College Football News 

College football betting ranks second only to the NFL when it comes to wagering fervor. And because most college football games are on Saturday – not interfering with the Sunday NFL slate – betting on college football action gets almost exclusive focus each week.

Not surprisingly, given America’s romance with spread betting, college football point spreads remain the favorite way to bet on your alma mater.

Our college football betting strategies come down to reading game previews, checking college football scores and standings, seeing a team’s offensive and defensive stats and, of course, a little bit of luck. You never know if a last-minute field goal is going to net you a major payout.

College Football Futures

Besides traditional college football wagering lines for moneyline bets, OVER/UNDERs and point spread bets, bettors love college football predictions on who will win the College Football Playoff National Championship and which player will be bestowed the coveted Heisman Trophy.

College Football Betting News FAQ

What is a totals bet in college football?

A totals bet in college football is a wager on the combined number of points scored in a game. You bet on whether the total points will go over or under a set number. If the total in a Cincinnati vs Michigan game is 58, and Cincinnati wins 34-30, the “over” wins as both teams combined to score more than 58 points. If Cincinnati wins 34-23, the under wins.

How do point spreads work in college football?

Point spreads in college football are wagers on the margin of victory. If Alabama is -2.5 against Georgia, then the Bulldogs have to win by 3 points or more in order to cover the spread, and win the bet. If Georgia loses by one (1) or two (2) points or wins the game outright, anyone who bet on Georgia wins their wager.
