2018 College Football Week 7 Betting Odds

Filling a slow sports day during the week and with a chance to showcase the conference with no competition, the Sun Belt will send two of its top teams into a Tuesday night game to open Week 7 of the 2018 college football schedule. Appalachian State will forever be remembered for its upset victory over Michigan in 2007. The Mountaineers were a Division I-AA program at the time and have since moved up to the I-A level, or FBS as it’s now known. They tied for the Sun Belt title last season and are expected to contend for the league’s East Division title. Arkansas State was a game off the pace in 2017, but the Red Wolves are the class of the West. We could be witnessing a preview of the Sun Belt Conference championship game.

There’s a full plate of football even before we get to Saturday’s loaded schedule. A Texas-sized Big 12 battle takes place in Fort Worth between Texas Tech and TCU on Thursday night. Georgia Southern and Texas State will also get together in a Sun Belt clash. Two games out west are slated for Friday to appease the night owls. Look for a lot of yards to be chewed up on the ground when Air Force visits San Diego State in a Mountain West tussle. Later Friday night we get a Pac-12 South meeting with Arizona visiting Utah. A full day of football is set for Saturday with key conference matchups lined up around the country.

2018 NCAA Football Week 7 Betting Schedule

October 9th, 2018 to October 15th, 2018

Tuesday, October 9

Appalachian State at Arkansas State, 8 p.m. ET (ESPN2)

Thursday, October 11

Georgia Southern at Texas State, 7:30 p.m. ET (ESPNU)

Texas Tech at TCU, 7:30 p.m. ET (ESPN)

Week seven live betting gets off to a great start thanks to a Big 12 Thursday night game between two teams that are capable but struggling when the TCU Horned Frogs host the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Inconsistency has plagued both teams and they have little margin for error. Additionally, there has been a good share of criticism for both teams as more was expected from them. Once again Texas Tech has a great offense but no defense. For TCU they again have a good but not great defense and an offense that has been sluggish. More

Friday, October 12

South Florida at Tulsa, 7 p.m. ET (ESPN)

Week seven will include a Friday night appetizer on ESPN when the struggling Tulsa Golden Hurricane hosts the undefeated University of South Florida Bulls in American Athletic Conference action. There are a multitude of live betting angles and possibilities to consider. The overall weakness of Tulsa could leave betting opportunities on South Florida. But you may also find plenty of opportunities on fading the public by taking potentially enhanced betting value on the Golden Hurricane. In fact, South Florida may be undefeated but they have not brought much in the way of betting value so far. More

Air Force at San Diego State, 9 p.m. ET (CBSSN)

Arizona at Utah, 10 p.m. ET (ESPN)

The Utah Utes finally won a conference game last week, and they are looking to make it two in a row this Friday night when they take on the Arizona Wildcats. Utah narrowly lost to Washington State two weeks ago, but the Utes got out a lot of frustration in a 40-21 rout of Stanford in Palo Alto on Saturday. Meanwhile, Arizona is feeling much better after bad losses to BYU and Houston to start the season, and the Wildcats have won three of their last four. The loser of this game is essentially eliminated from contention in the PAC-12 South, so both teams know what’s at stake here. More

Saturday, October 13

Colorado at USC, TBD

Washington at Oregon, TBD

Week seven includes what will be one of the most important Pac 12 Conference games all season as the Oregon Ducks will be a potentially live home dog when they host a Washington Huskies team that is considered the favorite to win the league. Washington features one of the top defenses in the country but has suffered from an inconsistent offense that has been a source of perpetual frustration. Oregon has a good offense but has been quite vulnerable on defense. As a result, the live betting matchup opportunities could be in constant flux for maximum value and advantage. More

UCLA at California, TBD

Purdue at Illinois, TBD

Missouri at Alabama, TBD

Ole Miss at Arkansas, TBD

Tennessee at Auburn, TBD

Georgia at LSU, TBD

The Georgia Bulldogs are on a collision course to meet Alabama once again near the end of the college football season. However, this time it may be in the SEC Championship game with a berth in the CFP at stake. With a gauntlet of games upcoming for the Bulldogs, they better not look ahead to what could be. The next four opponents on Georgia’s schedule are all currently ranked beginning with Saturday’s trip to Death Valley to take on the LSU Tigers, who saw their chances of winning the SEC West take a hit with an upset loss in the Swamp last week. And that’s the beauty of SEC football: you never know what’s going to happen. More

Texas A&M at South Carolina, TBD

Florida at Vanderbilt, TBD

Louisville at Boston College, TBD

Duke at Georgia Tech, TBD

Miami at Virginia, TBD

Virginia Tech at North Carolina, TBD

Michigan State at Penn State, TBD

Week seven includes an important Big Ten Conference matchup between the Michigan State Spartans and Penn State Nittany Lions as both teams are coming off painful home losses. For the Spartans their loss last week at home to Northwestern was a stark reminder about their offensive limitations. For Penn State their home loss two weeks ago in their white out game against Ohio State has been seen by many as a give away that fans will need a long time to get over. With both teams looking to get back on track the live betting options will focus on the contrasting strengths and weaknesses of the matchup. More

Wisconsin at Michigan, TBD

The Michigan Wolverines have yet to finish higher than third in the Big Ten East under Jim Harbaugh, and that has the locals a little grumpy. Harbaugh is in no danger of losing his job anytime in the near future after posting a 28-11 record in his previous three seasons and turning around a rudderless program. However, there are whispers that while Harbaugh is great at turning teams around, he isn’t the right person to lead them over the hump. He is looking to silence the remaining doubters this year, and his Wolverines will look to keep it rolling against the Wisconsin Badgers this Saturday. More

Week 7 College Football Games of the Week

Central Florida at Memphis, Saturday, October 13

UCF beat Memphis twice last season on its way to a spot in a New Year’s Six bowl game and an undefeated season. As is the case with most mid-major programs that experience success, the big boys come calling to lure a promising coaching candidate. Such was the case for the Knights, who watched Scott Frost leave for Nebraska. The Knights are still in good shape and have plenty of talent for a repeat of their American Athletic Conference title. In 2015 the Knights failed to win a game, prompting the Frost hire. Two years later they go 13-0 with a Peach Bowl victory over Auburn.

The MVP of that bowl win, quarterback McKenzie Milton is back for another go after tearing up the Tigers last season. Milton threw for 747 yards and eight touchdowns with an additional 156 yards rushing in the two games. In the AAC Championship, Milton threw for 494 yards and the teams combined for nearly 1,500 yard of offense in UCF’s 62-55 double overtime victory. Both teams will compete for division titles and if this game is anything near what we saw last December, fans are in for a treat.

Wisconsin at Michigan, Saturday, October 13

Is this the year Jim Harbaugh finally takes the Michigan Wolverines to the Big Ten Championship Game? He’s come close in his tenure, but has failed to win the big games. This one ranks up there as a big game; Not Ohio State big, but big in stature and big in the standings. And if Michigan is able to break the spell, they very well could face the Badgers at Lucas Oil Stadium in early December.

Wisconsin trails the all-time series by a bunch, but they are 3-1 in the last four meetings. The only loss in that stretch came at the Big House in 2016 when Harbaugh’s club pulled out a 14-7 victory. Some might say the Badgers have an easier path to the title game in the less competitive West Division, but they still have to win, which they’ve done plenty of under Paul Chryst.
