2021 College Football Betting: On the Horizon

2021 College Football Betting

Just over a month. That’s how far we are away from college football. But, there’s 2021 college football betting available at BetNow right now. No, you aren’t going to get your money tomorrow or something. But, when the game is played, you’ll be able to win once it’s over. Our handicappers have been basically working since the confetti came down on last year’s national champions. So, to that end, we’ve got the betting on college football action that you’re looking at right now at BetNow. August is right over the horizon. 

2021 College Football Betting August 28th, 2021

That’s the first real date of college football. And man, what a day it is going to be. We’ve got at our site right now the first game being a Big 10 battle. The Cornhuskers of Nebraska are going into Illinois to take on the Fighting Illini. We’ve got Nebraska as a seven and a half point favorite on the road. But, that’s a big line. That’s a bit more than a touchdown. How do you see the game going? Can the Illini pull it out at home? Or will Big Red build up a headful of steam? 

Heading west, the next game we’ve got takes us to the Rose Bowl in lovely Pasadena, California. The Bruins of UCLA will host Hawaii. This is one of those games where our handicappers really like one team over the other. We’ve got UCLA as a 16.5 favorite at home. But, anything can happen in these games. Big time teams schedule a “creampuff” in the first game, but maybe the players don’t take them seriously, perhaps someone on the other team really steps up, and suddenly, those big lines don’t feel so big anymore. 

That’s something else to keep in mind for a bit later in the day, when UConn heads west to Fresno State to take on the Bulldogs. Yes, are bullish on the Bulldogs, as we’ve got them as a 27.5 point favorite in California. How do you see it? Can UConn keep it closer than that? Or will the Bulldogs pull away? 

September 2nd 

That’s our next day of college football action as of this writing, and boy do we have a bunch of action for you on that day. For example, we’ve got Philly’s own Temple heading east to the State University of New Jersey, Rutgers. We like Rutgers by almost two touchdowns, but with these two teams, anything could happen. 

Big 10 action continues that day as we’ve got The Ohio State Buckeyes heading into Minnesota to take on the Golden Gophers. OSU, on the road, is a near two touchdown favorite, at a 13.5 point line. How do you feel about that? Do you see the Buckeyes rolling on the road? Or, is this another tight, hard-fought, Big 10 game? 

Really, we’ve got teams from all across college football playing on September 2nd. Tennessee and Bowling Green play each other, for example. Tennessee is a heavy, heavy favorite. But, again, sometimes, with these games, one team gets a big lead, the coach takes out the starters and puts in the underclassmen. Then, the team that was trailing by so much finds a way to sneak back in to keep the big team from covering. Can that happen (or something even more shocking) when Bowling Green plays the Volunteers? 

Games All Season 

That’s not to say that every game on September 2nd has a big line, of course. Central Florida hosts Boise State. Central Florida is only a four point favorite. This could be a very good, very close game. How do you see it going? One thing we see: great college football all year long at the top sports betting website, BetNow!
