By the way, the third-annual Walter/Joker Annual Challenge is on, as I'll be competing with the Joker's College Picks. We each pick five games and see who does the best each week.
Purdue (4-2) at Ohio State (6-1) Line: Ohio State by 24. Saturday, 12:00 ET
Wisconsin just beat up Ohio State. The Buckeyes' national title hopes are over, and they have nothing to play for. Purdue, meanwhile, has won two in a row. This is the biggest game of the Boilermakers' season, and I expect them to cover.
Arizona State (3-3) at California (3-3) Line: California by 3. Saturday, 3:30 ET
This is a tough spot for Cal. They're coming off a tough loss to USC and could be flat against an Arizona State squad that has had two weeks to prepare for this contest.
Prediction: Arizona State 27, California 21 Arizona State +3 (4 Units) -- Incorrect; -$440
Oklahoma (6-0) at Missouri (6-0) Line: Oklahoma by 3. Saturday, 8:00 ET
Can someone tell me why Oklahoma is first in the BCS poll? Didn't they nearly lose to Cincinnati and Air Force? The Sooners are a bit of a fraud, and I think they'll get hammered at Missouri this Saturday. The Tigers are coming off a win on the road and are now underdogs under the lights with the Game Day crew on site. That's usually a recipe for success.
