Bet College Football Week 7
Texas -3 vs. Oklahoma, Noon ET
The Longhorns have had the Sooners number as of late, winning three of the last four meetings. Sam Bradford is still recovering from his shoulder injury that he suffered in the season opener, and the Sooners have too much youth at key positions to keep up with the Longhorns, who should be able to move the ball effectively against the Oklahoma defense. Texas has more to lose in this game as well, and are a strong option for Saturday with only giving away three points.

Minnesota +17.5 at Penn State, 3:30PM ET
Penn State is just 2-4 against the spread this season and not live up to the preseason hype it received. The Gophers had gotten better as the season has moved on and gotten off to a surprising 4-2 start with losses to Wisconsin by three points and California by 14. The Gophers have failed to score less than 20 points in any game this year, while Penn State is averaging just 31 points per-game. The Gophers look to be a strong play on Saturday with such a large spread.

Virginia Tech -3 at Georgia Tech, 6PM ET
Georgia Tech relies on its rushing attack to win games, but on Saturday is facing a very physical defense in the Hokies. Virginia Tech has only allowed 17 points per-game in a very difficult schedule thus far in 2009, while the Yellowjackets are allowing 26.5 points per-game against lesser talent. Expect the Hokies to control the game and not allow the Yellowjackets to run wild, forcing Josh Nesbitt to have to beat them through the air, which he will be unable to do.

Houston -17 at Tulane, 3:30PM ET
Houston has the most prolific offense in the nation right now, as the Cougars lead the country in yards per-game with just under 570 while averaging 40 points. Case Keenum would be a Heisman candidate if the Cougars were still unbeaten and he should be able to thrown on a Tulane defense that is allowing 34 points per-game. The Green Wave are struggling on offense, posting just a 17-point average. The averages alone are enough for Houston to cover, but the Cougars are likely to win by much more that 17.
