In preparation for football season, sportsbooks have had odds posted for your traditional college football (CFB) futures bets. Whether you want to bet on win totals, conference winners, etc., it is not hard to find a book with odds on your market of interest. But WynnBET is offering something different, not unlike how they have done for the NFL.
That is not to say that you cannot place futures bets on traditional college football futures at WynnBET—because you can. But if you are not like Kirk Herbstreit and are open to something different, WynnBET’s exclusive offerings are worth a look.
After all, variety is the spice of life, right?
CFB Combined Team Wins Market
Betting on your favorite college football team’s win total is one of the more common college football futures bets. You will be hard-pressed to find a sportsbook that does not offer odds on CFB win totals. But WynnBET is the only one offering odds on combined win totals.
The following is just a sample of what WynnBET has odds posted for:
- More Combined Wins – Oklahoma, LSU, Texas, Alabama
- Oklahoma + LSU : -150
- Alabama + Texas: +130
- More Combined Wins – Georgia, Ball State, San Jose State, Ohio State
- Georgia + Ball State : -125
- Ohio State + San Jose State: +105
- More Combined Wins – Penn State, West Virginia, Florida, Virginia Tech
- Penn State + West Virginia: -120
- Florida + Virginia Tech: +100
- More Combined Wins – Alabama, South Alabama, Auburn, UAB
- Alabama + South Alabama: -160
- Auburn + UAB: +140
Many fans will be aware of the potential teams like Oklahoma, Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State, Penn State, and Florida have. But schools like LSU, Texas, and Auburn are harder to call. Most fans are probably not as familiar with programs like Ball State, South Alabama, and UAB as they are Virginia Tech or West Virginia.
It will take some research to make an educated bet, but if you are looking for a break from the norm…
Who Will Be The No. 1 Seed In The CFB Playoffs?
Every sportsbook has odds posted on who will win the national title in college football this season. There are often a few that will post odds on who will make the college football playoffs. But WynnBET is offering odds on something else—the No. 1 seed.
These are not odds on the team that is going to win it all. No, this is the team that will end the regular season in the No. 1 spot on top of the CFP rankings:
- Alabama +110
- Oklahoma +325
- Clemson +600
- Georgia +700
- Ohio State +1500
- Texas A&M +2500
- Iowa State +5000
- Notre Dame, Washington, Oregon +7500
- Miami, North Carolina +8000
- Arizona State, Wisconsin +10000
Alabama is the obvious favorite, of course. Even if they have some struggles at quarterback to start the season, the roster is good enough to carry the team while Nick Saban works the kinks out. But that does not mean it is impossible to find value elsewhere.
While they would each need a few things to go their way during the season, it would not be too shocking to see Oklahoma, Clemson, Georgia, or Ohio State finish the regular season as the No. 1 seed for the CFB playoffs.
Highest Scoring CFB Team
At the start of the college football season, it is common for good teams to schedule soft opponents. That way, if they struggle out of the gate, they still have a good shot at winning. If they do not struggle, fans get treated to a blowout to start the new season.
WynnBET is giving college football fans a chance to bet on who the highest scoring teams will be.
In Week 0, there are only a handful of games and just a few teams from a Power Five conference scheduled to play. But the oddsmakers make it clear who they think the favorites are—UCLA (-120) and Fresno State (+130).
The next closest teams are Nebraska and UTEP at +1500.
As for Week One, the competition is a little stiffer (more teams available via the WynnBET app):
- Texas A&M: +500
- Wake Forest, Oklahoma: +800
- Tennessee, Oregon, Pittsburgh, Ole Miss, Michigan, Auburn, Alabama: +1500
- USC, UCF, Ohio State, NC State, LSU, Cincinnati: +2500
Even with the question mark at quarterback, with their run game and defense, the Aggies should have no problem running up the score on Kent State.
But the value may be with Oklahoma here. After Spencer Rattler got the kinks worked out last season, the Sooners dominated (and Tulane struggled to a 6-6 record). It might be worth putting a little on Ole Miss (vs. Louisville) or Alabama (vs. Miami).
