Tulane at Wake Forest.
Line: Wake Forest by 17.

Thursday, 7:00 p.m.

As a disclaimer, don't go nuts with my college football picks. I'm much better at picking NFL games (which is saying a lot). Follow @walterfootball for updates.

While re-watching the 2015 NFL season this summer and looking at all the spreads beforehand, it was clearer to me than ever that some lines in the NFL are just way off because of public perception. It seems like it could even be worse in college football, where the public doesn't understand how good some of the teams are. This is a classic case, as these teams are pretty close on paper, yet because Wake Forest is from the big-name conference, it's favored by more than two touchdowns. I'll grab the 17 with Tulane.

College Football Pick: Tulane +17 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200









Kansas State at Stanford.
Line: Stanford by 15.

Friday, 9:00 p.m.

Betting against overrated teams and big-name players is a recipe for success, and that's what I'll be doing here. Christian McCaffrey is a great player and stands a good chance of being a first-round pick, as you can see in my 2017 NFL Mock Draft, but Kansas State is way too good to be two-touchdown underdogs. The Wildcats have some quarterback concerns, but they have a very good defense and happen to be strong in the trenches on both sides of the ball. I expect them to keep this contest close.

College Football Pick: Kansas State +15 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300






Bowling Green at Ohio State.
Line: Ohio State by 28.

Saturday, 12:00 p.m.

Anyone who consistently bet against Ohio State last year made a killing. I think the opposite could be true this year. The Buckeyes were coming off a championship victory last season and simply didn't care. This team will be hungrier. Oh, and Bowling Green might just be one of the worst teams in Division I-A. If so, this spread should be much higher.

College Football Pick: Ohio State -28 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200






Oklahoma vs. Houston.
Line: Oklahoma by 12.

Saturday, 12:00 p.m.

The championship-hopeful Sooners take on a mid-major. Easy blowout, right? I don't think so. Houston is a very good team, led by Greg Ward Jr., and it'll be hungry to prove itself against a squad expected to make a run at a title. Bob Stoops has a history of choking like Aurora Snow, and that could happen on kickoff weekend.

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






USC vs. Alabama.
Line: Alabama by 11.5.

Saturday, 8:00 p.m.

You bet against Alabama when they're huge favorites. You wager on them in big games where the spread isn't too high. The latter is true here. The Crimson Tide possess the better talent, and Nick Saban will have a master game plan prepared for the Trojans.

Follow me @walterfootball to see if anything changes.

College Football Pick: Alabama -11.5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
