Pamela Maldonado joins Minty Bets to give her best bet for Week 7 of the college football season. She also gives her pick for Georgia vs. Kentucky.
MINTY BETS: It's now week seven of college football. I'm Minty Bets joined by Pam Maldonado. And she is here to give us her best bet for the week. Pam, what's your favorite pick on the board?
PAM MALDONADO: Minty, my favorite pick on the board this week is Purdue at Iowa under 43. Purdue, they have question marks on quarterback alternating between two right now. Jack Plummer, 0 interceptions, Aiden O'Connell, 5 interceptions. The smart thing would be two play Plummer, but if O'Connell does get the start, what hurts unders scores from turnovers. And fortunate for Purdue who are the Boilermakers.
The Hawkeyes, they will be without defensive back Riley Moss who leads the team in interceptions. He's out in this game from injury. Iowa, they're 110th in total offense. Purdue is in top 20 defense. Both of these teams are top 10 in opponent touchdowns allowed. This will be a typical Big 10 under.
MINTY BETS: All right, moving on to the marquee game of the week, we've got Kentucky at Georgia. The Bulldogs are 22 and 1/2 point favorites and the total is 44 and 1/2. What do you think about this one?
PAM MALDONADO: Minty, give me the dog. Kentucky plus 22 and 1/2 at Georgia. This defense, it is penetrable. Teams are getting down field. They're just not converting into points. Auburn had three red zone trips that resulted in a missed field goal and two turnovers on downs, while South Carolina also had two red zone trips that also resulted in field goals. Now, you may look at Arkansas, another run only team that was shut out against this Bulldogs defense.
Well, the Razorbacks, they're not all that comparable to Kentucky, 87th in rushing defense. Kentucky has a higher yards per carry, top 20 in rushing defense, top 15 in total defense. Now the Wildcats, they are just a higher caliber of opponent and capable of keeping this within 10.
MINTY BETS: All righty, Pam. Going with the dogs, but not the Bulldogs. I love it. If you guys want to bet on this game, make sure to take advantage of our risk-free bet. Sign up @BetMGM.com/Yahoo.
