College football’s Week 7 slate is a real doozy — in a lot of ways. Oklahoma vs. Texas, LSU vs. Florida. We’re betting those for sure.

But we’re also diving deep to find profitable betting angles for Western Kentucky-Army and Charlotte FIU. As always, do whatever it takes to follow the money.

That’s what our staff is doing for Saturday’s slate. Here are their six favorite plays.

As an Illinois alum, I have a pretty good pulse on this program and that tends to help me when wagering on the Illini.

My biggest weak spot with Illinois is my tendency to let my emotions get in the way.

Most people have to fight the urge to bet on their alma mater because they’re emotionally invested in them winning.

But my natural inclination is almost always to fade Illinois.
