College Football Spreads

This season when you go to place your bets at the sportsbooks being perceptive and knowing the ins and outs of college football lines in our estimation is the biggest key for all rookie sports bettors. Most first or second year gamblers believe that the college football point spread is a handicap instilled by the bookmakers when in truth the college football betting lines are a way for sports books to try and created balanced betting on both teams. We have placed this weeks college football spreads below but before you place a bet this season you must understand how the betting lines work and the purpose the spreads serve.

??sfFor our example, we will use the 2005-06 national championship game between the Texas Longhorns and the USC Trojans. In this game Texas was installed as a 7 point underdog to the Trojans. The objective of this line was for the books to set a number that the general public would see value on whether you liked the Trojans or if you were a Longhorn bettor. The 7 point spread proved to be very appealing for both sides as the spread stayed right on 7 all the way to kickoff.

For weeks the sportsbooks collected numerous bets on both the Longhorns +7 and the USC Trojans -7. You all know what happened as the Longhorns pulled the 41-38 upset of the #1 team in the nation in one of the most exhilarating second halves of college football in the history of the game, in which NFLPicks.com and our members capped off a wonderful bowl season going 9-0 including a Texas +7 pick, click here for our college football picks. The next day we heard throughout the betting community that the lines makers did a terrible job in setting the line for Rose Bowl.

People that understand college football betting lines know that this was not the case as the books cleaned up taking a ton of action and accumulating the 10% vig from losing USC -7 bets. Because the books didn’t have to move the number in essence they were able to not sweat the result and not have a rooting interest in the game. The point is lines are not a handicap but a number put out to receive balanced action on both sides, and there are often many great betting opportunities available on a weekly basis, remember this next time you go to bet on the college football spreads. Without further ado here are this weeks college football point lines from one of the nations top books, bodog.
