Optimal Strategy for the College Football Bowl Season

The College Football season has reached the bowl season. The bowl games are many people’s favorite time of year. The best part of the bowl season is there are games pretty much on a daily basis for two straight weeks. You can make some pretty good money when you are betting on the College Football Bowl season.

Let’s take a look at the optimal betting strategy for the coming round of college football bowl games:

Fade the Public

One of the most logical ways of betting the bowl games is to fade the popular picks. The popular picks certainly do not always win. The popular pick is by people who have a ton of money, and may not even know that much about college football. By doing this, you have a chance to fade the overrated teams that have a good record. This is probably the best strategy when you are betting on the college football bowl season. This is a great way to make money as the Holiday season arrives.


Another way to bet on your college football teams during the bowl season is to take into account the strength of schedule. There are teams that will be playing opponents that are much better than they saw all season. Also, there will be team that will be stepping down a level than their schedule. Look at the schedules of each team and take that into account when you are betting on the college football bowl games.


Motivation is overrated during the bowl season. The reason it’s overrated, is because most teams have at least a month off between games. There is no such thing as overrated when it comes to bowl games. Do not bet on motivation. DO not bet on teams being red hot. The difference between being red hot and being a good football team is something you want to take into consideration. If you are betting on teams “being hot” you are going to lose money money than you want.


Bet on the better coaches – college football is a lot about the coaches. There are some college coaches that will blow out his opponent, just due to coaching. The best coaches win the big games more often than not. This is all part of the factor, this is not always a gimme. Sure, every year, a really good college football coach gets beat in a bowl game. But, more times than not – bet on the coach.


Location can be overrated – pretty much every time during the bowl season is on the road. These are all neutral field games. Sure, some schools have a much shorter travel than the other. But, in the end, both teams are pretty much on the road. There is no good reason to bet on a home team, or take a team on the road. Throw that equation out the door for your best optimal strategy.

There is a good look at the best optimal strategy when you are betting on the Bowl games during the college football season. Best of luck!
