SVP does the unthinkable and hands out some favorites among his Week 7 college football winners. (2:17)

Every Thursday during the season, Bill Connelly, Doug Kezirian, Preston Johnson and Phil Steele will provide their top plays across the college football landscape.

Here are their best bets for the seventh full week of the college football season:

Season ATS records:

Connelly: 12-6-1 (2-1 last week)
Kezirian: 22-17 (5-4 last week)
Johnson: 16-14-1 (3-2 last week)
Steele: 13-19 (4-1 last week)

Note: Picks from Caesars Sportsbook lines as of Wednesday night.

Saturday's games

Florida Gators at LSU Tigers (-13.5)

Kezirian: Following Florida's impressive win over unbeaten Auburn, I was hoping this line would be closer to 10; unfortunately, no such luck. I still think this is a strong play, given the situation. The Tigers cruised to a home win over Utah State, and the Gators battled and grinded to beat Auburn. We have seen teams in these situations run out of gas the following week, and I think that happens here. Additionally, I just feel LSU is superior on both sides of the ball and it finally has an offense that can cover a big spread against a quality opponent.
