College teams are starting to enter their conference schedules this week. That means tighter games, lower spreads and more exciting football. The slate in Week 7 could have huge ramifications for a number of conference races. Which teams are the right choice to pick, either on the moneyline or against the spread? Look below to find out.
Duke Blue Devils (+105) vs Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
The Duke Blue Devils got off to a really nice start this season but were humbled last time out by Virginia Tech. Duke has still put together a solid season and has a chance to push for a new spot in the national rankings with a victory over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. The Blue Devils are two-point road underdogs but they are the pick to grab a close win. Duke is a good choice as the +105 underdog on the moneyline.
USC Trojans vs Colorado Buffaloes (+7)
The USC Trojans and Colorado Buffaloes are two of the better teams in the Pac-12 South. They are facing off in a crucial head-to-head matchup this week. USC is the home team and should be able to pick up the win, but a seven-point spread is too high. Colorado is the choice to cover the spread.
Washington Huskies vs Oregon Ducks (+135)
The Washington Huskies are aiming to get back in the College Football Playoff conversation and likely need to run the table to do so. They have a tough game next time out against the Oregon Ducks. Washington is a three-point favorite but Oregon is a good team in its own right and is playing at home. Take the Ducks to spring the upset as the +135 underdogs on the moneyline.
Wisconsin Badgers (+7.5) vs Michigan Wolverines
The Wisconsin Badgers are a 7.5-point road underdog against the Michigan Wolverines. This is an intriguing spread because Wisconsin can lose by a touchdown and still cover. Michigan has played well this season but does not have the type of firepower to pull away. This one should be close from start to finish and the Badgers are the correct pick against the spread.
Texas Longhorn vs Baylor Bears (+14)
The Texas Longhorns are coming off an impressive win over the Oklahoma Sooners last time out. Their offense was unstoppable but it might take a step back in this next matchup against the Baylor Bears. Texas will win by double digits but a lower-than-expected score will allow for Baylor to cover.
Alabama Crimson Tide (-28.5) vs Missouri Tigers
The Alabama Crimson Tide looks head and shoulder above the rest of the field in college football They are taking on a solid Missouri Tigers team in Week 7 but the Crimson Tide is still a heavy 28.5-point favorite. Alabama has been burned by some backdoor covers in recent weeks but look for the Crimson Tide to jump out to a big lead and cover the spread in this matchup.
Georgia Bulldogs vs LSU Tigers (+7)
The Georgia Bulldogs are preparing for a critical clash against the LSU Tigers, and the result could have a large effect on the College Football Playoff picture. Georgia is the seven-point road favorite. The Bulldogs are the pick to win on the moneyline but LSU is the choice to cover.
UCLA Bruins vs California Golden Bears (-7)
While those plays are good ones and should result in an addition to the bankroll, there is one wager this week that stands out above the rest. The UCLA Bruins are hitting the road to face off against the California Golden Bears. UCLA has looked better lately and had a nice showing last time out against Washington, but playing on the road is not easy.
Cal is a seven-point favorite but this spread should be larger. Take the Bears to win this one by double digits and easily cover the spread against UCLA.
