NCAAF Betting

If you’re an avid college football fan and enjoy testing your NCAAF odds knowledge by placing wagers, then you’ve come to the right place. Understanding college football odds can seem daunting, especially with the multitude of games happening every weekend. But fear not, here at Regal, we’re committed to supporting you and guiding you through the process of understanding college football odds, ensuring you’re well-equipped to navigate the world of college football betting.

Let’s dive in!

College Football Moneyline Betting
Moneyline (ML) betting is the simplest form to grasp. Also known as outright or straight-up (SU) betting, it involves selecting the winner of the game. For beginners, this is an excellent starting point. College football Moneyline odds typically appear as follows:

Alabama Crimson Tide +125
Auburn Tigers -150

In this example, the Auburn Tigers (-150) are the favorites against the visiting Crimson Tide (+125). The minus (-) sign indicates the favored team, while the home team is listed second. To win $100, you’d need to risk $150 on the Tigers, while a $100 bet on the underdog Crimson Tide would yield $120.

College Football Point Spread Betting
While Moneyline betting is straightforward, betting against the spread (ATS) is more popular. ATS betting levels the playing field by handicapping the favorite and giving underdogs a chance to win. Spread odds assign a set number of points to each game, known as the spread. Here’s how Regal presents spread odds:

Clemson Tigers +3.5 (-105)
Wisconsin Badgers -3.5 (-115)

In this scenario, the spread is 3.5 points, consistent for both teams. Half-points are used to avoid ties. For the Badgers to win the bet, they must win by more than 3.5 points. A $100 winning bet on the Tigers at -105 would pay out $95, while a bet on the Badgers at -115 would yield $86.95 plus the original wager.

College Football Totals Betting
Total betting, or Over/Under (O/U) betting, focuses solely on the total points scored in a game, irrespective of the winning team. Here’s how O/U odds appear:

LSU Tigers vs. Ole Miss Rebels O/U 47.5 (o-105)/-115u)

In this example, the total score must surpass 47.5 points for the Over to win. The Under wins if the score remains below 48 points. The Over is at -105 odds, while the Under is favored at -115.

College Football Prop Betting
Regal Sportsbook offers a variety of prop bets for major matchups, including player and team props. Player props focus on individual player performance, while team props cover team statistics during a game. Examples include:

Rutgers Scarlet Knights O/U 99.5 Rushing Yards (o-110/u-110)
Will Caleb Williams Throw for (3) or more passing touchdowns? Yes -150 No +125
