By the way, the third-annual Walter/Joker Annual Challenge is on, as I'll be competing with the Joker's College Picks. We each pick five games and see who does the best each week.
Minnesota (1-4) at Wisconsin (4-1) Line: Wisconsin by 22. Saturday, 12:00 ET
This line is way too high. In the past three weeks, Minnesota has played close games with USC and Northwestern. Wisconsin is coming off a loss and won't be as sharp.
Illinois (2-2) at Penn State (3-2) Line: Penn State by 7.5. Saturday, 12:00 ET
I've bet against Penn State a couple of times this year. Not this Saturday. Illinois is complete garbage, but managed to catch Ohio State in a down week. Their tight contest with the Buckeyes, as well as Penn State's loss to Iowa has deflated this line. I'll like the value we're getting with the Nittany Lions.
Prediction: Penn State 31, Illinois 13 Penn State -7.5 (4 Units) -- Incorrect; -$440
Boston College (2-2) at N.C. State (4-1) Line: N.C. State by 10. Saturday, 12:00 ET
Interesting that this line opened at -10 and has fallen to -9.5 in most places (not Bodog) despite tons of action on the host.
The sharps know something, and that's the fact that N.C. State will be really flat in this matchup. The Wolfpack just aren't good enough to be laying double digits against a functional team anyway.
Prediction: N.C. State 20, Boston College 17 Boston College +10 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Pittsburgh (2-2) at Notre Dame (2-3) Line: Notre Dame by 6. Saturday, 3:30 ET
I don't know how the hell Pitt covered last week, but I'm fading them again. The Panthers are garbage, as their quarterback is some 5-foot-6 tattooed person who can't get the ball to Jonathan Baldwin. This Pitt team is epically bad.
A little late on this par but here goes: Houston -134 and if time available going in the second tier spot the Dodgers either with the high ML or I may go the way of the RL. Another: Colorado -134, two open. Another: Nats -149, two open. Another: Boston -200 (Sale), two open. GL tonight folks.
With every sports outlet picking the Titans, I feel they are overrated. I had them underrated last year but loved their o-line. They keep referencing before Mariota got injured. The thing is they were getting killed by the Jaguars before that injury. They pulled out some huge wins vs KC and GB but also struggled in their own division. I also wonder how Mariota's injury heals for this season as it was late in the season. I think they will be more of a .500 team that keeps games close. Hopefully, that means they cover the spread as underdogs.
