Rutgers at No. 8 Louisville 7:30 PM ET
The high-scoring eighth-ranked Louisville Cardinals (44.4 ppg) have an outstanding quarterback in junior Teddy Bridgewater and they’ll come into this Week 7 matchup with an undefeated record after beating Temple 30-7 in Week 6.
Nevertheless, I think the Cardinals (5-0 SU, 3-2 ATS) will have their hands full with the Rutgers Scarlet Knights when they square off in this expected thriller.
Rutgers (4-1 SU, 2-3 ATS) has won four straight and is coming off an entertaining 55-52 overtime win over SMU this past weekend, though they failed to cover the spread as a 3.5-point road favorite to fall to 1-3 ATS over their last four games.
Again however, the Scarlet Knights look like they very well could cover the spread in this matchup as they average an outstanding 40.0 points per game themselves.
Analysis: I like Rutgers to cover the huge spread in this contest and cash in for betting backers for the second time this season as an underdog.
The Scarlet Knights are 11-4-1 ATS in their L/1 games against a team with a winning record and an even more impressive 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 games against teams with a winning record.
I know the Favorite in this series is 5-1 ATS in the last half-dozen meetings, but I still like the Rutgers Scarlet Knights to cover the spread by keeping the final score a lot closer than expected.
The Pick: Rutgers +16 Points

Missouri at No. 7 Georgia 12:00 PM ET
The seventh-ranked Georgia Bulldogs (4-1 SU, 1-3-1 ATS) will have their hands full when they take on the undefeated
Missouri Tigers (5-0 SU, 5-0 ATS) in a Week 7 SEC matchup that has all the makings of a knock-down, drag-out fight to the finish.
Missouri rolled roughshod over Vanderbilt 51-28 on Saturday to remain unbeaten and easily cover the college football betting line as a 2.5-point road favorite to move to 3-0 ATS over their last three games.
Georgia didn’t look particularly overwhelming in narrowly squeaking past Tennessee 34-31 in Week 7 while failing to cover the spread as a 13.5-point road favorite to fall to 0-2-1 ATS over their last three games.
Analysis: While I genuinely believe the Georgia Bulldogs are the slightly better team in this contest, particularly based on their play against SEC rivals, LSU, Clemson and South Carolina, something tells me that Missouri is going to turn this SEC battle into a flat-out brawl.
The Tigers have compiled an impressive 5-1 ATS mark in their last six road games while also going 4-1 ATS in their last five conference games.
While Georgia has gone 5-1-1 ATS in its L/7 conference games, the Bulldogs have also gone 1-3-1 ATS in their last five games overall.
Missouri has also won four of its last half-dozen road games and I like them to keep the final score close…as in cover close!
The Pick: Missouri +9.5 Points
No. 10 Oklahoma at Texas 12:00 PM ET
The 10th-ranked Oklahoma Sooners will look to remain undefeated when they take on Big Ten rival Texas on Saturday at the Cotton Bowl.
The Longhorns (3-2 SU, 2-3 ATS) recorded a narrow (cheat?) 31-30 win over Iowa State to move to 2-0 SU over their last two games, but they also failed to cover the spread as a 7-point road favorite to fall to 1-3 ATS over their last four games.
Oklahoma (5-0 SU, 3-2 ATS) also didn’t set the place on fire in its narrow 20-17 win over a game TCU team that just wouldn’t go away against the Sooners. Oklahoma failed to cover the NCAAF betting odds as a 10.5-point home favorite to snap a two-game ATS winning streak.
Analysis: First and foremost, Oklahoma has won 10 straight conference games and I expect them to do so again in this matchup. The Sooners have won three straight in this series while covering the spread each time out.
This time around however, I like the Longhorns to get the narrow ATS victory in a closer than expected loss. Texas is just 4-9 SU in its last 13 games against Oklahoma, so I’m not expecting an outright win or anything, especially seeing as how the refs gave them a win over Iowa State last weekend.
I like Oklahoma to get the SU but Texas to cover the spread.
NCAAF Free Pick: Texas +14 Points
