2020 NCAAF Betting: ATS Picks for Week 7

Posted by Derrick Harper on October 12, 2020 in

Believe it or not, we’re starting Week 7 of the NCAAF season! Even though there’s only one matchup between ranked teams, it’s a matchup that could have major national title ramifications. Even with there being only one high-profile matchup, there are also some other intriguing games out there. Let’s take an early look at some of the spreads for this week’s college football games so you can set down your bets against their NCAAF odds.

NCAA Football Against the Spread Picks for Week 7

No. 3 Georgia at No. 2 Alabama (-6)

The only two unbeaten teams in the SEC will meet in Tuscaloosa, Ala., this weekend. Alabama’s offense will go up against a Georgia defense that has put the clamps on some high-powered offenses.

If Georgia’s offense can keep up with Alabama’s, we should have a great matchup. Nick Saban will have his defense ready, as he was disappointed in their effort last week against Ole Miss.

We think Alabama’s defense will come to play and will make things hard for Georgia’s inexperienced quarterback Stetson Bennett. Alabama wins by 10.

Pittsburgh at No. 13 Miami (-10)

Miami was disappointed with its performance last week against Clemson but knows that it still has a chance to play for the ACC championship if it can get back on the winning track. Pittsburgh will be a tough challenge for the Hurricanes.

The Panthers know that they made things difficult for themselves by losing a tough one to Boston College. Pittsburgh will play Miami tough, but the Hurricanes will pull away late and cover.

LSU at No. 10 Florida (-11.5)

LSU’s season has been a disaster. After the loss to Missouri on Saturday, Ed Orgeron called LSU’s defense “embarrassing.” When you have defensive issues, the Gators are the last team that you want to see.

Even though they’re coming off a loss to Texas A&M, the Gators’ offense has been potent. If Florida can get any defense, it should take care of LSU. The Tigers will keep this one tight but will remain winless in the SEC.

Louisville at No. 4 Notre Dame (-15)

The Irish have yet to play any highly ranked teams, but they’ve been fairly dominant in their victories. The season hasn’t started well for Louisville.

The Cardinals now sit at 1-3 after being beaten by Georgia Tech last Friday. Many thought that Louisville could be a contender in the ACC, but those hopes have quickly been dashed.

Notre Dame’s offense will run wild over the Cardinals. Take the Irish!

No. 1 Clemson (-27) at Georgia Tech

Gone are the days of the triple-option at Georgia Tech. Paul Johnson’s crew used to be able to control the clock and give highly ranked teams fits. That isn’t the case anymore.

Clemson easily disposed of a team that very well could be its toughest challenge of the season last week when it dominated the Miami Hurricanes. Trevor Lawrence, Travis Etienne Sr., and the Clemson offense looked ready to make a run at another national championship. And the defense looked just as good, if not better than the offense.

Geoff Collins has done a good job of rebuilding the Yellow Jackets program. Unfortunately, they’ll have a big setback on Saturday. Clemson wins this one by five touchdowns.
