Kansas vs UNLV Bowl Betting Odds & Storylines

Spread: Kansas -12.5 (-110, )

Over/Under: 64.5 (-110 both ways, Caesars)

Moneyline: Kansas -450 (BetMGM), UNLV +370 ()

The Jayhawks won eight games and put the nation on notice with their stunning upset of Oklahoma, which kept the Sooners out of both the Big XII Championship and potentially the College Football Playoff.

KU finished 29th in the nation in points per game (33.6) and finished fourth in the Big XII. But UNLV puts up points at a prolific pace too, sitting 23rd in points per game (34.3)

Look for a high-scoring game where the Jayhawks win.

Guaranteed Rate Bowl Betting Prediction

Kansas 44, UNLV 30

The Jayhawks have survived a tough Big 12 schedule, a majority of the season spent without Jalon Daniels, and still managed to finish 8-4/

UNLV enters the Guaranteed Rate Bowl off a tough loss to Boise State and were stifled offensively. If the offense is slowed by KU, it could get ugly quickly. The Rebels were a top 40 team in scoring, but finished below Kansas in points per game.

Sometimes talent wins out, and the Jayhawks have more of it right now.
