College football odds, lines, schedule for Week 7: Alabama opens as favorite over Georgia at home

Posted on

It is never too early to take a look at the lines for next week’s action, and the William Hill Sportsbook has released them for Week 7 action already. That includes the huge SEC showdown between SEC teams as No. 2 Alabama hosts No. 3 Georgia in Tuscaloosa next Saturday night on CBS.

While that’s going to be a great game between the only remaining undefeated teams in the SEC, it’s also the only game between ranked teams in Week 7. Though, I suppose if we’re only going to get one matchup between ranked teams, we might as well make it a couple of top-three sides.

There are some other games worth keeping an eye on, though. Particularly as some teams look to bounce back from a rough weekend, while other upstarts look to prove their worth. Let’s take a look at some of the bigger games for the weekend.

No. 3 Georgia at No. 2 Alabama (-6): As I said above, not only is this the only matchup between ranked teams this weekend, it’s also a game between the final unbeaten teams in the SEC. This game’s story will be the Alabama offense against a Georgia defense that’s been phenomenal through three games. Alabama got into an old-fashioned Big 12-style shootout with Ole Miss on Saturday night, but it will find the resistance a bit stronger against this defense. Of course, it’ll also be just as important to see if the Georgia offense can keep pace with Alabama. This is going to be a great game and a possible SEC Championship — and College Football Playoff? — preview.

No. 1 Clemson (-27) at Georgia Tech: Clemson’s playing another ACC game, so of course, it’s favored by nearly four touchdowns. Honestly, it’s pretty crazy to think that the

Week 6 in college football is loaded with ultra-compelling matchups, including a top 10 matchup in the ACC, two massive SEC showdowns and plenty of other games that gamblers could drop a few dollars down on. The battle between No. 1 Clemson and No. 7 Miami (FL) will be the day’s signature game, but don’t sleep on No. 4 Florida’s road trip to College Station to take on No. 21 Texas A&M and No. 3 Georgia’s home game vs. No. 14 Tennessee.

Early lines for the week have been released by William Hill Sportsbook. Let’s take a look at how the boys in the desert see the week playing out.

No. 7 Miami at No. 1 Clemson (-15): The Hurricanes have been one of the biggest surprises of the young season but will face their toughest test to date in Death Valley against the Tigers. Quarterback D’Eriq King and offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee will make a big statement if they’re able to hang with the top-ranked team in the sport.

No. 14 Tennessee at No. 3 Georgia (-14): The win over Auburn must have made a big impression, because the Bulldogs are laying two touchdowns at home against a Volunteers team that is riding high on an eight-game winning streak. Both of these teams boast stout offensive lines, so expect an old-school slugfest. 

No. 4 Florida (-5.5) at No. 21 Texas A&M: The Aggies couldn’t shut down Alabama last week and now have to find a way to stop the “Super Swamp Brothers” Kyle Trask and Kyle Pitts. Meanwhile, the Gators defense needs to find its stride heading into the meat of the season. There’s no time like the present. 

No. 19 Virginia Tech at No. 8 North Carolina (-5.5): Both of these teams have been flying under
