College Football Week 7 Picks Against the Spread

College Football Week 7 Picks


After scanning through the week 7 college football lines, here are some lines that stand out to me. As a reminder, this is based off a quick scan. Therefore, do your own due diligence before taking any games. Good luck.

  • MICHIGAN STATE (-7) over Illinois — Michigan State is off to a 6-0 start with impressive wins over Notre Dame and @Michigan. Michigan State’s offense has been rolling and Illinois D has some problems. At home, I’m confident in giving up the 7 as I see Michigan State topping Illinois by 13.
  • North Carolina State (-7.5) over EAST CAROLINA – NC State has been rather impressive this season getting off to a 5-1 start. Eastern Carolina games have been crazy this year. They have no defense, but the offense can keep up. Seeing how North Carolina and Virginia Tech blew them out at ECU, I’m confident NC State can cruise past ECU for a win in the ballpark of 38-24.
  • NEBRASKA (-9.5) over Texas — So far nobody has been able to stop Nebraska’s running attack and Texas has been extremely disappointing falling out of the top 25. Although Texas has a respectable D, their offense has been sleeping, currently ranked 70th in the nation.  Last year’s matchup ended 13-12. I see Nebraska topping Texas 27-13 in this one. May be too many points against a good D, so teasing this game with another like Michigan State or North Carolina State may be a good option. I would give up concert tickets to see this one.
  • Utah (-21) over WYOMING — Utah’s offense has been explosive and Wyoming gives up a ton of points and has averaged just 12.5 points per contest. Look for Utah to roll by a score of 42-10.
  • Baylor (-2) over COLORADO — I don’t want to bet against too many home dogs, but I don’t see why Vegas is only spotting Colorado 2 points. Baylor has a much better offense and Colorado’s offense isn’t too much to worry about.
  • Air Force (-1) over SAN DIEGO STATE — Another game that looks like a road trap. However, I like Air Force’s #1 rushing attack against SDST. Last year Air Force topped SDST 24-16 and I’m expecting a similar outcome.
  • Nevada (-6.5) over HAWAII — The long trip to the island makes it tough, but you’re finally given a low spread for Nevada whose offense has been putting up points at will. Hawaii’s D won’t be able to stop them so they should score well into the 30’s while Hawaii may only get 24 points in this contest.
