HOW TO BET COLLEGE FOOTBALL

How To Bet College Football
by bangthebook.com

NCAA College Football is by far what I consider the hardest sports to handicap, wager on and be successful in. It is covered better by local affiliates then national affiliates and thus the best information is often left uncovered. The list of games is long and the new faces and game plans almost impossible to keep up with. In this article I suggest some tips to help you get started in what could prove to be a very difficult season.

Get some help: This is important and I have listed it first for a reason. There are too many teams in division one college football and if you try to handicap too many games you will get dizzy by the amount of information you can find. Bookmark some local affiliates and newspapers. They cover this team every single day and know the team. This should be the first place for you to go for information. Forget ESPN and the other national markets, they get information form these local papers and don't cover it as well as they could. Cut out the middle man and get right to the information that is important. You can also visit www.bangthebook.com for daily information from cappers around the net.

Pick your conferences: It is best to try and specialize with a certain conference. Then you will get to know the players, coaches and schemes that are important to handicapping. It is better to specialize on a handful of teams then to guess on over one hundred teams in the NCAA.

Know your player roster: Returning starters are huge in college football and in the early weeks of college football this is all you will hear about. The assumption is returning starters know the system and each other and will play better. This is true but don't ignore the new players especially with bigger schools. These teams recruit heavy and have great systems something a talented young player can excel in.

Do not chase and stay away from prime time: Big games especially on television are hard to stay away from, but try it. You will often find these games have tougher lines then small market games. Knowing the small market teams may not be exciting, but it will pay off. Try not to chase after a tough day of college football. The main reason is simple, it will be either a tough prime time game with strict lines or a small market game on the west coast about a team you know nothing about. This is a recipe for disaster.

Rivalry’s do mean something: In college athletics rivalry games are what it is all about and records mean nothing. This sets up for let downs in games before the big game and after a big win especially by a team that won as an underdog. I could write for days on this subject but the key thing to remember is that the schedule is important and so are certain games.

In a nutshell I want to stress how tough college football is, but if you go about it the right way you can make some money. Remember your fundamentals of sports wagering and some of the tips I discussed in this article and you will set yourself up to succeed.
