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.


Ole Miss at Vanderbilt
Line: Ole Miss by 3.5.

Thursday, 9:15 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). Follow @walterfootball for updates.

I love betting on live home dogs under the lights on national TV. Vanderbilt will be pumped up for this game. I feel like the Commodores and the Rebels are pretty even; my projected spread for this contest is Vanderbilt -2.5, so we're getting good value with the host.

College Football Pick: Vanderbilt +3.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110









Purdue at Cincinnati
Line: Cincinnai by 10.5.

Saturday, 12:00 p.m.

I don't understand why this spread is so low; my projected line is Cincinnati -19. Perhaps it's because former head coach Butch Jones has taken the Tennessee job, but still - the Bearcats are just so much better than crappy Purdue that I don't think it matters who's coaching them.

College Football Pick: Cincinnati -10.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200






Northern Illinois at Iowa
Line: Iowa by 3.

Saturday, 3:30 p.m.

I'm betting against another crappy Big Ten team here. Iowa stinks and should not be favored. Northern Illinois won't be intimidated to play on the road at a Big Ten school, given that they took on Florida State in a bowl game last year. My projected spread for this game is Northern Illinois -6, so we're getting great value with the visitor.

College Football Pick: Northern Illinois +3 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100






Oklahoma State vs. Mississippi State
Line: Oklahoma State by 12.5.

Saturday, 3:30 p.m.

Oklahoma State should win this game easily; I have them as 20-point favorites over the Bulldogs. This contest is on a neutral field, but it's in Houston, so the Cowboys should have more fans there.

College Football Pick: Oklahoma State -12.5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100






Alabama vs. Virginia Tech
Line: Alabama by 19.

Saturday, 5:30 p.m.

This spread is small as well; Alabama should be favored in the mid-20s. Virginia Tech isn't a bad team, but the Tide should be able to take care of business.

College Football Pick: Alabama -19 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
