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
ATL ave. over 30pts a game for the year, thru out the history of the NFL only 20% of the teams that did that (around 60) won the SB, last one was NO in 2009, not DEN and Manning or NE and Brady Both a few years ago or even Newton CAR last year. A professional better will not pick them to win the SB, they will try to predict when they are gonna lose, I say this week and they will only score between 17-20 points this week, if I am wrong then I will predict the same thing next week!
This draft is for the best pick IN MY OPINION for each franchise and possibly even change their fate. (Explanations will NOT be provided on all of the picks because some of the picks are a given on the reason. EX. Myles Garrett, Jonathan Allen)
This mock draft is based on what I would do as GM in each situation, not based on what I think actually will happen. Once free agency and the senior bowl clears things up, then I'll switch to a prediction mock. The exception to this logic is when credible reports show that a player is likely to go with a given team. I mostly use Draft Breakdown and my own eyes watching college football to decide.
