Freshman Money? Time For CFB Betting!

The 2019 college football season is about to kickoff. With excitement soaring across the nation, this one is going to be special. The successful taking down of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) now allow for sports betting to be legalized on a state-by-state basis. 

Many states, 12 to be more specifically, have taken full advantage of the new regulations and have implemented sports betting within their borders. A couple states have jumped ahead, as you can now find online sports betting in New Jersey, as well as online betting sites in Pennsylvania. Other states only offer sports gambling on land-based casinos, but should have it available online soon.

Back to football now, as we enter the freshman year of sports betting in college football.

Betting on future odds is fun and there is a great opportunity for a big payout. A lot of football fans may think the NFL has too many teams that can actually win the Super Bowl. College football isn't quite the same. With a limited number of schools that can actually go all the way, betting in college football future odds may be a shortcut to cash.

The 2019 season is no different. Looking at Vegas odds at the time of this writing, only two teams have a big chance to win the national championship. If you want to be extremely positive, make it six teams, but the real chances are somehow limited to the two teams that played in the big game last season.

The Alabama Crimson Tide at 5/2 are not the clear-cut favorite to win the national championship game to be played on January 6th, 2020. The Clemson Tigers at 9/4 are a real good bet, particularly if you considered how talented QB Trevor Lawrence really is. Calling this "too close to call" is probably the best as the odds are changing on a daily basis and you can find sites listing Alabama as favorite, as well as other sites listing Clemson as favorite.

The Georgia Bulldogs round out the top three at 6/1 and can be considered the strongest change of preventing another 'Bama/Clemson title game. However, it seems like the gap between Alabama and Crimson vs. the rest of the college football field is getting wider and wider.

Based on odds, Michigan Wolverines (14/1), Oklahoma Sooners (14/1), and Ohio State Buckeyes (16/1), could be attractive bets for future odds, but in reality they are a long-shot. Outside these six teams, avoid betting on future odds as LSU Tigers are the next best odds at 25/1, but would be more realistically if listed at 250/1.

Of course, you can try to place wagers on many teams on a game by game basis every weekend, but for future odds, this season seems to be a two-horse race.

Another popular bet for college football is who is going to win the 2019 Heisman Trophy. "Shockingly," it seems like this is another two-horse race with Trevor Lawrence (Clemson) and Tua Tagovailoa (Alabama) both sharing odds at 3/1. Justin Fields (Ohio State) and Jalen Hurts (Oklahoma) at 12/1 are the best of the rest options, but barring any injury, it seems like the Heisman should go to one of the two favorites.
