What Are NCAAF Picks Against The Spread

The team you like is favored to win big, and you like that bet but don’t want to risk $900 to win $100. That’s where our expert college football picks against the spread come in to play. Betting against the spread in college football means not only are you betting on a team to win, you need them to win by a certain amount in order to cash your ticket. Say Alabama has a moneyline of -900 against Texas A&M. That equates to point spread of about 16 points, meaning Alabama would need to win by 17 or more for you to win. You only risk $110 to win $100, which might make you more comfortable.

You can also do the reverse. Maybe you like Texas A&M in that game. A $100 bet would win you $510 on the moneyline. Not a bad return. But if you’d rather be a bit more cautious, you can take Texas A&M and the points, giving you a much better chance at cashing a ticket, even if it is for a smaller payout. Check out free odds calculator to determine which bet makes the most sense for you.
