One time I went through potential sides of upcoming postseason college football matchup with a longtime Vegas oddsmaker. After we projected our numbers, I asked him what the totals would be. He replied, "I don't do totals." Of course, he actually did analyze and adjust Over/Under odds at his sportsbook having been in the business for decades.

The point is, he didn't like doing totals, didn't have a feel for it, and even after all these years still found it difficult. Over/Under bets are great for serious bettors, doubling the possibility of finding wagering value on every football game.

If you believe the posted side is an accurate reflection of the game, pass and move on to the total. And with line movement always in play, Over/Under odds can offer more value with college football picks plus open another window into where the real CFB public betting money is going.

  1. Does the offense score the same amount of points at home as on the road?

Betting Value in Free College Football Over/Under Picks

The easiest identifiable line movement in football hovers around college football totals. NCAA College Football Over/Under numbers can move - a lot. There are a lot of professional bettors (sharps or Wise Guys) who find more value in totals than sides and will move big money on an Over/Under number.

Because the public prefers betting sides, a lot of sharp money pouring in on a total is going to move the number quickly, sometimes significantly. In addition, many times the oddsmakers have the side nailed but there's far more value in the total because of the weather, quarterback injuries, matchups, or situational factors.

Free College Football Over/Under Picks Betting Strategy

Quarterback Play

Most NCAA college quarterbacks won't be good enough to play in the NFL, even as a backup. When assessing Over/Under wagers, the quarterback is a great place to start. Examining the completion percentage and touchdown to interception ratio gives a good idea about his capabilities and the style of offense that the team plays. Pass-heavy teams are ones that give an edge to forecasting high-scoring games OVER the total.

Passing teams can move quickly up and down the field. Even incomplete passes are a plus in that it stops the clock. By contrast, mobile quarterbacks who lead their team in running often have few TD passes. This is the mark of a ball-control, run-oriented team which is a plus when looking at low-scoring games UNDER.

Line Movement

The sharps move fast on totals, often six days before the game kicks off. It's common to find Over/Unders moving 2, 3, or 4 points from the opening number. That's a sign a lot of bettors are backing it including the Wise Guys. Over/Under movement is common on Thursday or Friday TV battles when there are only a couple of games on the board.

But pay more attention when you see totals move a lot on the stacked NCAA Saturday college football card. With 30 games to choose from, the oddsmakers are adjusting a few totals by quite a few points - that's a sign the sharp bettors have moved in.

Run Defense

Keep tabs on the best run defenses in the nation, teams that can stuff the run or hold opponents to just 3.0 yards per carry for instance. When teams have talent on the D-line, that leaves more flexibility to do other things, such as drop 7 guys into the secondary or mix in more blitzes to disrupt the offense.

Those defenses can be tough to score on, so there's likely a correlation to the amount of points they allow. This is how to search for UNDER opportunities. Teams like that playing in lousy weather conditions or when matched up against an offense that prefers to run because their QB can't throw well.
