- First Team to Score

- Will the First Score be a TD or FG
- Who Will Win the 1st Quarter, 2nd Quarter, 3rd Quarter and 4th Quarter
Those are just some of the types of prop bets that you can wager on during the course of a college football game. You can also wager on certain outcomes before the start of the season such as who will win the championship, who will win a given division and a few other futures bets. College football is a really good sport to wager on because of the huge spacing in the team’s abilities. Often you’ll be able to find several bets each week where a weak team is playing a strong team and the spread isn’t overly high.
If you want to take on a little more risk with the possibility of more rewards then you can also bet on parlays which are really popular in college football due to the big number of games played every weekend of the season. A parlay bet is when you bet on multiple outcomes on one ticket and in order to win the parlay, you need to have all correct predictions. Parlays have different payouts based on the odds of the game and the number of games you put on your parlay. It’s definitely worth playing parlays every week though because even if you hit one a year with 7+ games it could make the difference between a good and bad year.
College football is a great sport to wager on because the sport is so widespread competition wise and it’s fairly simple to find teams who should easily cover spreads. With most games being played on Saturday in college football it won’t disturb you from betting on the NFL on Sundays and it also gives you more opportunities to make some money.
