The Guaranteed Rate Bowl looks like it will be a nice nightcap to a solid day of college football as 8-4 Kansas squares off with 9-4 UNLV in Phoenix, Arizona. Both teams have had their most successful seasons in recent memory and whether it’s the Jayhawks (2008) or the Rebels (2000) the winner of Tuesday night’s game is going to snap a long drought for their last bowl game victory.

Before Betting on Kansas vs UNLV

Tuesday’s game features two amazing players for both teams. For Kansas it looks like star running back Devin Neal will play in the Guaranteed Rate Bowl after he had contemplated declaring for the NFL draft. That’s what a 1,209 yard rushing season with 15 TDs will do for a player.

While Kansas will try to win this game on the ground, UNLV is going to take to the air as Ricky White should see plenty of targets. White caught 82 balls for 1,384 yards during the regular season. That yardage tally was 4th best in the country and includes 140+ in four of the last six games. White has a great connection with QB Jayden Maiava who was named MWC Freshman of the Year.

2023 Guaranteed Rate Bowl Prediction & Pick

Both teams have a superstar on offense and had a four loss regular season. Things are pretty equal except the fact that Kansas had a tougher gauntlet to run playing in the Big 12 compared to the Mountain West for the Rebels. That being said, getting +13 points is way to many for a team that can move the ball through the air like the Rebels can. 

Pick: UNLV +13
