SMART BET College Football Week 7

College Football Week 7 Picks Against the SpreadSome quick week 7 college football picks against the spread as I’m ready to jet out of here. Updates to picks may follow.

1. Ohio State (-17) over INDIANA: Indiana is coming off a tough loss to Michigan State. Indiana played as good as they possibly could that game, but fell short. After taking a 27-14 lead into the half, they failed to score a single point in the 2nd half and lost 31-27. I think you see Ohio State come in here and crush Indiana as last week’s tough loss sets up a hangover game for Indiana where I see them coming out flat. Ohio State is coming off a 63-28 win over Nebraska and is rolling right now.

2. Alabama (-21) over MISSOURI: With all of the injuries to Missouri, especially to their QB James Franklin, Alabama looks like the play.

3.  Syracuse (+7.5) over RUTGERS: Good value play as Syracuse is a better football team than their record indicates and Rutgers is a bit overrated.

4. PITTSBURGH (+3) over Lousiville: This is the third straight road game for Louisville, but at least they’re coming off a bye week. It’s tough for any team to win three straight road games, so I see this as a good spot to take Pittsburgh with the 3 points. Pitt has won the last 4 matchups against Louisville.

5. NOTRE DAME (-7) over Stanford : I’m going to keep riding Notre Dame until proven otherwise. They’re 5-0 SU, 4-1 ATS, and they have the best defense in college football. They’ve made me good money this year.

    1 out of 5 is brutal. I hate these weeks. Thank goodness ND pushed so were only down 2 units. What’s your best 2 plays on sunday to get those back?

    Tough week even Alabama was a struggle. What is crazy though is how close we actually were to winning all of those bets. Take away the third quarter and Pitt wins outright. Syracuse played well but a couple lapses and the cover was just out of reach. Ohio state had a chance to go up 21 and threw a pick on the one yard line that eventually led to an IU td and gave them life again.

    There are a couple spot plays I like in the NFL. 1. Indianapolis at NYJ (-3.5) Indy comes off a huge emotional comeback win against Green Bay and now go on the road to New York. The Jets looked pretty good against the Texans and I expect them to play very well on Sunday. Their season isn’t lost and Sanchez should be able to excel against a weak Colts D. 2. Oakland at Atlanta (-9.5) Oak is playing the 1:00 game, which is a 10:00am game for them. Atlanta was lucky last week so look for them to play much more focused and win big this week. 3. New England (-3) at Seattle. I just don’t get this line. Seattle is the most overrated team in football. NE is playing their best football right now. I know Seattle is a tough place to win, but it can and will be done on Sunday.

    Good Luck

    I’m in agreement with all of Brandon’s NFL picks as I picked the Jets, Falcons, and Patriots. There were some tough breaks in Brandon’s picks this week. Louisville had a 95-yard TD catch in the 3rd to help them run away with that one. Rutgers had a blocked field goal, which was returned for a Rutgers TD, a 10-point swing. Ohio State was up by 18 with 5 minutes left until things fell apart from them.
