Four Reasons Why LSU Will Win the 2020 College Football Playoff

by WagerHome Blog on January 7, 2020

It is the College Football Playoff matchup we were all hoping to see: Last year’s freshman phenom, Trevor Lawrence, and the defending national champion Clemson Tigers vs. this season’s out-of-nowhere Heisman winner, Joe Burrow, and the offensive juggernaut that is the LSU Tigers.

It is entirely possible that the national championship game next Monday night will feature the top picks in the next two NFL drafts in Burrow and Lawrence. That’s how much star power and talent will be on the field. A quarterback rivalry born in 2020 may be a football storyline for the next 15 years.

With this kind of a matchup and this much-expected action, it is the perfect time to make sure your bookmaking services are top of the line and that you’re using a pay per head service that’s up to the task.

At, you can get four free weeks to try it before making any commitments.

As for the game itself, we like LSU to win for the following reasons.

Heisman Joe

Burrow won’t be the only great quarterback on the field Monday night, but he is, without a doubt, the quarterback who is playing the best. In LSU’s semifinal win over Oklahoma, he set numerous records and finished the game with 493 yards, seven touchdowns, and an eye-popping efficiency rating of 239.77.

All were season highs, and as they say in football, it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish, and no one is finishing this season better than Burrow.

Clemson’s Defense

The Tigers did hold Ohio State to just 23 points and held them to a season-low third-down conversion rate of 38 percent. But they also gave up 516 yards, and that point total would have been much higher if not for a pair of costly interceptions thrown by Justin Fields.

Burrow will do a better job of protecting the football than Fields did, and with yardage totals like that, the points will come. The Clemson defense is very good, but even with two weeks to prepare for LSU, it won’t be able to slow the LSU offense down.

Coach O is a Stabilizer

Clemson has the experience. Playing for a national title is old hat for the Tigers, who have won two titles in the last three years.

college football playoff

For LSU, this is all new, and perhaps a little intimidating. But if anyone can keep this team grounded for 60 minutes of football, it’s head coach Ed Orgeron and his LSU staff.

This team will not get too high following its win over Oklahoma, or too nervous playing for the title. Coach O will make sure they stay focused and ready.

Receiving Corps

Burrow doesn’t have a great Heisman season without top weapons, which is exactly what he has in wide receivers Ja’Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson. Chase has 1,559 yards and 18 TDs this season, but if you slow him down – like what happened against Oklahoma when he caught just two passes – Jefferson steps up.

Jefferson had 14 catches for 227 yards and four touchdowns against the Sooners. You might contain one or the other. There is no way you can stop them both.

‘Tis The Season To Bet These Five College Football Bowl Games

by WagerHome Blog on December 24, 2019

As the Christmas carols say, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. The NFL is winding down, and the playoffs are gearing up. And if you love college football, we have non-stop bowl action nearly every day over the next two weeks.

It’s also the perfect time of year to try out pay per head software for your bookmaking business. offers four free weeks to try it before any commitments are required.

On to the games, and the five college bowl games we like as best bets.

Michigan State Spartans -3.5 vs. Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Wake Forest has a great offense when healthy. But with the bulk of the Demon Deacons’ wide receivers banged up, Michigan State should be able to slow them down.

The Spartans won their final two games of the season to become bowl-eligible, so they are the hot hand. They also come from the better conference that historically does well in the Pinstripe Bowl. The smart money is on Michigan State.

Penn State Nittany Lions -7 vs. Memphis Tigers

Another Big Ten team that is battle-tested because it hails from one of the most competitive conferences in the country. Memphis had a terrific season – in fact, the best season in school history – but its biggest wins were against SMU and Cincinnati, and it lost to Temple.

Penn State, on the other hand, played Ohio State tough and has too much defense for Memphis to handle. Penn State covers in the Cotton Bowl.

