- Don't forget about the betting underdogs on the moneyline when finalizing your Week 7 college football bets.
- Three of our college football experts give their best moneyline underdog bets for Week 7.
Each week, we will each give out our favorite moneyline underdog on the college football card. Week 7 is no different. You can play them straight, throw them in a longshot parlay or just read for additional insight.
After just missing with San Jose State in Week 5, we bounced back nicely with two 3-1 underdog winners (UAB and Iowa State) in Week 6. Let’s try to keep the momentum rolling this Saturday.
If you feel like really rolling the dice, a moneyline parlay of all three pays 29-1.

Talk about motivation. This is Memphis’ Super Bowl. Not only have the Tigers suffered two disappointing losses already this season (Navy, Tulane), which have put a real damper on their AAC title aspirations, but they have major motivation for revenge in this game.
Last year, Memphis lost twice to Central Florida — once at home in embarrassing fashion, 40-13, and the other later in the year in the AAC Championship at UCF in double overtime by a score of 62-55. The Tigers have had this game circled since that title-game loss. Expect their absolute best effort here.
And while UCF should have no issues putting up points against a very suspect Memphis defense, the Tigers should move the ball on the ground all day. The Tigers not only lead the nation in rush yards per attempt (7.7), but also in S&P+ Rush Explosiveness. (They also rank No. 4 in Rush Efficiency on offense, whereas UCF ranks outside the top 50.)
I think Memphis can pull off another top-25 upset at the Liberty Bowl, which it has done in each of the past three seasons:
- 2015 vs. Ole Miss
- 2016 vs. Houston
- 2017 vs. UCLA
And can we please slow our roll with the UCF love? Its one road win this year came at UConn, which could very well be the worst team in the country.
