Week 7 College Football and Week 6 NFL Opening Point Spreads – Georgia 7-point favorites at LSU

Written By Billy Attridge

Week 7 College Football features four awesome games Saturday involving 4 of the 5 power conferences.  Can Iowa State limit a potent West Virginia offense?  With the line under a touchdown, bookmakers feel this should be relatively close.  Central Florida opened 2-point road favorites, and quickly ballooned out to -5 for their rematch with Memphis from last years AAC title game.  Below are several big games this upcoming week, with the opening point spreads in bold, and the current number to the right of it.

Notable College Football Opening Point Spreads from BetOnline.ag:

Washington @ Oregon (+5.5, +3.5-115)

Wisconsin @ Michigan (-7, -7-105)

West Virginia @ Iowa State (+4.5, +5.5)

UCF @ Memphis (+2, +5+105)

Georgia @ LSU (+6.5, +7)

Michigan State @ Penn State (-13.5-115, -13.5)

*The Washington Huskies are off a close road win at UCLA, and now travel to Oregon to take on Ducks, who are off a bye with the extra time to prep.  Oregon is 4-1, largely untested, with their only blemish coming against Stanford, where they were a few knees away from a victory.  We saw this number open 5.5 at BetOnline.ag, and has settled across the market at 3.5.

*Georgia opened a 6.5-point road favorite in Baton Rouge against the Tigers.  LSU fell for the first time this year at Florida last week, while Georgia continued their dominance against Vanderbilt.  Georgia has yet to score less than 35 points in a game, and this should be a great “strength on strength” matchup.  LSU has three straight home games coming up, with Mississippi State and Alabama on deck.  

*Northwestern shocked Michigan State last week, while Penn State had an extra week to think about the tough loss they suffered at the hands of Ohio State.  We saw this line open up -13.5, shoot out to 15, before we saw it come back down to the opener.  Michigan State finishes off a tough 3-week stretch next week versus rival Michigan.  The Spartans won this match-up last year in East Lansing, 27-24.

*In a very competitive AFC North, the Steelers look for their first division win in Cincinnati against the 4-1 (!) Bengals, who came back from a 17-0 deficit against the Dolphins this past week.  This is as heated of a rivalry as there is in the NFL, with Pittsburgh winning both matchups last year.  This line opened Bengals -3 (+100).

*Kansas City comes into New England with an unblemished record at 5-0, while the Patriots seem to be hitting their stride after back to back 35+ point outings.  Will the Pats have revenge on their minds from an opening week loss last year, when the Chiefs came into Foxboro and shocked them?  Last week, this line was Patriots -3 (-120), and with the opening of -3.5, it will be fascinating to see who the public gravitates towards on Sunday Night.
