BetQL's NCAA Football Betting Tools

While Alabama and Clemson have dominated college football in recent years, Saturday football is incredibly fun to bet on. That’s where we come in. Whether you’re a casual Saturday bettor, a low-risk, high-reward parlay fan or someone who finds yourself betting on Tuesday night #MACtion outcomes, you’re in the right spot.

BetQL is every NCAA Football bettor’s go-to destination for updated odds, a proven best bets algorithm, public betting data, and sharp betting data. Our live odds keep bettors informed about current lines, while our line movement dashboard compares those current odds with where they opened, which can provide an edge all by itself.

BetQL’s NCAAF Model hit 58.06% of its five-star over/under bets last season. Our star values indicate which wagers our model computes as the most valuable. They’re graded on a 1-5 scale with a five-star bet indicating the most value. The more valuable the bet, the more stars it’ll have. Simple as that. 

Public betting data can also be very useful. Our dashboard displays the public ticket % provided by the books directly. Typically, going against the public for spread bets where the public is over 70% is a winning strategy over the long haul. BetQL provides public betting data for spread, moneyline, over/under and all first-half bets. But, this article is all about sharp betting. Keep reading to find out why access to our sharp betting data is an extremely powerful tool to have in your arsenal.

Sharp Betting On BetQL

One of the most important tools we offer is access to live sharp betting data. If you believe in following the money, you will find this particularly useful. Sharp bettors can be considered pros or experts due to the fact that they typically wager the most money and are responsible for moving lines. Sharps typically get heavy action on their targeted bets soon after lines are released. Therefore, having access to their preferred wagers is extremely powerful. Our sharp picks dashboard is extremely easy to use and understand.

The “Ticket %” refers to the percentage of public bets that are on a given wager. The “Money %” refers to the percentage of total money that is on a given wager. Finally, and most importantly, our “Pro Edge” is defined by the difference between the Money % and Ticket %. The higher the Pro Edge, the more pro bettors are favoring the bet.

Let’s take a look at a couple real-world examples. 

Sharp Bet Against The Spread

In Week 13 of the 2019 season, the Colorado Buffaloes hosted the Washington Huskies as huge home underdogs. The Buffaloes closed as 14-point dogs and attracted just 47% of total bets. However, 98% of total money wagered backed Colorado, indicating a gigantic 51% sharp bet. The result: a 20-14 Colorado victory (and upset). Access to only the public data in this case would not have told you much, but the sharp money painted a completely different picture and could have provided an edge.

Sharp Over/Under Bet

Back in Week 12 of the 2019 season, the No. 11 Wisconsin Badgers hosted the Nebraska Cornhuskers. The game closed with a 50-point total and the OVER and the UNDER both attracted 50% of the bets. However, 79% of the total money wagered backed the OVER, indicating a 29% Pro Edge (sharp bet). The result: a 37-21 Wisconsin win. Therefore, anyone who followed the money and bet with the sharps ended up cashing in.
