Betting on college football can be profitable, but there are some things to consider before placing a wager on any college football game.
Betting Tips for College Football
Sports bettors may disagree on many things, but some things all successful bettors have in common are:
- They Line Shop: Successful sports betting begins and ends with finding the best odds at the best prices and having open and verified betting accounts at several Ohio sportsbooks. You should, too.
- They Manage Their Money: Money management is the key, and you must protect your bankroll. Otherwise, you won’t have any money left to bet. Most successful sports bettors never wager more than 1-5% of their bankroll on any one wager, and neither should you.
- They Do Research: Successful sports bettors do their research. They read beat writers and study weather forecasts and betting stats as part of their research, and you should, too.
- They Don’t Bet While Intoxicated: There’s plenty of adult fun to be had watching football, and no one is not telling you not to party while enjoying your favorite team. Make the bets the bets before you begin drinking, and never wager while intoxicated.
Miami Ohio Redhawks vs. Miami Hurricanes Friday 9/01 7:00 pm
PointsBet Ohio has the Redhawks as +17 point away underdogs with a 46-point total when the two sides meet Friday night at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.
The total is awfully low for two teams expected to score the football. That’s because the weather forecast calls for rain on Friday night, and with this being hurricane season, there is also likely to be some wind. That’s going to make things very difficult for these offenses to score the football, and both defenses should benefit.

Miami, Ohio, has seven returning starters from a defense finishing first in the MAC in points allowed and third in total yards allowed. The Miami Hurricanes return six starters from a defense surrendering fifth in scoring and ninth in total yards allowed.
My best bet is the Under. You should always look for the best number possible, and if you can get a better number than the 46 points PointsBet offers, then you should bet the better number. These offenses should score a pile of points this season, but not in Miami on Friday night. Take the Under in this one.
Akron Zips vs. Temple Owls Saturday 9/02 2:00 pm
BetRivers Ohio has Akron as a +10.5 underdog with a 55-point total (-109) when these teams collide Saturday at 2:00 at Lincoln Finacial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
I like Akron to cover as +10.5 underdogs. Both offenses are likely better than their defensive counterparts, and each school returns several key offensive personnel, including their starting quarterbacks. The weather forecast calls for sunny skies and very little wind, which should benefit both offenses.
Temple has been favored by 10+ points only four times since 2021, and they failed to cover the spread in each contest. Conversely, Akron was 4-3 ATS last season as the away team and has the offensive flexibility to keep this one close and a defense that will stop Temple enough to cover the spread. Take Akron to cover the +10.5 at BetRivers.
