Clemson at Georgia Tech. Line: Clemson by 10. Thursday, 7:30 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.
Most people have short memories, so all people recall of Clemson is how the team dominated in the college playoff semifinal and then came close to beating Alabama. The truth of the matter is, the Tigers had some BS wins during their run and were fortunate to even make it into the playoffs. Thus, it's not a surprise that they couldn't cover against Auburn or Troy. Georgia Tech is a good team and should be able to keep this game close. I like the +10 we're getting at Bovada.

College Football Pick: Georgia Tech +10 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Wisconsin at Michigan State. Line: Michigan State by 5.5. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
The spread is dropping on this one despite action on the host, and I can't say I'm surprised. The public just saw the Spartans upset Notre Dame, but in reality, the Irish was the better team, but lost because of numerous coaching blunders. These teams are closer than 5.5 points, and Michigan State could be in a bit of a letdown following such a monumental victory.

College Football Pick: Wisconsin +5.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Pittsburgh at North Carolina. Line: North Carolina by 7. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
I still don't understand how Pittsburgh didn't cover last week. But I'm going with the Panthers again, as I think they have a great matchup advantage against the Tar Heels, who absolutely cannot stop the run. Pittsburgh will gash them with the fully recovered James Connor, so I think it'll be able to hang this number, which, by the way, has been bet down via sharp action (opened +8).
College Football Pick: Pittsburgh +7 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
Florida at Tennessee. Line: Tennessee by 6.5. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
This spread confused me for a second until I remembered that Florida quarterback Luke Del Rio is out for this game. And you know what? I don't care. Tennessee is a garbage team whose sole spread victory has been the result of fluky turnovers. The Vols lost to Appalachian State and barely beat Ohio, while the Gators sport one of the top defenses in the country. Florida could easily win outright.
College Football Pick: Florida +6.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Louisville at Marshall. Line: Louisville by 26.5. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
Several years ago, when Jameis Winston led Florida State to a national title, I recall betting the Seminoles at every opportunity, no matter how high the spread was. I member winning most of those wagers. Oh, I member. Florida State was just way better than everyone, and the opposition simply couldn't compete. It feels like the same thing is happening here, as Louisville has demolished everyone in its path. It has beaten all three opponents - all 1-A teams - by at least 34, so this number feels low.
