How to read College Football Global 1st Half
Global odds include operators that operate outside of Nevada. These new operators to market have been known to provide incentives for bettors and that’s an advantage to players in those legal US States.
Similar to our Spread and Money Line and Odds, every matchup is listed in order of Rotation and those numbers are preceded by the Date and Time of the College Football game.
The rotation for college football games typically lists them by scheduled starting time, which can lead to some confusion since the number will remain the same even if the games wind up changing due to television networks often shifting around action to present more attractive matchups. Home teams are listed at the bottom and will therefore be your even-numbered squad.
The numbers next to the teams are called Spreads. Favorites are the teams laying points, which is represented by a minus (-) sign. The team in the Underdog role is getting points, which is represented by the plus (+) symbol that you wouldn’t see on the board but would be represented next team onto you betting ticket or slip.
In 1st Half betting, the spreads are all made solely for the first half of college football games. Once the first two quarters are played and the contest reaches halftime, your wager is ready to be graded.
You can add or subtract the spread from your team’s halftime score depending on what side you backed. The amount of points a team is favored by is set by oddsmakers on Sunday afternoons and the first-half figure is based on those numbers.
Opposite from the spread you’ll find the Total, which represents what oddsmakers believe will be the combined number of points scored in the first half between the teams. That number also increases or decreases based on bets coming in on the Over or Under. 2nd Half odds are typically available at halftime of college football games, creating a short window for bettors to get action in until the beginning of the third quarter.
College Football Global 1st Half Over-Under Odds
The first-half total is based on the number oddsmakers place on a full-game spread but often varies if a game is expected to start slowly or a blowout is expected. You could see a lower figure than half of the full-game number or you might see instances where the number ends up higher since the second-half of games often results in backups chewing up clock. The goal, as always, is to get on the right side of the number.
