PODCAST: Weekend Picks Panel - Week 1 Against The Spread

By Chip Patterson | College Football/Basketball Writer

Each week, I will be joined a group of writers, bloggers, experts and non-experts alike, to make predictions for every game in the Top 25. Each panelist will give their prediction for the game's outcome, and also the result against-the-spread.

With the arrival of a new season comes a new feature on the podcast: The Weekend Picks Panel. This week I am joined by our own Bruce Feldman, Jerry Hinnen, and Tom Fornelli to take a wagerer's look at the college football slate. In addition to the game picks listed below, we break down a potential 90-point over/under in Oregon-Arkansas State, the most terrifying point spreads on the board, and why West Virginia should not take Marshall lightly.
