Sun Bowl Prop Bets

All  Sun Bowl prop bets and odds via FanDuel Sportsbook.


Home Team (Stanford) - Over 28 Total Points (-115): Life is too short to bet the under, and you'll be rewarded with your decision on this one. The Cardinal averages 29.5 points per game and have eclipsed 28 points six times this season. This Pittsburgh defense makes matters much better as they enter this game 82nd in the nation in opponent scoring, allowing over 30 points per game. 


- Away Team (Pittsburgh) - Over 24 Total Points (-110): Sure, Pittsburgh has only scored 13 points over the last two games, but we'll forgive them since it was against the Miami Hurricanes on the road and then the Clemson Tigers in the ACC Championship Game. Before those last two games, the Panthers had scored at least 34 points four times in a span of six games. To close out the season, you'd expect these guys to open up the playbook and have some fun against a Stanford team from the left coast, playing an early afternoon game.
