College Football Point Spreads

 

The most popular way to bet on college football is the point spread, also known as the spread or line. Sportsbooks determine a number that will help level the playing field in an attempt to get equal amounts of betting action on either side. Perhaps the biggest difference between betting the National Football League and college football are the size of the point spreads due to a lack of parity creating huge mismatches. Lets look a little deeper into college football point spreads and what to watch for.

 

Key NFL Betting Numbers and How to Use Them

 

Maybe the best part of betting the spread is that it allows you to bet on either side, no matter who you think will actually win the game. But remember point spreads donít represent the same value in the NFL and NCAAF. Only 7 games have had a point spread of 20 or greater in NFL history, with the largest spread being 27, while most weeks on the college football schedule will have more than 30 games with point spreads of 20 or more.

 

While itís true there are many more games played in college than the NFL, it is important to know that a spread of 14 in the NFL represents a huge favorite, while a 14-point spread in a game featuring a top college team is not that big of a favorite. This is probably the single biggest difference between betting the NFL and college football. All numbers are not created equally.

 

Another reason betting the point spread in college football is so popular is because most recreational bettors do not have time or energy to spend on handicapping games. The spread essentially gives a 50/50 chance to win, making it easier to choose a side, even if you are guessing. With this 50/50 proposition, moneymaking opportunities are a plenty. But make sure you temper expectations.

 

When looking at college point spreads, you always need to consider why a sportsbook is giving a team the points they are. Letís look at this example:

 

LSU ††††††† +9Ĺ-110 (underdog)

Auburn† -9Ĺ-110 (favorite)

 

Learn the basic of understanding of how to read sports betting odds

 

This game has Auburn hosting LSU in Week 3 of the 2018 college football season, and are a 9Ĺ-point favorite. What this means is before the opening kickoff, in the betting world, the score is LSU 9.5 Ė Auburn 0. Both teams come into this one 2-0 and ranked inside the top 12, so why 9 and a half points? Oddsmakers are very smart, and perhaps we will never know exactly what factors they take into account when determining the spread for any game.

 

Most recreational bettors place wagers to add a little more excitement to a game they plan on watching with friends and family, and not a lot of homework is put into it. On the flipside, if you want to be profitable at sports betting, you have to develop a systematic approach to figuring out which factors will be important to you, and find out why a spread is at a certain number.

 

It is also important to keep key numbers in mind when betting college point spreads. 3, 7 and 10 are the most common differences in game scores. While these numbers are not quite as important in college ball as they are in the NFL, it is still important to keep them in mind.

 

The Sports Consensus - Teaser Betting Can Be Fun and Exciting

 

When betting on college football point spreads, two other tips I will leave you with are to shop for lines and be selective. If you want to win regularly when betting on sports, you need to find an edge, any weakness and exploit it. Remember the amount of college games there are compared to the NFL. Online Sportsbook do not have the time to spend like they do on every NFL game, so go find the weakness and expose it in your favor.

 

I understand a lot of this information is common sense, but sometimes we all need a reminder of the little things. Donít get caught up in factors that wonít have an impact on the outcome of a game. Be selective, and remember that value can be found outside of the Power 5 Conferences too. Good luck this college football betting season, and I hope these few ideas will help you win more bets.
