2023 NCAA Bowl Game Betting Odds for Ohio-Based Universities

Let the Bowl Mania begin!

The State of Ohio is a hotbed for football, and the various postseason bowl committees have invited five Ohio Universities to represent their Ohio-based school in a postseason bowl game.

None of our Ohio universities placed a team in the FBS Playoffs. Still, the Ohio Bobcats, Miami (OH) Redhawks, Bowling Green Falcons, Ohio State Buckeyes, and Toledo Rockets won the minimum six matchups required, and each game should be fantastic.

Join me as I take a look ahead at the early betting odds for each participating Buckeye State school and maybe a free pick or two for each Ohio-based university.

The Georgia Southern Eagles finished fifth in the Sun Belt Conference but were invited because they finished 6-6-0. Eagles quarterback Davis Brin threw for the 13th-most yards in the college game, but his Georgia Southern dropped in its final four games of the season.

The Ohio Bobcats finished second in the Mid-American Conference (MAC) East standings and closed its season by winning three of their last five. The Bobcats allowed the fifth-fewest points per game in the nation and hope to end a disappointing season with a victory over Georgia Southern.

The Miami (OH) Redhawks won the MAC Title over the Toledo Rockets but are the underdog when they meet Appalachian State. The Redhawks boast the 7th-best scoring defense nationally and have covered the spread in four of their last five games.

The Appalachian State Mountaineers finished runner-up to Troy in the Sun Belt Conference. Mountaineers quarterback Joey Aguilar threw for the ninth-most passing yards nationally, and App State has covered the spread in four of their previous five matchups.

Toledo is a short favorite when they meet Wyoming. The Rockets won the MAC West but lost the MAC Championship. Still, they have a high-flying offense led by quarterback Daquan Finn and a defense allowing a tidy 20.6 points per game.

Wyoming finished fifth on the Mountain West table. Quarterback Andrew Paisley has accounted for 27 of the team’s 38 touchdowns, and his defensive group allows 22.9 points per game.
