Early Favorites: NCAAF Teams to Watch in the 2013 Season

College football is known to be one of the purest games in the world. The players aim at showing their natural talent out in the field and focus more on the pride and glory of their institute. They aren’t paid for playing for the team and most of them hope to gain entry into the NFL through such college competitions. Most sports bettors aren’t aware of the fact that college football betting is one of the largest betting markets in the world of online bookmaking. One of the biggest reasons behind this is that the action isn’t just limited to the 14 weeks of the regular season. Football wagering is also available for the Bowl games that take place in the months of December and January. You can bet America waits for this event every year. Websites like provide complete knowledge about how to wager on football and follow the right strategies to increase your chances of winning.

For many enthusiasts, the previous season’s wins and losses would still be a recent memory. However, the oddsmakers who know football odds better than casual fans have already started making predictions for the upcoming 2013 season. For the diehard NCAA bettors, this is the perfect time to jump in and be a part of the early action. Those who love to wager on NCAA football, there would be no better time than now to channel their energy towards the gameplay of some of the early favorites of 2013. There are certain teams that are expected to perform brilliantly in the upcoming season.


The Alabama Crimson Tide football team, representing the University of Alabama in the America Football Association matches, has won the previous two championships with their excellent performance. It is likely that they would be enjoying a hat-trick, something which is not seen very often as far as college football, or even fantasy football, is concerned. Though they have lost some players in this year’s NFL draft picks including Eddie Lacy (Running Back), Warmack, Fluker and Jones (Offensive Linemen) and Dee Milliner (Defence), the coach knows how to recruit a new lot and fill in those empty spots to get the team back on track. When all is said and done, Alabama is yet again the number one contender for this year’s title for the third time in a row.


There won’t be much problem for the Cardinals. Stanford has always been one of the most physically strong  teams in the league; and it appears no less strong this year. Though they have lost some of their key players to the NFL, they are no less resilient with four new offensive linemen and ten defense starters who managed to shut down Oregon’s prolific offense in the previous season. If any team can play each and every game with that smashing mentality, it is the Stanford Cardinal. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see them locking horns with Alabama in the finals, as it wasn’t when the team ranked above all in the public polls


With Chip Kelly now being Philadelphia Eagles’ head coach, the Ducks are, to a certain extent, in a tough state this coming season. However, Mark Helfrich holds the capability to do exactly what David Shaw was able to with the Stanford Cardinals. Their offense will still remain to be the most prolific, high-flying and electrifying in the league.will still remain to be the most prolific, high-flying and electrifying in the league. It would also be amazing to look forward to how Mariota takes the reign of the team’s offense and manage to put some good points on the board after the departure of Barner, Dion Jordan and Kiko Alonso. Moreover, with QB Marcus Mariota returning after an extraordinary freshman year, along with De’Anthony Thomas, who can emerge as an elite in the game, the Oregon Ducks have all the required ingredients to make an appearance in the finals. 

With every team focusing more on honing their skills at hand, the 2013 season would definitely be a significant one in the history of college football. This can also be considered as a great time to support your favorite team by placing your bet online.
