Sports betting can be so exciting during the football season.
There are few mornings more full of promise and wonder than a college football Saturday. On must Saturdays in the fall, there are well over forty games on the online betting boards and the games start in the morning and run past midnight. For a sports betting gambler, waking up on a college football Saturday is like a kid waking up on Christmas morning as the surprises and suspense cannot be matched.

Sports betting on a college football Saturday will involve looking at a lot of teams and a lot of games. One of the traps that many online betting gamblers fall into at sportsbooks on college football Saturday is that they try and do too much. A big mistake that sports betting gamblers make in addressing this high volume of teams and games during the week is that they do a mountainous amount of research and study. In many cases, however, all of this work serves to do little more than confuse the sports betting gambler and cloud his mind, as he takes in so much information that it actually sickens him and his ability to be decisive.
On the other hand, another bad approach that is taken by a lot of online betting gamblers is that they stick with taking the big name teams such as Miami, Ohio State, Michigan, Oklahoma, Texas, and USC. In the long run, taking these big time teams, particularly as home chalks, is a way to lose money. Many sports betting players that lack knowledge about college football think that taking the power teams at home against lesser opponents is a mismatch. That is true in one sense but there is a problem with the theory and that is the sports betting oddsmakers also know that these games are mismatches and also know that the mainstream online betting public will see them as such and bet accordingly. So with this knowledge the sports betting oddsmakers jack the lines up into overlays, in essence taxing the gamblers who want those power home mismatches and making the underdog an added value type wager.
A third critical mistake made by sports betting gamblers is that they end up playing too many games. The right approach is to bet college football like you should bet poker, which is that less is more. The old poker adage about the fewer hands that you play, the better that you will do also applies to college football sports betting. Being choosy is being smart in college football sports betting.
