It was another wild weekend in college football, with some of the top teams losing, while others had to battle to maintain their unbeaten start to the season. In the SEC, the Florida Gators took their first loss, going down to Texas A&M, a defeat that will drop them out of the top 4. We almost saw a major upset, with Ole Miss giving Alabama everything they had in an absolute thriller of game that went back and forth for the full 60 minutes. Bama survived, but they will have another tough one this weekend when they go head to head with Georgia. Meanwhile, it is Clemson who looks like the cream of the crop at the moment, as they crushed Miami and maintained their #1 ranking. Let’s look ahead to Week 7 and some of the ATS picks that we like, so you can place your bets against their NCAAF odds.
NCAAF ATS Picks for Week 7 | College Football Betting
Clemson Tigers (-27) at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
The Clemson Tigers have started this season looking very much like a team that has a chip on their shoulder after losing in the National Championship Game last season. Last weekend versus Miami was their biggest test of the season thus far against the Miami Hurricanes, but they made it look very easy, winning that one 42-17. The Tigers have now covered in 6 straight games versus teams from the ACC, and while this spread is up there, it is worth noting that Clemson is 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings with the Yellow Jackets. Georgia Tech have not been a great pick against the spread and are now just 3-11-1 ATS in their last 15 games overall.
Navy Midshipmen (-2 ½) at East Carolina Pirates
The Midshipmen got back to .500 on the season with a big win over Tulane in Week 6, pulling out a dramatic 31-29 win in that one. It was also a good weekend for East Carolina, as they ran out 44-24 winners over USF to get their first win of the season. The Pirates and the Midshipmen will go head to head this weekend in a game that the bookies see as being tight, with Navy in as a modest 2 ½ point favorite. Navy failed to cover the spread last weekend, but that might prove to be a good thing for bettors, as they are 5-0 ATS in the game following a failure to cover. They are also 6-0 ATS in their last 6 versus teams with a losing record.
UCF Knights (-3 ½) at Memphis Tigers
What we have here is essentially what boils down to a hunch play. This UCF team is not the one that we have seen over the past few seasons, when they were actively campaigning to be part of the college football playoffs. Furthermore, you look at their trends against the spread and you don’t find a lot to like, yet I still see them as being more than capable of winning and covering against a Memphis Tigers team that has now failed to cover in each of their last 5 games. They are also 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games as an underdog.
