College Football Public Betting Explained

Historically one of the most popular betting strategies is betting against the public consensus. Although data has shown that betting against the public for college football games has been somewhat profitable over the years it may not be the best strategy, but examining college football public betting should be a crucial part of anyone’s strategy.
The strategy behind betting against the public or as it’s commonly called “fading the public” is that most bettors do not totally know what they are doing and will pick a winner based on a gut feeling rather than data. Most casual college football bettors are more familiar with picking a moneyline winner and aren’t comfortable reading college football odds and spreads, let alone picking a game against the spread. Since football is by far the most popular sport and the most popular sport for casual fans to bet on this strategy holds a bit more water.
Of course BetQL has you covered in terms of college football public betting percentages and the number of public bets. If you think you want to try fading the public you can also check out which side the sharps are picking.

In sports betting, most people always look straight to spread betting or the money line to place their bets. Some people choose to bet on the total, another common form of betting. But one of the most underutilized and forgotten about ways to bet is using public data. By using the public betting data, bettors are able to figure out where all the bets are going for a certain bet. This is very useful for anyone who wants to either fade the public or side with the public, and there are some bettors out there who bet solely on public betting data. Another reason public data is helpful is because it allows you to see where the sharp money is going.

One of the best ways, and most profitable ways, to bet the spread, money line, or total is by looking at the public to sharp action. These numbers will tell you where all the huge tickets are going on a game, compared to where the small wagers are being placed. For example, one team may have a huge number of tickets on them compiling of 90% of the total bets placed on that game for that type of wager, while the other team only has 10%. This information is retrieved by using the public betting data. However, that 10% team may have over 70% of the total money bet on the game, meaning that the bets placed on that team are very large amounts of money. This lets you separate the more inexperienced bettors from the big cats that are placing massive amounts of money on bets every single night. These gamblers are usually sharp bettors, people that gamble for a living and have inside sources that help them win bets. We have this data via our BetQL model that tells us not only the Sharp %, but the public % as well, making sure you know where the pros are betting each and every game.

The public data plays a huge part in sports betting, so make sure to check out where the public and sharps are betting to make a more informed bet!
