NCAAF Future Odds

Currently there are no futures available.

A futures bet is a wager on an event or series that will finish in the future, as opposed to betting on a single game or match. As such, NCAAF future odds usually refer to who'll win the College Football Playoff National Championship.

Picking NCAAF Futures

These are mostly "Odds to Win" type of bets, and here we'll explain how this kind of bet works.

Bettors choose a team to win a certain event that will take place in the future, thus receiving future odds. As an example, I choose LSU to win the Playoffs.

After a bettor chooses the team they place a wager on it and the wagered money stays tied up until the outcome of the chosen event. In my case that would be the Playoffs and if LSU win, I win my wager.

Sportsbooks set odds before the start of the season for each event and they change them throughout the season depending on factors like team's success.

It can be quite fun to try and predict the winners early in the season, and it may also be profitable as the odds are higher at the beginning. However, if you wager a large amount, it will be tied up for a long time.

How to figure out the wager amounts? If LSU's future odds to win the Playoffs are +1500, and if I wager $100 now, this would make me $1,500 profit in the eventuality they win.

Don’t worry if you miss the start of the season, you can place an outright NCAAF futures bet at any point up until the final game of the year. This allows you to watch the teams on your shortlist get some game time under their belts and means you can make a more informed futures pick.
