Stanford at Washington. Line: Washington by 3. 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 (which is saying a lot). Follow @walterfootball for updates.
Back in Week 1, I wrote that you can make money betting against media hype, and that's exactly what I did when I faded Stanford against a game Kansas State squad that beat the spread. Stanford has covered its next two games, but its victory over UCLA wasn't very impressive, as the Bruins appeared to be the better team. Washington is definitely the superior squad in this meeting, as quarterback Jake Browning should be able to throw all over the Cardinal. The Huskies have been bet up from -3 to -3.5 by the sharps, but -3 is still available at Bovada.

College Football Pick: Washington -3 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
North Carolina at Florida State. Line: Florida State by 11. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
Florida State has gotten a lot of recognition because of its excellent second half against Ole Miss, but besides that, what have the Seminoles done this season? They were demolished by Louisville and then beat South Florida. Big deal. We've seen Chad Kelly have a meltdown against another opponent in the second half, making Florida State's Week 1 victory less impressive. North Carolina is a decent team that can score very well, and it's coming off a nice win against a high-powered Pittsburgh squad. I think the Tar Heels can cover this spread.

College Football Pick: North Carolina +11 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
Texas A&M at South Carolina. Line: Texas A&M by 18. Saturday, 4:00 p.m.
Texas A&M is 4-0 right now, but they haven't exactly played the most challenging schedule, and they've yet to be huge favorites over a 1-A opponent. Not that South Carolina is a great team, or anything, but the Gamecocks are competent and own some victories over 1-A opponents this season. This line seems a bit out of control.
College Football Pick: South Carolina +18 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Marshall at Pittsburgh. Line: Pittsburgh by 16. Saturday, 7:30 p.m.
I've been going with Pittsburgh the past two weeks because I believed its explosive offense could allow them to hang as sizeable underdogs. This week is a different dynamic, as the Panthers' putrid defense will allow Marshall to stay within the game. The Herd can definitely score, so I think they'll be able to keep the margin to within double digits.
College Football Pick: Marshall +16 (2 Units) -- Push; $0
Oregon at Washington State. Line: Oregon by 1.5. Saturday, 9:30 p.m.
This spread feels like it's way off. The Ducks should be favored by a touchdown, or perhaps even more. They're definitely the better team. They nearly defeated a very good Nebraska squad, and while they lost to Colorado last week, I think it's because they were deflated coming off such an emotional loss. Washington State, meanwhile, is not very good. The Cougars have been outgained in terms of yards per play this year despite their three opponents being Eastern Washington, Boise State and Idaho.
