By the way, the fourth-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.
UCLA at Oregon Line: Oregon by 31.5. Friday, 8:00 p.m.
As a disclaimer, don't go nuts with my college football picks. I'm much better at picking NFL games (though not this year); I'm just doing these upon request. Follow @walterfootball for updates.
UCLA lost 50-0 last week, which has definitely inflated this spread. The Bruins have absolutely nothing to lose, while some meaningless Nike Rose Bowl game could be on the line for Oregon.
College Football Pick: UCLA +31.5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
Iowa State at Kansas State Line: Kansas State by 10.5. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
This is a pretty tough spot for Kansas State; being favored after two consecutive underdog wins is a different dynamic.
College Football Pick: Iowa State +10.5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
UNLV at TCU Line: TCU by 38.5. Saturday, 2:30 p.m.
UNLV is a crap team. TCU should win this one very easily.
College Football Pick: TCU -38.5 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
LSU at Georgia Line: LSU by 13. Saturday, 4:00 p.m.
I thought LSU's trap game would come last week, and that looked to be the case when they trailed 14-0. But if Arkansas couldn't beat them, how can Georgia? The Bulldogs are in the SEC Championship because they haven't played the big guns in the conference. LSU should win this easily and advance to the co-national championship, assuming Houston takes care of business against Southern Miss.
College Football Pick: LSU -13 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
Oklahoma at Oklahoma State Line: Oklahoma State by 3.5. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
Oklahoma State just had its co-national championship hopes ruined. I don't see how they bounce back from that.
College Football Pick: Oklahoma +3.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Walter your inability to bet the Patriots all year with Brady on the team is inexplicable. Yes, since Brady came back from suspension, you bet the Patriots 0 times, even though they covered as decent and often huge favorites. Why? Why are you more afraid than Goodell is to show up at Foxborough to bet on a great team to beat inferior oponents by a large margin? You lost out on a lot of money. As for the Patriots defense who will be "overwhelmed" by Pittsburgh hahaha, the Patriots defense has stepped up when it needed to. Logan Ryan who is not even the best DB let alone CB on the team just had a dominant game covering one of the best wide receivers in the league. And you're going to say that Brady can't go stride for stride against Big Ben who, with his 0 TD performance last Sunday, once again proved that he has turned into an awful road playoff QB? You know what 0 TDs will win you in the AFC Championship game? I don't believe that betting on Pitt getting 6 points is a bad decision - seeing as I may do the same. But to predict the Patriots to straight up lose is laughable. The advantage they have on defense and coaching is pretty big and they may even be even offensively solely because Brady has been using Edelman more and more and Dion Lewis's return has shown to be very important.
