Week 7 of the college football season is upon us and it is one of those rare weeks when we do not get a match-up that features ranked teams going head to head. Most of the top-ranked teams will be playing in games that they should win quite comfortably according to the NCAA odds, which means we are getting some point spreads that are large, to say the least.

Betting ATS is probably the best way to get some value and build your bankroll this weekend, which is why we have scoured the NCAAF Week 7 schedule to pick out some potential winners. We will have a couple of the bigger teams in there, but will also be looking at some games featuring unranked teams, as there is money to be made there, too.

The Best Against the Spread NCAA Picks for Week 7

Georgia Bulldogs (+30) Vs. Missouri Tigers

Date/Time: Saturday, October 14, 5:30 PM
Sanford Stadium, Athens, Georgia

The 1-4 Missouri Tigers head into Athens this weekend looking like a lamb to the slaughter. The Tigers have gone just 1-4 SU versus the Dawgs in their 5 years in the SEC, but perhaps more importantly, they are about to take on the #4 ranked team in the nation and a running game that is arguably the most feared in college football. The Tigers have surrendered a staggering 200 points through their first 5 games of the season, and when you consider that Georgia is giving up just 10 PPG, it’s easy to see why this one is likely going to be very lopsided.

Duke Blue Devils (+7) Vs. Florida State Seminoles

Date/Time: Saturday, October 14, 10:00 AM
Wallace Wade Stadium, Durham, North Carolina

I always like to go with one pick each week that is a little bit on the iffy side, and this would be it. Florida State have dominated this match-up, winning the last 10 meetings SU and going 8-2 ATS in those games. This would seem to suggest that Noles are a solid pick this weekend, but this is not the Florida State team that we have come to expect in recent years. They are struggling badly and look like a team devoid of confidence. Their loss to the Miami Hurricanes last week was particularly stinging, and it needs to be said that this looks like a team that has given up on the season. Look for Duke to spring the mild upset and cover.

Duke Blue Devils

BYU Cougars (+24) Vs. Mississippi State Bulldogs

Date/Time: Saturday, October 14, 10:00 AM
Davis Wade Stadium, Mississippi State, Mississippi

In the early part of the season, the Bulldogs were able to boast that they had the best offense in college football, but that all fell apart when they were held to just 3 points by Georgia. That loss seemed to knock all the confidence out of them, as they followed it up with a 49-10 loss to the Auburn Tigers. The Bulldogs has a bye week last weekend and may come out a little rusty in this one. BYU has been piling up the losses this season, but the one thing to note with this team is that they are 6-3 ATS in their last 9 games on the road. I certainly think Mississippi State will win this one, but I see the margin of victory being somewhere in the 10-14-point range.

West Virginia Mountaineers (-3) Vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders

Date/Time: Saturday, October 14, 10:00 AM
Milan Puskar Stadium, Morgantown, West Virginia

When you watch games featuring these two teams, the one thing that you don’t really expect to see is great defensive football. Both West Virginia and Texas Tech have been built with offense in mind, which is why the 79-point O/U total for this one is not as outlandish as it may appear. What we can expect here is the equivalent of a heavyweight battle, with each team trading big blows for four quarters. The ATS trends would appear to favor the Red Raiders here, but I like WVU at home, and I believe the spread is small enough for them to win and cover.
