February 7th, 2009 Picks

Much better yesterday, went 6-2-1 with Villegas, Dartmouth, Buffalo, Jamison, Dallas, and Jackson all winning. Canisius and Chris Henry lost, while Hertha Berlin tied Arminia Bielefeld. That brings my overall total to 17-17-1. Today looks like a major day with the possibility for as many as six(!) picks, if the college basketball games finish quickly. Well, on to the picks!

1) Fulham win or draw @ Wigan Athletic win – Wigan Athletic
2) France @ Ireland – France
3) Luke Donald vs. Camilo Villegas – Villegas gets a lower 3rd round score
4) Texas Longhorns @ Nebraska Cornhuskers – Texas
5) Southern Illinois Salukis @ Missouri State Bears – Southern Illinois
6) Northwestern Wildcats @ Iowa Hawkeyes – Iowa
7) Connecticut vs. Davidson – Connecticut has larger margin of victory
8) Buffalo @ Ottawa – Buffalo
9) Butler Bulldogs @ Wright State Raiders – Butler
10) Colorado @ St. Louis – Colorado
11) Memphis Tigers @ Gonzaga Bulldogs – Gonzaga
12) Mac Danzig vs. Josh Neer – Josh Neer
13) Chicago @ Vancouver – Chicago
14) Pacific Tigers @ Long Beach State 49ers – Long Beach State

I’m picking Wigan Athletic since Fulham has only scored 3 goals in 11 road games. The tie is a danger, but I don’t think they have it in them to pull off another 0-0 tie.

France is the underdog against Ireland, but Ireland has had trouble with France lately.

I like Villegas to win again in golf, Donald has had rounds of -3 and -2 while Villegas has had rounds of -9 and -2. Villegas is the lead horse, so why switch?

Texas @ Nebraska should be a close matchup, though most of the sports books have Texas as a 3-4.5 point favorite.

Southern Illinois has already beaten Missouri State, and they’ve played well against the top teams in the conference.

Iowa has a 10-2 home record while Northwestern has a 2-5 road record.

Connecticut is playing a Michigan team that has been giving up 18 point losses lately; Charleston lost to Davidson by 4 last time they played this season.

Buffalo is hot lately, plus Ottawa has a worse record.

Butler and Wright State are rivals, with Wright State playing some great games against Butler and beating them. Still, Butler hasn’t gotten to where they are by not being good on the road.

Picking Colorado since they seem to be nearly unbeatable lately.

I like Gonzaga to defend their home.

Josh Neer has been winning more fights than Danzig lately.

The Blackhawks have had Vancouvers number this season.

Long Beach State is favored in the sports books, they’re at home, and they’ve already beaten Pacific on the road this season.
