The advanced computer model at SportsLine has revealed its Week 7 college football picks.
There are several intriguing matchups on the Week 7 college football schedule, including No. 5 Michigan vs. No. 10 Penn State and No. 3 Alabama vs. No. 6 Tennessee (3:30 p.m. ET, CBS). There are also a number of ranked vs. ranked matchups on the schedule, which means there will be plenty of opportunities to find value in the Week 7 college football lines. Despite the fact that 65% of public bets at Caesars Sportsbook are on Tennessee, Alabama is a 9-point road favorite at Neyland Stadium. Should you place your Week 7 college football bets on the Crimson Tide or the Vols?
According to the most recent Week 7 college football odds, Michigan is a 7-point home favorite over the Nittany Lions. Michigan has won five of its six games by double digits, while Penn State is playing a ranked opponent for the first time this season. Before making any Week 7 college football picks on those or other games, check out SportsLine’s advanced computer model’s latest college football predictions.
Every FBS college football game is 10,000 times simulated by the SportsLine Projection Model. The proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of nearly $3,000 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread over the past six years. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive profits.
It has now turned its attention to the most recent Week 7 college football odds from Caesars and has locked in picks for every FBS game.
One of the model’s Week 7 college picks: No. 4 Clemson (-4.5) cruises to a double-digit win over Florida State on Saturday night. The Seminoles enter this game on a losing streak, having lost consecutive games to Wake Forest and NC State. Clemson has already defeated both of those teams, making this a bad matchup for the Seminoles.
Last week, Florida State quarterback Jordan Travis completed only 15 of 30 passes for 181 yards and one touchdown while throwing multiple interceptions for the first time this season. He’ll be up against a Clemson defense that leads the ACC in takeaways and is one of the best in college football. The Tigers’ rushing attack, which averages 4.6 yards per carry, has allowed them to control the pace of their games.
Clemson has won six straight games in this series, including a 45-14 victory in Tallahassee last year. SportsLine’s model predicts that the Tigers will cover the spread in well over 60% of simulations on Saturday night.
Another top college football pick from the model: No. 22 Kentucky (+4) keeps things close enough to cover the spread at home against No. 16 Mississippi State at 7:30 p.m. ET. The availability of Wildcats quarterback Will Levis, who missed last week with a foot/ankle injury, is central to the game’s narrative. However, Kentucky’s defense will have to be the game changer this week.
Mississippi State’s offensive line has held up despite the loss of left tackle Kwatrivous Johnson, but Kentucky has struggled to get to opposing quarterbacks this season, with only nine sacks. Despite this, the Wildcats have consistently been able to get off the field on third downs, holding offenses to a 31.3% conversion rate. Kentucky has also allowed only three passing touchdowns and five interceptions this season, while holding opponents to 6.3 yards per attempt.
The model predicts that Mississippi State QB Will Rogers will still have close to 350 passing yards, but that will be about it for the Bulldogs on the road. While that may be enough to win, it will not be enough to cover, as Kentucky is more than 50% of the time within the number. See which other teams the model likes by clicking here.
