Ohio vs Wyoming Prop Bets: Arizona Bowl

Bobcats Could Bust Out Offensively

The Arizona Bowl will be played on Thursday between Ohio (9-4) and Wyoming (7-5), teams that play different styles of football. The Bobcats are much more offensively oriented, having the best offense in the Mid-American Conference. The Cowboys are much more balanced, with a solid defense and an offense that has been subpar outside the running game.

Offensively, it does seem like it could be a one-sided game, with the Bobcats averaging 31.9 points compared to the Cowboys at 20.8. That does make it a little easier to bet on Ohio props because they will have more standout performances on offense and will be able to move the ball a lot easier.

Let’s check the latest college football odds, stats, injury reports, and college football lines for Ohio vs Wyoming. We’ve plenty of NCAA football odds for you to consider.

Odds: Ohio vs Wyoming Props

  • First Scoring Play Of The Game
  • Race to 20 Points
  • Winning Margin 3-Way

Ohio Opens the Scoring

Ohio has had one of the better offenses in college football, ranking in the top 40 nationally in points and yards per game. Even going up a challenging defense in Wyoming should not slow them that much.

Quarterback Kurtis Rourke has been the catalyst, throwing for 3,257 yards and 25 touchdowns for an offense averaging 285.3 yards through the air. He also has three receivers – Sam Wiglusz, Miles Cross, and Jaclyn Jones – who have all had good seasons and each their own strength.

If the Bobcats get the ball first, they should be able to march down the field and score on that opening drive. Even if they don’t, the Cowboys offense isn’t the best, which may give the Bobcats a few chances to score first.

  • Pick: First Scoring Play of the Game – Ohio TD +170

Ohio Offense Can Reach 20, Wyoming May Not

For similar reasons as Ohio scoring first, it should also be the first team to reach 20 points. Last week was the first game that the Bobcats did not score over 20 points since September, and they have regularly surpassed that in games, averaging closer to 30 points.

On the other hand, Wyoming has barely been able to score that many points. The last time the Cowboys scored at least 20 points was four games ago, only doing so six times in the season. Even though the Bobcats’ defense has not been great, allowing 28.4 points per game, the Cowboys won’t be able to keep up if this turns into a shootout. Furthermore, the Cowboys only average 127.8 passing yards, which could make it even harder for them to keep up in a high-scoring game.

Ohio has an offense that has regularly reached over 20 points, making them a good bet to do so again, while Wyoming struggles to achieve that.

  • Pick: Race to 20 Points – Ohio +120

It Should Still Be Close

This game should still be close despite the differences between the Ohio and Wyoming offenses. While there is a wide disparity between the offenses, it’s the same on the defensive end. That should even out.

It will be the strength of the Bobcats’ offense facing the Cowboys’ solid defense. A Cowboys offense that struggles to score will go up against the Bobcats’ defense, which allows teams to move the ball at will.

  • Pick: Winning Margin – Any Other Result +180
