Bet on the moneyline

Upsets in college football happen all the time. Although we shouldn’t search for upsets like Appalachian State over Michigan, which happened in 2007, we shouldn’t turn a blind eye to potential moneyline upsets when they present themselves. 

In Week 1 this season, as an example, Ohio State is a -13.5 road chalk against Minnesota. The Golden Gophers start 10 seniors on offense, including the entire O-line, their quarterback, running back, tight-end, and 2-of-3 wide receivers.

Sure, the Buckeyes should win. But anybody who doesn’t believe the Gophers have a shot on the moneyline doesn’t know Big Ten college football. 

Bet against the spread

Let’s stick with Minnesota versus Ohio State game. When it comes to ATS bets, the overlay versus underlay rule applies. So, for example, if after you’ve handicapped the contest you believe the Buckeyes should be -15 favorites instead of -13.5, Ohio State is the play.

But if you think the Gophers keep it close enough to potentially win the game straight up, take the 13.5 points on the underdog.

Use the overlay–underlay rule for every bet you make. Think about the spread and whether it’s fair. Notre Dame is -9.5 against Florida State in Week 1. 

Will the Irish cover that even though Ian Book is a New Orleans Saint in the NFL? Or will the Seminoles show they’re on their way back to respectability?

Spread around a few future bets

Check out a couple of future bets, to win the National Championship and to win the Heisman, along with underdog plays.

Make sure to do your own handicapping before betting on any underdog to win any future bet. By backing a few dogs at big odds, you can increase your chances to make a huge score. 

Look for vulnerable favorites

Instead of looking for underdogs that can win straight up or cover the spread, look for favorites that may play worse than expected. A possible play in Week 1 could be UCLA -17 against Hawaii.

Do you really believe UCLA will challenge USC and Oregon in the Pac 12 this season? If not, they probably won’t cover such a massive spread against the Warriors.
