BetQL's College Football Week 13 Moneyline Picks
Each week we will take a look at a few college football moneylines to give you an idea on how much value there is in that bet. Betting moneylines isn't exactly hard but what is hard is finding value in the pick. Our college football moneyline model balances not only the correct pick but how much value there is in that pick. If you aren't a moneyline bettor that is fine because we also have college football picks against the spread that you can check out. Keep reading below to see some of our favorite moneyline picks for this week.
Colorado State vs. Air Force
The Mountain West Conference kicks off Week 13 in college football and we may not have a good value moneyline winner for you, but we have an easy one. Colorado State will be traveling to Air Force for a Thanksgiving game that kicks off at 2pm, currently the point spread is Air Force (-5.5) and the moneyline odds heavily favor Air Force at (-220). Our college football moneyline model is picking Air Force in this game and it is hard to argue with the model here. The moneyline model would have placed Air Force as a (-317) moneyline favorite so there is a bit of value on this game if you are willing to lay down a large enough bet. Colorado State comes into the game witha 1-2 record straight up with losses to Fresno State and Boise State, their only win this season came against Wyoming. Air Force on the other hand is 2-2 with losses to San Jose State and Boise State, and big wins against Navy and New Mexico. Air Force has showed that when they play a lesser opponent they can put point son the board and we have a feeling they will be able to do that easily against Colorado State here. We are backing the moneyline model and picking Air Force in this game.
Moneyline Pick: Air Force (-220)
Central Michigan vs Eastern Michigan
The Battle for Michigan goes to the second level when Central Michigan travels to Eastern Michigan in this MAC matchup kicking off on Friday at 4pm. Last week Central Michigan was tossed around by Western Michigan, but still comes into this game against Eastern Michigan as the heavy favorite. Currently the point spread sits at +/-7 with Central Michigan as heavy favorite, the moneyline odds also have Central Michigan as a big favorite at (-275), so there isn't a ton of value on Central Michigan here. Eastern Michigan was also beat up last week but by a school outside of the state of Michigan, in Toledo. Eastern Michigan will be searching for their first win on the year in this game, but we have a feeling they won't get it here. Central Michigan will need a big win to bounce back and compete in the MAC conference, so we are backing our moneyline model who things Central Michigan easily gets a moneyline win here.
Moneyline Pick: Central Michigan (-275)
College Football Moneylines Explained
College football moneyline betting is the simplest form of betting. With college football money line betting you are simply picking which team will outright win the game. The odds will list the the favorite in a given game as a negative number (ie. -200) that means you will have to bet that amount to win $100. The underdog will be listed with a positive number (ie. +500) that means you will win that amount on a $100 bet.
The lines for college football money line betting typically range from -110, which would be considered a small favorite all the way up to -1,000, which would be considered a massive favorite. You can head over to our college football odds page which shows all of our best value bets for the day to see if the action is worth it.
College Football Moneyline Example:
An example of a college football game that would likely have tight money line odds would be a game between Alabama and LSU played in LSU. In this case Alabama would likely only be -120 favorites or could even be a “pick em” game where both teams have -110 odds. A game that would have larger money line odds would be a game between Alabama and Arkansas, played in Alabama. In this case Alabama would likely be -800 of higher money line favorites. In each of these examples Alabama is the moneyline favorite which means there is not much value or money to be won. If you were to place a $100 bet on Bama at (-120) against LSU and they were to win you would win $80 in profit and be given the $100 you wagered back. If you bet $100 on Alabama as the heavy moneyline favorite at (-800) and they won you would win $12.50 in profit and be given the $100 wager back.
