Every week of the college football season, I make at least one college football parlay bet. There is something magical about watching many games at the same time and having action in all of them. If you are new to NCAA college football betting, here is some information to help you.
Let’s start by talking about the difference between bookmakers when a game falls in number. Some bookmakers push ties, which means that your parlay card is reduced to the next number. So imagine you have a 5-team college football parlay and the Ohio State Buckeyes (-3) win by 3. Since it’s a tie, the card would be reduced to the next level. If you are playing a “tie win” card, you would win the bet.
College football parlay cards can have both sides and totals. A side is when you choose sides, like the Michigan Wolverines. And the total is when you bet less or more than the total number of points scored for both teams.
Unsurprisingly, you can increase your pay by adding more equipment. The risk also increases. While most bookmakers tend to have the same payouts, some offer special payout amounts.
Charging for college parlays is fun. Here are some common payment amounts:
Parlay of 3 country teams 6-1
Parlay of 4 country teams 11-1
Parlay of 5 country teams 20-1
There are also teasers that are somewhat popular with sports bettors. They are easier to win, but pay much less. Many like betting teasers because the lines are more favorable for sports bettors. As an example, you could see the Washington Huskies as a 14-point dog on the royal line and a 21-point dog in a teaser. As you can see, these bets are much easier to win.
Do you know what is the best college football parlay bet you can make? There is a “best” bet and many sports bettors don’t realize it. Whether you’re betting on teasers, semicircles, or straight parlays, you need to know what you’re doing to get ahead.
