Five Risky College Football Teams To Bet On To Win The National Championship

by WagerHome Blog on October 29, 2019

With only a few more games on the college football schedule, the race for the College Football Playoff is heating up. What is also heating up is futures betting for the college game in which team will win the national championship.

One of the good things about being a bookie with a solid Pay Per Head site, like the ones available at WagerHome.com, is that you can offer players futures bets all year long, and they can have betting action for the entire season until the national champion is crowned. The more bets you can offer your players, the better, as the more they wager, the more you will make.

There are not only many different college football bets to make but quite a few futures options as well. There are futures bets to who will win the national championship as well as conference winners, and which player will win the Heisman Trophy.

You need to let your players know all of their betting options, as there are many for college football, and this is especially the case for futures bets, which can be made all season long.

There are still a lot of teams with pretty good futures odds to win it all this season, so let’s take a look at five of the riskier bets with their odds.

LSU (6/1)

The Tigers are the top-ranked team in the nation, have the nation’s fourth-ranked offense, and second-ranked passing offense. While they may not seem like a risky bet, they are. Their big game is their next one, facing No. 2 Alabama on the road, and if they lose that game, they are likely out of the SEC title game, which means they will probably miss out on a CFP spot.

Alabama (5/2)

The Crimson Tide may also be a risky bet, as they not only face LSU in their next game but a tough Auburn team on the road in their regular-season finale. Auburn’s only losses this season have come against LSU and Florida, who are both ranked in the top 10.

Clemson (3/1)

Yeah, kind of strange picking Clemson and Alabama as risky bets. However, Clemson has not played a tough schedule, and while it should get a CFP bid, will they be ready? They narrowly beat a 4-4 North Carolina team by one point, and early in the season beat a ranked Texas A&M team, who are now out of the Top 25 and currently 5-3.

Penn State (16/1)

The main reason the fifth-ranked Nittany Lions are a risky bet is they still have to face third-ranked Ohio State, and that game is on the road.

Oregon (30/1)

The odds for seventh-ranked Oregon show the oddsmakers think they are a risky bet. The Ducks’ only loss was in their season opener, facing a solid Auburn team, and that game was their only one this season against a Top 25 team.

The futures odds will change from week to week, depending on how the teams are doing. You should let your players know this so they can jump in on some betting action.

Futures bets are something you have to offer your players, as well as all of the other options for college football. A PPH site with a lot of college football betting options is a good thing to have, as the sport is so popular, and there are so many betting options.

Again, the more betting options for your players, the more bets they can make, and the more money will be in your pocket.

by Wager Home on September 28, 2019

It is the greatest time of year. All weekend long, you can find football everywhere and, for bettors looking to increase their bankrolls, the possibilities are almost endless.

Whether you are a bettor looking for value picks or an aspiring bookie searching for the best pay per head service, you will likely have your eye on this weekend’s action. There is plenty of it and a number of great options. Here’s a look at where you may be able to increase that bankroll.

List of NFL Unbeatens to Shrink

At least two of the NFL’s unbeatens are going down on Sunday. New England (3-0) travels to Buffalo (3-0) and the Kansas City Chiefs (3-0) take on the surprising unbeaten Detroit Lions (2-0-1).

The Chiefs are a 6.5-point road chalk with Sunday’s Total set at 54.5. Think about it. Kansas City’s offense indoors and the Lions might be without their top two cornerbacks – Darius Slay and Rashaan Melvin. Ouch!

The Patriots are another big road favorite, but bettors should look to New England’s recent record as a road favorite. As a single-digit road favorite, the Patriots were 1-5. They were 0-3 when favored by 6-9 points away from home. Add in this interesting tidbit: The Patriots are 17-0 in their last 17 games against first- or second-year quarterbacks.

The Patriots also play a lot of man coverage. In fact, they have the second-highest usage rate for man coverage in the league. Bills QB Josh Allen averages 8.0 yards per attempt against zone coverage but just 6.6 yards per attempt against man. Hmmmm?

Get all your NFL odds here.

Double-Digit Values in College Football

There are some double-digit spreads this weekend in college football that should entice bettors and price per head services alike. Take No. 21 USC traveling to No. 17 Washington. The Huskies are a 10.5-point- home favorite. One would expect a closer game between two ranked opponents playing a huge conference game.

But, the Trojans are down to their final healthy scholarship quarterback, Matt Fink. He came on last week in relief of Kedon Slovis to pull an upset of Utah. Saturday will be the first-ever start for Fink, a 6-3, 200-pound junior. On the road against a defense that gives up just 18 points a game, it could get ugly for USC.

Another big value game involves fifth-ranked Ohio State traveling to Lincoln to take on Nebraska. The Cornhuskers are 3-1 and played the Buckeyes extremely tough a year ago, but this season Nebraska is a 17-point home underdog.

Sure Ohio State has won its last 10 games by an average of 25 points, but the Cornhuskers, under second-year head coach Scott Frost, need a program win and this would be it.

Virginia traveling to No. 10 Notre Dame is another matchup of ranked teams with another double-digit favorite. The home Fighting Irish are favored by 10.5 points. Virginia head coach Bronco Mendenhall is slowly building something really good at Virginia. Notre Dame was on the other end of the stick last week as a double-digit road dog at Georgia. The Irish covered in a 23-17 loss.

It could be the Cavaliers turn this week to do the same. Virginia allows just 75 rushing yards and 263.8 total yards per game. They slow opponent down and have allowed over 17 points just once in their last five games.

College or professional, there are a numerous games this weekend where bettors can find a nugget. Get in on the action or ramp up your own bookie business with a pay per head free trial. You’ll be glad you did after this weekend.
