College Football Taking Steps to Shorten Game Length

College Football Taking Steps to Shorten Game Length

Recently, the PAC-12 has launched a pilot program implementing certain measures to shorten several non-conference college football games on its network. Halftimes will be reduced from 20 to 15 minutes this season and there will be fewer commercials cutting several minutes of advertising. It is not clear what games will be affected by this new program yet as visiting teams will be required to approve the shortened halftime measure first.

Other sports already adopted similar strategies lately, the NBA aims to shorten the last minutes of games while the NFL will lower the number of commercials per quarter. The NCAA instead, introduced a few measures in the NIT in college basketball.

The length of a college football game is determined by an increase in scoring and the subsequent video review that was introduced about ten years ago. In 2016 the average number of points per team reached 30 points. Let's then not forget about the game clock stopping and the commercial airing before the kickoff.

The team with the highest scored last year, the Red Raiders, scored more than 43 points per game, in fact, their average game length hit an average of 3:48.

A research from the PAC-12 Networks and the ESPN shows how 30% of viewers tuned out after the first half of the game, this concerning data brought the urge for sports leagues to take actions.

To keep fans more engaged in the game it is crucial to apply these changes. In fact, in 2016 the average game length in the Bowl Subdivision reached 3 hours and 24 minutes setting a record for being the longest average college football game in history.

Sports events are synonym of social and cultural events where sports fans gather together to have a good time interacting with each other. The dynamic nature of the game itself and its social impact imply watching it in the moment, making TV on demand not an option in this case.

Those who like to bet at sports at online casinos won't be much affected as far as their in-game wagering is concerned.

NFL and NCAA betting are very similar, the most common types of college football bets are: spread betting, money line betting, over-under betting and prop betting.

Spread betting means betting on a specific team to win but not only, a certain number of points are posted on the spread by the oddsmakers. For the bet to be won, the winning team must score more points than the ones set by the oddsmakers.

A bet on the underdog instead is won when the underdog team loses by less than the amount of points set for the favored team or if they simply win the game.

Money line betting is a very easy form of betting, often chosen by beginners and it simply involves picking the winning team and betting on it.

Over-under betting, also known as total betting, is when a bet is placed on the total amount of points scored by the two teams combined. Also in this type of bet, the oddsmakers will post a number of points that refer to the total amount of points scored by both teams during the game. Bettors can bet on a number of total points that can be above (over) or below (under) the posted points. Prop betting is very popular in bowl games but it is also available for college football games. Bettors can bet on individual player performances, on half time scores, on future outcomes, on the national championship winner, on the first player to score a touchdown.

To bet risk-free there are several online casinos and sportsbooks no deposit casinos with bonuses. Besides no deposit bonuses, college football betting fans can take advantage of multiple promotions at different online sportsbooks.

A sign up bonus, usually ranging between 15% and 50%, is awarded on top of the first deposit. Bettors will have to wager their balance a specific amount of times before being able to cash out, therefore, it's important to always be aware of the terms and conditions for each individual promotion.

Some online sportsbooks will also offer a free bet bonus, matching the amount of the first bet. For example, a $20 deposit is made and a $20 bet is placed. In this case, an extra $20 bet is awarded but it won't include the stake. Also in this case the operator will require a certain rollover before releasing any free bet winnings.

Betting college football online gives the opportunity to access the odds directly, to wager on the favorite team and it is an exciting opportunity for fans to win big this season.
