Week 7 NCAA Football Preview at Bovada Sportsbook

October 14th, 2010

It’s hard to talk about Week 7 NCAA football without talking about the brand new No. 1 team in the nation, Ohio State. For weeks the Buckeyes plugged away doing everything that was expected of them while the Alabama Crimson Tide sat in the primary position of the AP polls, now after six weeks at No. 2, Ohio State will experience what it’s like to be the best for the first time in 2010.

#1 Ohio State @ #18 Wisconsin
In Week 7 the Buckeyes will take on the No. 18-ranked Wisconsin Badgers, an immediate test of their might. The Buckeyes have only played one Top 25 club so far this season, the University of Miami in Week 2. Will Ohio State prove that they are deserving of such lofty accolades and keep their undefeated record alive? It will be a competitive game, perhaps one of the most exciting Buckeyes match up to date, but Ohio State is favored by 4 points.

Mississippi @ #8 Alabama – Ole Miss in a mis-match?
Prior to their Week 6 loss to South Carolina, all was well in Alabama. The national powerhouse had defeated three Top 25 teams, including two Top 10s in a row, but it doesn’t take much to lose command of a competitive crop of college football teams this season and the Tide tumbled to No. 8. This week they’ll have a chance to redeem themselves against unranked Mississippi. The Tide are obvious favorites with odds now at -21.

Illinois @ #7 Michigan State
Week 7 is a good time to be a Michigan State Spartans fan as the club has soared up the charts, now at a season high ranking of 13. This week the Spartans will host Illinois with the odds now showing Michigan State at -7. After starting the season unranked, Michigan State has continued to impress and their weekly rankings have reflected that.

Are the Ohio State Buckeyes a shaky team to have ranked No. 1 in the nation? Doesn’t it just feel wrong to have Alabama bumped from the spot given their indisputably challenging early season schedule? That’s where you come in.
