College Football Betting
With betting on College football being the second most popular
form of sports wagering we felt it was appropriate to offer a college
football betting guide to our visitors.
The most popular bet in College football is a straight bet on a
single team. The bet is determined by the point spread, a handicap
that allegedly gives both teams an equivalent chance to cover the
College football betting line and win for the bettor. The person
wagering selects one team, either the favorite or the underdog,
and bets in a pecuniary arena that requires him to risk $11 to win
$10. For an example lets say that Nebraska and Colorado are playing
and Nebraska is a 6 ½ point favorite. If the bettor liked
Nebraska he would lay or give the 6 ½, and the Cornhuskers
would have to win by at least 7 points for him to win his bet. If
the sports bettor like Colorado, he would take or get 6 ½
points, which means he would win the bet if the Buffaloes lost by
no more than 6 points.
In short form the person betting on Nebraska started the game out
minus 6 ½ points, or 6 ½ points in the hole. The person
wagering on Colorado started the game with a 6 ½ point bonus.
Once the game has ended the sportsbook will subtract the 6 ½
from the final score of Nebraska or add the 6 ½ points to
the final score of the Buffaloes, depending on which team the bettor
placed his bet on. If the final score was Nebraska 35, Colorado
28, Nebraska would be declared the point spread winner (35 minus
6.5 = 28.5). In the sports betting community, Nebraska was a 28.5
to 28 winner. If the game ended Nebraska 34, Colorado 28, the Buffaloes
would be the winners (28 plus 6 ½ = 34 ½), which would
mean Colorado won 34.5 to 34.
