Popular NCAAF Betting Lines and Odds
As soon as you start exploring our NCAA Football betting lines, you will realize that there are loads of them allowing you to bet on many different aspects of the sport. We know that it can be a little overwhelming at first, but here we will take you through the most popular types of bets so that you can get started immediately.
This is the most common type of college football bet placed and also the easiest to understand. You can place a moneyline bet during the regular season and bowl games. It is simply a bet on which of the teams you think will win the game. As long as your chosen team wins, then you will win the bet. For example, if Alabama and Louisiana State University were to play each other, the market may look something like this:
Alabama -220 LSU +180
If you are new to betting, it can be difficult to interpret these odds; however, it isn’t hard. The team with the minus sign is the favorite and the team with the plus is the underdog. The number after the minus sign tells you how much you need to bet to win $100 and the number after the plus sign tells you how much you win if you bet $100.
Using the above example, if you were to bet $100 on Alabama and the team won, then you would win $45.45 and you would also receive your $100 bet back. If you were to bet $100 on LSU and they were to win, then you would receive $280 (including your betting money).
The logic here is simple. It is harder to win when betting on the underdog, which is why the potential returns are bigger. However, this means that if you believe that a team is going to cause an upset then you may have the opportunity to land a big payout.
The point spread bet is a wager on how much a team will win or lose by. The market gives the underdog an advantage not to lose the game by more than a certain number of points or simply to win it. At the same time, the favorite is given a disadvantage as they need to win the game by more than a certain number of points.
The favorite team is given the disadvantage in the point spread, as they need to win the game by a certain number of points. The underdog is then given an advantage, meaning that they then need to not lose the game by at least that many points or to win the game outright.
A typical point spread market for an NCAA Football game might be: Ohio State -8, Illinois +8.
This means that Ohio State is favorite to win the game by at least 8 point. Usually the odds on these markets are set at -110, to attract bettors to both sides and ensure that it is a level playing field.
When planning your bet, you need to decide if you think that Ohio will win by at least 8 points or if Illinois will win the game or lose by less than 8 point. If you bet on Ohio State and they win 35-31, it means that Illinois has covered the spread and you lose the bet. However, if they were to win 35-26, it means that Illinois did not cover the spread and you win your bet. If you had bet on Illinois, then you win if the team wins the game or if they lose by fewer than 8 points (e.g. 31-28).
The totals be tis another very popular market and one that is easy to understand. It is a bet on whether the total number of points scored by both teams will be over or under the number given in the market. For example, you may see Wisconsin vs Michigan – Total 58.5.
In this instance, you are betting on whether the combined score of the teams will be more than 58.5 points (over) or less than 58.5 points (under). If Wisconsin was to win the game 32-29 then it would be a total of 61 points, which means that those who had bet over would win their bets.
Very occasionally, you will see markets without the half point, e.g. over/under 58 points. If the game had exactly 58 points, then the bets would be retuned as a push.
You may come across a number of variations on this market. For instance, you could bet on the number of points scored by a particular team or in a particular half. The markets work in exactly the same way and give you plenty of opportunities to win.
Parlay bets are a way of combing in multiple wagers onto one ticket. This way, the potential winnings are increased, but the bets are harder to win as all your combined bets have to win.
For instance, you could combine a moneyline bet with a totals bet using these two markets:
- Ohio +800 UL Lafayette -1400
- Boston College vs Temple O/U 58.5 (-110)
If you were to bet on Lafayette to win and place an over bet on the second game, then the combined odds become +105. This means that if you were to bet $100 and both bets were to win, then you would make a profit of $105.
The great thing about parlay bets is that you can combine bets from different games or the same game, and they do not have to be the same type of bet. It gives you the chance to take advantage of longer odds than if you were to place the bets individually, which means that you have the chance to win more money.
An NCAA Football teaser bet is one of the more confusing types to understand, but it can be a very powerful betting tool. Teaser betting allows you to move the spread or total odds in your favor on two or more bets. It is similar to a parlay in that all of the bets on the ticket must win; however, the ability to move the spread or total odds reduces the risk somewhat.
Imagine you are looking at two games:
- Clemson -10 vs Louisville +10
- Colorado -13 vs Arkansas +13
For a teaser bet, you then have to pick one side of each match to change. It means that the new odds on the betting slip would look something like this:
- Clemson -3
- Arkansas +20
When it comes to college football, the most common teasers are 6, 7 or 10 points. Teaser bets do not pay as much as parlay bets, but as noted, they are far less risky. Don’t worry if this seems a little confusing. You can play around with the lines on your bet slip and see how it affects the odds. Once you try a few examples of your own, you are sure to understand exactly how they work.
A round robin bet may look complicated, but essentially, it is just a series of smaller parlays created from a longer list of bets. You need to select multiple games to bet on and they are then combined into a series of parlays.
For instance, if you wanted to pick winners from three separate games, one option would be to combine them all into a parlay. However, if one of your chosen teams loses, then you lose the entire bet. With a round robin, you still have the chance to win, even if one of your picks is wrong. For example, if you wanted to back Ohio, UCF and Maryland, then the combinations would be Ohio/UCF, Ohio/Maryland, and UCF/Maryland. If all three of your selections are correct then you win, if two of your selections are correct then you still win, but a smaller payout. However, you don’t win if just one pick was correct or if all three lose.
NCAA Football Futures
As the name suggests, future bets are on things to happen in the more distant future than the next game of the season. The most common type of future bet is on a team to win their conference of the championship game. For example, you can bet on a team to win the CFP National Championship Game and you will also find markets such as Win ACC Championship Game, Win AAC Championship Game, Win BIG 12 Championship Game, and so on.
Of course, it takes some time to find out if you have won these bets, but it means that you will have some betting action going on for the entire season. More importantly, the earlier in the season that you place the bets, the larger the potential winnings. Just remember that it may be many months before you see any returns, and you will have to take this into account when planning your betting bankroll.
NCAA Football live betting, which is sometimes called in-play betting, can make watching college football even more exciting. It allows you to place bets on a game as the game is taking place. There are live odds and lines available for each drive and you will often find a number of proposition bets as well. For instance, you could place a “result of drive” bet on how one of the teams will perform in a specific drive, such as if the quarterback will throw an interception or complete his next pass, or if the team will score. You can also make use of many of the betting markets described above. The odds change very quickly based upon what is happening on the field. The aim is to keep a close eye on the odds to try to spot some good opportunities, or simply use your understanding of the game to react to what is happening and try to win some money.
