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.
Ball State at Kent State Line: Ball State by 1. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
As a disclaimer, don't go nuts with my college football picks. I'm much better at picking NFL games (at least I used to be); I'm just doing these upon request. Follow @walterfootball for updates.
Ball State just pulled off two upset victories, but now it's a road favorite. I don't like that change in dynamic for them. Kent State's in a good spot.
College Football Pick: Kent State +1 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
Arizona State at California Line: California by 1.5. Saturday, 4:00 p.m.
California is coming off two consecutive brutal losses to Ohio State and USC. It could be out of gas against a superior Arizona State squad.
College Football Pick: Arizona State +1.5 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
UTEP at East Carolina Line: East Carolina by 4.5. Saturday, 7:00 p.m.
UTEP battled Wisconsin tough last week. I think that'll give the Miners some encouragement. They should be able to pull the upset here.
College Football Pick: UTEP +4.5 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$330
Texas-San Antonio at New Mexico State Line: Texas-San Antonio by 1. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
Texas-San Antonio is undefeated and shouldn't have any issues with a New Mexico State squad that just lost to New Mexico.
College Football Pick: Texas-San Antonio -1 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Oregon State at Arizona Line: Arizona by 2.5. Saturday, 10:00 p.m.
The wrong team is favored in this matchup. Oregon State is really good, while overrated Arizona couldn't do anything against Oregon. The Wildcats will be flat coming off that loss.
College Football Pick: Oregon State +2.5 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
I think you are missing one BIG cut and that's Jason Peters. He takes too many penalties and is being paid way too much (cap number is $11.7 million I believe). Cutting clears $10.7 million in cap space. I just don't think they can keep him around with that cap number.
PIT= NE D has not gone up an offense even close to this, Bell is awesome and if NE stacks the box then it goes to Brown and PITS D will pressure Brady Big, all day and this kid Dupree OLB who started week 14 and has 4.5 sacks looks like a winner!
This is the first draft that I actually have taken time scouting and looking into the players and teams. But again, it is still really early and a lot more scouting and more things need to happen in the process in order to get me a basis to go on. In this particular mock I predicted the picks based on where I think the SHOULD go not what I think they WILL Do. I will do drafts like those but not in this one.
