NCAA Football Week 7: Top 5 Games to bet, TAM/Tenn, Oregon/Wash, USC/ND, UCLA/Oregon State, Mia/UNC

Publish Date: 10/10/2023
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

Best games to bet

5) No. 8 Oregon at No. 7 Washington (-3) (3:30 p.m., ABC)

This game could come down to a field goal either way, with Pennix and Nix both capable quarterbacks combined for 31 touchdowns and three interceptions this year. How will Washington stop an Oregon passing attack with Rome Odunze, Ja’lynn Polk and Jalen McMillan all averaging 15 yards per catch or stop Oregon’s running game with Bucky Irving, Jordan James and Noah Whittington each averaging more than seven yards per carry? It is hard to tell; it could easily come down to a coin flip either way! In the end, I am taking the home team.

Pick: Washington 37ย  Oregon 31

4) No. 10 USC at No. 21 Notre Dame (-2.5)ย  (7:30 p.m., NBC/Peacock)

Irish Coach Marcus Freeman will look to score a signature victory against USC and get their season back on track. Caleb Williams had 257 total yards and four total touchdowns during last year’s 38-27 victory, which resulted in them being +2 in turnover margin. It will likely be an instant classic game, yet somehow USC should prevail.

Pick USC 37ย  Notre Dame 34

3) Texas A&M at No. 19 Tennessee (-3.5) (3:30 p.m., CBS)

Texas A&M won 34-13 at Neyland Stadium during their previous visit in 2020, and this matchup hinges on whether Tennessee – which leads the SEC in rushing offense at 231.2 yards per game – can maintain its dominance against a top statistical defense unit, Texas A&M’s No. 1. Tennessee had an extra week off to add new wrinkles while Texas A&M is coming off an emotional defeat at Alabama. Tennessee is 9-0 S/U and 7-2 ATS since 2022 under Josh Heupel’s watch.

Pick: Tennessee 27ย  Texas A&M 20

2) No. 18 UCLA at No. 15 Oregon State (-4.5)ย  (8 p.m., Fox)

UCLA defeated Washington State last week and looks poised to continue its momentum against Oregon State on the road this week. They’re 3-3 against the spread (ATS) as road underdogs over the past two seasons; D.J. Uiagalelei (155.7 efficiency rating versus 143.7 from Dante Moore (143.7) has slightly superior accuracy due to experience; being in front of his home crowd should help further. Oregon State still hopes for the Pac-12 championship championship race by keeping this game within reach.

Pick: Oregon State 31ย  UCLA 27

1) No. 25 Miami at No. 12 North Carolina (-3.5) (7:30 p.m., ABC)ย 

How will Miami bounce back after their late-game collapse against Georgia Tech? North Carolina has won four straight meetings between these teams; three points have decided all but one. Miami also boasts the top rush defense in the ACC (58.2), while Drake Maye presents unique challenges – he just played his best game this season! Meanwhile, Carolina is undefeated this season against single-digit favorites; their records when underdogs have included three victories against them when favored.

Pick: North Carolina 34ย  Miami 23
