styles despite their similar records of 8-4 and 6-6. Minnesota showcases a balanced offense, averaging 193.8 rushing yards and 166.4 passing yards per game. On the other hand, West Virginia heavily relies on their passing game, averaging 256.9 yards through the air, along with 127.9 rushing yards per game. Both teams bring excitement to the field with their unique approaches.

Both teams are entering the Guaranteed Rate Bowl with two consecutive wins. WVU secured victories against Texas (31-23) and Kansas (34-28) to become bowl eligible, while Minnesota finished the season strong with wins over Indiana (35-14) and Wisconsin (23-13).

The Las Vegas Bowl hosted by SRS Distribution

The Arizona State vs. Wisconsin game is set to be held on December 30th at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, kicking off at 8:30 p.m. Fans can catch all the action on ESPN.

After missing out on a bowl game in the shortened 2020 season due to COVID-19, the Sun Devils are back in a bowl game for the fourth time in five seasons. They will be facing off against the Badgers in Las Vegas.

BetMGM Arizona has the Badgers as 7.5-point favorites (-105) over Herm Edwards’ team.

Wisconsin is the favorite with a moneyline of -280, while ASU is the underdog at +230. The over/under for total points is set at 43.5 with odds of -105.

The Sun Devils finished the season on a high note, defeating rival Arizona 38-15 and winning three of their last four games to end with an 8-4 record. In contrast, the Badgers’ seven-game winning streak was snapped with a 23-13 loss to Minnesota, leaving them with an 8-4 record and eliminating their chance to compete for a Big Ten title.

Beware of ASU running back Rachaad White, who has already surpassed 1,000 rushing yards and is a crucial component of offensive coordinator Zak Hill’s game plan.

Braelon Allen, a freshman running back for the Badgers, is expected to be a crucial asset with his impressive stats of 1,109 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns this season.

Barstool Arizona Bowl

The Central Michigan vs. Boise State game is scheduled for December 31st at noon at Arizona Stadium. The game will not be shown on TV, but can be streamed live on

The sole bowl game in Tucson will be held at Arizona Stadium on New Year’s Eve, now featuring a partnership with a sports betting company for naming rights.

The bowl game has teamed up with Barstool Sports to promote the event, and will also be live-streamed on the Barstool website and mobile app.

In the upcoming seventh annual Arizona Bowl, the Broncos (7-5) will take on the Chippewas (8-4) in a showdown between the Mountain West Conference and Mid American Conference.

Caesars Sportsbook has Boise State as the favorite by 10 points with a -400 moneyline. The total points for the game is set at 52.5.

Keep an eye on Boise State’s junior quarterback Hank Bachmeier, who threw for 3,079 yards and 20 touchdowns during the season.

The Chippewas’ show kicks off with redshirt freshman running back Lew Nichols III, who racked up 1,710 yards and 15 touchdowns during the regular season.

Nichols and CMU coach Jim McElwain are determined to guide the Chippewas to their first bowl win in nearly a decade, since 2012.

PlayStation Fiesta Bowl

The Oklahoma State vs. Notre Dame game is scheduled for January 1st at 11 a.m. at State Farm Stadium. The game will be televised on ESPN.

This year’s Fiesta Bowl showcases teams that are just outside the top four rankings for the College Football Playoff.

The Cowboys and Fighting Irish are beginning New Year’s Day on different trajectories, with records of 11-2 and 11-1. OSU recently suffered a loss in the Big 12 title game against Baylor, while Notre Dame has won seven straight games.

Notre Dame is the favorite by 2.5 points with -115 odds at BetMGM Arizona, and by 2 points with -110 odds at DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona.

The Fighting Irish, led by new head coach Marcus Freeman in his debut game, are the favorites at -133 on BetMGM Arizona and -135 on DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona. Freeman has taken over from former coach Brian Kelly, who left for LSU.

Freeman was promoted to the defensive coordinator position for the Fighting Irish after his successful tenure in the same role at Cincinnati and Purdue. He joined Notre Dame before the 2021 season began.

Oklahoma State’s success this season was largely attributed to their strong defense, which limited opponents to 20 points or less in eight games. On the other hand, Notre Dame’s offense was highly productive, scoring an average of 35.3 points per game.
