2020-2021 College Football Bowl Betting Guide

Bowl Games IconBowl season is truly one of the most wonderful times of the year for pro handicappers and new bettors alike that are eager for the season's opportunities for betting on College Football.

Betting on NCAA football’s postseason play is one of the oldest holiday traditions in college football and dates back to the first-ever bowl game—the 1902 Tournament East-West football game, which today is more commonly known as the “Rose Bowl.” After over a century of bets placed, and the recent inclusion of the College Football Playoff in 2014, turning a profit during bowl season remains a tough nut to crack.

Making sure you account for numerous additional variables and understand the legalities (to stay off the naughty list) are our top priorities with this guide. In addition, we provide odds for every 2020-21 matchup and show you the top NCAAF betting sites, so your bowl game wagers can jingle all the way to the bank!

2020-2021 COVID-19 Update For Bowl Season

Although there will be a complete College Football Playoff and National Championship Game for the 2020-2021 NCAAF season, many bowls games have decided to cancel because of difficulties presented by COVID-19. Many college football teams have also declared an intention to bow out of the postseason and hope for a coronavirus-free environment next year.

Is it legal to bet on College Football Bowl Games?

Yes, there is no federal law that prohibits college football fans from betting on bowl games. Currently, there are two ways to legally bet at a sportsbook for the 2020-21 bowl season:

  1. Offshore ‒ There is no law banning gamblers from using sports betting sites located outside the United States. Because the action is not mentioned in laws or regulations, there are no rules being broken when wagering with an offshore sportsbook operating online.
  2. Domestic ‒ Following the US Supreme Court’s decision to repeal PASPA on May 14, 2018, states are now allowed to pass laws legalizing sports betting. To see if you live in one of the many states currently offering sportsbooks, head on over to our State By State Legal Sports Betting Guide.
