Taking Bets: Week 7 – Clash of the Unbeatens

It's our weekly predictions of college and N.F.L. football against the spread!

TD is heating up (Takin’ On Sports plug goes here) and steadily improving his record, but Blaine is still bleeding money. Check in with The Alabama Take every Friday afternoon to see what our bettors think are the sure wins football. Then go the opposite direction with your personal bets!

2022 ATS Record
Blaine Duncan: 9-14 (Week Six: 1-3)
TD Wood: 13-10 (Week Six: 3-1)

Blaine Duncan 
Blaine was off in the magical land of Disney this week, but that didn’t stop him from sending in his picks (Gambling is the hobby of degenerates, after all). If he bombs this week, that’s one more thing we can blame on the Empire of the Mouse. — TD

Arkansas (EVEN) at BYU — I’ve still got a little faith in the Razorbacks this season. That’s a long trip to play a bunch of crazed Mormons, but all they have to do is win.

UNC (-7) at Duke — Since losing to Notre Dame, the Tar Heels have fallen off people’s radar, but they’re 5-1. A touchdown win just down the road seems feasible.

Washington State at Oregon State (-3.5) — They didn’t hit last week, but I’ll ride with Oregon State again against Washington State. If this was in Pullman, I don’t know that I’d take it.

NFL Game of the Week: Vikings (-3) at Dolphins — Aren’t the Vikings too loaded not to win this one with Tua ruled out again? I’m betting on it.

TD Wood
Go figure, winless Colorado State goes and wins and screws up my perfect week. Oh, well, ain’t gonna complain about a 3-1 week.

Old Dominion at Coastal Carolina (-11.5) — Coastal’s offense is very good, and ODU’s defense is very… not good. Expect the Chanticleers the sling it all over the place and run away with this one.

Arkansas (Pick ’em) at BYU — The Hogs should get KJ Jefferson back this week, and I think that makes a world of difference for them. They do need to fix a lot of issues on defense, however, but I still like their chances to outscore the Cougars.

Tulane (-12) at South Florida — The Green Wave are humming along this season, their only blemish a 3-point loss to Southern Miss. The Bulls somehow played Florida and Cincinnati close, but otherwise they’ve been atrocious. Their defense is porous, and I think Tulane will take full advantage. 

NFL Game of the Week: Jaguars (+2) at Colts — I still don’t understand how the Colts beat the Chiefs. I do understand they’re awful. This is already their second meeting, and the Jags took the first 24-0; I think it’s about the same this time around.

Note: All games are Against the Spread. Odds are taken from the Caesar’s Sportsbook.
