College Football 2022 Week 7 Picks And Top 25 Matchups
The 2022 Week 7 picks and college football Top 25 report includes a season-high six Top 25 match-ups on Saturday, Oct. 15. I provide a preview and picks of those games below, and initially posted Week 7 picks at Offshore Gaming Association. I bet other games as well, and try to monitor and stay ahead of some of the market moves.
I waited on taking Tennessee and have since bet at Volunteers +9 after posting the current line Friday afternoon at Tennessee +7.5. We’ll see how it works out, but after cashing in on Tennessee in Week 6 with the Volunteers easy victory at LSU, 40-13, we’re shooting for more on Tennessee against Alabama as the Vols try to tackle and roll the ‘Tide.

Types of bets and how to read the odds
No. 3 Alabama at No. 6 Tennessee | 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS
Line: Alabama -7.5 up to -8.5 and Total 66
I’m not passing up taking the No. 1 offense in the country averaging 548 yards per game with the balance and efficiency of Tennessee getting us the cash at Rocky Top. See last week’s game analysis for more insight as we tackle the top-rated ‘Tide this week with Heisman Trophy-winning QB Bryce Young (shoulder) a game-time decision.
No. 8 Oklahoma State at No. 12 TCU | 3:30 p.m. ET on ABC
Line: TCU -4 and Total 68.5
Texas Christian (TCU) improved to 5-0 SU, 4-0-1 ATS with last week’s win at Kansas. The Horned Frogs have exceeded expectations including the oddsmakers by +56 combined points. Evaluating strength of schedule along with what the preseason or early season betting line would have been is another part of the handicapping process. This line has adjusted a full TD+ based on TCU’s rise and results. Yet, Oklahoma State has matched TCU with 232 points scored in five games, and the Cowboys continue to shine in their own undefeated season with their top head coach Mike Gundy leading the way. Oklahoma State QB Spencer Sanders guides the Cowboys pass offense with a 12:2 TD-INT ratio and 296 passing yards per game against four FBS opponents. How ’bout this ATS stat for coach and the Cowboys: Oklahoma State is on a 10-1 ATS regular season run against Big 12 opponents, including 5-0 ATS away from home. We cashed with the Cowboys in their Week 5 win at Baylor, and plan to do so outright again at TCU in a high-scoring shootout.
Pick: Oklahoma State
