- Collin Wilson projects college football odds for every Week 7 game using his weekly power ratings.
- These projections help him find betting value before lines adjust throughout the week.
The Action Network college football power ratings have been adjusted for Week 7 openers. Some of the biggest moves include the rise of Ball State and the fall of Kansas State — how’s that for October college football drama.
There are plenty of other movers, too. After starting the season with five straight-up victories and against the spread covers, Auburn took a loss in the Swamp. Both the Gators and Tigers stuffed the box score with turnovers, as Florida had a couple of explosive plays to make the difference. Auburn will more than likely have to run the table to win the SEC, while Florida will have its SEC future defined against Georgia on Nov. 2.
Week 6 lacked major upsets in the Power Five class, while the Group of Five had a few shakeups. Western Kentucky is now 3-0 in Conference USA play with Army on deck, while SMU kept its bid alive to play in a New Year’s Six bowl.
Every Sunday morning, we’ll project point spreads for the following week’s college football games so you can find early betting value.
Look here in preparation for opening lines and follow me in The Action Network App when I bet those lines on Sunday afternoon.
