Alamo Bowl: Washington vs. Texas Odds, Picks, Predictions

Alamo Bowl Washington vs. Texas

The Alamo Bowl occurs yearly in the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. This year, we have Washington taking on Texas.

As with any bowl game, opt-outs are here in abundance. 

For Texas they’re without the following impact players:

  • RB Bijan Robinson
  • RB Roschon Johnson
  • LB DeMarvion Overshown

As for Washington, the most notable player that may not appear here is tight end Jack Westover, who is battling a concussion.

Of course, Texas will have a more difficult time without Robinson, but how does this impact the best bets for this game?

Let’s explore. 

Washington vs. Texas Best Bets

Pick: Washington +3.5 (-110) at FanDuel

Without Robinson in this game, the Texas Longhorns and quarterback Quinn Ewers will have to look more to an aerial attack here.

While that’s not bad considering the Huskies allow nearly 242 passing yards per game (91st in the nation), the Huskies have an excellent quarterback on the other side in Michael Penix Jr., who’s not only playing in this game but is coming back to school for another year. 

We mentioned the Huskies rank 91st in the nation in passing yards allowed. Well, the Longhorns are 90th and 239 per game. 

Look for Washington to continue their offensive domination in this one. They rank second in the nation in total yards per game at 521.7.

As mentioned, the Huskies have a dominating offense, and the Longhorns don’t have the defense to stop it.

While Ewers has been just OK this season, completing 56.2% of his passes for 1,805 yards and 13 touchdowns across nine starts, he should be able to make some things happen against the Huskies secondary. 

Washington will win here, but the Longhorns and receivers Jordan Whittington and Xavier Worthy will look to take advantage.
