How to bet on the Duke Blue Devils football team
When it comes to betting on college football, you’ll discover many bet types are similar to those in other sports. Here are four of the most popular bet types available for bettors.
Duke Blue Devils moneyline bet
This is the most simple of the bet types. You pick the winner of a game featuring two teams. If you’re right, you get paid based on your bet amount and the odds when confirming your bet slip.
Every sportsbook carries moneyline bets, though some offer better betting odds. Here’s an example of what a Duke moneyline bet might look like at your sportsbook:
|Duke Blue Devils||-145|
When it comes to odds, you can identify which team is the favorite by its negative numbers. The side with positive odds is the predicted underdog in the game.
Positive numbers show how much you stand to win for every $100 you wager. Negative odds show how much you must bet to win $100.

By assigning predicted points to the favorite, point spread bets can help to bring balance to a matchup that might have no real value with moneyline bets. A Duke point spread bet may look like this:
|Duke Blue Devils||-10.5 (-110)|
|Virginia Tech Hokies||+10.5 (-110)|
In this example, the Blue Devils must win by at least 11 points for a bet on their side to pay out.
Duke Blue Devils totals bets
Total bets, or over/under bets, are another popular type of bet in college football. Instead of betting on which team will win, you bet on the total number of points that oddsmakers predict the two teams will combine to score.
A totals bet may look like this:
In this example from Caesars Sportsbook, the two teams must combine to score 51 points or more for the over to win. For the under to pay out, that total must be 50 or lower.
