Wisconsin vs Oklahoma State Game Info

2022 NCAA College Football Game — Guaranteed Rate Bowl
Wisconsin Badgers (6-6) vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys (7-5)
Date: Tuesday, Dec. 27, 2022

Venue: Chase Field — Phoenix, AZ
Coverage: ESPN

The 2022 NCAA college football bowl game matchups have been revealed, including the Guaranteed Rate Bowl between the Wisconsin Badgers and Oklahoma State Cowboys.

Wisconsin enters this matchup after losing in their last outing, picking up a 23-16 loss to Minnesota on Nov. 26. Meanwhile, success has eluded Oklahoma State for quite some time now, as they lost for the fourth time in their last five outings with a 24-19 loss to West Virginia to close out the regular season.

After winning seven of its last eight bowl appearances, can Wisconsin add to that list with another victory? Or will Oklahoma State end that streak and win its sixth bowl game since 2016?

Wisconsin enters this contest as a slight favorite on the spread and moneyline. This Guaranteed Rate Bowl clash also features a total of 43.5 points, which is among the lowest of this year's bowl games.

Wisconsin vs Oklahoma State Prediction & Pick

Oklahoma State's campaign took a massive nosedive the longer the season went on. The Cowboys haven't been able to keep things close when they lose, either, with their last four losses coming by an average margin of 22.3 points. Even if you remove the 49-0 blowout loss to Wisconsin from the group, losing by 13.7 points on average still isn't anything to be proud of.

Wisconsin isn't an offensive powerhouse (25.5 PPG, No. 76), but there should be plenty of opportunities to score. Oklahoma State surrenders 31.4 points (No. 104) and 460.0 total yards (No. 121) per game while allowing opponents to hold the ball for 31:13 (No. 93).

With how bad Oklahoma State has looked lately, the Cowboys are destined to be faded. Back a more consistent Wisconsin squad getting the job done in Phoenix.

Final Score Prediction: Wisconsin: 27 | Oklahoma State: 18

Wisconsin vs Oklahoma State Best Bet

Even with Wisconsin's struggles against the spread, I still see them covering as the -3 favorite at the Guaranteed Rate Bowl. Oklahoma State boasts a putrid minus-15.2 scoring margin when away from home while being just 1-4 ATS in their last five games.

With all but one of Wisconsin's six wins coming by 4+ points, the Badgers shouldn't have any issues covering, especially with how bad the Cowboys have looked on both sides of the ball lately.

Bet: Wisconsin -3 (-105)
