It’s the final year of the Pac-12 as we know it, but the conference continues to produce eye-popping matchups. The Week 7 college football schedule is highlighted by No. 7 Washington taking on No. 8 Washington. The Huskies are 3-point favorites in the latest Week 7 college football odds via SportsLine consensus. No. 15 Oregon State is a 4-point favorite against No. 18 UCLA and No. 10 USC is a 2.5-point road underdog as the Trojans step out of conference play to take on No. 21 Notre Dame.

Meanwhile, SEC East contenders will be in the spotlight during a SEC on CBS doubleheader with top-ranked Georgia laying 31.5 points against Vanderbilt at noon ET, followed by No. 19 Tennessee (-3.5) taking on Texas A&M. Before locking in any college football picks for Week 7 of the 2023 season, be sure to see the college football betting guide from legendary Vegas handicapper Bruce Marshall.

Now, using his Tech Corner technique, Marshall has turned his attention to the latest college football odds for Week 7 and evaluated each matchup. Head here to see every pick.

Top college football predictions for Week 7

One of the top college football picks Marshall is recommending for Week 7: No. 19 Tennessee (-3.5) covers at home against Texas A&M in the 3:30 p.m. ET SEC on CBS matchup. 

The Vols saw their stock fall a few weeks back with an ugly loss at Florida. They’ve bounced back, however, with two wins and covers — including a strong 41-20 victory over South Carolina last week. Tennessee covered as a 12-point favorite in that victory over the Gamecocks. 

Tennessee hasn’t lost at Neyland Stadium since November of 2021, while A&M has won just one true road game since the beginning of the 2022 season. 

“Jimbo Fisher is 1-6 vs. the spread in his last seven as a visitor,” Marshall told SportsLine. “The Vols have covered in their last five at Neyland Stadium vs. FBS-level foes.” See which other picks to make here.
