49 Days Football

Christmas comes early in 2023, football fans. Starting October 4, there’s 49 days of football in a row! In case 27 consecutive days last year wasn’t enough to satisfy the hunger, odds will also be available for every one of these days at the best college football betting sites and NFL betting apps too.

Whether it’s the NFL on Monday Night Football, Tuesday night MACtion, or new Wednesday night Conference USA action, you won’t have to wake up on a non-football day until Thanksgiving. And even then, Wednesday, Nov. 22, is the only day in that stretch through the remainder of the college football regular season to take a breath.
