Ohio vs. East Carolina.
Line: East Carolina by 13.5.

Monday, Dec. 23, 2:00 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.

Ohio is not a very good team; it was blown out in consecutive November games by scores of 30-3, 49-0 and 44-13 before beating hapless UMass at the very end. However, they're still the pick here because East Carolina shouldn't be favored by two touchdowns. The Pirates were exposed against Marshall in their season finale, losing by 31. The sharps know this, and that's why they're all over the Bobcats.

Oh, and since I know I'll be asked this, I have no lean on Army-Navy.

College Football Pick: Ohio +13.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110









Boise State vs. Oregon State.
Line: Oregon State by 2.5.

Tuesday, Dec. 24, 8:00 p.m.

It sucks that these teams have to play on Christmas Eve, but at least they'll be doing so in Hawaii. I like Boise State in this matchup, as Oregon State was in a massive tailspin at the end of the season, losing its final five games. The Beavers did play Oregon tough, but that was their real bowl game. Battling a team from an "inferior" conference is a step down for them, so where will the motivation be? The Broncos have the better rushing team, so that's another thing in their favor.

College Football Pick: Boise State +2.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110






Pittsburgh vs. Bowling Green.
Line: Bowling Green by 6.

Thursday, Dec. 26, 6:00 p.m.

I had to do a double take when I saw this spread. Bowling Green is favored by nearly a touchdown over a BCS team? Really? I understand the Falcons have a much better record, and that they beat an overhyped Northern Illinois team (I had Bowling Green for two units), but that's because they hail from MAC, which is a joke of a conference. Pittsburgh beat Notre Dame recently, which is more impressive than anything Bowling Green has done. The public is betting the Falcons like there's no tomorrow, so with that in mind, let's go with the Panthers.

College Football Pick: Pittsburgh +6 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200






Syracuse vs. Minnesota.
Line: Minnesota by 4.5.

Friday, Dec. 27, 6:00 p.m.

The public is pounding Minnesota, and understandably so. The Gophers have looked dominant on nationally televised games this year. They battled Wisconsin and Michigan State tough at the very end. However, the Gophers, who were once 8-2, had their eyes on a much greater prize at one point, so being matched up against "lowly" Syracuse could be deflating. I don't like how Minnesota concluded its regular season, while Syracuse has been competitive in most of its games this year (ignore that Florida State result because the Seminoles have demolished everyone).

College Football Pick: Syracuse +4.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200






Duke vs. Texas A&M.
Line: Texas A&M by 12.

Tuesday, Dec. 31, 8:00 p.m.

Texas A&M has checked out. You can see it by how it lost its final games of the season. Knowing they blew their chances at both the Heisman and the national championship, Johnny Manziel and his cohorts will be moving on to the NFL following this game against a Duke team they know nothing about. How much time do you think Manziel will spend preparing for Duke? He's likely setting up meetings with agents and doing things of that nature. The Blue Devils, meanwhile, would love nothing more than to beat the great Johnny Football.

College Football Pick: Duke +12 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
