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.
Boise State at Fresno State. Line: Fresno State by 3.5. Friday, 9:00 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). Follow @walterfootball for updates.
I can't understand why Boise State is an underdog to Fresno State. The Broncos are the far superior team. They're rolling right now, while Fresno most recently had issues dispatching Cal Poly.
College Football Pick: Boise State +3.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
UL-Monroe at Baylor. Line: Baylor by 29.5. Saturday, 4:00 p.m.
I mentioned the following dynamic in this spot last week: "I love betting on very talented teams coming off byes that get to take on far inferior foes. It's almost always a blowout." Baylor, like Florida State, is in a similar position.
College Football Pick: Baylor -29.5 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
Kansas State at Texas. Line: Texas by 5.5. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
More copy-paste time! "There's usually tons of money to be made when prominent programs tank. The Longhorns are complete garbage." I don't understand why they're favored over Kansas State.
College Football Pick: Kansas State +5.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Hawaii at Nevada. Line: Nevada by 10. Saturday, 8:05 p.m.
Nevada was blasted by Florida State last week. The team has major injury issues at quarterback, so I'd make them -5 at best in this matchup. Thus, I feel like there's some value with Hawaii.
College Football Pick: Hawaii +10 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
New Mexico State at UCLA. Line: UCLA by 42. Saturday, 10:30 p.m.
Remember how I said Texas was bad? Well, the Longhorns beat New Mexico State, 56-7. That's how truly awful New Mexico State is. In fact, I'd say the Aggies are the worst team in 1-A. I feel like red-hot UCLA should be close to -50 or so.
College Football Pick: UCLA -42 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
