How to Bet on NCAA College Football at TopBet
Spread betting is a popular way to bet on NCAA football, which has its fair share of mismatches. In this sort of betting, a “spread” is assigned to both teams. This spread will reflect the relative strength of the two teams.
When a team has a spread with a “-” sign, it’s the favorite. To win the bet, the favorite’s margin of victory must be more than the amount of the spread. Let’s say you bet on Alabama as a -35 favorite. The Tide would need to win by 36 or more points to cover the spread and win.
Meanwhile, a team that has a spread with a “+” sign is the underdog. To win the bet, the underdog must either win the game or lose by a margin that isn’t more than the spread. So if you bet on Michigan State as a +7 underdog and they lose 24-21, your bet still wins because the Spartans only lost by three points.
If the margin of victory lands directly on the spread, like a 24-21 score on a three-point spread, it’s called a push and you get your money back. If there’s a .5 in the spread, though, there’s no way a push is possible.
Over/Under or Total
The total is the the combined number of points the two teams scored in a game. A 24-17 scoreline in the Iron Bowl between Alabama and Auburn has a total of 41.
To win at an over/under or total bet, you must correctly determine if the total will be higher or lower than the line set by the oddsmakers. Let’s say the total in the Iron Bowl was 40.5 and you bet the over, the total must be 41 or more for that bet to win. It also has to go 40 or below for the under to win.
All you need to do in the moneyline is to pick which team you think will win the game. However, keep in mind that the amount of money you win depends on the moneyline odds.
If you bet on Michigan as -250 favorites, it means you need to bet $250 to get $100 if the Wolverines do win. Meanwhile, if Ohio State is a +300 underdog, a $100 bet on them could yield $300.
TopBet offers live betting for NCAA college football. Llive betting allows you to bet on the spread, over/under, and moneyline while it’s still ongoing. Those odds will reflect what has already happened during the game, and will continue to update in real time as the game unfolds.
A prop bet is simply a bet on whether or not something will occur in a particular game. An example of a prop bet is if Alabama’s defense scores a defensive touchdown. “Yes” will have odds based on the likelihood of that happening as will “No.”
From individual players to coaches, teams, and game props, there are several types of prop bets that will become available throughout the season.
A parlay is a combination of two or more spread, over/under, and/or moneyline bets, all of which have to be correct in order for you to win. Since it’s much tougher to get several bets right, the potential amount of a winning parlay is much greater than a bunch of single bets.
NCAA football is a great sport to bet on with parlays since there are a lot of games to choose from every weekend. Top Bet offers several parlay options for players to take part in all college football season long.
The parlay challenge has already pre-picked games, so the players just need to pick those games correctly in order to win big sums.
The parlay card provides a wide list of games and the player has the option of which games to include in the parlay.
And finally, the teaser challenge is similar to the parlay challenge, with the only difference being that the spreads will be more favorably adjusted, meaning the potential payout won’t be quite as high.
