A point spread allows bettors to wager on the margin of victory in a college football game. A -14 favorite needs to win by 15 points or more to cover the spread. A +14 underdog needs to lose by less than 14 points, or win the game, to cover the spread. A minus sign indicates that team is the favorite; a plus sign indicates that team is the underdog.
A total (also known as an over/under) allows bettors to choose whether the number of points by both teams will be over or under the listed amount. If a college football total is set at 56, bettors can wager on the combined score going over or under 56 points.
A moneyline requires bettors to pick the winner of the game, but the odds are adjusted according to each team’s ability. A -400 favorite is expected to win the game, so bettors need to risk $4 for every $1 they want to win. A +300 underdog gives bettors the chance to win $3 for every $1 risked.
How do I read college football point spreads?
A point spread in college football betting is a wager on the margin of victory.
Let’s say Ohio State is slightly better than Michigan in a given year, and playing at home in Columbus. The Buckeyes might be listed at -6.5, meaning they’re expected to win by that amount. For anyone betting on Ohio State to win their bet, the Buckeyes need to win by 7 or more points.
Anyone betting on Michigan either needs the Wolverines to lose by 1-6 points, or win the game.
What is an over/under in college football?
A total in college football, also known as an over/under, is a bet on the total points that both teams combine to score in a game.
That Ohio State-Michigan total might be set at 54. If the two teams combine for 55 or more points, the game goes “over” and anyone who bet the over wins their bet. If they combine for 54 points or fewer, it goes “under” and anyone who bet the under wins their bet.
College football totals can vary wildly -- an Oklahoma-Oklahoma State game with little defense and two explosive offenses might have a total in the 80’s. A Michigan State-Rutgers game with no offense and plenty of defense could have a total in the high 30’s.
How do moneylines work for college football?
In college football, moneylines are less popular than the point spread, but they’re still among the three most popular betting options. A moneyline bet is a wager that asks us to simply pick the winner of the game. But the odds are adjusted for each team’s ability. Let’s say Ohio State is -250 on the moneyline against Michigan. OSU is expected to win. Michigan might be a corresponding +200 (and the difference is the juice or vig, the tax a sportsbook collects on each bet).
American moneylines odds are based entirely around winning $100 -- so a $250 bet on Ohio State would net $100 (plus the original bet back) if the Buckeyes win. A $100 bet on Michigan would yield $200 (plus your original bet back).
Moneyilne odds scale up and down so you don’t always need to bet $100. Use our odds converter to see how much a $30 bet at -250 would yield (spoiler, it’s $12).
