Betting On College Football

College Football betting markets are similar to NFL betting markets. There are three major basic bets that bettors can make:


A money line bet on a College Football game is the most basic bet, with the bettor wagering on the winner of the game.  

Total Points

The total points betting market refers to the combined points that will be scored by both teams over the duration of a match. Sportsbook will get bettors the option of taking an Over/Under bet on the Totals Market. ‘Covering the bet’ is a term that you will hear when a side exceeds the points required for a successful bet. 

Handicap, Line, Spread

Handicap, line or spread betting focuses on countering a team’s possible strength or weakness in a potential match-up. If a side is heavily favoured to win the match then they will receive a negative handicap and start from behind in the betting.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, a side that is a heavy underdog will be given a positive handicap to signify a points head start. College Football teams vary widely in strengths and abilities and the handicap offered by sportsbooks is a way to level the playing field. The points handicap is often called ‘the spread’ in the US betting market. 

You’ll find some real value in the handicap market once you build up your familiarity with each team roster. The handicap market is the reference point for gauging a team’s chances of success in any College Football matchup. 

For example, the Georgia Bulldogs might be at odds of -6.5 against the Ohio State Buckeyes +6.5. A bet on the Bulldogs would win if they win the game by seven or more points, while a bet on the Buckeyes would pay out if they win or lose by six points or less.

Half Time/Full Time

Predict which team will be winning at half time and at full time, this bet can be useful in lopsided encounters to give you more value than a win bet.

Alternative Totals

If a College Football game is tipped to go way over or under the total points, use alternative totals to get more bang for your buck by predicting a game that will be a lot more or less than the bookmakers line.

Team Points

These bets take the winner and loser out of the equation. Betting on only one team to score an amount of points can be done in a range of different betting markets, such as over/under total points and team to score in every quarter.
