By the way, the fourth-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.
Central Florida at BYU Line: BYU by 3. Friday, 8:00 p.m.
As a disclaimer, don't go nuts with my college football picks. I'm much better at picking NFL games; I'm just doing these upon request. Follow @walterfootball for updates.
BYU was just blown out, but I like them to bounce back as a weeknight home favorite.
College Football Pick: BYU -3 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
Notre Dame at Pittsburgh Line: Notre Dame by 6.5. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
Notre Dame was always a good team; it just lost a fluke game to underrated South Florida and then was flat at Michigan. The Irish will continue to rebound.
College Football Pick: Notre Dame -6.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
Florida State at Clemson Line: Clemson by 2. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
Florida State was billed as the next big thing, but suffered a home loss to Oklahoma. I don't think the Seminoles will be able to bounce back from that this week.
College Football Pick: Clemson -2 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Louisiana-Lafayette at Florida International Line: Florida International by 17. Saturday, 6:00 p.m.
This may seem like a totally random game, but I'm wary of teams that have been winning as underdogs and are now favored by a wide margin. This is not a good spot for Florida International.
College Football Pick: Louisiana Lafayette +17 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
Tulsa at Boise State Line: Boise State by 28.5. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
Boise State's on a mission - and I'm going along for the ride.
College Football Pick: Boise State -28.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
No real objection to the Watkins pick for Cleveland in the 3rd, but if there is an olinemen there worthy of the pick it should be that. We need olinemen in a bad way. Also we are getting Desmond Bryant back and have Shelton, modern, and Nassib who is a promising prospect
Good mock draft. But as a life-long Raiders fan who watched every game I can tell you our LB corps was sufficient. The Media may not know names like Perry Riley Jr. or Ben Heeney but they played exceptionally well when called upon. An OLB to replace Malcolm Smith however would be a good idea. But I think we need a RB, one like D'onta Freeman or Dalvin Cook. Latavius is a poor RB who runs too upright and gives up at the end of runs. We can't always rely on Derek Carr to carry the team. Peppers is definitely an exceptional player but with Reggie Nelson, Karl Joseph, and of course, Khalil Mack, LB/S is not a pressing issue. Interior DL or RB.
What an exciting weekend of football that was and we're one step closer to the Super Bowl. Sadly, more teams have been set in their draft position after this weekend. Getting closer to the deadline to declare for the draft to help round out this draft class. As per usual please leave comments and reactions I always try to reply and give some feedback.
