Armed Forces Bowl Baylor vs Air Force Prediction and Odds 2022
Our Armed Forces Bowl prediction is from The Duel's official Baylor vs Air Force betting preview.
Baylor might be the favorite at the Armed Forces Bowl, but Air Force shouldn't be overlooked. The Falcons have been one of the better teams on both sides of the ball. On one hand, they average the most rushing yards in the nation (312.9) and are more than capable of making big plays through the air. On the other, their defense allows the fewest total yards ( 256.4) and third-fewest points (13.3).
It's just hard to like much of Baylor has done lately, regardless of how tough its opponents have been. I don't expect the Bears' front to stop the Falcons' run attack, either, especially after the former has averaged 169.0 rushing yards against in their last three games, having just surrendered 208 to Texas.
Air Force's versatile attack should get the lead here before the run game locks things down until the final whistle.
