Next week, PUNTE will be covering the World Series Of Poker from Las Vegas. But at the end of each week, we pick the winners to the weekend’s hottest matchups. We call it “Weekend Picks.” For those asking, lines for today’s picks can be found on Belmont.com. Home teams are listed in ALL CAPS.
Tonight: REDS -1.5 over Indians. Aaron Harang has struggled and Aaron Laffey has struggled. I’m going with the home team, in large part because the other team is the Cleveland Indians.
Saturday: Clemson over South Carolina. It’s a Palmetto State battle in Omaha. I enjoy how the game has been moved from the middle of nowhere to the middle of nowhere. Ping!
USA over Ghana. Token homer pick. But if USA lose, at least I won’t have to fight for a seat in bars on weekday mornings anymore.
Sunday: Germany over England. Where’s your precious Winston Churchill now?
