Week 7 college football best bets: More trouble for Miami?

Every Thursday during the season, Doug Kezirian (5-0 last week, 10-3 overall), Bill Connelly (1-2, 9-7), Preston Johnson (3-1, 10-8) and David M. Hale (1-1, 8-6) will provide their top plays across the college football landscape.

Here are their best bets for Week 7 of the college football season. (Games postponed due to COVID-19 have been removed.)

Note: Lines from Caesars Sportsbook by William Hill as of Wednesday (unless otherwise indicated).

No. 14 BYU Cougars (-5.5, 62.5) at Houston Cougars, Friday, 9:30 p.m. ET (on ESPN)

Kezirian: This should be a thrilling game. Both offenses have the ability to light up the scoreboard, but BYU’s physicality could pose problems for Houston. I trust the Cougars will be able to score at ease because pretty much anyone can score against Dana Holgorsen’s defense. Plus, with the platform of national television on a Friday night, I think the BYU coaching staff will do everything it can to pad the stats of QB Zach Wilson. He’s already a pro prospect, but perhaps continuing his current pace of stats and an undefeated season might get him an invitation to New York as a Heisman finalist. That’s a huge recruiting tool for a program like BYU, so I expect the Cougars to capitalize on the opportunity.

Pick: BYU team total over 33.5 (DraftKings)

No. 1 Clemson Tigers (-27, 64) at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, noon ET (on ABC)

Kezirian: One could argue this is a flat spot for Clemson, which is why I am isolating the team total rather than laying 27 points.
