Top Week 7 college football predictions
One of the top college football picks the model is recommending for Week 7: No. 13 Ole Miss covers (-2.5) at Tennessee in a 7:30 p.m. ET matchup on Saturday. Two of the fastest-moving offenses in the country will square off when the Vols host the Rebels. Tennessee is coming off consecutive blowout wins over Missouri and South Carolina, while Ole Miss bounced back from a loss to Alabama with a win over Arkansas. The Razorbacks came up short on a 2-point conversion to close the game, which ended in a 52-51 final.
Ole Miss has been playing an up-tempo style of football for a couple years under Lane Kiffin, while Tennessee is in its first year under Josh Heupel. The Rebels will be happy to get in a track meet with the Vols, who could have trouble keeping up. SportsLine’s model has Ole Miss covering the spread in over 60 percent of simulations, while the under (82) is cashing almost 60 percent of the time.
Another one of the college football predictions from the model: Second-ranked Iowa covers as an 11.5-point favorite against Purdue on Saturday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. ET. The Hawkeyes will be looking to avoid a letdown performance following their massive win over No. 4 Penn State last week. They have jumped to second in the AP poll for the first time since 1985. Purdue, which is coming off a bye, is one of two teams within striking distance of Iowa in the Big Ten West.
The Hawkeyes feature one of the nation’s top defenses — it showed in the come-from-behind win over Penn State. SportsLine’s model expects them to record a pair of interceptions against Purdue quarterback Jack Plummer. The Hawkeyes are covering the spread in well over 60 percent of simulations.
How to make Week 7 college football picks
The model has also made the call on who wins and covers in every other game on the Week 7 college football schedule, and it’s calling for a top-10 team to get a huge scare. You can only get every pick for every game at SportsLine.
