Six FBS matchups have been postponed due to COVID-19 concerns in Week 7, but there are still plenty of games bettors can get in on. No. 2 Alabama vs. No. 3 Georgia on CBS at 8 p.m. ET is the premier matchup of the day, with the Week 7 college football odds from William Hill listing the Tide at -4.5. Nick Saban's status is uncertain heading into Saturday after he tested positive for COVID-19 earlier in the week. He's since tested negative and could be on the sidelines, pending more testing. The game opened at Alabama -6.5 before the Saban news.
There are four other SEC matchups, plus Power Five action in the Big 12 and ACC. UCF at Memphis (+2.5) highlights action in the American Athletic Conference.

Top Week 7 college football predictions
One of the top Week 7 college football picks the model is recommending: Ole Miss (-1.5 at William Hill) covers at Arkansas in a 3:30 p.m. ET kickoff on Saturday. The Rebels fell to Alabama in Week 6, but piled up a whopping 48 points as they covered the spread (+24).
Lane Kiffin's squad needs to make adjustments on defense, but the Rebels have one of the nation's most prolific offenses as they enter Week 7 averaging 41.7 points per game. The model is calling for Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral to throw for well over 200 yards and two touchdowns, while the Ole Miss backs combine for over 200 yards on the ground as Ole Miss covers in 70 percent of simulations.
Another one of the Week 7 college football predictions from the model: Pittsburgh (+13) stays within the spread in a noon ET matchup at Miami (FL). The Hurricanes rolled to three wins and three covers to start the season, but had that momentum halted by a a 42-17 loss against top-ranked Clemson. They failed to stay within the spread (+14.5) in that matchup.
Now they'll have to bounce back against a tough Pittsburgh team in an early start on Saturday. Pitt quarterback Kenny Pickett is battling an ankle injury, but has at least a chance to play. Regardless of his status, the Panthers still give up only 18.2 points per game and they have a serviceable rushing attack that averages well over 100 yards per matchup.
SportsLine's model sees an 11-point difference between the teams, creating value on Pittsburgh, who covers in well over 50 percent of simulations. The under (47.5) also hits in well over 50 percent of simulations.
