CFB Prop Bets Week 7

Last Updated: Oct 13, 2023

After a dismal week of prop betting in Week 5, we bounced back with a 3-1 week in Week 6 of the college football season.

The lone miss was Henry Parrish Jr. getting Over 71.5 rushing yards against Georgia Tech as it was Donald Chaney Jr. who led the way with 106 rushing yards for Miami.

It looks like another action-packed slate of games across college football this week, so we’ll look to stay on track over the weekend.

Here are our best game props and player props in Week 7.

Skyler Carlin CFB betting record: 12-11-0 (-0.47 units)

CFB Week 7 Best Props

USC: Over 28.5 Points (-120)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

We have No. 10 USC traveling to face No. 21 Notre Dame in Week 7. Even after coming off a loss to Louisville in Week 6, Notre Dame enters as around field-goal favorites over USC at home.

The Trojans lead college football with 51.8 points per game. While none of those games have come against defenses as stout as Notre Dame, USC hasn’t scored fewer than 42 points in a game this season.

Also, it should be noted that the Fighting Irish surrendered 33 points to Louisville last week. It’s safe to say Caleb Williams and USC have a much better offense than Louisville.

This game could undoubtedly be a close contest between two programs who know each other pretty well. At the same time, this feels like an overreaction by the market for an elite offense who is playing on the road, making this one of our best CFB prop bets in Week 7.

North Carolina: Over 3.5 Touchdowns (-140)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

Following a devastating loss to Georgia Tech in Week 6, No. 25 Miami will square off against No. 12 North Carolina in an ACC bout on Saturday.

The Hurricanes have held opponents to only 14.6 points per game (12th-fewest in the nation) this season. On the other side, the Tar Heels are registering a healthy 36.6 points per game on offense (tied for 18th-most in the nation).

When it comes to finding the end zone, Drake Maye and North Carolina’s offense has scored at least four touchdowns in each game this season.

With Miami having to play on the road after losing to Georgia Tech in heartbreaking fashion, North Carolina’s red-hot offense should have no issues putting points up on its conference opponent.

CFB Week 7 Player Props

Brock Bowers: Over 75.5 Receiving Yards (-115)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

A top-ranked Georgia team has finally figured out that getting the ball to stud tight end Brock Bowers is a fantastic idea.

After totaling only 13 receptions, 135 receiving yards, and zero touchdowns in the first three weeks of the season, Bowers has had at least seven catches, 121 receiving yards, and one touchdown in each of his last three outings.

What makes this matchup a stellar one is the fact that Vanderbilt’s defense is giving up 263.7 passing yards per game. And at least one pass catcher has logged 82-plus receiving yards against Vanderbilt in each of its first seven games.

Bowers is the focal point of Georgia’s aerial attack, and 76-plus receiving yards should be no issue in a game where the Bulldogs are projected to score around 45 points.

Graham Mertz.: Over 216.5 Passing Yards (-115)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

Wisconsin transfer quarterback Graham Mertz got off to a slow start in his first year at Florida, but he’s been much better in recent weeks.

In each of his last three games, Mertz has thrown for at least 244 passing yards and he’s completing 80 percent of his passes this season.

South Carolina is one of the worst defenses at stopping the pass, allowing the fifth-most passing yards per game in college football (301.4).

The Gators are slight underdogs on the road against the Gamecocks, so Mertz should air the ball often to keep pace with their SEC foes.

In South Carolina’s first five games of the season, only one team hasn’t had a quarterback throw for at least 239 yards. The lone team to fall short of throwing for more than 239 yards against South Carolina was Furman back in Week 2.
