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.
Kansas at Kansas State Line: Kansas State by 24. 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.
Kansas stinks. They've lost to Rice and Northern Illinois. The Jayhawks' sole victory was against 1-AA South Dakota State in which they failed to cover the spread. Kansas State is coming off a bye and should be focused on destroying its arch rival. Oh, and by the way, the Wildcats have defeated Kansas in their previous two meetings by a combined 90 points.
College Football Pick: Kansas State -24 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
Illinois at Wisconsin Line: Wisconsin by 14. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
Want to know why the Badgers are 1-4 against the spread this year? It's because they stink, yet they keep getting respect because they're "Wisconsin." Illinois sucks too, but the Badgers will be super flat coming off that Nebraska loss.
College Football Pick: Illinois +14 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
LSU at Florida Line: LSU by 2.5. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
Does anyone else think that LSU is a bit of a fraud? They've had issues with Auburn and Towson in back-to-back weeks. Florida, meanwhile, has done nothing but take care of business. It seems like the better team is getting points at home.
College Football Pick: Florida +2.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Washington State at Oregon State Line: Oregon State by 16. Saturday, 6:00 p.m.
Oregon State won its first three games as an underdog, but now it's favored, which is an unfamiliar role for the team. Washington State kept things close with Oregon, so it should be able to cover the number against the Beavers.
College Football Pick: Washington State +16 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
West Virginia at Texas Line: Texas by 6.5. Saturday, 7:00 p.m.
I'm going to make this analysis short and sweet: Geno Smith is getting nearly a touchdown.
College Football Pick: West Virginia +6.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
I like your write up on Trubisky. I also like the gutsy move of Mahomes at #2 especially with Garrett on the board. However, there are glaring mistakes elsewhere. No way, the Saints draft a RB in 1st round after paying Peterson to be the primary back up to Ingram. Plus, they desperately need talent on the defensive side of the ball. Also, the Browns 2nd pick wouldn't be a rush OLB when they are converting to a base 4-3 and have Jamie Collins at the Sam.
Come on Walt. You have the Vikings drafting for need. They did a fairly good job if FA filling needs. I could see the RB in the second because thats value. The only needs they have are at dt and safety. I hope they pick highest rated player.
Made several updates based on Conley news, changes in both rounds.
I don't care how you did against Western Albuquerque Institute of Technology. How did you do vs ranked teams? Didn't play against any? Okay, for you I leaned on composite rankings. I would have done more than 2 rounds, but the hackers kept me out for what seemed like an eternity.
