Read our College Football Week 7 Betting Odds Report for a breakdown of this week's games!

Oklahoma Sooners vs. Texas Longhorns

Texas has picked up two straight wins heading into the “Red River Rivalry,” with Mack Brown’s squad taking the Cotton Bowl’s grass as a 13.5-point underdog in the college football betting odds. The Longhorns have been outscored by a combined margin of 118-38 in their last two battles with Oklahoma, adding even more pressure.

Oklahoma squeaked by TCU in last week’s 20-17 victory, failing to collect as 10-point home ‘chalk.’ The Sooners are 3-7 ATS in their most recent 10 spots that followed a win, with an overvalued 1-5 spread mark in its last six Big 12 Conference affairs.


NCAA FB Pick: Bet the Texas Longhorns +13.5 points, at Bet365


South Carolina Gamecocks at Arkansas Razorbacks

South Carolina has notched three straight victories, but visits the Razorbacks on a 0-4 ATS slide at college football betting windows. The Gamecocks have allowed 33 PPG in their two road spots, leading to a 1-4 spread record in their last five games on opposing fields.

Arkansas has held its own at Razorback Stadium, piling in 30.3 PPG en route to cashing at a 2-1 ATS clip. Look for Bret Bielema’s squad to bark again here, adding another cashed ticket to its 11-3 spread mark in its last 14 home contests against foes with winning road records.


NCAA FB Pick: Take the Arkansas Razorbacks plus the points; +6 available at Ladbrokes


Baylor Bears at Kansas State Wildcats

Baylor has piled on some style points to open its season, but makes its first road journey of the year to Manhattan. The Bears are 1-3 ATS in their last four meetings with Kansas State, while the Wildcats look for revenge after last year’s 52-24 spanking in Waco.

K-State has allowed a sparse 19.3 PPG in its first trio of home affairs, while its three losses this year have all been by 10 points or less. Bill Snyder has gunned for his share of ‘back door’ covers over the years, while his troops are 5-0 ATS in their last five matchups that followed defeats


NCAA FB Pick: Bet on the Kansas State Wildcats, +17.5 on the spread at Bet365


Michigan Wolverines at Penn State Nittany Lions

Michigan came away with a 42-13 triumph over the Minnesota Golden Gophers in last Saturday’s action, collecting as an 18.5-point home sports betting favorite. The Wolverines have not kept their cashing surge in tact, logging a 2-6 ATS in their last eight contests that followed a victory of 20 points.

Penn State has outscored visiting foes by a combined 110-41 margin in its three home matchups, coming away with a 2-1 ATS mark. Bill O’Brien’s squad has cashed tickets in both of its last two meetings with Michigan in “Happy Valley,” while going an undervalued 5-2-1 ATS in its last eight duels against rivals with winning records.


NCAA FB Pick: Pick Penn State on the point spread; the Nittany Lions are +2.5 points at Ladbrokes
