Point Spread Bets

The point spread is one of the most popular bets in college football. The Houston Cougars will be the favorite when their point spread line has a minus sign “-” before the number. They’ll be the underdog when the line has a plus sign “+” before the number.

The odds follow the point spread line. Standard betting odds are -110. That means you’ll risk $110 to win $100. Sometimes, the odds might be higher or lower depending on the betting action for or against the Cougars.

Moneyline Bets

Pick either the favorite or the underdog team to win. Unlike the point spread, you’re simply picking the outright winner. Taking Houston on the moneyline when they’re a big underdog can be more profitable than a point spread bet if you’re confident the Cougars can win the game.

Moneyline favorites have a minus sign “-” before their number. This number indicates how much you risk to win $100. For example, if the Cougars are -250 favorites, you would risk $250 to win $100. When the Cougars are overwhelming favorites, you may see their moneyline value exceed -600.

Moneyline underdogs have a plus sign “+” before their number. This number indicates how much you win if you risk $100. If Houston is a +350 underdog, you would risk $100 to win $350. If the Cougars are a big underdog, their moneyline might be +600 or more.

Betting an obvious favorite to win isn’t always a good idea, even if it’s for the Cougars to win the game. Betting big moneyline favorites means you tie up a large amount of bankroll for a small profit. In these cases, betting the point spread might be a better move.

Total Bets

Decide whether the sum of both teams’ final scores will be over or under the sportsbook’s total line.

Each side will have its own odds. Occasionally, both sides will have -110 standard odds. Over will be abbreviated as “o” and under will be abbreviated as “u”. Look for each side’s odds to the right of each letter.

With total bets, you must consider the ability of the Cougars and their opponent to put points on the scoreboard. Carefully determine whether the game will be a shootout between two dominant offenses, or a low-scoring grind between two defensive teams.

Games sportsbooks anticipate to be high-scoring will get higher total lines and more expensive over odds compared to lower-scoring games, which will get lower total lines and more expensive under odds.
