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.
Baylor at Kansas State Line: Baylor by 3.5. Saturday, 3:30 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.
I like Kansas State as an undefeated home dog. I feel like Baylor's getting a little too much credit.
College Football Pick: Kansas State +3.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Arizona at USC Line: USC by 13.5. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
I'm so mad at myself that I got off the fade-USC bandwagon last week. Well, I'm back on. The Trojans stink.
College Football Pick: Arizona +13.5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
Clemson at Virginia Tech Line: Virginia Tech by 7. Saturday, 6:00 p.m.
Why is this game at 6? And why does everyone keep undervaluing Clemson? The Tigers are a really good football team. I'm taking the points.
College Football Pick: Clemson +7 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
Florida Atlantic at Louisiana-Lafayette Line: Louisiana-Lafayette by 9. Saturday, 7:00 p.m.
This spread is inflated because Louisiana-Lafayette won as a 17-point underdog last week. Well, the Cajuns A) aren't that good and B) have a tough matchup against Troy next week, so there's look-ahead potential.
College Football Pick: Florida Atlantic +9 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Nebraska at Wisconsin Line: Wisconsin by 9. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
Another undefeated dog. This should be a close game.
College Football Pick: Nebraska +9 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
@robert4fun0058 This was what happened with Cam Newton until about a week before the draft, then everyone had him at number one. Another similar situation was Russell Wilson, who many on this message board were calling to be picked in round one, but most were ignoring that and coming up with reasons why the eye test was wrong. Manzel and Tebow, on the other hand got no lack of hype. The eye test tells us Watson and Newton and Wilson are all NFL QBs and Manzel and Tebow etc are not. But there are still enough people who will take Goff over Prescott, Tannehill over Wilson, etc. I am not saying race is a factor, but...somebody else will need to explain to me what make Trubinsky a better QB prospect than Kizer
I've been on a hiatus with draft work lately and was focused on my Draft Prospect Rankings which you could find in the rants on this site. So, I figured doing one more before the Combine where more prospect movement could occur to see where I stand before and after with those prospects. So, without further adieu here we go!