Virginia Tech Hokies -2.5 vs. Kentucky Wildcats

Defense is also the order of the day at the Belk Bowl, with both Virginia Tech and Kentucky boasting defenses in the top 20 nationally. Virginia Tech is 5-1 against the spread in its last six games, with the lone blemish coming against Virginia in the final game of the season.

On the other side, Kentucky is 6-1 ATS in its last seven games. But the Wildcats feature a predominantly run-first offense, and the Hokies will keep it contained. Look for Virginia Tech to cover.

Minnesota Golden Gophers +8.5 vs. Auburn Tigers

Auburn already won its most important game of the year by knocking off Alabama. Will it be able to get up for another big game a month later? We think that will be a tough ask, and especially against a very good Minnesota team.

The Gophers are 6-2 against the spread in the last eight games they’ve been the underdog, and we think that goes to 7-2 with a strong showing at the Outback Bowl.

Oregon Ducks +2.5 vs. Wisconsin Badgers

The Pac-12 champions in the Rose Bowl as underdogs? And this is a very good Pac-12 champion that wasn’t too far removed from making the College Football Playoff.

Wisconsin is also very good and ranks 10th in points allowed this season. But Oregon just put up points on a great defense in Utah, and the West Coast team will get things done in Pasadena. Take the Ducks and the points.

Three Favorites To Bet For NCAA Conference Championship Weekend

by WagerHome Blog on December 7, 2019

After this weekend we will know which four college football teams still have a shot at the national championship, and which teams have had their dreams end. It is one of the best weekends on the NCAA football calendar, and if you currently run your bookmaking operation with a pay per head site, then you are expecting a big weekend of action. And if you haven’t yet signed up for a PPH site, gives you four free weeks to try it out.

As for this weekend’s games, these are the top three favorites expected to win their conference championships and cover the point spreads.

LSU Tigers (-7) vs. Georgia Bulldogs

It wasn’t that long ago that LSU was sitting in the No. 1 spot in the College Football Playoff rankings. But even though it didn’t falter, it dropped to No. 2. If the Tigers can impress enough against a top team like Georgia, they just might be able to climb back up to No. 1.

I expect the Tigers to have the motivation and incentive to come out strong, put the hammer down on offense, and never let up.

Georgia does have one of the best defenses in the country, but scoring points for them has been a little bit tougher to accomplish. The Bulldogs have plenty of motivation for this game, too, knowing that a win will get them into the Playoff. But LSU is the superior team and having the better season. It will win the SEC Championship and cover the spread.

Ohio State Buckeyes (-16.5) vs. Wisconsin Badgers

Ohio State got to the No. 1 position in the College Football Playoff because it is simply annihilating opponents. Consider that when they fell behind 6-0 last week to Michigan, it was the Buckeyes’ largest deficit of the season. They, of course, went on to beat Michigan by 29 points, the 11th time in 12 games they’ve won by at least 24 points.

They have nine wins now against the spread, and with all the incentive in the world to stay No. 1 in the playoff rankings, there will be no let-up against Wisconsin. The Badgers are good, and they earned their way into the Big Ten Championship Game. But don’t forget that they’ve already lost to Ohio State this year, 38-7.

Take the Buckeyes to win big.

Oklahoma Sooners (-9) vs. Baylor Bears

It was just three weeks ago that Oklahoma and Baylor played one of the best games of the year. Baylor jumped out to a huge 28-3 lead, only to watch Jalen Hurts lead a furious second-half comeback and take the win.

Baylor got its lead because of turnovers by the Sooners, and that is something that I expect to be cleaned up for the rematch. Also, there won’t be any looking past the Bears this go-round. An impressive win by Oklahoma keeps it in contention for a playoff berth, and that alone will keep this team motivated for the full 60 minutes.

Oklahoma will win another Big 12 Championship and cover the spread.

Four Underdogs To Bet In Week 14 Of College Football

by WagerHome Blog on November 26, 2019

Thanksgiving week is upon us, and that means in a season already jam-packed with football, we actually get even more. Indeed it is something to be thankful for, as is the freedom to run your own bookmaking service through a Pay Per Head site run by You get four free weeks when you sign up, and just in time for the best time of the sports year – football playoffs.

