College football betting lines

Top options for betting on college football games include wagering on which team will win the game outright via the moneyline, the point spread and over/under on the total points scored in the contest. Here’s a look at how the top college football bets work:   

Moneyline odds

When betting on the moneyline, your goal is to pick the winner of the game. There are no points or margins of victory to be concerned with, just straight-up winners and losers. Sportsbooks will provide odds for the two possible choices: negative for the favorite and — in most cases — positive for the underdog. The span between the numbers indicates the perceived closeness of the matchup.

Point spread odds

The point spread bet brings more of a strategic element into college football betting. Sportsbooks will provide a line for each game, which essentially serves as a handicap for the favorite or a boost for the underdog. You can wager that either the favorite will win the game by more than the spread number or the underdog will win the game by any score or lose by less than the spread number. 

Over/under odds

Sportsbooks will also set a line for total scoring in each college football game. Bettors can then place an over/under wager on that number. If you expect there to be more scoring than the line suggests, you choose over, while under is the choice if you anticipate that the total points will be less than that amount.  

College football futures

College football futures betting provides the option to wager on season-long outcomes. Odds come out over the offseason and remain active from there as the numbers shift in response to betting action and other factors. For college football, the top futures bet is wagering on the winner of the next national championship. Looking ahead to next season, Georgia, a team that missed out on the College Football Playoff last season, is the favorite to win it all. Ohio State and Texas are next in the latest betting odds.

Other college football futures 

Beyond betting on which team will win the next national championship, here are some of the other top college football futures:

Heisman Trophy

One option is trying to pick the player who will win college football’s most prestigious individual award. Early betting lines for next season have Georgia QB Carson Beck and Texas QB Quinn Ewers as the top two Heisman Trophy favorites.


You can also bet on the winners of all of the top conferences once odds come out over the offseason. Using the Big Ten as an example, Ohio State is the favorite to win. Next up is Oregon, a team that will be making its conference debut after moving over from the Pac-12.

Regular season wins

Another option you might find are over/under bets on how many regular season wins the top college programs will have. Odds come out over the offseason. Just a handful of teams, including Georgia and Ohio State, currently have lines of double-digit wins.
