College Football Futures Betting Rules
General betting rules apply to all NCAA college football futures bets and future college bowl betting. In addition, the following rules are specific to futures betting on college bowls.
- All NCAA college football games must go at least 55 minutes of play for futures bets on the game to have 'action' including futures betting on college bowls.
- Football overtime periods count as part of the wagered game, if played, unless otherwise noted for all NCAA college futures bets.
- Futures bets on any NCAA college football game that is postponed or abandoned before at least 55 minutes of play will be considered 'no action', unless the outcome of the bet has already been decided at the time of abandonment - i.e. 'first touchdown scorer bets' will stand once a touchdown has been scored in the game.
- An NCAA college football game must go 55 minutes of play for a futures bet on the Over/Under to be considered 'action', even if the total score in the game is already more than the over handicap offered for that event.
- A Winning NCAA College Futures Bet Margin: Winning margin betting is from scratch (the start of the game)
College Football Futures Betting Guide
A futures bet is a bet on an event where there are many competitors, sometimes made long in advance of the event taking place.
Futures are most common in events like college bowl betting, motor racing, NASCAR, or golf, among others. Futures are also posted in major competitions, like Major League Baseball and the NFL, at the start of the season, where players can get better odds on a team in which they have confidence than they would get later in the season or bet on college bowl games early.
Because of the number of competitors, futures bets offer larger payouts. The larger payoffs are offset by the increased difficulty of picking a winner.
