College Football Odds-Give Yourself the Best Chance of Winning Each Game

Sep 10, 2008
Every one of us probably dreams of earning a great deal of income while enjoying the very sports that we have grown to love. In the United States where football is almost a religion, a number of individuals are currently making tons of money in sports betting and through college football odds. It's no wonder that more and more people want to jump on the bandwagon. The only problem is, they jump right in very much unprepared.

Sports betting is not really that hard as most people think it is. In simplest terms, it is betting your money based on your prediction regarding the outcome of a sport event.

Before it was really very simple. Much, much simpler. When placing a bet, you are dealing with these options: the home team will win the game, or the visiting team will win, or it will be a draw. These were just the particulars bettors used to deal with.

But as time goes by, bettors created ways to make it harder to decide on a single bet. They created the odds system so this time you won't just be betting whether a certain team wins or loses or if it's a draw.

First of all, let me introduce to you the basics behind the odds system in any sports betting. For this example, we will be dealing with college football odds.

Odds and lines can be interchanged and therefore, are often confused about. Betting odds is the term used in the United States and that's what we are going to use here.

For example, in college football odds, a "+" or a "-" sign is prefixed on the given number. Let us say that they number we are dealing with here is 200. And also, let's say you are placing a bet of $100. Now, a "+200" means that if you bet $100 and you win, you will be taking home $300. On the other hand, a "-200" means that you will have to bet $200 for you to win $100.

Does it sound confusing? It maybe at first but you must first try your luck on college football odds for a few times and I'm sure you will soon get the hang of it.

College football odds weren't really that as complicated as it was when sports betting was just starting in this country.

Now that you have learned a thing or two or the basics behind college football odds, let me share with you a couple of tips that you can use so you can have the best chances of winning in every game.

1. Learn there is to know about the game and the team. You must love the game and the teams first of all so you will always be eager to learn more about them. Knowing everything from stats to the coaching styles and plays will give you better odds of making the right betting decisions.

2. It may not be possible for you to know everything about all the teams in a given league or sports, that is why it is advisable that you stick with only a handful of teams that you are really very intimate or familiar with. Admit your limitations. If you still want to bet on other teams, get the services of a reputable professional handicapper.
