College football betting action is here again! Here at Cappers Info, we’re making our running tally of NCAA football picks this year, continuing with action on Saturday, October 15th!
Year To Date Record: 39-32 ATS
Upset Record: 6-15, -$410
Week 7 College Football Matchup: Clemson Tigers @ Maryland Terrapins
Date: Saturday, October 15th, 7:00 ET
Location: Byrd Stadium, College Park, MD
College Football Lines: Clemson -8
Week 7 College Football TV Schedule: ESPNU
Clemson is due to get picked off, and this is a game that we think is the end of the road for the Tigers. The Terps are a decent team this year, and they have a chance to pull off the upset in this one and to keep in the ACC Atlantic Division race. The home town crowd should be rocking in this one, knowing how important of a game that it really is. An upset is very possible, but in this one, we’d feel a lot better to just hope that the Terrapins can stick inside the number against the sudden Heisman Trophy candidate, QB Tajh Boyd.
Week 7 NCAA Football Pick: Maryland +8
Week 7 College Football Matchup: Virginia Tech Hokies @ Wake Forest Demon Deacons
Date: Saturday, October 15th, 6:30 ET
Location: BB&T Field, Winston Salem, NC
College Football Lines: Virginia Tech -6.5
Week 7 College Football TV Schedule: ESPN3.com
We’re afraid that we might have missed the boat here on the Demon Deacons at +7.5 earlier in the week, but it gives us the confirmation that we are probably on the right side. Wake Forest is inching towards bowl eligibility this year, which is a great step in the right direction for Head Coach Jim Grobe and the gang after two frustrating years. Remember that BB&T Field was a house of horrors for Florida State last week, and we aren’t all that sure that V-Tech is that much better (if at all) than the Noles are. Take the points for certain, especially knowing that Wake might need to win this game to stick around in the ACC Atlantic Division race.
Week 7 NCAA Football Pick: Wake Forest +6.5
Week 7 College Football Matchup: Arizona State Sun Devils @ Oregon Ducks
Date: Saturday, October 15th, 10:15 ET
Location: Autzen Stadium, Eugene, OR
College Football Lines: Oregon -14.5
Week 7 College Football TV Schedule: ESPN
Let’s be realistic about the Ducks for a second. They’re really, really good. In fact, we’re still convinced, in spite of the fact that Stanford is the team that is ranked the highest in this conference, that the Quack Attack is better than anyone in this conference and are still capable of winning the National Championship. We still think that Arizona State is made of fool’s gold. QB Brock Osweiler is alright, but he’s not nearly one of the best three or four quarterbacks in this conference. Head Coach Dennis Erickson has a team that is a sham, and even without RB LaMichael James on the field, we have no doubts that the Ducks are getting to 40 in this one… and Arizona State won’t get to 28.
Week 7 NCAA Football Pick: Oregon -14.5
Week 7 College Football Matchup: Alabama Crimson Tide @ Ole Miss Rebels
Date: Saturday, October 15th, 6:00 ET
Location: Vaught Hemingway Stadium, Oxford, MS
College Football Lines: Alabama -27.5
Week 7 College Football TV Schedule: ESPN2
We must stress the fact that we don’t like laying points on the road in any game in the SEC. We really, really don’t like laying four touchdowns on the road. That being said, Alabama is just head and shoulders beyond Ole Miss, which is probably the worst team that this conference has to offer. The Tide have one of the best defenses in the nation, allowing just 7.0 points per game. Ole Miss isn’t good enough offensively without QB Jeremiah Masoli (or any other notable quarterback for that matter) to be able to score on this unit. Assuming that Alabama gets to 28, there’s no reason that it shouldn’t be able to cover those four touchdowns. We’ll back the ‘under’ just in case as well.
Week 7 NCAA Football Pick: Alabama -27.5 & Alabama/Ole Miss Under 44.5
Week 7 College Football Matchup: South Florida Bulls @ Connecticut Huskies
Date: Saturday, October 15th, 3:30 ET
Location: Rentschler Field, Storrs, CT
College Football Lines: South Florida -7
Week 7 College Football TV Schedule: ESPN Game Plan
So far this year, Connecticut has been beaten by Vandy, Iowa State, and Western Michigan, teams that almost certainly aren’t going anywhere above perhaps mid-grade bowl games this year. South Florida probably isn’t a BCS team this season, but Head Coach Skip Holtz definitely has the team putting up some solid results. Don’t worry about that 44-17 loss against Pitt. That was two and a half weeks ago, and you know that Holtz has been lacing into his defense for as bad as this unit played against RB Ray Graham and the running attack. USF played four straight great games before that loss on national television, and we expect to see some better results this week.
Week 7 NCAA Football Pick: South Florida -7
