San Diego State Aztecs Odds

Bet on SDSU men's football in California
UCLA football odds

San Diego State football fans do their best to forget about the early years of the 2000s when their team couldn’t put together a winning record. But then 2010 rolled around, and since then the Aztecs have had 11 winning seasons.

For bettors, that upswing has been something to take note of. With Brady Hoke back as head coach and the team not only going 12-2 in the 2021-22 season but also winning the West division of their conference and a bowl game, the future for SDSU football betting could very well be bright.

How to bet on SDSU football online in California

Below find the four most common SDSU bet types you’ll find at legal California online sportsbooks. You can get a more in-depth look at each of these bet types by visiting our pages dedicated to each one.

What is the San Diego State football moneyline? 

 If you want a simple-to-understand entry-level bet type, then there is nothing easier than the moneyline. Even the most experienced bettors will make bets using the moneyline, though it has proven to be more popular with newcomers to the hobby.

The simple explanation of what a moneyline bet is is that you have two teams playing each other and your bet hinges on picking the team that will win.

At PointsBet Sportsbook, you will find a nice selection of moneyline bets for all of the major NCAA football games. While their selection may not be as deep as some of their competition, PointsBet has competitive odds and some nice promotions for existing customers.

An example of a moneyline bet at PoinsBet could look like this:

  • San Diego State Aztecs       -115
  • Fresno State Bulldogs         +130

Right away we can tell which team is the underdog and which is the favorite simply by looking at the odds. What does “+” and “-” mean in sports betting? Negative odds, such as SDSU’s -115, indicate the team is expected to win by the sportsbook oddsmakers. The positive odds show us who the underdog is. The larger the difference between the two numbers, the more of a one-sided game is expected.

Negative odds also show us how much we need to bet if we hope to win $100. In this case, a $115 bet on the Aztecs would pay out $215, which is the original stake returned to you plus the $100 in profit.

Positive numbers show us how much we stand to win with a $100 bet. A successful $100 bet on the Bulldogs would pay out $230, which is the bet amount plus $130 in winnings.

You don’t have to bet that much, or that little, for that matter. You can bet however much you want and your winnings will be calculated on the betting odds you locked in at the sportsbook when you finalized your bet.

What is the SDSU Aztecs point spread?

The point spread bet is valuable for the fact that it pretty much makes any game “even” for the bettor. Instead of having a one-sided blowout as many NCAA football games can be, the point spread makes betting on the underdog a bit more feasible.

At FanDuel, point spread betting has proven to be very popular with their existing customers. They have a nice selection with very competitive odds that are set by their in-house oddsmakers.

A point spread matchup example that you could find in the FanDuel Sportsbook app could look like this:

  • San Diego State Aztecs       -3.5 (-110)
  • Central Michigan University Chippewas   +3.5 (-110)

Like the moneyline above, we can see which team is the favorite in the point spread by looking for those negative and positive numbers. The negative, once again, indicates which team the oddsmakers at FanDuel expect to win and by how much. In this case, SDSU is the favorite and should win by four points or more.

If they fail to do that — even if they win by three points or fewer — then bets on Central Michigan would win.

The odds for both sides of this bet are -110, which means you would have to bet $110 if you hoped to win $100 in profit.

What is the San Diego State football over/under?

This bet, known also as a totals bet, is one of the few that doesn’t require you to care who wins the game. Instead, your only focus is how many points you believe the two teams playing will combine to score.

At Caesars online sportsbook, totals bets are one of the more popular bet types and because of that, they tend to offer up a nice selection for pretty much every sport they have bets for.

While they may not be as robust as their competitors in the moneyline and point spread departments, Caesars does well by the bettors who enjoy totals for NCAA football.

An example of a Caesars sportsbook totals bet you might come across is:

  • Over   48.5 (-110)
  • Under  48.5 (-110)

The oddsmakers at Caesars, in this example, have decided the two teams playing will score 48.5 points. Since a half-point isn’t possible in the game, that means anyone who bets on the under will want 48 points or fewer scored, while those with money on the over will want 49 or more.

If the final score of the game ended up 21-19, then the final total would be just 40 points, meaning the under would win. Both sides of the bet carry -110 odds, which work the same as the examples above.

San Diego State Aztecs prop bets 

The prop bet has become one of the most popular bet types in the sports betting industry. Part of that is because they are just plain different than most other bets, and part of it is they can be focused on actual performances in the game instead of just final scores and winners/losers.

At DraftKings, their prop bets for NCAA football are pretty diverse. The more popular games get a bit more attention in that department, but, rarely, you won’t have at least a few opportunities to bet on props at DraftKings.

With competitive odds and some of the most reputable customer service available today, the DraftKings betting site has developed a strong following of sports bettors.

While you’ll find a large variety of prop bets at most sportsbooks, they aren’t always the same. Make sure to do some shopping around to find a sportsbook that has the offerings that interest you.

One such prop bet might look like this:

  • Will San Diego State University’s defense have a pick-six in the game? Yes (+225) or No (+150)

Prop bets can range from super serious and focused primarily on the game itself to pretty ridiculous with fun as the main objective. No matter which prop bets you prefer, remember that they are notorious for being difficult to research and predict. Use a smart betting strategy and solid bank management when considering prop bets.
