How To Wager On College Football Futures

Football is by far the most popular game among bettors in the US, and many are keen to wager on college football. With so many schools and games during the season, predicting which school will become the champion every season is challenging and interesting. 

Our experts are helping out on this task by analyzing all the odds and opportunities at very different stages during the season. A great thing about college football futures is that they can be wagered on over the whole calendar year, with odds that bookmakers continuously update. So as soon as the season ends at the beginning of January, oddsmakers are publishing their opening future odds for the following season, and from that point on, the search for the best college football teams and players is on. 

Of course, the most popular college future market is the NCAA Division 1 Football Bowl Subdivision, also known as the FBS. A total of 125 teams are divided into ten conferences, and several independent schools do not have an affiliation. Some sportsbooks will set college football futures on every school that has a chance of winning the championship, while some other operators are keeping that list to a maximum of 50 teams, as some lower-tier teams realistically don’t have a competitive chance. 

The futures market doesn’t get too much attention during the spring, but things start to change during the summer when the student-athletes are back for the fall semester. At this point, there are coaching changes, suspensions, and injuries that always have a rather significant impact on the college football futures market. 

College Football Championship Game Odds

The future odds on the College Football Championship Game get lots of attention from bettors, especially when the season is up and running. Unlike other popular US sports, college football doesn’t have an automatic qualifying system for the playoffs. Because of this, only four teams will be able to play in the College Football Championship Game at the end of the regular season. 

A committee picks the top four teams, which then play each other in the semifinals. The winners of those games move on to the final. NCAAF Future odds on these four schools that will take part in the College Football Championship Game were available significantly earlier in the year, and as the regular season continues, oddsmakers are adjusting their odds based on who they believe have the best chances of playing in the championship. 

At the beginning of December, bettors will only have four teams to choose from, and, at this point, there isn’t a great deal of value in the championship game odds. Most of the time, to get the most out of NCCAF Futures, you need to place your bet at the right time during the season to get the most money back. Our experts are here to help you with this challenging decision with regular college football picks. 

How Do I Wager On College Football Playoff Championship Futures?

Betting on college football playoff championship futures is very simple. Lots of bettors call these “odds to win” bets or future wagers. Similarly to other bets, to be successful, bettors need to correctly select a team to win an event that will take place later on in the season, in this case, the College Football Championship. 

The money that has been staked will be tied up until there is a final outcome, with bettors receiving fixed odds when they place the bet. As far as college football is concerned, the most valuable odds are available before the season starts, when many schools’ potentials are still unnoticed. 

Figuring out how much you can win when wagering on the College Football Championship Game is simple math. You have to take the odds and multiply them by the amount wagered. Let’s say you are wagering on Ohio State to win at +300. It means that for every $100 that you bet, you will get $300 in profit in return if Ohio State wins.  

NCAAF Futures Odds and Payouts Explained

Futures odds tend to have higher payouts because it’s much harder to predict what will happen than with a single game bet. As a result of the large range of odds, values between +250 and +1100 are not unusual. 

Because futures betting is inherently challenging, punters can expect “plus-money” opportunities at the start of a season, even when betting on favourites. During the whole season, futures are available with odds that change based on how well the team is doing.

College Football Futures Betting: To Make Playoff Odds

The two top-ranked teams in college football are no longer competing for the national title. The College Football Playoff has been around for eight seasons and has so far produced some exciting games, but normally the same group of schools has participated, with perhaps one or two teams changing each season. 

All four of those teams—Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, and Ohio State—are likely to fight for a position in the Playoff, so that might be all four of them at once. These factors will be reflected in the NCAAF To Make Playoff Odds, but you could gamble on the one or two teams that surprise the nation and get to the final four.
