Colorado State vs. Idaho.
Line: Colorado State by 15.

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.

This number seems a bit too high to me, as Idaho should be able to stay within two touchdowns. The Vandals have improved defensively as the year has progressed, so they should be able to handle Colorado State's one-dimensional offense. The Rams are 9-2 against the spread all year, but they've been favored by double digits just once. I don't like them in this role, so I'm taking the points.

College Football Pick: Idaho +15 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200









Eastern Michigan vs. Old Dominion.
Line: Old Dominion by 4.

Friday, 1:00 p.m.

Both teams are pretty skilled offensively, so the major difference figures to be Old Dominion's defense. The Monarchs have a strong defensive line that should be able to control the trenches and force Eastern Michigan into some turnovers, which has been an issue for them at times this season.

Miami of Ohio vs. Mississippi State.
Line: Mississippi State by 14.

Monday, 11:00 a.m.

It's an absolute disgrace that Mississippi State is in a bowl game. They're 5-7! I don't even think 6-6 teams should be allowed in bowl games, so having a 5-7 squad participate in one of these is emblematic of how stupid and meaningless bowls are. Anyway, I like Miami of Ohio here, as they'll actually be happy to be participating in this contest. Mississippi State, meanwhile, will be eager to close out its failure of a season. The Bulldogs, by the way, have been favored by double digits twice this year. In those affairs, they've lost outright to South Alabama and barely squeaked by UMass. Does that sound like a bowl-worthy team to you?

College Football Pick: Miami of Ohio +14 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300






Wake Forest vs. Temple.
Line: Temple by 11.5.

Tuesday, 3:30 p.m.

I can't say I'm surprised to see tons of sharp action coming in on Wake Forest. The general public has heard about the 12 consecutive games Temple has covered and is eagerly willing to bet on them in this matchup. However, Wake Forest has a great defense and should be able to keep this game close. Also, former Temple head coach Matt Rhule took the Baylor job, and he disgracefully is not coaching this bowl game. That could hurt the Owls.

College Football Pick: Wake Forest +11.5 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300






Kansas State vs. Texas A&M.
Line: Texas A&M by 2.

Wednesday, 9:00 p.m.

Once upon a time, Texas A&M had some high hopes. The Aggies were ranked as high as No. 6, and they thought they had a legitimate chance to upset Alabama. Things have unraveled, however, and now they're playing in some crappy Advocare V100 Texas Bowl against Kansas State. I can't see the motivation being there for Texas A&M. The Wildcats, meanwhile, have a strong running game to exploit the Aggies' weakness against the rush.

Follow me @walterfootball to see if anything changes.

College Football Pick: Kansas State +2 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
