There’s no better place to school your book than on the college football gridiron and there’s no better place to find the best college football handicappers than VegasInsider. For each pick, the records will show the date and time it was posted, the line and line source plus the win/loss result. Check out our Expert Records to see each handicapper's records history and Leaderboards by sport.


Our college football expert handicappers offer Daily and Insured packages. Each package is sold separately and the number of picks varies from one handicapper to another. Some of the experts are very selective, only posting a few picks each week which caters to the low-volume bettors who manage their bankroll very carefully. There are also a handful of high-volume experts who will post double-digit picks each week, providing value in terms of cost per pick.

We require all handicappers to submit a minimum of 50-word analysis with each of their expert picks. Packages may contain any combination of picks including ATS, money lines, and totals. Purchased picks are viewed on your My Insider page and can be posted up until one hour before game time, so check back throughout the day.


The point spread was developed to provide a balance for both teams involved in a contest to entice bettors to potentially back the weaker team and receive points. The two teams are listed as either a favorite or an underdog. The favorite is usually the perceived better team in the game, as backing them means giving up several points. For example, if Ohio State is listed as a nine-point favorite (-9) over Michigan, they would need to win by at least ten points to win the bet.

Any victory by eight points or less by Ohio State would result in a loss. Betting Michigan with the nine points (+9) is actually beneficial in two ways. If Michigan loses the game by eight points or less, Arizona wins the bet. Also, if Michigan wins the game straight-up regardless of the amount, they cash winning tickets. Assuming the game falls on nine, in this case, a ‘push’ occurs, meaning all tickets are refunded.


There is moneyline betting in football in case you don’t want to worry about the point spread. However, the odds are adjusted accordingly for both the favorite and the underdog. If you wanted to back Ohio State (a nine-point favorite) but only needed them to win straight-up, you would have to wager $550 to win $100. On the flip side, if you have enough faith in Michigan to beat Ohio State outright as a nine-point ‘dog, you can place $100 to win $400.

There is a sliding scale on the moneyline and point spread correlation, with the favorite numbers rising relative to how many points they lay. A three-point favorite to win outright is just -160 (risk $160 to win $100), while a seven-point favorite is a chalkier bet at -320 (risk $320 to win $100).


Another option to bet on football instead of taking a side is to bet on the total. Basically, this is a cooperative effort between the two teams to either go ‘Over’ or ‘Under’ the posted total. In football, if Ohio State and Michigan have a game total of 53 ½, a winning ‘Over’ bet would mean the two clubs would combine for 54 points or more. On the flip side, a winning ‘Under’ ticket is 53 points or fewer between the two teams.
