Football is football. If the game is played at a high level, to me, it’s entertaining. However, I’ve always been a bigger fan of College Football than the NFL for a few reasons. NFL betting is the same as College Football Betting. First off, the rivalries and traditions in the NFL just don’t compare to College Football. And let’s not forget the most important thing – the ladies. Female NFL fans have NOTHING on the hotties you will find in the student section at a College Football game.
What College Football and the NFL have in common…
Well, obviously they’re both versions of football. Being less obvious, both sports attract massive crowds and high gambling interest. Some say Vegas built the NFL, and I won’t disagree, but College Football is also quite popular amongst sports bettors. I’ve been known to get down on College Football games from time to time. But I’d rather bet on NFL games. College Football is more exciting, in my opinion. I don’t need action on a game to enjoy it.
How the sports differ
There are many things about the sports that differ. First off, the NFL is a professional league, which means players are paid. Unless you play for USC, Ohio State, or in the SEC, College Football players aren’t paid to play – other than a free academic scholarship (which most don’t take advantage of). The biggest difference between the two sports is their system for determining a champion. The NFL has a full playoff system, whereas College Football has a bowl system and a bogus “championship” game that is determined mostly by biased voters.
Which sport is better?
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Personally, I still enjoy College Football more than I do the NFL. But I love to bet on the NFL more than I do College Football (not just the Super Bowl). Why do I prefer College Football to the NFL? Well, there are many reasons. The biggest reason is the traditions and rivalries. Don’t get me wrong, I think very highly of rivalries such as the Bears vs. Packers or Giants vs. Jets. But they just do not compare in terms of excitement to Michigan vs. Ohio State or Auburn vs. Alabama.
College Football atmospheres are also far superior to the NFL. The crowds are louder, the tailgating is better, and you there’s more excitement in the air. Game day is more of an event in College Football. I’ve been to games where kickoff wasn’t until 7:00 PM and there were fans gathered in the parking lot at 8:00 in the morning – bottles of Jack in hand!
Both sports are exciting. I couldn’t make it through a fall without football and Saturday AND Sunday. But, in the end, I’ve always been more favorable towards College Football. And I don’t think that will ever change.
