Given what has already happened in college football this season, we are all looking ahead to Week 7 wondering where the next big upset is going to come from. After all, how many of you had Alabama, Ohio State, and Clemson all having losses and being outside the top 4 at this stage of the season? I’d be surprised if anyone did, yet that is exactly where we are at. The Georgia Bulldogs are the new #1, but they have a tricky game this weekend against unbeaten Kentucky in what could essentially be the game that decides who wins the SEC East. There are a lot of big games on tap besides that one, though, so we are going to jump in and select a few matchups that we like for our ATS picks in Week 7. Let’s get to it so you can keep betting against the NCAAF odds.
Week 7 ATS Picks for the 2021 Season | NCAA Football Betting
Texas A&M Aggies (-9) at Missouri Tigers
How often have we seen a team deliver a staggering upset, only to fall back to earth with a poor display a week later? That is the trap that the Texas A&M Aggies will be looking to avoid after stunning Alabama in Week 6. They certainly have an easier task this weekend with a road trip to Missouri to face the Tigers, but as we said, it’s easy to have a bit of a let down after a huge win. Furthermore, this is a team that the Aggies have struggled against in the past, going just 1-5 SU in their last 6 meetings with the Tigers. This, though, feels a little different, as the Aggies finally looked like the team we thought they were going to be this season with the win over the Crimson Tide. A&M is 6-3 ATS in their last 9 and I think they improve on that here.
Duke Blue Devils at Virginia Cavaliers (-11)
With the Clemson Tigers looking like a bit of a mess this season, the ACC is suddenly up for grabs like never before. The Coastal Division, which is usually a bit of a dog-eat-dog situation, is very much the same this year, with the Virginia Cavaliers still in the hunt despite going just 2-2 in conference games. The good news is that they have now won 2 in a row in ACC play and can go over the .500 mark when they host the Duke Blue Devils this weekend. After a solid start to the season, Duke has seen their offense fall flat and come into this one on a 2-game losing skid. They have lost and failed to cover in each of their last 6 meetings with Virginia, so more of the same here I would think.
Purdue Boilermakers at Iowa Hawkeyes (-11 ½)
If you have been following our college football picks this season, you may have noticed a bit of a trend. The trend is that Iowa has become a favorite pick, so we are going to continue riding them this weekend, as they have proven to be a good pick every single week. This time, we are looking at them against the spread with the Purdue Boilermakers coming to town in Week 7. Purdue are 3-2 this season, but perhaps more concerning is that they have covered just twice in their last 10 games. On the flipside, Iowa is 7-1 ATS in their last 8, and while they have not covered in their last 5 versus Purdie, I think they snap that run this weekend.
