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.
Missouri at Florida Line: Florida by 17. 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.
Florida just lost its chance at the national championship. Its season is essentially over. The Gators are going to be flat against Missouri, especially in an early start like this.
College Football Pick: Missouri +17 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
TCU at West Virginia Line: West Virginia by 6. Saturday, 3:00 p.m.
West Virginia was clobbered in consecutive games, but I think a week off is exactly what the team needed to figure things out again. The Mountaineers should be back to form against TCU.
College Football Pick: West Virginia -6 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
Texas State at Utah State Line: Utah State by 25.5. Saturday, 3:00 p.m.
Utah State has been clobbering everyone lately and I expect that to continue. I don't think Texas State stands much of a chance.
College Football Pick: Utah State -25.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
UMass at Northern Illinois Line: Northern Illinois by 34.5. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
This spread is very high, but this should be an easy blowout for Northern Illinois. The Huskies have clobbered teams far worse than the Minutemen, who are not competitive with anyone.
College Football Pick: Northern Illinois -34.5 (4 Units) -- Correct; +$400
Illinois at Ohio State Line: Ohio State by 27.5. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
I was very impressed with the Buckeyes last week. Penn State had all the dynamics in its favor, yet Ohio State just destroyed its rival. I think that momentum will carry over to this game. This shouldn't be close. Illinois is complete garbage and can't compete with the Buckeyes.
College Football Pick: Ohio State -27.5 (4 Units) -- Correct; +$400
Seriously, do Walt and Charlie make stupid picks for the Bills, to get clicks? Pat Maholmes and some tackle? Yes, take the 2nd rated tackle or Mike Williams when just about every WR on the Bills roster is a FA, or injured? Woods isn't good until Tyrod Taylor has to focus on him and he nets 162 tards. Taylor can only focus b on 1 WR at a time. If the Bills are smart they take Willians, plays Jones as the passing game can't get much simpler than we've run with Taylor. Just make every week a track meet with Watkins, Williams, Clay, and McCoy. You don't need to read defenses as much when you throw over top of them.
What an exciting weekend of football that was and we're one step closer to the Super Bowl. Sadly, more teams have been set in their draft position after this weekend. Getting closer to the deadline to declare for the draft to help round out this draft class. As per usual please leave comments and reactions I always try to reply and give some feedback.
