Can I bet on college football games in progress?
In states like Kentucky, you can live bet on college football games in the middle of the action. During live betting, the odds change with the action on the field, as you bet on everything from the current drive results to the outcome of the very next play.
Live college football betting will quickly make your mobile device your favorite game-watching companion. That goes for everything from regular-season action to the CFP National Championship game, when the season’s highest volume of live betting markets should be available.
How to make the basic college football bets
Most college football game-line betting is on spreads, moneylines, and totals.
Spread betting gives the favorite a handicap, which evens out the odds between teams. Then, moneylines are where you find the big odds differentials and lock in the currently posted odds on your pick to win a game without the aid of the spread. Totals come with nearly even odds on a game’s total combined score landing over or under a specific projection.
With all three, you make your picks based on the current line and odds, choose a bet size, and fire away. Even if the lines or odds change ahead of the game, you’ll have locked them in as posted when you placed your bet.
How to bet on college football props and futures
College football team and player props are not available in every state, but they should be in Kentucky.
Most props surround stats, allowing you to bet on teams and players achieving certain stat lines in a game (or not).
College football futures are mostly bets on teams winning titles. That might mean a division or conference title or the National Championship. You can even place a futures bet on your favorites to be one of the four teams in the College Football Playoff.
Plus, player futures let you bet on outcomes like a player winning the Heisman Trophy. Most futures odds are available all year long and are usually better the earlier you bet.
These bets work the same as most others. You make your pick based on the current line and odds, choose a bet size, and fire away. Even if the lines or odds change throughout the year, you’ll have locked them in as posted when you placed your bet.
Betting on bowl games and the College Football Playoff
College Football Playoff and National Championship futures are easily the most popular futures bets. However, you can also bet on non-CFP bowl games.
The CFP and National Championship odds are long on almost every team until the season starts. Once the clear favorites show themselves midway through the season, the odds tighten. Thus, betting early in these markets gives you more of an opportunity to win big.
Once the regular season ends, the NCAA sets bowl matchups, and odds become available for every bowl game.
Does college football have alternate lines?
You can bet on alternate college football lines for spreads and totals. Alternatives allow you to manipulate the line or odds to improve your chances of winning or your payday if you do win. Of course, this is done at your own risk because oddsmakers are usually quite accurate. Betting on alternate lines means betting against their expertise.
Why are the spreads missing sometimes in college football?
You might find spreads as high as 40 points or more in college football games. Sometimes, favorites are so overwhelming that sportsbooks won’t even post a spread. Sportsbooks will pull the bet off the board if there is no reasonable way to even out the odds or draw equal betting to each side.
What is ‘public betting’ in college football?
Shop around from sportsbook to sportsbook, and you might find a line that looks different at one. You’ll find these differences when big money comes in on one side of a bet, and a sportsbook moves its line to even out the betting. Big money might mean one or a few big bets or the majority of the betting public backing one side.
Either way, this allows you to bet on what the often-very-accurate oddsmakers originally thought at a better price or improved odds. Experts call this “betting against the public” because you are essentially betting against the public betting that forced the sportsbook to move its line.
It’s an easy way to find an edge. Watch the lines to see if they move and pounce when the opportunity presents itself.
