Vegas Odds On NCAAF 2013
The Las Vegas odds on NCAA College Football games in 2013 will hold a special level of significance. This is the last year that the NCAA Bowl Championship Series (BCS) is used to decide a college football winner, and more than $2 billion will be gambled on the title game alone. This year's Division I college football action kicks off on Thursday, August 29 when the South Carolina Gamecocks host their next-door neighbor North Carolina Tar Heels at 6 pm EST, in just one of a whopping 17 games on the schedule. A full 120 NCAAF college teams make up the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), the highest level of collegiate football competition in the United States. In 2013 it appears that once again the Alabama Crimson Tide is probably the cream of that crop in college football, and they also benefit from one of the easiest schedules in the entire FBS.
The Ohio State Buckeyes and Oregon Ducks join the Stanford Cardinal and the Georgia Bulldogs as other possible NCAAF championship teams this year. The powerful Southeastern Conference owns the most championship teams in the 15 year FBS era, having gone 9 - 1 in NCAA Championship games. Some big games to look for this year include Alabama at Texas A&M on September 14, with the Crimson Tide looking for revenge against Johnny Football, and Oregon at Stanford on November 7, a game which could have national title championship implications. Other important games are Oklahoma State and Texas on November 16, UGA taking on Clemson on August 31 to open up ESPN's College Game Day for 2013, and Ohio State at Michigan on November 30.
About NCAAF College Football
We are currently in what is referred to as the modern college football era, which began way back in 1869. And ever since then, many fans have spiced up their college football viewing entertainment by placing a wager on the outcome of a particular contest. The Vegas odds on contests like Georgia Florida, dubbed the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, every year draw close scrutiny from the savvy gambler. These types of age-old rivalry games often see lines that do not truly reflect the competitive nature of the matchup, with underdogs consistently covering, and often times and winning outright.
To say that college football is popular as a spectator and gambling sport is an incredible understatement. Currently, there are a full 6 NCAA College Football teams which can seat more than 100,000 gameday fans, and many of the incredible athletes that play in these venues on Saturday will lineup for NFL teams on Sunday in the coming years. The transition from amateur college football player to professional National Football League employee is handled through the NFL Draft, and football enthusiasts can even place wagers on where the top first-round draft picks will go every year.
The fact that some college football fans remain dedicated and fervent supporters of their teams for many decades shows the love that these people have for their favorite college teams. There is just nothing like college football to get a heated sports discussion going between two fans of opposing rivals, and storied NCAA college football rivalries are at the heart of this billion-dollar industry. UCLA and USC are two major college football powers separated by only 12 miles, and they have been playing each other in one of the top college rivalries since 1929. Florida vs Florida State, BYU vs Utah, and Oregon vs Oregon State are just three of many excellent in-state rivalries college football offers as well.
The Army Navy game every year is a hotly contested battle which has been going since 1900, and the Auburn Alabama Iron Bowl matchup dates way back to 1893. But there is probably no better well known NCAA football rivalry than Ohio State and Michigan. This contest dates back to 1897, and since 1935 it has been each team's very last game of the season. Virtually every year this memorable matchup has something to say about who wins the Big Ten, and many years also offers national title implications.
With college athletes only lasting as many as four years at their universities, college football has become more about the team than the individual. This is what creates such great rivalries, and also makes excellent betting opportunities for the savvy NCAA football gambler. Public perception of a college football matchup often times swings a line dramatically in the wrong direction, providing a great opportunity for an advantageous wager. And with today's current technology and gambling-friendly legislation, US and international players can even place bets on their mobile PC or smartphone, and can think the Internet for the availability of a wealth of college football news and information with 24/7 access.
USA players looking to keep their sports betting nice and clean, with a simple payment option at hand can rest easy knowing that Bovada has one of the best credit card approval records in the business. Hearing about this impressive success rate wasn't good enough for me, I decided to find out for myself. Before now, I always used MyPaylinQ to fund my Bovada sports account. Since that option was recently eliminated, it was time for me to venture into uncharted territory and try out my Visa for betting on the NCAAf. Much to my relief, my transaction went through flawlessly, as it has done week after week as I enjoy betting on my favorite sports, teams, and events. Visit Bovada Sports book.
