College Football Week 7 Best Bets

Well, after looking to the Alabama Crimson Tide for our best bets a couple of times this season and coming up short, you can expect a lack of Crimson Tide picks, at least for the next few weeks.

As we look toward Week 7, the Crimson Tide beat Texas A&M in Week 6, but nowhere close to their -24. Now, they sit at No. 3 in the nation behind No. 1 Georgia and No. 2 Ohio State.

That said, what are the best bets for this week? Let’s look into it.

Michigan State vs. Wisconsin

Pick: Wisconsin -7.5 (-104) at FanDuel

We don’t love laying seven and the hook here when heading into Michigan State, but Wisconsin is simply the better team front and back.

The Spartans rank 87th in the nation, giving up 153.5 rushing yards per game, and this week, they face a Badgers rushing attack led by Chez Mellusi and Braelon Allen. Overall, the Badgers rushing attack this season has combined 160 carries for 857 yards and seven touchdowns.

Also, the Badgers’ defense has been excellent this season, ranking 33rd in the nation against the run.

Badgers quarterback Graham Mertz is much improved from last season, including a 299-yard, five-touchdown performance against Northwestern.

Again, don’t love the added hook here, but we’ll take the Badgers.

One of the best stories of the college football season, James Madison, has been fantastic this year against their opponents.

They’re 5-0 and allow 227.4 yards of total offense to teams per game.

Georgia Southern has shown they can score some points (45 against Nebraska), but James Madison, now ranked No. 25, are a different animal.

James Madison averages over 274 passing yards and 213 rushing yards per game on offense.

A backdoor cover is possible at 11 points and Georgia Southern’s ability to score points, but James Madison should be able to handle this one.

Heading to Salt Lake City, the 6-0 USC Trojans face their most formidable task this season in No. 20 Utah.

The Utes average over 200 rushing yards per game, and their quarterback, Cam Rising, has been outstanding this year with over 1,400 passing yards, 13 touchdowns, and just three interceptions while completing 68% of his passes.

The Trojans average over 40 points per contest, but Utah has a well-equipped defense, and it would be surprising if that happened here.

USC has shown that its offense can falter, scoring just 17 on the road against Oregon State and 17 in the first half against Washington State (finished with 30).

Utah has the 22nd-best defense in the nation in terms of total yards allowed at just under 316 yards. They’ve allowed just 14 touchdowns all season, and at home, they should be able to stifle the Trojans' offense, leading to a nice under.
