College Football Betting Odds

College football betting could be the best way for you to discover this amazing sport without needing to rely on the NFL. College football pits the very best upcoming American football players against each other, and is the breeding ground for the next generation of NFL superstars.

And you can bet on college football all season long here at Bet UK. In this guide we’ll take you through how to bet on NCAAF, how to find the best NCAA football odds, what the top college football best bets are, and leave you with some college football betting tips to get started.

How college football betting works

You can bet on college football in the same way you’d bet on the NFL. Simply join Bet UK, charge your account with a first deposit, and place wagers on games throughout the season. College football betting encompasses all bet types and fans generally thrive on the following markets:

Win odds – Bet on the team you think will win the game

Over\Unders – Wager on the total points scored in a game. For example, you might bet on a game between Georgia and Penn State to go above +65.5 points.

Handicaps – Add a weight to the final score to make it more balanced. For example, you bet on Utah to beat USC even with a -11.5 handicap.

College football is huge, and features 133 teams. Much of the focus is on the top games, where the likes of Navy, Florida State, Duke and UNLV compete. At the end of the regular season the College Football Playoffs begin, and eventually we get to the bowl games.

These include the Orange Bowl, Sugar Bowl and Peach Bowl. The College football National Championship is played in January, where one team is crowned the overall winner of the college football season.

If the college football structure feels too complicated then don’t worry. It is complex but the best thing to do is focus on your individual games, and build your knowledge slowly. Over a few weeks you’ll come to learn the intricacies of this college sport, and the prizes each team is aiming for. This will then help your bet choices!

Remember, you can also bet on the college football champions for the upcoming season in the Bet UK outright American Football markets. This could be your chance to back a team early at great odds before their price falls during the season!

College football best bets

Betting on college football is akin to wagering on NFL but there are some smarter bet options you can place here. Below are some of the NCAAF best bets worth considering:

Bet on what you know – There is less information about college football betting than there is about the NFL. Fewer media channels and publications focus on the college teams, so it's worth betting on what you do know, and not taking wild punts.

Do your research – If you literally know nothing about betting on college football but want to get involved then the smartest thing to do is conduct research. Look at in-form teams, players and upcoming games, and figure out where your banker bets are.

Bet on points – One of the NCAAF best bets available is to wager on high-scoring games. That’s because it’s easier to score in college football than the NFL, because defences aren’t as strong or disciplined.

Look for accumulator opportunities – There are a lot of mismatches in college football, which means you’re always on the lookout for heavy favourites. Group a dew dead-certs together and you’ll have a strong accumulator on your hands.
