What’s a Power Ranking?

Okay, so OddsTrader creates NCAA college football power rankings which essentially rank the teams from first to worst based on their performances and taking into consideration the level of competition that they have played. Before the season, we can only guess how good the teams will be but a big indicator is how the teams fared last year and what their team is shaping up to be entering the new season.

This is what you would refer to as college football future power rankings or college football preseason power rankings. College football power rankings for all 128 teams are here for the asking as are college football power rankings top 25.

Here’s What the College Football Rankings Page Gives You

The first thing you will see is the week number in college football. Is it Week 1, Week 2, etc...? Underneath you will see the No. 1 team on our list in terms of power rankings NCAA football. You will also - Next: Date vs. Team. For example, if West Virginia is playing Maryland on September 4th, you will read the following: Next: Sept 4 vs. Maryland.

If you click where it says Next, a tab will slide from the right of your screen and you will then see the following information pertaining to the matchup: Matchup, Prediction, Odds, Line History, Injuries, Weather. Explore these individual tabs and find out everything you would ever want to know about the matchup between the teams. Once you are done, simply click the X at the top right of that tab and it will disappear.


AVG. Line

This is the first of the three main tabs you will find on the NCAA Football power rankings all teams page. As you know, each college football game has odds, or a line, which essentially evens up the playing field, pun intended.

For example, in 2021, Alabama had a historically exceptional college football team that won the national championship. On November 21st, 2020, Alabama played their SEC rival, Kentucky, in Alabama. If there was no point spread then everyone would bet the Crimson Tide, no one would bet the Wildcats, and the bookies would be broke, never to take an even-money, no-line wager again.

Well, because the bookies don’t want to go broke they do two things to avoid this. First, they charge a 10 percent commission, called the vigorish (or vig), on most flat wagers. Second, they set a line, giving the perceived weaker team a head start. In the example above, Alabama was perceived to be so much stronger than Kentucky that the oddsmakers at all of the best online sportsbooks made Bama a 31-point favorite. This means that Kentucky would theoretically get 31 points added to their score at the end of the game, or to look at it another way, Alabama would get 31 points subtracted from their score.

In this real-world example, the Crimson Tide of Alabama defeated the Kentucky Wildcats, 63-3, which means Alabama not only won the game but covered that huge point spread of 31. We know this because (63-31 = 32 and 32 is greater than Kentucky’s 3 points) or (3 + 31 = 32 which is less than Alabama’s 63 points.). In the sports betting vernacular, we would say that Alabama "covered" which always means ATS (Against The Spread).

In order to determine the AVG Line, or average line, for Alabama at any given point in the season, all we need to do is add up all the point spreads in which they were favored and then subtract each game in which they were underdogs (Alabama was never an underdog in any game in 2020), then divide by the number of games to get their average line. So let’s see what Alabama’s average line was in 2020.

Alabama had 13 games in 2020 including their SEC Championship game and two College Football Playoff (CFP) games to win the national championship. If we add up all the point spread in those 13 games the total comes to 267 and if we divide that by 13 games then we have an average line of 20.5 for Alabama. Therefore they were favored by an average of 20.5 points last season.

But here’s the thing, OddsTrader does all the research and the arithmetic for you. And they continue to do it for every single team week after week. That is a huge bonus for our users and a tool that can immediately help identify whether the team they are playing this week is stronger or weaker than their average opponent based on the current college football odds.


Power Line

This is the second of three tabs, to the right of AVG Line, and the left of Betting Edge. The single biggest question professional sports handicappers ask themselves is, what will the lines be this week on college football? In the old days, the lines were not released until a day before the games but most of the time they were released that morning.

However, in today’s high-tech world we have college football lines and college football rankings released early in the week which gives the sharps, and the public, plenty of time to pick them apart and get a jump on where those numbers might ultimately settle at kickoff.

But OddsTrader gives its users a leg up by using computer algorithms and formulated projections to determine where we believe the lines should be and allows you to compare our odds to those of the bookmakers. If there is a large discrepancy then perhaps it is wise to take advantage of what OddsTrader’s computer projection perceives as a weak number by the books and exploit them.

In our college football power rankings, all teams are included so this allows our users to use this tool for every game on the board. And it is not just limited to the regular season but we also have college football playoff power rankings as well, with Average Line and Power Line features.


Betting Edge

Here at OddsTrader, we do all the work. And when we say all the work, we mean it. In the previous section, we pointed out that OddsTrader delivers a Power Line which is essentially where our software programs believe the line should be but not where it will necessarily be when posted by the oddsmakers. There could, and often is, a disparity between what our algorithms are determining what the line should be and where they are officially set.

The Betting Edge section of the college football schedule power rankings compares our Power Line to the actual lines and then shows our users the difference. For example, if our Power Line tells us that Alabama should be a 40-point favorite over Kentucky but the lines being offered by the oddsmakers is around 31 then the Betting Edge section will show Alabama as a nine-point betting edge which is merely the difference between the Power Line (40) and the actual line (31) (40-31=9).

Getting a nine-point betting edge is huge and if that was indeed the case in our November 21, 2020 example when the Tide played the Wildcats, that would be an outstanding outcome for us as Alabama won that game by a whopping 60 points. That is an impressive tool and one you will find at OddsTrader throughout the college football season. College football power rankings and college football bowl power rankings can be especially important once the regular season is done, as only the best teams get invitations to keep playing for at least one more game.

So whether it is NCAA football conference power rankings, college fantasy football rankings Power 5 conferences only, college football defense power rankings, college football power rankings top 100, power rankings college football Week 10, power rankings football college, college football conference power rankings, college football playoff, or football power rankings NCAA, OddsTrader is your one-stop-shop.

Choose the Right Sportsbook

The tools OddsTrader supplies its users to make more informed and accurate betting decisions are invaluable. They can be the difference between a winning and losing season. But if you are not playing with one of the truly elite online sportsbooks then you are taking a big chance. Winning your bets but never getting paid your reward is absurd. What good is it if you beat the books, then ask for a payout, only to get excuses as to why the money won't be wired in a timely fashion?

Therefore, make sure to check out the online sportsbooks that you see on our site. We use these lines from these select bookmakers because each and every one of them has a track record of superior customer service, plenty of betting options, limits that will suit the recreational as well as the professional sports bettor, excellent bonuses and loyalty rewards, outstanding mobile platforms, aesthetically pleasing and easy to navigate dashboards, and more important than anything else...they pay when asked.

Make sure you find out what people are saying about the books listed at OddsTrader and check them out for yourself. It is always good to have accounts at two or more of the books recommended here because one of the biggest keys to winning on a consistent basis is getting the sharpest line. And even if you have one book that you prefer above all of the others, it is important to be able to compare the odds they are dealing with some of the others. Why take a line at your book when you can get a better one at another elite sportsbook?

And that is why even small bettors win more often when they take the sharpest numbers out there. If the Clemson Tigers are favored by 21 over the Virginia Cavaliers but you can get them at -20 at another top-notch book, wouldn't that make sense? Especially if the Tigers win the game by 20 points exactly, giving you a push versus an ATS loss. So, make sure to choose wisely because it is one thing to sweat the game but never the payout!
