Now that the college football world has recovered from the shock of Texas A&M’s big win over former number one Alabama, it’s time to refocus on what could happen this week.
There was movement at the top NCAA rankings, and a slew of teams remain undefeated heading into Week 7, many of who are starting to face the most challenging part of their seasons. So, what’s college football betting odds saying about the games to watch and bet on this weekend?
What games are a must-see for NCAAF best bets in Week 7? Read on to learn more about the most exciting games in NCAAF college football this week.
Kentucky Wildcats at Georgia Bulldogs (-23)
6-0 Georgia has gone to the top of the NCAA rankings. Next, they welcome the Kentucky Wildcats to Sanford Stadium in what’s sure to be some must-watch football.
There’s no doubt the number 11 Wildcats have been on a powerful roll over the last two weeks with wins over the Florida Gators and LSU Tigers. But Georgia will be Kentucky’s most formidable challenge so far.
While both teams are great, it’ll be challenging for the Wildcats to stop the Bulldogs. Georgia has an explosive offense and one of the best defenses in the country. So it’s hard to imagine Kentucky keeping this game close, much less winning.
Ole Miss Rebels at Tennessee Volunteers (+3)
Number 13 Mississippi heads to Tennessee this Saturday in what’s sure to be a competitive game.
Tennessee might be feeling good about their back-to-back wins against Missouri and South Carolina, but they have no time to rest, as their next three games are against Ole Miss, Alabama, and Georgia.
Ole Miss might be favored, but are they prepared for what it’s like to play at Neyland Stadium?
Coach Kiffin, who spent a year at Tennessee, knows that has to be a part of this week’s prep. I believe that the Rebels will be ready for this game and pull out the victory in Knoxville.
UCF Knights at Cincinnati Bearcats (-20.5)
The 5-0 Cincinnati Bearcats are prepping to host the Knights after walloping Temple in Week 5. The number three ranked Bearcats hope to keep their winning streak alive and retain their spot near the top of the NCAA rankings.
Thanks to their powerhouse offense, led by RB Jerome Ford and QB Desmond Ridder, Cincinnati is on a roll.
Can the Knights handle this offense? While their win in Week 5 wasn’t as impressive as the Bearcats, they, too, have a powerhouse RB in sophomore Johnny Richardson, who had 16 carries for 104 yards and a touchdown against East Carolina last week.
I believe that Cincinnati will cover, but I wouldn’t be surprised if UCF played a great game and kept it close.
Alabama Crimson Tide at Mississippi State Bulldogs (+17.5)
Being an Alabama fan isn’t easy this week after a painful and surprising loss to Texas A&M and dropping from number one. The only thing that might be worse is being Mississippi State when Alabama has something to prove to the college football world.
Bama has dropped to fifth in the rankings and will take on 25th ranked Mississippi State this week.
Even with home-field advantage, Mississippi State faces a Crimson Tide team that’s playing with a chip on their shoulder. Mississippi State has lost to Alabama the last 13 times they’ve played. Unfortunately for them, I don’t believe they stand much of a chance to beat Alabama finally.
