The Colts are not a top 5 team. They are like the Saints where yes that offense can be potent, but with the defense being super porous (90 points in 2 games) and not defensive talent being added the typical 30 points per game won't be enough. With the Texans and Jags adding all that talent they will be lucky to win that division as well.
@Walter: My friend you are unfortunately in what I like to call the "sh t twi-light zone." I have been following your NBA picks for the last few days or so and......Damn son, you are at ground zero of the already mentioned "....zone." We have all been there and like a bad taco,..."this to will pass." Tonight s debacle was a missed 2nd free throw by Toronto that would have at least gave you a push. Hang in there man.....just brutal three or four games.

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.
Maryland at Clemson Line: Clemson by 31.5. Saturday, 3:30 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.
Maryland is a mess. The team has endured so many injuries that it's starting a linebacker at quarterback. I don't see how they can be competitive with the Tigers, who have blown many teams out this year.
College Football Pick: Clemson -31.5 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
San Jose State at New Mexico State Line: San Jose State by 22.5. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
Speaking of teams that aren't competitive, how do you lose by 35 to Auburn? New Mexico State is a disaster. San Jose State is a dominant small-conference team that has taken care of business almost every week.
College Football Pick: San Jose State -22.5 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
Notre Dame at Boston College Line: Notre Dame by 18.5. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
You know the last time Notre Dame won by more than 18 points? It was Oct. 6. Granted, the Irish have played better opponents than Boston College, but this is a heated rivalry. Plus, Notre Dame is traveling off an overtime victory, which is seldom good.
College Football Pick: Boston College +18.5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
Idaho at BYU Line: BYU by 38. Saturday, 10:15 p.m.
Idaho has been getting blown out almost every week. The only team the Vandals have beaten is New Mexico State (big surprise). BYU, meanwhile, is coming off a bye, so the team has had two weeks to prepare.
College Football Pick: BYU -38 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Oregon at California Line: Oregon by 28. Saturday, 10:30 p.m.
Oregon scores so quickly that it should have this spread covered by halftime. I don't see how Cal can be competitive without Keenan Allen.
College Football Pick: Oregon -28 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
