College Football Betting Lines
College Football Betting Lines for this weeks slate of NCAA Football can be seen below the article, or view the odds comparison tool from multiple sportsbooks on the College football lines page of Maddux Sports.
College Football betting can be a major money maker for sports bettors because of the fact that there are 120 Division IA teams as opposed to 32 NFL teams. Thus, there is a huge gap in talent from top to bottom. Also, the high volume of games each Saturday leaves bookmakers vulnerable to making a mistake with the college betting lines that the keen sports gambler can pounce on. But to be successful at wagering on college football, you must have an understanding of how the NCAA football betting lines work.
NCAA Football Betting Line
College Football wagering is exactly the same as betting on the NFL in regards to using the College Football betting line to separate two teams that are playing one another. The one difference however is the tendency to see betting lines that are a lot higher in the NFL. Again this is due to the difference in the number of teams and the large discrepancy in the quality (talent gap) of those teams that results from that fact. Bookmakers and sportsbooks use college football betting lines to try and get even action on both teams. They anoint 1 team as the favorite and the other team as the underdog. For an example of a typical NCAA football betting line keep reading.
Lets say LSU and Alabama are squaring off and you hear LSU is favored by 4.5 points. What exactly does this mean? Well the bookmakers have said that LSU is 4.5 points than Alabama, and if you want to place a wager on the LSU Tigers, they must win the game by 5 points or more. Any other result would mean that Alabama covers the spread. As long as Alabama loses the game by less than 5 points or wins the game outright, all Crimson Tide bettors would be winners.
That is the college football betting line in a nutshell. Now that you are clear on that check out the NCAA football betting lines below that appear courtesy of Bodog Sportsbook. Bodog offers a 10% signup bonus for you this season.
