College football season is heating up, with a ton of huge games this weekend that could have a profound impact on the playoff picture.
And with great college football games comes great betting opportunities for gamblers. Granted, some of these games should be so good you don’t even need to put money on them to enjoy them — looking at you, Georgia @ LSU.
That said, it’s fun to pick a side and attempt to predict the future.
Take a look below for our seven best bets of the Week 7 college football slate.
LAST WEEK: 3-4
Penn State (-13.5) over Michigan State
Penn State is home, coming off a bye, and mad as hell that they blew their shot at Big Ten dominance with a bad fourth-down play call against Ohio State on White Out night.
Michigan State just lost to Northwestern and has looked lackluster throughout the season. This could be a bounce-back spot for the Spartans, but Penn State has proven time and time again their ability to run up the score, and I think they come out blazing to erase the memory of their loss to the Buckeyes.
UCLA (+7) over California
If UCLA is going to win a game this season, they’re running out of chances. That said, they looked the best they had all season last week against Washington, and a rivalry game might be the perfect place to bring in their first win of the year.
Air Force (+10.5) over San Diego State
Air Force is just 2-3 on the season, but they’ve been competitive in every game they’ve played. While San Diego State is surging, riding four straight wins into the matchup, they’re also coming off of the biggest win of their season after traveling to Boise and beating the Broncos on their infamous blue turf — that’s all well and good for the Aztecs, but it also makes this the perfect spot for a let down.
With the extra half-point hook, take the points and hope that Air Force can keep things close.
