Usually there are over 45 games on the college football gambling card each week, which offers gamblers either a lot of opportunity to be choosy and selective or to get them selves in trouble fast. When comparing college football gambling to NFL gambling, there are over three times as many teams and games in the colleges as there are in the professional ranks.
That's well over three times more temptation and college football betting opportunity for trouble if a gambler cannot get a hold of himself, maintain discipline, and control of his bankroll.
For those who can control themselves, one of the beauties of college football gambling is that, on its main day of Saturday, games begin in the morning and run all the way through past midnight. For the gambler that can manage his money, this is a buffet of opportunity. For those with no self discipline, it is a recipe for disaster.
Where many gamblers go wrong in college football gambling is that they will lay out some money on the early morning games and if they lose they will spend the rest of Saturday chasing those losses.
Sometimes, even winning is a problem for this maniacs as they will start thinking that "this is my day" and they will simply let the early morning profits ride on the later games that day, doubling their bets, (at the very least), and then end up losing even more money than they originally would have.
Success at NCAA college football gambling requires a lot of preparation by the gambler. He has to spend the summer analyzing the different situations that he will encounter during the season and plan how he will react and handle the situations that he encounters.
College football gambling is definitely NOT something that you can do on the fly or by the seat of your pants, you MUST have a plan of money management and on how to maximize profits while minimizing bankroll exposure to risk. Sometimes the greatest challenge that a bettor will face in college football gambling is overcoming himself.
