1. Commit to a Division
College football is a giant, sprawling, world. There are hundreds of teams all over the country vying for your attention. Rather than spreading yourself thin in an attempt to stay abreast of all of them instead choose a division. In this division, focus intently on the teams. Learn their strengths and weaknesses and the potential superstars they have on their team. Being really keyed in to a few teams is better than knowing jack about a ton of teams.
1. Home Field Advantage is King
Remember how everyone says that the Seattle Seahawks are unbeatable at home due to their fans? Well, in college football that isn’t special or unique. Every home team is going to have a chip on their shoulder and a slight edge. In a match up with one elite team versus a very good team at home you should consider taking the home team. There might be a little more honey in that pot than you think.
1. Follow the QB to Find the Points
Scoring 30 points in the NFL is pretty special. Scoring 50+ happens multiple times a season for the better offenses in the NCAA. If you want to take the points, over or under, follow the play of the starting QB. Guys like Jameis Winston can help put up a ton of points in a hurry. Other teams have QB’s that won’t throw the ball more than 10 times in a match up which will severely cripple their scoring potential. Keep these ideas in mind before laying down your next bet.
Betting on college football is all about arming yourself with knowledge. The more information you have to play with the more likely you are to make a smart bet. Keep these tips in mind the next time you are checking out betting lines!
