NCAAF Schedules

The NCAA football schedule runs at basically the same time as the NFL, but the NCAA college football season perfectly complements its professional counterpart. The college football games are mostly aired on Saturday from the end of August to mid-December, followed by bowl games and capped by the national championship game just a week after New Year’s Day.

Unique to the NCAA football schedule are bowl games. These are postseason games played in the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) and usually pit the better teams against each other.

3 Tips Before Betting NCAA Football

Although NCAA football is still football and has mostly the same rules as the NFL, it can differ widely. Keep in mind some tips before engaging:

  1. College sports, especially college football, can be volatile. Even if juggernaut programs like Alabama and Georgia are powerful and win consistently, they are prone to getting upset. Do not blindly throw money at their moneyline as their NCAAF Odds can be at ridiculous prices.
  2. Focus on the lines: Learn how to convert the odds into win probability and determine if you are comfortable wagering cash for this team’s shot at winning (or covering the spread). Look up the matchups and check the teams’ records on the spread before you bet on NCAA football.
  3. Check the weather. Most teams play outdoors so the weather and field conditions will affect win probabilities and scoring rates. A snowy day in Wisconsin will play out differently than a hot, sunny day in Florida, especially if a team is not used to playing under certain conditions.
