Evaluating Quarterbacks - NCAA QB's are quite a bit different than pro quarterbacks and they should be treated differently in your approach to betting on college football. Top signal callers get lots of media attention. Sometimes this leads to overblown valuations which then leads to inflated point spreads. Loot talks about what to look for in a college QB.
Pick Good or Bad Teams? Loot dives into the controversial topic of whether we should be looking at betting good or bad teams. There's an old saying that says "good teams win and bad teams cover" and many a bettor has made a living following that advice. Its not always true though, as evidenced by a Boise State squad that had a great run for many years, often times as 30 point favorites!
The Zen of College Football Betting - As college football bettors, we spend most of our time and effort on handicapping different things on the field of play. Over the course of the season, we can lose touch with ourselves a bit--both mentally and emotionally. The college football season will test the limits of your patience and overall composure. This article helps break down some of the different spiritual elements at play and how a college football bettor can help keep himself level during the season.
Pay Attention to Offensive Linemen - This is an often overlooked facet of college football betting. The same can be said for pro football betting as well. It's not really something one thinks about because such a big deal is made of QB's, RB's and Wide Receivers. How many times have you made a bet, turned on the game only to be dumbfounded by how a stud defensive lineman/linebacker is ripping through the other team's offensive line? Get proactive! Know ahead of time which teams have good/bad OL's!
Things to Watch Out For - Keep in mind that these are just kids playing this game. Many who are fresh out of high school. Prep level football players likely traveled across town to play their games. Division I college football players are hopping flights, staying in hotels, doing homework, going to classes etc. All of these factors can result in fatigue. Loot also talks about general consensus and how it factors into betting on games.
Food For Thought - Momentum and inertia in college football is real. It's different than the pros though. When a struggling college football team is struggling, it doesn't mean that they're going to have a bounceback. In fact, often times they continue to struggle. Loot talks about this important variable as well as college football sandwich games and how weather affects certain players/teams.
Trends and Public Opinion - These are two variables that can be poisonous to your bankroll and can/will keep you from getting into the winner's circle. Loot advises readers how to properly handle each topic.
Handicapping College Football Injuries - One man goes down and another steps up to take his place. This second stringer will obviously have somewhat less talent otherwise he'd be the starter right? Well, kind of. Loot takes a deeper look into this situation and talks about positions where this matters and doesn't matter quite as much.
Betting on College Football Teams That You Think are Due - NCAA football is quite a bit different than betting on the pros. If a college foots squad has a bad offensive line or bad secondary, there's a better than good chance that they're going to struggle all season long. They simply don't have the option of replacing players via the free agent or trade route. The backups are likely younger and inexperienced which doesn't fill the hole. In college football betting, it could be said that a situation "is what it is" and will remain that way until the next season and possibly longer. So when you get that feeling that a team is due, put the kabosh on it!
