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.
Rice at Houston Line: Houston by 27.5. Thursday, 8:00 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.
Houston is on fire right now, and I expect them to keep rolling. Considering Rice is traveling during the week (since Rice and Houston are so far away from each other), I don't see how they can possibly keep up with the Cougars.
College Football Pick: Houston -27.5 (5 Units) -- Correct; +$500
Northwestern at Indiana Line: Northwestern by 9. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
I know Indiana's not any good, but Northwestern stinks too. They don't deserve to be road favorites of this much, especially after an emotional loss against Penn State.
College Football Pick: Indiana +9 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Washington State at Oregon Line: Oregon by 35. Saturday, 3:00 p.m.
I took the Ducks last week, and I'm picking them again. This has blowout written all over it.
College Football Pick: Oregon -35 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$330
Oklahoma at Kansas State Line: Oklahoma by 13.5. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
I think Kansas State has a good shot of winning this one outright, so I'm definitely taking the points. Overrated Oklahoma will be flat following its loss to Texas Tech.
College Football Pick: Kansas State +13.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Wisconsin at Ohio State Line: Wisconsin by 7. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
Another flat team. I don't know how Wisconsin will get up for this game after losing on that Hail Mary.
College Football Pick: Ohio State +7 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Seems like a month ago that i was 8-2 in two days of MLB play, actually it was 4 days ago. Another crap result yesterday and I'm getting a little cheesed about it. If I had not used hedging techniques I would be bleeding coin by now, but since I am, it's just a stinger. For today: In an ongoing par from yesterday I'm sticking the Under 8.5 -115 in the Braves/Dodger game in the second tier spot. Start up pars with Astros: -118, Boston -123, and AZ +1.5 RL -160, all with two open. GL and hopefully the Red tide will fade.
