College football odds, lines, schedule for Week 7: Alabama opens as favorite over Georgia at home

It is never too early to take a look at the lines for next week’s action, and the William Hill Sportsbook has released them for Week 7 action already. That includes the huge SEC showdown between SEC teams as No. 2 Alabama hosts No. 3 Georgia in Tuscaloosa next Saturday night on CBS.

Rays win (+135)

Like most people heading into the series — at least from what I’ve seen — I picked the Yankees to win. I think it’ll be close and hard fought, though, and I wonder about the Rays sitting around with their 40-20 regular-season record and fairly easy two-game sweep of the Blue Jays seeing nearly everyone
