Whether you’re looking for college football point spreads, totals, moneylines, quarter and halftime lines, props, or conference championship and College Football Playoff futures, FOX Bet is the place to be for online college football betting.
College football betting is available all season long, from the opening weekend games in August through conference championships and bowl games, culminating with the College Football Playoff Championship in January.
A point spread represents a number set by oddsmakers to provide a numerical advantage or disadvantage based on the margin of victory or defeat for a given team. The team that is considered the “favorite” (noted with a “-” sign preceding the number) would need to win the game by a certain number of points while the team that is considered the “underdog” (noted with a “+” sign preceding the number) is given a margin by which the team can lose the game but still “cover” the point spread.
To use an example, if the line is Alabama (-5) vs. Clemson (+5): a winning against-the-spread wager on Alabama would require them to win by more than 5 points. Clemson is the winning wager in this scenario if the team either wins outright or loses the game by 1, 2, 3 or 4 points. If Alabama wins by exactly 5 points, the game is considered a “push” and bettors on both sides of the spread get their wagers refunded.
If you don’t get a bet in before kickoff, don’t worry. You’ll still have a chance to get in on the action. Live betting, which is sometimes referred to as in-game betting, refers to the ability to wager on many of the same types of wagers summarized above after a game has already begun. All of the same fundamentals apply, but with odds, lines and spreads constantly being updated in response to how a game is unfolding.
Future bets are offered for bettors wishing to take a longer view. Odds are updated and available throughout a season in a wide range of categories. Examples of future bets include (but are not limited to):
