Ten of the 52 games this weekend are played before Saturday. Want them picked? You can find that anywhere. Want them picked against the spread? Now that is a little more tricky!

In case you don’t know what I do here, I pick every college football game of the season. Against the spread. Trust me, it’s not as easy as it sounds! I take the average of the odds from all of the Vegas casinos. I then round to the nearest half. There will be no ties here. Ties are for the other football (soccer).

In case you missed how the point scale works, here is a brief rundown:

5. A lock. I am comfortable making a sizable wager on this game.

4. Very confident. Not quite a lock, but I am comfortable making a decent sized wager on it.

3. Middle of the road. Good enough that I would make a small wager on it.

2. Could go either way. So much so that I wouldn’t bet on it.

1. Stay away from these.

Take note that any games that involve 1-AA teams will NOT be picked. There simply is not enough information to get an accurate spread.

There was no Tuesday game this week due to the start of the 2015 World Series. Oh well, it just gives me more time to get my picks out!

I had a pretty good week last week, bringing my season totals to 212-207 against the spread and +1 in my points system. Here are my college football picks against the spread October 29-30!

North Carolina(-2.5) at (23)Pittsburgh(2): I still like Pitt straight up at home. Their defense is good enough to keep Marquise Williams in check. That is why I didn’t recommend him in my FanDuel picks!

West Virginia at (5)TCU(-14.5)(3): TCU has given up their share of yards and points this season, and West Virginia’s offense has been known to move the ball pretty well. That said, Oklahoma and Baylor had no problems covering the Mountaineers. I don’t really think TCU will either. Give me the Horny Toads.

Western Michigan(-20.5) at Eastern Michigan(4): The strength of the Broncos is their two-headed rushing attack. The Eagles are the worst team in FBS defending the run. The Broncos shouldn’t have any trouble here.

Buffalo(-7.5) at Miami(OH)(2): I’m not really sure why this line is falling. Maybe it’s because of the awful inconsistency of the Bulls. But I will take awful inconsistency over consistently awful anytime. Give me Buffalo.

Texas State at Georgia Southern(-20.5)(3): I am glad to get in on this line while it is under 21. It likely won’t be for long. Give me Georgia Southern since the Bobcats still can’t stop the run.

Oregon at Arizona State(-2.5)(3): Something has gone on out west with very little fanfare. Oregon WR Darren Carrington returned from a six game suspension. He was arguably their best receiver last year, and he picked up right where he left off last week. Oregon straight up. They have the much needed receiving threat back in their offense.

Louisville(-11.5) at Wake Forest(2): The Deacons have bordered on lousy lately. I have to go with Louisville.

East Carolina(-7.5) at Connecticut(3): The Huskies defense got gouged last week by Cincinnati. There is a good chance that Blake Kemp and ECU can do the same thing here. I’m taking the Pirates.

Louisiana Tech(-12.5) at Rice(4): This line is steadily rising, and it should be. The Bulldogs are the class of Conference USA when it comes to offense. Rice really can’t stop them.

Wyoming at Utah State(-27.5)(1): Utah State will win, but I am not all that confident they will win by that much. Give me the Aggies, but I am only putting one point on it.

Stay tuned for Saturday FanDuel picks and the rest of the picks against the spread!
