Popular College Football Betting Markets
Moneyline: The easiest to comprehend bet on the board is the Moneyline. This bet is simply placing a wager on who will win the match.
Total Points (Over/Under): One of the most common bets in College Basketball is the over/under line. The Sportsbook will put up a number for the total amount of points they think the two teams will put up and then you can wager on whether they'll exceed that number or fall short. Which teams puts up the points doesn't come into the equations, they all count the same. So if Duke are playing Kentucky and the over/under number is 129.5 - if Kentucky wins 80-50 or 66-64 - the over will win either way. It should be noted here that overtime counts so if a game goes to OT - those points matter and it is rarely good for the under bettor.
Spread: A Sportsbook looks at a game and will offer bettors a chance to have what is a weighted bet. They will handicap both teams so whilst in real life a game will start 0-0, in the betting world of a spread bet it doesn't. Say Kentucky are 3.5pt favorites over Duke, for betting purposes the game would start with Duke leading by 3.5pts. The final score would then be added to the weighted score to give us a result for betting purposes. If Kentucky won by more than four points then bettors backing them would win. A Kentucky win by less than four or an outright loss would hand Kentucky bettors a loss.
Teaser Bets: With a teaser, you can move the line for shorter/longer odds. Using the example above, if you think Kentucky are a significantly better team than Duke then you can move the line to pinch points to get better odds. If you back Kentucky -5.5pts then if that bet wins, the payout would be greater than a Kentucky win by 3.5pts.
Parlay Bets: This is a popular bet for those looking to win big with a very low stake. If you place a small wager on multiple games on one bet slip, if they all come in then the odds will be significantly higher than if you placed multiple singles.
Future Bets: This bet is where you are betting on an outright winner of either an end of season tournament (i.e. March Madness) or you can bet on the regular season winner in each conference.
