Wagering on College Football Betting Lines
All of the betting options available for NFL bettors are also there for college football bettors as well. Whether you prefer to get a piece of the pie on money lines, totals, spreads, props, futures or in live betting, there's something for everyone. It’s important to keep a close eye on the odds each week and identify the ones most likely to pay off the best in college football gambling.
The concept of point spread wagering in college football is easy. If Florida State is listed at -10.5 against Miami and you're betting on the Seminoles, the only way you'll be a winner is if they beat the Hurricanes by more than 10 points. If Miami loses by 10 points or fewer, it will cover the spread and be the winner.
Point spread betting is the most common way to wager upon college football. The mass majority of bets are on the point spread, because many times one of the teams is largely expected to come away with the victory.
Point spreads are fluid, as they can swing from the beginning of the week up through kickoff in NCAA football games. If the action moves a lot, it generally means most of the money is coming in one side, or there has been a development that made the oddsmakers shift the odds.
Moneyline betting isn't given nearly as much attention as spread betting is, but sharp bettors recognize that there can be a lot of value here.
Some bettors have a hard time betting on heavy underdogs because they are likely to lose, but hitting on the correct one is quite lucrative. On the flip-side, there is a high price to back favorites, but when a bettor feels like a victory is automatic, it’s an easy way to pad the bankroll.
A moneyline bet is simply a bet on who will win the game. If Ohio State is favored by seven over Michigan, the Buckeyes will end up being something along the lines of -250 on the moneyline. This means you have to wager $250 to win $100 on the Buckeyes. Whether they cover or not doesn’t matter, as the moneyline only cares about the winner of the contest.
If the underdog in a scenario wins here, it is usually around a $210 payout on $100, so it is an intriguing choice.
There was a time that totals were only available in the biggest games on the college football schedule. However, as sportsbooks have expanded and the popularity for NCAA football has exploded, there are now not only over/unders on all of the FBS games, but some of the FCS games on the schedule as well. The concept of total betting is easy. Totals are merely the total number of points scored by both teams in the game.
College football totals are always a little more interesting than in the NFL because of the way overtime works. In the NFL, there are a finite number of points that can be scored in overtime. The most that can possibly be scored as 12, and we've yet to see that in an NFL game since the new overtime rules were adopted. In college football, you can easily see 50 points scored in overtime by itself, if not more than that.
However, totals in college football are always a lot bigger than they are in the NFL. Typical totals in college football are in the 50s or 60s, whereas the NFL features totals in the 40s.
Props, Futures, and Live Betting
One of the keys for bettors is to try to take advantage of some of the more or less rogue bets that aren't a main part of the betting board.
Props aren't available in every single game, but for the big games, you can wager on whether Oklahoma's quarterback will throw for more than 300 yards or whether Oregon's running back will crack the 100-yard barrier on the ground. By getting to know individual players and offensive philosophies, player props are a great way to make some money.
Futures are virtually always available for college football bettors no matter the time of year. Before the season is always the best time to get down on your futures wagers. With the advent of the College Football Playoff, the odds of teams to win it all have gone up with two big games to win instead of just one. Futures aren't merely limited to National Championship odds, though. Before the start of the season, you can wager on the regular-season win totals for every team in the land, and you can bet on which team will win each of the major conference titles as well.
Live betting is one of the newer facets of wagering, and it’s a great way to stay invested even if it looks like some previous pre-game gambles aren’t going to pay off. Betting lines are available as games are ongoing, and they change on the drop of the hat with every single play. Totals and spreads are available for all of the big games on the move all the way through the game. No matter if you bet on a game before it kicked off or not, you've always got a way to get into the action. Several bettors only deal with live betting and look for opportunities after analyzing how some of the action has been going. College football live betting is the way of the future, and sharp bettors can use the live action to influence their choices in NCAA football odds.
