There are a number of factors to keep in mind when you look at betting the underdog in college football with an offshore bookmaker.
Online bookie odds are always more popular on the favorite than the underdog. This applies in college football as well, perhaps more so than any other sport. College football has a lot of mismatches on the board and big online bookie pointspreads. Everyone is going to want to bet the better team but that team is not always going to cover the offshore bookmaker pointspread and is not always a good bet.
Your first part of betting college football underdogs at an online bookie is to decide whether or not the underdog should really be a dog at all. Sometimes they most definitely should be, but not always. You could have a team that is a 3 or 4 point dog that you determine should actually be favored at the online bookie. That team is then a good bet. You will find teams that should be favored though, but perhaps not by a large margin in offshore bookmaker odds. You will definitely see mismatches when teams like Ohio State and Michigan play Northwestern, Minnesota or other teams. It is then you have to look at the online bookie pointspread and determine the value of the underdog.
One of the better ways to determine the actual offshore bookmaker line on a game is to have your own numbers before the official betting line is released. If you can make your own number then you have an idea of value when the online bookie odds come out. You can pick out dogs that have great value because your numbers show it. You need to ask yourself whether or not the dog is getting points based on reputation or strictly based on numbers. You should look at previous history and to whether or not the favorite seems to have the dog’s number in the history of the matchup. Find out if the favorite has always covered the spread in that situation.
Make sure to factor in other points against the online bookie odds like injuries, revenge, etc. When you take the dog at the online bookie you don’t always have to win the game. You just have to cover the online bookie pointspread. That is why betting college football underdogs can be the way to go.
