Online College Football Betting

NCAA college football games can’t really match high-profile NFL games in terms of popularity, but there’s no denying the fact that college football has plenty of die-hard fans in the United States. Consequently, many online sports betting sites are proud to offer a complete college football betting experience allowing you to wager real money on pretty much every NCAA event.

As a result, experienced NCAA college football bettors are free to compare the odds listed by the best bookmakers and settle for nothing short of the most advantageous bets, which allows them to maximize their profits while minimizing the risks. However, comparing those odds requires you to understand how each of the popular bet types works – and while this guide won’t turn you into an expert, it should definitely help you in making the first step in the right direction.

NCAA College Football Online Betting Guide

Betting on the Point Spread

Betting on the point spread in college football is a great alternative for bettors who’d like to wager on the underdogs, as they handicap the stronger team by modifying the overall score. In most cases, bets of this type allow you to win $100 for every $110 you wager. Consider the following example:

Team A +7.5 odds

Team B -7.5 odds

In this case, the bookmaker set the spread at 7.5 points. To win on a bet placed on Team B it would require your team to win by 8 points or more. Conversely, if you bet on Team A, your bet would win even if you team lost by 7 points.

Betting on the Moneyline

Betting the money line is the most intuitive way of putting your money on a college football games and the most popular bet among casual gamblers. To win on a college football moneyline, you simply pick the winner. That is it. The odds for money line bets are expressed using a $100 basis. The lines for underdog teams are marked with a plus sign and allow you to win the amount listed on the site by wagering $100, while the lines for the favorites are always listed with a minus sign and require you to wager a pre-determined sum to win $100.

Team A -230 odds

Team B +210 odds

In this case, Team A are the favorites. In order to win $100 betting on them, you would need to put up $230. On the flip side, betting $100 on the underdog Team B would yield a $210 win. The underdog is called that for a reason. Your chances of winning are smaller, but the reward is much bigger.

Over/Under Betting

Over/under bets are different from point spread or moneylines, as they require you to predict the combined score of both teams instead of the actual winner. Each over/under bet comes with a total set by the sportsbook. Whenever you place an over bet, you wager that the combined score of both teams will be higher than that total. Conversely, if you place an under bet, you win only if the combined score is lower than the total.

Parlay Betting

Want to place bets on multiple outcomes? Parlay’s have you covered.

NCAA college football parlays allow bettors to combine two or more sure-bets into a single ticket for a bigger payout, but you should keep in mind that losing even one of the selections results in forfeiting all of the money that you’ve wagered. You need to win all of your games on your bet. Losing even one will result in an overall loss.

In most cases, bettors prefer to parlay several money line bets or a single money line and an over/under bet placed on the same match, but there’s nothing to stop you from experimenting with some of the more exotic combinations. Please note that parlays are sometimes referred to as accumulators or multipliers.

Futures Bets

Betting on future outcomes is becoming a more and more popular way to bet. Futures bets allow bettors to place money on future outcomes, such as wins, point production, and championships. Bets, like NCAA college football future bets, come with great initial odds, but long-term bets take time and can tie up funds until the outcome his decided. If you are a patient gambler, futures is the way to go. If you want an immediate payoff, a different betting strategy is probably for you.

In the last ten years, Alabama has ended up atop the standings and won the National Championship five times Clemson ranks second during that time-span with two wins in the last three years. Here are the last 10 National Championship winners:

YEAR CHAMPION Preseason Odds
2018 Clemson +450 odds
2017 Alabama +250 odds
2016 Clemson +700 odds
2015 Alabama +600 odds
2014 Ohio State +1200 odds
2013 Florida State +4000 odds
2012 Alabama +550 odds
2011 Alabama +600 odds
2010 Auburn +5000 odds
2009 Alabama +1200 odds

This year’s favorites in NCAA Championship betting feature a bevy of heavy-hitters, including at Clemson (+225) odds, Alabama (+225), Georgia (+650) and Ohio State (+950) per Bodog.

Prop Bets

NCAA college football proposition bets are also referred to as “props.” These type of wagers are simply bets that don’t really fall into any broad categories. Props range from predicting the performance of a specific player throughout the game or more irreverent wagers such as the length of the NCAA Championship halftime show. Props can honestly be anything as long as the bet does or does not occur during a specific game. Sites offer a different selection of props, so it’s always a good idea to take a look at the available prop markets before signing up for any NCAA-friendly sportsbook.

An example of a prop bet would be wagering on the 2019 Heisman Trophy winner. This year’s favorites include Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (+250) odds, Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence (+300) odds and Oklahoma starting QB Jalen Hurts (+600) odds leading the charge.
