Utah at Arizona State. Line: Utah by 6. Thursday, 9:30 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.
There's a ridiculous amount of public action on Utah, which can't be a surprise because the Utes are billed as a great team from the Pac-12, as evidenced by their No. 13 ranking. However, Utah's track record on the road is pretty shaky. They lost to Cal by double digits and nearly dropped a game at Oregon State. It's going to be difficult to beat the Sun Devils, who have performed very well at home this year, knocking of Cal, UCLA and Texas Tech, and nearly beating No. 23 Washington State.

College Football Pick: Arizona State +6 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$330
West Virginia at Texas. Line: Texas by 2. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
I went against West Virginia a couple of weeks ago when they visited Oklahoma State as 4.5-point favorites. They were very overrated at the time, but that's still the case, though to a slightly lesser extent. The Mountaineers simply don't have any impressive victories this year, but they were ranked highly because they were unbeaten. Losers look at records, so it's no surprise that West Virginia lost to Oklahoma State and then had trouble distancing themselves from woeful Kansas. The Longhorns are playing better now, having covered four of five, and they should be able to win this game.

College Football Pick: Texas -2 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Pittsburgh at Clemson. Line: Clemson by 21. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
I was just a bit off when I selected Syracuse over Clemson last week. The Tigers won 54-0, but I feel like the Orange Men could've won outright! OK, maybe not, but Pittsburgh will have a chance. The Panthers' defense is horrible, but they have a dynamic offense and can stick with most teams. They nearly defeated Virginia Tech a couple of weeks ago, so I think they can stay within three touchdowns of a slightly overrated Clemson squad.
College Football Pick: Pittsburgh +21 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Auburn at Georgia. Line: Auburn by 10.5. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
I talked about Auburn being overrated last week. The Tigers don't really have a marquee victory under their belt, so it wasn't surprising to see them nearly drop a game to Vanderbilt. This could be a loss as well; Georgia has been competitive for the most part this season, as the team has just one loss by more than two touchdowns. The Bulldogs have beaten South Carolina and North Carolina, and was within one score of Tennessee and Vanderbilt.
College Football Pick: Georgia +10.5 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
USC at Washington. Line: Washington by 9. Saturday, 7:30 p.m.
I don't quite understand this line, but then again, I guess I should've expected it to be inflated because Washington is undefeated. I like the Huskies, but not as much as I did last week because they lost Joe Mathis, their top pass-rusher. That's going to be a huge issue in this game because Washington will be tasked to stop red-hot quarterback Sam Darnold. The Huskies still have tons of defensive talent, while USC has been unstoppable ever since Darnold took over the job. The Trojans should be able to keep this game close and perhaps even win outright.
