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

Week 4's Weekend Picks Panel features the two leaders in the CBSSports.com Expert Picks, with Dennis Dodd - the 2011 ATS champ - leading us off. Week 4 features more trap spreads for Top 25 teams with favorites potentially laying a duck as they look ahead to conference play. Dennis handles most of our headliners in the first segment, Tom predicts the spread (and over/under) of the track meet between Oregon and Arizona, and Jerry tackles the increasingly volatile Oregon State - UCLA line.

As always - thanks to the panelists. Be sure to follow them on Twitter and let them know what you think of the picks. Check the contents below for specific game breakdowns.
