By the way, the fifth-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.
Florida State at Maryland Line: Florida State by 31. 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.
I might as well keep what I wrote last week. 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 Seminoles, who have blown many teams out this year.
College Football Pick: Florida State -31 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$330
Memphis at UAB Line: UAB by 10. Saturday, 2:00 p.m.
Why is UAB favored by 10 points? They're 3-7. They won two games in a row, and now we're supposed to buy them as double-digit favorites? I don't think so. I'll take the points.
College Football Pick: Memphis +10 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
Wake Forest at Notre Dame Line: Notre Dame by 24. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
I went against Notre Dame last week, but now I'm betting on them. They should be able to demolish a Wake Forest squad that has lost by 29-plus in two of its previous three games.
College Football Pick: Notre Dame -24 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Stanford at Oregon Line: Oregon by 20.5. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
Oregon owned Stanford even when Andrew Luck was the quarterback. The Ducks score so quickly and should be able to pile up points in the second half to beat the high number.
College Football Pick: Oregon -20.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
BYU at San Jose State Line: BYU by 3. Saturday, 10:30 p.m.
Everyone's familiar with BYU, but San Jose State has been the western mid-major that has been the most impressive this year. I love getting the Spartans as a home dog in a statement game.
College Football Pick: San Jose State +3 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
Walter your inability to bet the Patriots all year with Brady on the team is inexplicable. Yes, since Brady came back from suspension, you bet the Patriots 0 times, even though they covered as decent and often huge favorites. Why? Why are you more afraid than Goodell is to show up at Foxborough to bet on a great team to beat inferior oponents by a large margin? You lost out on a lot of money. As for the Patriots defense who will be "overwhelmed" by Pittsburgh hahaha, the Patriots defense has stepped up when it needed to. Logan Ryan who is not even the best DB let alone CB on the team just had a dominant game covering one of the best wide receivers in the league. And you're going to say that Brady can't go stride for stride against Big Ben who, with his 0 TD performance last Sunday, once again proved that he has turned into an awful road playoff QB? You know what 0 TDs will win you in the AFC Championship game? I don't believe that betting on Pitt getting 6 points is a bad decision - seeing as I may do the same. But to predict the Patriots to straight up lose is laughable. The advantage they have on defense and coaching is pretty big and they may even be even offensively solely because Brady has been using Edelman more and more and Dion Lewis's return has shown to be very important.
