Every underdog has its day, and Week 7 saw plenty of them seize this opportunity. Seven ranked teams lost, which sent shockwaves throughout the latest AP Top 25 poll at the halfway point.
One underdog that didn’t fare so well, however, was the team that was playing Oregon. That team was Washington, although this wasn’t just a Week 7 theme. The Ducks have yet to lose a game against the spread, and oddsmakers will continue to implement the ol’ “how many points is it gonna take?” system.
Perhaps we’ll see. Or, maybe not.
As for the picks involving Top 25 teams against the spread, it was a solid and stable week over .500. Nobody got rich, but there are worse places to be.
Week 8 features a handful of key games, including a key Pac-12 matchup out west and the latest "Game of the Year/of the Century/of the Millennium/of the Week" battle in the ACC. Let’s pick winners, shall we?
Record Against the Spread Entering Week 8: 73-52-2 (.583)
