Another type of wagering is quarter betting. This allows you to bet on whatever happens ONLY in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th quarter of a game. One may wonder why anybody would make such a wager and we did too until we went seeking the advice of some well known sharp bettors.
There are two spots in which quarter bets are a decent play.
1. When your liking a big underdog in a college game and are able to get better than +7 across the board in all four quarters. Often times sharps will look to get 7 "and" the hook (1/2 point) or better hoping that their underdog covers a one touchdown margin more often than not during the game or better yet over the course of the season. With that being said, it's all about more wins than losses (beating 52.38%) over the course of the season.
It's a well known fact that college football favorites over 30 points have a poor rate of covering the spread so this may be a great value bet in certain spots.
2. A GREAT spot for a first quarter bet is a team that gets out of the box quick. Often times the bookie already knows this and it's factored into the line however there can be some great value found in small college football and basketball games.
Outside of the two notes listed above, quarter betting is fairly worthless (in our estimation) and not something to spend too much time on.
