Trends for Futures Betting on the Bowls: College Football Picks

10344567_lOne of the most popular pastimes in the world is college football, and many people take the games played very seriously. In past years, the BCS system dictated who would play in the bowl games, which caused a lot of controversy among players and fans. This year, the College Football Playoff system is kicking off, and many people are a bit confused and excited about this change. For the most part, fans are unaware of what is in store for them, which is part of the excitement. Here are a few things you can look for this year in college football that may increase the winnings you gain from your betting.

Interconference Play
One of the most exciting changes coming with the College Football Playoff System is a wider array of inter-conference play. In the past, this type of play would only come with bowl games which severely limited the game options of each conference. By letting the other conference play each other, you have more wildcard possibilities with teams from other conferences looking to prove something against a larger and more established school.

More Exciting Games
Another benefit of this new system is that it will create better and more exciting games which are always fun to bet on. The championship game will come after the four teams picked by the committee play each other, which is a lot fairer than the old BCS system. By having the best four teams play, you will get a more exciting and equally-matched championship game which is always a plus for all fans and gamblers alike. Instead of having two unequally matched teams from different conferences, there will be a playoff that will decide who the best is.

Bigger Point Spreads
Yet another benefit of the new system in college football is that you have a great chance of the points spread being wrong due to all of the new teams that are unproven. Unless the teams are investigated by the betting websites, the points spread given to them may not be reflective of the skill of the team. This can be good for you, especially if you are in the know about a particular new team because you can bet heavy on them and win big. The more you know about the teams playing, the better equipped you will be to win.
