2017 Las Vegas Bowl Betting Preview
The annual bowl game was originally the old California Raisin Bowl and was played in Fresno, California from 1981 to 1991. In 1992, the game reorganized and relocated to Las Vegas and was renamed the Las Vegas Bowl.
The Brigham Young Cougars made the most appearances in this bowl game’s history (6), while Utah leads all teams with four victories. BYU is tied with Boise State with the second-most victories at three apiece. The Broncos won three straight from 2010-2012 under, now Washington Cougars head coach Chris Petersen.
In last year’s Las Vegas Bowl, Houston dominated San Diego State 34-10 to cover the college football betting line as a 4.5-point underdog under former head coach and now Texas Longhorns leader Tom Herman while the game’s final score played under the 51-point total. The Cougars’ win last season snapped a three-year ATS streak in which favorites have covered the spread and two-year streak in which the Utah Utes were Vegas Bowl winners.
Favorites have won and covered the spread in seven of the last 10 La Vegas Bowl matchups while seven of those matchups were decided by double-digits. Pac-12 schools had their three-year winning streak snapped with Houston’s win last year.
The Under is 3-1 in the last four Las Vegas Bowls and 6-4 over the last 10. The Under has been the winning total wager in nine of the last 15 Las Vegas Bowl matchups overall.
