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.
Houston at Tulane Line: Houston by 34. 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.
I've been on Houston for the past few weeks, and I'm going to keep riding them. They're going to win out and claim the co-national championship by beating some crap team in a crap bowl.
College Football Pick: Houston -34 (4 Units) -- Correct; +$400
Nebraska at Penn State Line: Nebraska by 3.5. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
Joe Paterno has been fired. The Penn State football players have spent the entire week meeting with Paterno, rallying for Paterno and doing other things that don't include preparing for this football game. I don't know how the hell they can possibly beat Nebraska considering the circumstances.
College Football Pick: Nebraska -3.5 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$330
Oklahoma State at Texas Tech Line: Oklahoma State by 17. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
Oklahoma State nearly lost to Kansas State. I wasn't really too impressed, and they could easily lose to a Texas Tech squad that took down Oklahoma.
College Football Pick: Texas Tech +17 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Western Kentucky at LSU Line: LSU by 41. Saturday, 7:00 p.m.
I don't see Western Kentucky keeping up with LSU at all.
College Football Pick: LSU -41 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Alabama at Mississippi State Line: Alabama by 18. Saturday, 7:45 p.m.
Alabama will be flat off its loss to LSU. Their offense sucks anyway, so covering 18 points will be difficult.
College Football Pick: Mississippi State +18 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
A little late on this par but here goes: Houston -134 and if time available going in the second tier spot the Dodgers either with the high ML or I may go the way of the RL. Another: Colorado -134, two open. Another: Nats -149, two open. Another: Boston -200 (Sale), two open. GL tonight folks.
With every sports outlet picking the Titans, I feel they are overrated. I had them underrated last year but loved their o-line. They keep referencing before Mariota got injured. The thing is they were getting killed by the Jaguars before that injury. They pulled out some huge wins vs KC and GB but also struggled in their own division. I also wonder how Mariota's injury heals for this season as it was late in the season. I think they will be more of a .500 team that keeps games close. Hopefully, that means they cover the spread as underdogs.
