When Did the 2022/23 NCAA Football Season Begin?

The 2022 NCAA Division I FBS football regular season began on August 27, 2022, and ends on December 10, 2022.

The College Football Playoff National Championship takes place on January 9, 2023, at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California – the same stadium that hosted the NFL Super Bowl in 2022.

Who Are the Defending Champions?

The Georgia Bulldogs defeated the Alabama Crimson Tide 33-18 to win their third national championship in school history, and first since 1980.

College Football Futures Betting

Despite the NFL being America’s most-watched football league, many purists think the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision is unbeatable.

The NFL might have the marquee players earning big bucks that the average fan could only dream of making, but college football will always have a special place in the hearts of the American public.

Not only does college football have a longer, richer history than the NFL, but it has particular appeal in those towns and cities that the professional game has neglected. Passion for these teams has frequently been passed down through the generations, with college players regarded as hometown heroes by many fans.

Betting on the NCAAF Futures odds is also hugely popular with fans and further below we take a more detailed look at what type of college football bets are available and tell you how to get the best value from your NCAAF wagers.

College Football Conferences and Divisions

National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Football is comprised of three divisions: Division I, Division II and Division III. The main reason for Division II and Division III schools to compete in Division I is that certain sports have either only a single division or only Divisions I and III.

As of 2022, there are 10 conferences and 131 schools in FBS. Gamblers can wager on teams from every conference and division in the NCAA.

College Football Betting - Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the most popular bet types in the NCAAF?

    The most popular types of NCAAF bets are the Moneyline (which is simply betting on the game winner), the Point Spread markets and Totals betting. You can find full explanations of these bets below.

  • What is the Moneyline in NCAAF betting?

    The Moneyline is the easiest wager to understand and is the most popular way to bet on College Football, consisting as it does of simply selecting the winning team in any game. This makes the Moneyline particularly popular with novice bettors.

    The good news for NCAAF bettors is that with the games being less predictable than many in the NFL, the betting odds are generally more attractive for those wanting to back favorites.

  • What is the Point Spread bet?

    The Point Spread is another popular wager. Here the sportsbook attempts to level the market by giving the underdog team a theoretical points advantage.

    Rather than simply having to win the game (as is the case with the Moneyline), the Point Spread requires the team deemed to be the favorite to win the game doing so by a specified number of points (the spread) for any wager on them to win.

    For example, if the underdog were given a Point Spread of +5.5, that means that they would have to either win the game or to lose it by no more than 5 points for a wager on them to win. Conversely, if you bet the favourite at -5.5 then they will need to win by 6 or more points for you to collect.

  • What is Totals betting (Over / Under)?

    Totals betting is another very popular market and one that can usually provide interest for the majority of any game.

    This market is a simple bet on how many points will be scored overall in the game. A sportsbook might set the Total at 51.5 points (the half-point “hook” being there to prevent a push).

    That means that you would have two options to wager on when betting – Over 51.5 points (the combined points scored by both teams) or Under 51.5 points.

  • What is a Parlay bet?

    Parlays are another popular betting option for NCAA College Football.

    Parlays consist of combining two or more bets, so increasing your potential winnings. For a parlay bet to win, all your selections must win.

    Parlays can be a good way to boost the odds when you are looking to back several short odds favorites in a market such as the Moneyline, although the more selections you choose in your parlay, the greater the risk that one or more of them will let you down.

  • Is there 'Live Betting' on college football?

    Yes. Live NCAAF betting when the game is 'In-Play' enables bettors to bet on the live odds (which will change as time passes in the game and based on the score) once the game has started.

    With live betting, you can bet on the result of the game, the point spread and totals or outcomes such as the next touchdown, interception or field goal.

  • What is the order of play of College Football Bowls?

    The Rose Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Orange Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, and Peach Bowl are all college football bowl games played annually at the end of the college football season. These bowl games, along with several others, are known as the New Year's Six bowls.

    The Rose Bowl is played in Pasadena, California, and is the oldest of the New Year's Six bowls, dating back to 1902. It is traditionally played on New Year's Day and features a matchup between the Pac-12 Conference and the Big Ten Conference.

    The Sugar Bowl is played in New Orleans, Louisiana, and is also played on New Year's Day. It features a matchup between the Southeastern Conference (SEC) and the Big 12 Conference.

    The Orange Bowl is played in Miami Gardens, Florida, and features a matchup between the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and either the SEC or the Big Ten.

    The Cotton Bowl is played in Arlington, Texas, and features a matchup between the SEC and the Big 12.

    The Fiesta Bowl is played in Glendale, Arizona, and features a matchup between teams from the Pac-12 and the Big Ten or the SEC.

    The Peach Bowl is played in Atlanta, Georgia, and features a matchup between teams from the SEC and the ACC or the Big Ten.

    The College Football Playoff National Championship is a separate game that determines the national champion of college football. It is played at a neutral site and features the winners of the two semifinals, which are the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl. The semifinals are rotated among the New Year's Six bowls, with the other four bowls serving as host for the semifinals on a rotating basis. The College Football Playoff system began in 2014 and has been used to determine the national champion since then.
