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.
Boise State at Fresno State Line: Boise State by 20.5. Saturday, 9:00 p.m.
As a disclaimer, don't go nuts with my college football picks. I'm much better at picking NFL games (though not this year); I'm just doing these upon request. Follow @walterfootball for updates.
It's funny that Boise State is known for its Smurf Turf homefield advantage, yet they always seem to cover the spread as large road favorites. This veteran Bronco team knows how to take care of business.
College Football Pick: Boise State -20.5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
Minnesota at Purdue Line: Purdue by 10.5. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
I don't like the fact that Purdue is a double-digit conference favorite here coming off a loss as a dog. This seems like a pretty bad spot for the Boilermakers.
College Football Pick: Minnesota +10.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Illinois at Indiana Line: Illinois by 14.5. Saturday, 2:00 p.m.
Illinois is coming off an emotional win in a very close game over rival Northwestern. I don't think they'll cover two touchdowns at frisky Indiana.
College Football Pick: Indiana +14.5 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$330
Iowa at Penn State Line: Penn State by 4. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
Penn State is my alma mater. I've watched this Nittany Lion team for weeks now, and it's like spending three hours in a dentist's chair each time. They can't score, and their quarterbacks stink. Iowa owns Penn State, and should be able to upset us again.
College Football Pick: Iowa +4 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Kansas at Oklahoma State Line: Oklahoma State by 31.5. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
I usually don't take high favorites like this, but I don't see how Kansas can possibly contain this red-hot Oklahoma State team coming off rest. The Jayhawks were blown out by Georgia Tech a few weeks ago, 66-24. This one could be uglier.
College Football Pick: Oklahoma State -31.5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
@chuckster all you do is post insignificant journal entries with no means to an end or idea of where you going or where you been....records???? Save the tough talk we can meet anytime a simple response with records will suffice
I don't see this ending well. I don't think its a good idea to take the under on 2 teams in the same division, especially with low numbers. One team beats the other, then all they need is a few fluke wins. Anon is absolutely right about new coaches getting the most out of their teams. And although I agree the eagles are going to contend, I'm not completely sold. Lets look at lane's 5-1 record, Browns, bears, 3rd string cowboys, giants where the offense put up less than 300 yards and a good steelers team. So you have 1 quality win. My concern would be wentz's struggles on the road which is why I wont bet it. Under on the jets is just free money though.
