Week 7 is now independent of all of last year's data in my model and markets. This will surely be subject to some volatility and there are opportunities to make some money.
2022 College Football Week 7 Picks
Charlotte 49ers @ UAB Blazers
The 49ers travel to Alabama to take on a really good UAB team. UAB is a wolf in sheep's clothing in my opinion. Their record sits at a "meh" 3-2. They suffered a bad loss to Rice in Houston and a close loss to Liberty, also on the road. At home though is where the Blazers shine.
They've beat MTSU, Alabama A&M, and Georgia Southern 135-35.
Yes, their offense has been impressive, but it is the Blazers defense that really is their strength. They rank 23rd in the FBS and allow only 16.8 ppg. Charlotte's defense is a whole other story.
Charlotte is AVERAGING 538 yards a game and 46 ppg. Charlotte can't stop anyone and haven't kept a team below 40 this year.
The spread is 23.5. At a minimum, UAB is going to get 40 points. Can UAB keep a Chris Reynolds-led offense to less than 20? I think so. My model ahs UAB by more than 30 and I think this is the right side. The run attack for the Blazers is going to steamroll this porous defense and when teams can run at will and move the chains and keep the offense on the field, they're going to systematically and routinely put up points in this contest.
The Play: UAB -23.5