With so many games on the menu this week, there are so many values to be had. And these are the four college football underdogs that are the best plays this week.

Wisconsin Badgers at Minnesota Golden Gophers (+4)

The Big Ten West title is on the line in this one and with it a trip to the Big Ten Championship Game to play Ohio State next week. It’s a surprise to see Minnesota open as a home dog. They haven’t lost a game at home yet this season and have won four straight at home against the spread. Meanwhile, Wisconsin is just 1-4 against the spread in its last five games, which includes losses at Illinois and Ohio State.

This will be a tight game between against two teams jockeying for a shot to play for the conference title, and I want Minnesota and the points.

Texas A&M Aggies (+16) at LSU Tigers

LSU is headed to the SEC Championship Game and a possible trip to the College Football Playoff. Other than getting the win, this game is meaningless. LSU no longer has to show its dominance. I think the Tigers let down a little, and, for the third straight week, they fail to cover the spread.

On the other side, the Aggies just covered on the road at Georgia, and their defense is playing great, holding opponents under 20 points in each of their last three games. I think Texas A&M covers again. Take the 16 points.

Oklahoma Sooners at Oklahoma State Cowboys (+12)

At 9-2 against the spread this season, Oklahoma State has been one of the better plays all year long. Now it’s time for the annual tilt against arch-rival Oklahoma, and once again, I think the Cowboys keep this one close and cover the 12-point spread.

The Sooners, on the other hand, have been one of the worst teams to bet on this year, losing against the spread in four straight weeks and seven times overall. Three of their last four wins have been by a touchdown or less, and I think this game goes the same way. Take the Cowboys and the points.

Iowa State Cyclones at Kansas State Wildcats (+3)

Kansas State is another of those teams that have played above the spread almost all season long. They are 8-3 ATS and have won five of their last six ATS. Those wins include outright victories against Oklahoma, Texas Tech, and Mississippi State, and a cover against Texas.

In each of its last three games in which Iowa State was the favorite, it failed to cover. And just last week as big 26-point favorites against Kansas, the Cyclones only won by 10. I was surprised to see Kansas State open as home dogs in this one, so my money is on the Wildcats and the points.

Top Five NCAA Football Teams To Bet In Week 13

by WagerHome Blog on November 18, 2019

If you run your own Pay Per Head bookmaking site, or if you just like to bet college football, this is vital information for you. This is the list of our top five college football plays for this week.

Michigan Wolverines (-8) at Indiana Hoosiers

It has the making of a trap game. Michigan just beat Michigan State and has Ohio State on the horizon. But even though this isn’t a rivalry game, the Wolverines will continue to dominate.

Their last three wins have been by 34, 31, and 31 points. Expect them to keep rolling in this one and win big over Indiana and improve to 7-4 against the spread.

UCLA Bruins (+13) at USC Trojans

UCLA was terrible to start the season, but it has now won three of four Pac-12 games, and Chip Kelly’s job appears to be safe. The Bruins were beaten up pretty badly by Utah, but I expect a bounce back in the battle of Los Angeles.

The Bruins beat USC outright last year, and getting 13 points for this season’s battle is too much to pass up. USC drops to 6-6 ATS after this week’s tight cross-town rivalry.

Oklahoma State Cowboys (-7.5) at West Virginia Mountaineers

West Virginia has been up and down all season when it comes to performing against the spread at 4-5-1. And at home, the Mountaineers have covered the spread just once.

On the other side, Oklahoma State continues to provide great value at 8-2 ATS, which includes a 4-1 mark on the road. For that reason alone, lay the points and take the Cowboys.

Penn State Nittany Lions at Ohio State Buckeyes (-18.5)

Ohio State’s offense is one of the surest bets in the country, having topped the 50-point mark five times so far this season. Penn State will be the highest-ranked team they’ve faced so far, but the Buckeyes haven’t had a margin of victory below 24 points yet this season.

