By Week 7, injuries in college football start to pile up. Coaches are usually unsure of the status of some of their star players some weeks, leaving bettors in a frenzy trying to figure out their betting strategy for that week.

Below, we’ll break down a few games that have seen massive line movement due to injuries or other factors.

Florida Gators vs. LSU Tigers +11.5 (-110)

Opened -1.5 (-110)
Currently +11.5 (-110)

Yup, you read this correctly. LSU opened as a favorite when the markets came out for this game. With LSU at home, taking on Florida, oddsmakers liked LSU’s chance of getting a win. Instead, the Tigers watched many of their top players go down due to injury, leaving bettors and oddsmakers no choice but to steam the Florida lineup to double digits.

LSU is basically playing with a second-team defense and this offense has already lost their key contributor in Keyshon Boutte, who had led the SEC in many receiving categories. Still, these Florida against LSU games are always intriguing, and with LSU getting that many points, despite having a depleted team, it might be worth a look.

UCF Golden Knights vs. Cincinnati Bearcats -21.5 (-110)

Opened -10.5 (-110)
Currently -21.5 (-110)

The Bearcats looked unstoppable. They’re undefeated and working their way into a potential controversy if they don’t lose. If the Bearcats go undefeated this season, would they make the CFP?

UCF was supposed to be a challenge for the Bearcats but now without starting quarterback Dillon Gabriel, nobody is giving the Knights a chance to pull off this upset. The line shifted from 10.5 all the way to 21.5. Even if Cincinnati wins this game by three touchdowns, it wouldn’t be enough to cover the spread.

It’s tempting to take the dog at +21.5 here just like it is tempting to take LSU, at home, against Florida.

Michigan State Spartans vs. Indiana Hoosiers -4.5 (-110)

Opened +16 (-110)
Currently -4.5 (-110)

This is one of the more wild swings in college football. When the line opened up for this game, Michigan State could be bet at +16. Now, the line has shifted to Michigan State being -4.5 favorites.

Michigan State has shocked the world and are playing terrific college football while being undefeated. Meanwhile, Indiana had a great year last year but has taken multiple steps backward despite a solid year during the pandemic year.

Michigan State has it all when it comes to playmaking with speed and ability all around. Meanwhile, the defense has stepped up and looked really good.

When this game opened up, it was when the season just started. It’s crazy to see a three-touchdown swing in any line, no matter when it opened up as. It just goes to show you that there’s value on betting lines early.

If you think you like something and you believe the line will adjust later in the season, don’t be afraid to jump on it. I would love to see someone holding a +16 (-110) wager on Michigan State for this game.
