Get The Most from Your College Football Bets in 2020

In the middle of these tumultuous times we are all longing for normalcy, and hoping the upcoming college football season is unaffected. Because after a long week, there’s no finer feeling than kicking back, relaxing, and enjoying a weekend of football. Mike Gundy wants games played (to the tune of going overboard). Brian Kelly says Kirk Herbstreit was overly pessimistic. The only enhancement to enjoying the games? Placing a bet and winning some considerable money. If you’re into betting on college football and you want to make 2020 the year that you beat the bookies, here’s a look at a few handy tips and tricks to help you get the most from your bets. Choose your favorite betting offer at and follow these tips to get the best return on your bet.

Know the differences from the NFL

Football is football, right? Wrong. You think because you’ve won an NFL office pool at work you can crush the college game. Remember, there are bigger spreads in college football, by quite a margin. In the NFL, a spread over 10 points is big. In college football, a spread over 40 points is nothing out of the ordinary. There’s a far bigger discrepancy between the best and worst programs in CFB, and there’s money to be made there. This can be daunting at first, but once you get used to the lines, it‚Äôs really not anymore.¬†

Understand home-field advantage is often not a big deal

In any sport, the team playing at home surely has the advantage because they are in familiar surroundings, don’t have to travel, had more time to prepare, and have the home crowd. In college football, though, the home-field advantage can be overrated and overvalued according to the numbers. College athletes are unpredictable, offenses are wide open, and talent is dispersed wider than ever before. Do not be afraid to bet on the away team since you will get much better odds betting on them.

Download the best betting apps

If you want to make your college football betting even easier, be sure to download the best betting apps for the job. Some popular choices include: 

  • Draftkings 
  • Pointsbet
  • SugarHouse
  • BetMGM 
  • William Hill 

Take the moneyline for simplicity

If you’re new to college football betting, or just want to save time, don’t be afraid to take the moneyline. When you take the moneyline, this basically means that you are betting on one team to win, and that’s it. Forget the margin of victory, you are either betting on Team A, or Team B to win.
