There’s another week of college football betting action ahead, and here at Bankroll Sports, we’re dissecting some of the best NCAA football odds on the board in Week 7.

What we don’t have this week are a whole bunch of extreme lines one way or the other. Sure, teams like the Baylor Bears or the UCLA Bruins or the Texas A&M Aggies have high ‘totals’ in the 70s, and there are a few games like the one between the Miami Redhawks and the Massachusetts Minutemen which only feature a ‘total’ of 43, but the point spreads themselves aren’t as outrageous as you might think and be used to.

There isn’t a single team on the college football Week 7 lines that is favored by more than 28 points, and that’s showing that the games are getting closer and closer together. We do have to note that that 28-point favorite is on the road, and it happens to be the #1 team in the country. The Alabama Crimson Tide are giving 28 to the Kentucky Wildcats, which more or less assumes that the spread would be 35 or so if the game was being played in Tuscaloosa. That being said, Kentucky has got to be used to playing these games against these awesome teams, as in the last few weeks, it has had to contend with South Carolina, Louisville, and Florida, and now comes the biggest test of them all against the Crimson Tide, the two-time defending National Champions.

That said, we can bill this week as “Elimination Saturday,” as there are a lot of teams that are going to be playing for the National Championship lives. We know that most of these teams don’t have even remotely good chances of winning it all, but as we get closer and closer to the first BCS rankings being put out, teams are going to be jockeying for position in hopes of keeping their chances alive.

NCAA Football BetDSIThe first of those elimination games comes on Thursday when the Louisville Cardinals play host to the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. Without a single team ranked in the Top 25 in the land outside of them, the Cardinals know that they are in a lot of trouble when it comes to the BCS. Perfection is the only formula for success, and even that doesn’t guarantee anything with so many undefeated teams in front of them and coming up from behind them as well. This is at least a shot at playing against a decent team on national television, and Louisville is laying 19.

The Oklahoma Sooners are engaged in the Red River Rivalry this week against the Texas Longhorns, and this game is always one that is tough to handicap. The Sooners have beaten Head Coach Mack Brown four times by 30+ points, and there is a real chance that this could be another one of these games that is separated by a huge margin. Oklahoma is giving 13.5 points to the Longhorns, and we have a feeling if this game isn’t at least covered (and perhaps at least won), Brown’s days in burnt orange are numbered. However, if OU loses this game, the Big XII probably wouldn’t have a National Championship contender left, especially if the Baylor Bears happened to lose as 17-point favorites on the road to the Kansas State Wildcats. Remember last year, though? Baylor was a 12-point underdog at home against a Kansas State team that was just a couple wins away from playing for all the marbles. The Bears won that game and won it huge, and you know that Head Coach Bill Snyder would love to exact some revenge against Baylor by taking an eye for an eye this year.

The best teams in the Pac-12 are going to be in for fights this week as well. The Stanford Cardinal and the Oregon Ducks are both on the road, and they both have games that they very well could lose. Stanford is taking on the Utah Utes, who have had a knack of sticking around in these big games this year. The Cardinal are -8.5, but they are by no means a guarantee to get the job done in this game. Oregon meanwhile, is taking on the Washington Huskies is what might be the biggest game of the day. The Huskies beat Stanford last season (and that was the same Stanford team that went on the road and beat Oregon), and the Ducks are trying to avoid the same fate. QB Marcus Mariota and the gang are -13.5 on the road in Seattle, where College Gameday is going to be waiting for them. A loss for Washington would surely end its chances at a National Championship, if those chances aren’t gone already. A loss for either Stanford or Oregon won’t necessarily be completely damning, but it very well could be.

Over in the SEC, there are five teams that are playing for their lives, and we have a feeling that at least two of them are going to end up out of this mix when it’s all said and done with.

We’ll start with the game where we know there are going to be problems for the loser. Both the LSU Tigers and the Florida Gators have already been beaten once, and one is going to take the hook for the second time this year. If that’s the case, there is no way back into the National Championship picture. LSU would be knocked out of the SEC Championship race as well with its second conference loss. The Bayou Bengals are laying a touchdown, but this is a game that historically has been very interesting with a lot of upsets rampant.

The Georgia Bulldogs are taking on the Missouri Tigers down in Athens in a game that the oddsmakers are warning you could be sneaky. Mizzou is one of the two undefeated teams left in the SEC (the other being Alabama), and it isn’t going to go down in this one without a fight. Though Georgia is a Top 10 ranked team, it is only -8 in this game, and that certainly could be an issue.

The South Carolina Gamecocks, who may or may not have DE Jadeveon Clowney in this game, will take on the Arkansas Razorbacks on the road. The Hogs don’t stink by any stretch of the imagination, and the talent is there for this to be one of the Top 25 teams in the land. The Gamecocks are only -6 in this one on the road, the exact same price that another team on upset alert, the Texas A&M Aggies are favored by over the Ole Miss Rebels.

If any of these big name SEC teams lose, it will be crippling to the conference, as that will take away a lot of their power when it comes to the BCS rankings that are coming out this week.

SportsBetting.ag FootballThe Big Ten definitely features a couple games of note as well. The Michigan Wolverines are still undefeated, but they are facing one of their sternest tests on the road against the Penn State Nittany Lions. Head Coach Bill O’Brien and the boys have nothing to play for but games like this one, and you can bet that Beaver Stadium is going to be rocking for the first installment of this game since 2010. Michigan is favored by a deuce, but this is a game that is going to be frightening for the visitors.

Perhaps the most interesting game of the day from a betting standpoint is the one between the Northwestern Wildcats and the Wisconsin Badgers. We see unranked teams favored over ranked teams all the time, but we never see anything quite like this. The Wildcats are +10.5 on the road, and the oddsmakers are simply telling you that this game is anything but an upset. No one is buying into the fact that Northwestern is a Top 25 team, and the oddsmakers are telling you that they think Wisconsin should be. Don’t be sold on the whole idea that this would be an “upset” if the Badgers were to win this game. They’re expected to win it by double digits.

Other games of note from the start of the week… The San Diego State Aztecs are giving 4.5 to the Air Force Falcons on Thursday, while the Arizona Wildcats and the USC Trojans, in a game that very well could eliminate the loser of this one from the Pac-12 South this year, are expected to play a close one as well. USC is favored by 6.5 at home in the first game in the post-Lane Kiffin era. On Friday, the Temple Owls will go in search of their first win of the season, but they are getting 21 against the Cincinnati Bearcats.
