At the end of each week, we pick the winners to the hottest matchups of the weekend. We call it Weekend Picks. Home teams are in ALL CAPS, and lines are provided where available.
Tonight: Alexis over FIELD. With Leather is participating in this Captain Morgan 2011 BracketMaster Challenge, presented by Spike.com. Alexis is our champion in this thing, so vote early and often for her in the North region, and enjoy a short video on her after the jump. Click her image to embiggen.
Sophomores -6 over Rookies. NBA All-Star Weekend kicks off in LA tonight with the celeb game at 7 ET (ESPN) and the “Rookie Challenge” at 9 ET. And if you’re looking for a good time, the over/under is 254. Of course I’m taking the over.
Saturday: NORTH CAROLINA over Boston College. No lines on these games yet. I also like OREGON over Oregon State, but that’s only because of Oregon’s goofy floor. Plus, MICHIGAN STATE over Illinois.
Sunday: PURDUE over Ohio State. Please, somebody just lose. I’m ready for March.
COLD over Hockey. The NHL is having another outdoor game this weekend. What’s funny (to me) is that it’s in Calgary and the expected gametime weather is 5 degrees. That’s Fahrenheit. Hopefully, it’ll be a little warmer wherever you are this weekend.
