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.
South Carolina at Vanderbilt Line: South Carolina by 6.5. Thursday, 7:00 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.
This is one of those situations where the nationally televised road favorite is getting tons of action. In fact, South Carolina is getting twice as much money as any other team Thursday night. Vanderbilt is a live home dog with the superior quarterback.
College Football Pick: Vanderbilt +6.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Boise State at Michigan State Line: Michigan State by 7. Friday, 8:00 p.m.
Boise State has lost so many starters, including Kellen Moore. I feel like they're just touchdown underdogs based on name recognition. Michigan State is far superior.
College Football Pick: Michigan State -7 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
Ohio at Penn State Line: Penn State by 6. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
This has an "us against the world" feel about it. The NCAA and media destroyed Penn State this offseason, so the remaining Nittany Lion players may want to prove that they're still a legitimate team with a big victory in this game.
College Football Pick: Penn State -6 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
Florida International at Duke Line: Duke by 3.5. Saturday, 7:00 p.m.
The better team is getting the points in this matchup. Florida International won eight games last season and returns most of its starters. Duke stinks, as always.
College Football Pick: Florida International +3.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Kentucky at Louisville Line: Louisville by 13.5. Sunday, 3:30 p.m.
Louisville is a good team, but this is a big rivalry, so I feel like the Cardinals are favored by too much, especially considering that Kentucky is coming out of the vastly superior conference. By the way, the underdog is 8-4 against the spread in this series since 2000.
College Football Pick: Kentucky +13.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
@Mark C. I was going to point out to Walter that people can actually travel and most people attending games don't live within walking distance of the stadiums. A 4 or 5 hour drive to go see a game is absolutely nothing. It's only 8 regular season home games each season after all.
Here we are a little over a month away from the big draft. Last year at this time the big trades were happening. Fantasy Football junkie so I love the draft. Had a few thoughts on the top 6 players from the 2016 draft ( was cool how they actually panned out ) so I thought I`d do it again this year. Went with 12 players this year.
Most intriguing ?? Watson-Trubisky-Mahomes & Kizer... Once again , just like last year, the QB position has the most questions and interest.
Safest picks? Garrett-Thomas-Adams & Barnett all look nfl ready.
Most athletic? Peppers-Samuel-Melifonwu & Ross... (GARRETT)
Just wow on how deep this draft class is.
I believe there are no franchise QB's in this draft, possible for teams to trade into the lower 1st round to grab a QB. Defense is deep, especially in the secondary and that makes this draft a crapshoot.
