Ah, college football. It's one of the most anticipated sports season among sports bettors. If you are like most sports bettors, the words college football parlay makes you salivate. Step into any Las Vegas sportsbook on Saturday during the college football season and you will see lines of people frantically filling out hopefully soon-to-be winning college football parlay cards.

At many sportsbooks, ties win on their parlay cards. The Internet has really opened things up. Now you can shop around for the best parlay card rates – and you better shop. Many sportsbooks have adopted a standard rate, but there's usually 1 or 2 that's different. Of course, the real reason to shop around is the point spread. In college football, it's possible to save a couple points (sometimes more – depending on how large the spread is) by shopping around.

Just what are your odds of actually hitting a college football parlay card? As you may know, your odds increase with the number of teams selected. In my opinion, there's no reason to play a two-team parlay card. You are better betting both games straight up. Therefore, I am going to start with a three team parlay card and give you the probability of winning.

Your best parlay card is the three-team parlay. Most sports books will pay 6-1 for a winner, which is just slightly less than the true odds. The higher you go, the larger the difference between the payout and the true odds. Of course, you will not be thinking about true odds when you bag a nice ten-team parlay card. It's quite the rush.

If you have never played a parlay card, it's time you start. Do not miss out on one of the most exciting things to do during the college football season. Make it a point to put in at least one parlay card – a three-team parlay card to start. Now, get out there and win some money on college football.
