NCAA Football Week 7 Top 25 Matchups

CFB Handicapping Week 7

Freddy Wills

Freddy Wills

I will make an effort to give my sports betting advice or a quick over view of the games you want to know about. The Top 25 match ups each week is where most of the eyes turn. Last week I went 5-1-1 on premium plays last Saturday making me 16-6 the last four Saturday’s. We are now 8-2 on POD’s in college football and we are coming of money line winner of Western Michigan +305!


I have some big plays on some of the bigger match ups of the weekend including Oklahoma vs. Texas our Game of the Week.


#20 Oklahoma vs. Texas (Texas -3.5)
(Saturday 12:00 pm et)

Texas got the win last year and then Oklahoma got the National Championship birth over them. Was it unfair? You bet it was. Texas was sparked by Shipley’s kick return TD last year. Will Texas have more magic in a revenge type game this year?

#7 Ohio State vs. Purdue (Ohio State -13.5)
(Saturday 12pm et)

Ohio State took care of Wisconsin last week and will look to continue their undefeated record in the Big Ten. Ohio State has struggled on offense, but Purdue is allowing an average over 30 points a game and have lost to an opponent that is ranked 19 straight times. Make it twenty.

#11 Iowa vs. Wisconsin (Wisconsin -3)
(Saturday 12pm et)

Iowa will be going for their 11th straight win when they go into Wisconsin. It might not be so easy as they will be under dogs in this one. The Hawkeyes are all about defense and they seem to have a knack for forcing turnovers. Wisconsin unfortunately has a knack for turning the ball over in my opinion this goes to Iowa.

#23 Houston vs. Tulane (Houston -17.5)
(Saturday 3:30 pm et)

Houston might be looking at the outside of the Top 25 soon. They lose to UTEP big 2 weeks ago, and then UTEP lost to Memphis. In my opinion making them over rated. They will battle again inside the C-USA, but this time as big favorites. Houston is 10-4 all timeTulane and I think we’ll see them continue on that trend Saturday.

#6 USC vs. Notre Dame (USC -10)
(Saturday 3:30 pm et)

This is not even close to being a top 25 battle and I think we will see that on Saturday when USC walks all over Notre Dame in their own building. Charlie Weis has got to go! I’m not a Notre Dame fan at all, but I am tired of people talking about them and Weis is just a very bad coach. He’s got all the resources and they still can not get it together. USC has more talent and Notre Dame’s defense is terrible. I don’t like taking favorites on the road with double digits with a freshmen QB otherwise I’d be all over this. I think USC wins big!

#15 Nebraska vs. Texas Tech (Nebraska -5.5)
(Saturday 3:30 pm et)

Texas Tech has been able to put up the points no matter who plays at QB. Potts may go or it may be Sheffield. Nebraska is #14 against the pass so it will go along way to find out if that is accurate when they go up against Texas Tech. I believe Nebraska is the real deal, but this game will be closer than many think.

#14 Penn State vs. Minnesota (Penn State -17.5)
(Saturday 3:30pm)

Penn State will resume their FBS schedule after walking over Eastern Illinois last week. They will face Minnesota at home and the Gophers are ranked last in the Big Ten in total offense, while the Nittany Lions are first in defense. Seems like Penn State should be able to move the ball whenever they want in this one.

#1 Florida vs. Arkansas (Florida -24.5)
(Saturday 3:30pm et)

Last week we had Arkansas to defeat Auburn as three point under dogs and they won by 20 points so we had a nice easy cover. Saturday Florida will be more than 3 TD favorites against a team that is not terrible and actually pretty good. Oddsmakers are thinking Tebow is back for good and I believe it too, but I still think they are getting way too many points in this situation. Don’t be surprised to see a cover here for Arkansas.

#12 TCU vs. Colorado State (TCU -22)
(Saturday 4:00pm et)

TCU fell in the Top 25 poll despite being undefeated. They will look to win in dominating fashion against Colorado State at home. Colorado State has not beaten a ranked opponent since 2002 and I don’t think they are about to start to do that this year.

#18 BYU vs. San Diego State (BYU -17.5)
(Saturday 6:00 pm et)

BYU will look to continue their winning streak in conference play. Their offense seems to be back on track as they have scored 136 points in their last three games combined. Oh they also own a 25-7-1 lead over San Diego State in this series so I think we can assume they will win, but covering the spread might be a different monster.

#4 Virginia Tech vs. #19 Georgia Tech (Virginia Tech -3)
(Saturday 6:00 pm et)

Two Tech teams meet in ACC play in what looks like to be the best two teams in conference along with Miami looking in. Many are picking Georgia Tech to win this game, but if Virginia Tech can stop the triple option like I feel they can I think they continue to roll here with the road chalk. Take the Hokies.

#17 Kansas vs. Colorado (Kansas -10)
(Saturday 7:00 pm et)

Reesing and the Kansas offense just rolls along in what I consider to be the weak division of the Big 12 conference. Colorado gave Texas all they could eat last week as they were up in the middle of the 3rd quarter 14-10. However, mistakes and sloppy special teams play cost them this game. They saw a blogged punt, and a punt return TD, as well as a 92 yard interception taken back for a TD. Don’t hold your breath with Kansas this Colorado team is no joke and playing in the high elevation this may be closer than many think.

#9 Miami vs. UCF (Miami -15.5)
(Saturday 7:30 pm et)

Miami continues its mid-season non-conference schedule when they visit another Florida school in UCF. Miami will look to go 5-1 for the first time since 2005. I have been one of their doubters all season long and picked against them when they played Virginia Tech, but they shocked me against Oklahoma. I think they cover the modest spread for a team that is definitely good.

#2 Alabama vs. #22 South Carolina (Alabama -175)
(Saturday 7:45 pm et)

Alabama was awfully impressive on defense last week in a 22-3 win when they took down Ole Miss on the road. I had Miss in that game and was disappointed how their offense did not show up. However, the defense was right there and stopped Alabama time after time something South Carolina just may be able to do if they can score some points this game could be close.

#16 Oklahoma State vs. Missouri (Oklahoma State -7)
(Saturday 9:15pm et)

Oklahoma State escaped with a win against Texas A&M last week barely. This is one team staying in the Top 25 all based on pre season expectations, but they have not met up to them at all. This will be a tough game if they are without Dez Bryant and if they are playing without them it’s a game I think Missouri can steal on the road. Either way I would not lay the chalk at home with Oklahoma State they have showed me nothing this season.

#24 Utah vs. UNLV (Utah -16.5)
(Saturday 10:05 pm et)

Utah has beaten Louisville and Colorado State and will start to face conference opponents. Up first is UNLV, who has lost three games in a row now. Utah’s defense will be tested by UNLV’s impressive passing offense. It’s likely too many points, but nonetheless should be a great game.
