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
@Steeler Fan 3:16 OLB is a need, but it shouldn't be... Dupree looks like he's on his way to join Jarvis Jones in Bustville. I would like them to get a good edge rusher, but i'm not trusting their scouting Department or GM Colbert at this time. Steelers drafting OLB's these days are like the Browns drafting QB's...
@Big Al Sadly, before the Steelers draft an OLB, they need to overhaul the scouting department, because they haven't had anyone good that doesn't wear #92 over the last several years, and that was due to very bad drafting. Might be worth taking an under-hyped mid-rounder there.. as for their #1 pick, i'd like to see what they do with that former Temple guy before using a #1 on another ILB. as for QB, the last vet they brought in was QBDK. There's just not that much out there, so drafting one would make sense, unless we want another year of Landry Jones! ARGH!!!!!!!!
