NCAA Football Week 7 ATS Betting Picks

Written by on October 9, 2018


After 6 weeks of the 2018 college football season, it’s clear who the favorites are for the National Championship. Alabama is very much at the top of the heap and they are followed by a very familiar cast of characters. Every team on that list of favorites is just one loss away from falling out of the top, though, and we have a few games this week that could impact the rankings. For now, we are going to focus on some NCAA Football Week 7 odds to bet against the spread, but we will also have SU and O/U picks later today, as well as some parlay tickets for you to play.
 

NCAA Football Week 7 ATS Betting Picks

 

Nebraska Cornhuskers at Northwestern Wildcats (-5 ½)


The Scott Frost regime in Nebraska is off to the worst start imaginable, with the Cornhuskers going winless through the first 5 weeks of the season. They will be looking to finally break that goose egg this weekend, but they have a rather tricky road trip to face the Northwestern Wildcats ahead of them.
 
The Wildcats are a disappointing 2-3 on the season, but it is what they have done against Nebraska that counts here. The Cornhuskers are just 2-5 ATS in their last 7 visits here, but perhaps more importantly, they have only managed 2 wins in their last 9 road games overall. I think the misery continues for Nebraska on Saturday.

Oklahoma State Cowboys (-6 ½) at Kansas State Wildcats


While it’s always a good idea to look at trends when teams go head to head, there are also times when you need to ignore those stats, look at the current season, and just go with your gut. That is what I am doing with this game. The Cowboys have been more than a little disappointing, already dropping a pair of games in the early going, but they are still better than this Kansas State team, who appear to be lacking confidence after losing 3 in a row.
 The Cowboys have only covered once in their last 6 meetings with Kansas State, yet my gut tells me that they are going to win and cover here. This is a risky play, but one that I am taking.

Texas A&M Aggies (-2 ½) at South Carolina Gamecocks


The Aggies are in rebuilding mode under new head coach Jimbo Fisher, but there are already signs of improvement in year one. The Aggies handed the Kentucky Wildcats their first loss of the season last week, with their only defeats this season coming at the hands of Alabama and Clemson, the latter of which they very nearly won.
Texas A&M looks like a good pick for NCAA Football Week 7.
The Gamecocks were supposed to be the biggest threat to Georgia in the SEC East this season, but they have been somewhat disappointing thus far. The Aggies have gone 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games and I think they cover again here.

  • Texas A&M is 6-1 ATS in its last 7 games
  • Texas A&M is 4-2 ATS in its last 6 games on the road
  • South Carolina is 4-2 ATS in its last 6 games
 

Miami Hurricanes (-6) at Virginia Cavaliers


The Hurricanes are coming off a huge come from behind victory over arch-rivals Florida State last week, a win that kept them alive in the race to be ACC Champions. They don’t really have time to savor that victory, as they head out on the road this week to face the 3-2 Cavaliers as a 6-point favorite.
 
This is another game where the stats don’t really justify my pick here, with the Hurricanes covering just once in their last 5 games against Virginia. The Cavaliers are 4-1 ATS this season as compared to the 3-3 record of the Hurricanes, yet I think it will be Miami who gets the job done.
