College Football Lines
There are 2 types of betting lines in sports betting, the moneyline,
which is more commonly used for sports like baseball, tennis, and
boxing, and the point spread, the line regularly used for football
and basketball. Because College football spreads are not the only
ways you can place wagers these days, we will also be explaining
NCAA College football lines in this article.
To explain this clearly this entire article will refer to this
hypothetical College football betting line below.
Notre Dame +170
The NCAA football lines punishes bettors wagering on favorites
by making them lay money, in essence making them bet more money
on a team, than they hope to win back. For example if a bettor had
to lay 2 to 1 odds, for every $10 he hoped to win, he would have
to bet $20. So using the example above if the bettor wanted to win
$100 and bet on USC he would have to lay $200 to win $100. If USC
was able to win the game straight up the sports book would than
refund that $200 the bettor had to put up in the first place, as
well as credit him $100 to his account for the winning wager.
Now on the other side of the coin, the underdog bettors are rewarded
for wagering on the lesser of the 2 skilled opponents. Underdog
bettors receive more money back than they bet as compensation for
betting on the “dog”. Using that same College football
line above, betting on the underdog would pay back $170 for every
$100 wagered. In addition to winning that $170 the bettor is only
required to risk $100 and that $100 is also refunded to your account
if Notre Dame pulls off the upset.