At 8-2 against the spread and cruising to a possible spot in the College Football Playoff, Ohio State keeps its foot on that gas and wins this game by at least three touchdowns.

Texas A&M Aggies (+13.5) at Georgia Bulldogs

Even though it has lost a game this season, Georgia is also eyeing the possibility of making it into the College Football Playoff. The Bulldogs have clinched the SEC East and have already punched their ticket for the conference title game but are banged up on offense. They may be in line for a bit of a letdown as they try and get healthy for postseason play.

Meanwhile, since losing to Alabama in October, the Aggies have been rolling, with four straight wins and a 30-6 thumping of South Carolina, the team that gave Georgia its lone loss. I don’t think Texas A&M has enough to win this game, but I do think it has an excellent chance to cover the spread. Take the points.

These are the games I’m playing this week, and the teams your PPH clients are likely to play. And if you don’t yet have your own Pay Per Head site, remember that you can sign up for one at and get four free weeks.

Top Three NCAA Football Bets in Week 12

by WagerHome Blog on November 16, 2019

Even if you haven’t made the decision yet to open your own Pay Per Head bookmaking service, it’s always better to be in the loop on who the hot teams are and what the best bets are. And, as the NCAA football season heats up for the stretch run to the College Football Playoff, this is where the action is.

Rivalries and trips to conference championship games hanging in the balance highlight our top bets this weekend.

Minnesota (+3) at Iowa

Much more is at stake this year than the Floyd of Rosedale pig trophy, awarded to the winner of this game since 1935. The Golden Gophers are in the top 10 and 9-0 for the first time in 115 years and hold out hope that they can get into the Big Ten Championship Game and into the College Football Playoff. And yet they come into this game as the underdog.

Iowa has struggled offensively against Top 25 teams, managing a total of 37 points in three games against ranked opponents. Meanwhile, the Gophers offense is rolling, with more than 37 points scored per game. There is simply too much at stake, and Minnesota is playing too well at the moment, to believe it won’t be ready for this one.

Take the hot team and the points.

Oklahoma (-9) at Baylor

It is true that Oklahoma has had some struggles on the road. They lost to Kansas State and were very slow starters at Kansas. And just a week ago, they squeaked past Iowa State by one point at home. But in all of those games, Oklahoma put up points, and that is something Baylor has struggled to do. Last week, the Bears managed just nine points in regulation against TCU.

Expect Jalen Hurts to come out and make a statement with his performance in Waco. But also remember that the closer we get to the playoff selection, the more teams want to record an impressive win. Oklahoma will not let up in this one as they try to make their case to the committee.

Oklahoma goes big over Baylor and covers the nine-point spread.

Navy (+7.5) at Notre Dame

If there’s one area where Notre Dame has struggled, it’s run defense. Michigan went for more than 300 on the ground against them. Louisville nearly hit 250. New Mexico also topped 200 yards. And what’s the one thing Navy does best? Run the football, to the tune of 6.08 yards per carry.

Navy is 6-2 against the spread this season, and there’s every reason to believe that will improve to 7-2 after this week. The Fighting Irish do have familiarity against the triple-option, but Navy will still control the clock and eat up yards at will, and it will keep this game close.

Navy is 5-1 ATS in its last six vs. Notre Dame. That trend continues. Take Navy and the points.

These are the hot games your PPH clients are likely to jump on this weekend, and the games we recommend you play yourself. And if you haven’t yet launched your own Pay Per Head site, check out the package offered by and sign up today.

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, 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.

Finding Value in a Big Football Weekend

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. It has actually already begun with Thursday night action in both college and professional football. It continues with a full slate of college games on Saturday and the NFL on Sunday and Monday night.

With WagerHome’s Server Security, never worry about their system going down on a Sunday again

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.

Kedon Slovis left last week's game with a head injury

Kedon Slovis left last week’s game with a head injury

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.
