As we head into the second half of the season, things should really be starting to take shape in the conference and playoff races. The pressure really starts to build from here on out, as we are now just a couple of weeks away from the Playoff Committee releasing their first rankings of the season. There are some big games on the schedule that could have an impact on those rankings, so let’s get to the top games to bet on during the 2018 NCAA Football Week 7.
2018 NCAA Football Week 7 Betting Picks
O-LINE ALERT 🚨 @VanceVice discussed the leadership, versatility & developing performers on Tech’s offensive front!

Miami Hurricanes at Virginia Cavaliers – Both of these teams finished last season on a low note, but it was Miami’s collapse at the end that was the most painful. The Hurricanes were 10-0 heading into the final game of the season, which they lost to Pitt.
They then lost in the ACC Championship Game and their bowl game, bringing a disappointing end to what was a promising season. Miami pounded Virginia when they met in 2017, which was part of a losing run that saw the Cavaliers lose 6 of their last 7, including their bowl game. Look for the Hurricanes to win big again this year.
Texas Tech Red Raiders at TCU Horned Frogs – A good week for college football fans, as we will be treated to a Thursday night game with this one. Texas Tech is always a fun team to watch, as there is generally a lot of offense involved in the games that they play.
The lone exception to that rule in 2017 came in their game against TCU when they were held to just 3 points in a 27-3 loss. The Red Raiders will be out for revenge but will be in tough against a Horned Frogs team that looks set to have another very good season.
Wisconsin Badgers at Michigan Wolverines – This one ranks up there as one of the best games on the Week 7 schedule, as it features a pair of teams who believe they have a legitimate shot at the Big Ten title. The Badgers lost just one game season, but it came at the worst time, as their loss in the Conference Championship Game almost certainly cost them a playoff spot.
The Wolverines are looking for a bounce back year after having a disappointing time of it in 2017. I think we have a low scoring affair here, which Michigan coming out on top at home.
Washington Huskies at Oregon Ducks – It’s probably not right to call one of the favorites to win the PAC 12 a dark horse, but when you are talking about the bigger picture, that is where the Washington Huskies sit right now.
I like this team a lot and think they have the opportunity to win the conference and get a PAC 12 team back in the playoffs after the conference missed out in 2017. This will be one of the trickier games on the schedule for Washington, but I like them to get the win.
Georgia Bulldogs at LSU Tigers – The Bulldogs are the favorites to once again win the East Division, but they have some very tough games on their schedule this season.
A trip to face LSU in their own backyard is never an easy one to make, and while there are some questions about the Tigers on both sides of the ball this season, they are still going to be tough to break down at home. This could well be a tight one, but I think Georgia ekes out the win.
