We pick the winners of the weekend’s biggest matchups. Home team in ALL CAPS.
Saturday: WATCHMEN over Critics. Yes, it’s quite long, checking in at over 2 and a half hours, and it’s no Dark Knight. But bottom line–it’s a very good movie. And all the fanboy nerds have gone to see it at this point, so you won’t have to battle some fatass for an armrest.
UCONN (+4) over Pittsburgh. Payback is a real mother.
MANCHESTER UNITED (-0.5) over Fulham. This pick is the epitome of brand recognition, I’d say. I know nothing about either team.
Colorado (+17) over KANSAS STATE. Wanted to take big points for one pick; Tulane actually is getting 25 against Memphis. The downside there is pretty obvious.
LE MANS (+0.5) over Nancy. Yes, apparently, there is a team in French Ligue 1 named “Nancy.” Is their archrival named “Bruce?”
DAYTON (-6) over Duquense. Dayton might be the mid-majors’ ‘it’ team right now.
SUNDAY: Suns over SPURS (no line yet). The Suns seem reinvigorated after their coaching change. Plus I want all of the Spurs to fall down a well and die.
