NCAA Football Betting Odds
If you’re just learning to bet on NCAA football, you’re probably well familiar with the point spreads. This is perhaps the most popular way to bet over college football. Rather than betting on just one of the teams in a matchup to win outright, the favorite (also the team most thought to win) is given an advantage of a certain number of point spreads. In many ways, it’s much like the Lottery.
But why do people love to bet this way? There are actually many valid reasons for people to do this. Perhaps the biggest reason is that it gives you a chance to make some money without actually having to put down any money. Just think about the Gators. Sure, Florida has a lot of talent and they have been one of the biggest surprises to the NCAA in the last few years.
But they’ve also been one of the most consistent teams to lose. Florida is a very high risk/reward program. It’s really hard to come up with a specific statistical data set that will indicate which teams will win a particular game or series of games. So it’s a bit of hit and miss. Whereas, if you bet using the moneyline bets, you almost always at least hope that you’ll win more than you lose. In the end, the best way to make money is to pick your bets and bet them based on strong statistical evidence.
So what kind of things should you look for in the statistical evidence that you use to place your bets? There are a few different types of evidence, but the one that is probably the easiest to implement is a moneyline win or loss. This is something like the old “take your first deposit and you have x amount of winnings” promotions that used to exist. You would simply take out a small wager and then if you were successful you could keep on taking out more wagers and so on. Eventually you’d end up with a fairly impressive bottom line.
The problem with these is that sometimes people will win the first time they play and keep playing. But if you’re playing spread betting you’ll have to take the wins into account and sometimes that means taking a bit of a hit to the bank. It’s definitely possible to make money over the long run on spread betting, but you have to realize that over the short term it can cost you a lot of money.
Now, let’s talk about the best way to win when betting on NCAA football. You have to find the correct odds. Odds are basically the best way to predict how a team will play in any given game. And the best way to find the correct odds is to look at the games that occurred before each team was in the finals. You should find the games that gave the teams the best chances of winning and then study those teams.
But you also have to be careful of NCAA football betting sites that are just trying to pull in new players. Because the games are very competitive, many of them have special incentives for players who sign up. Often times, there will be NCAA football betting sites that offer new player bonuses of $50 or more. If you sign up with a site that offers such a huge bonus, don’t expect to walk away from your profits early.
When looking at the odds you should always compare them to those of other betting odds. If you find one that appears to have a very low rate, you may want to move on to the next one. You never want to give up all your profits in one day because you found the best college football betting odds. The bookie would look something like this. If you had picked one side at a 90% chance of winning, you would have walked away with a profit, right?
