At the end of each week, we pick the winners of the weekend’s simulatingest matchups. We call it “Weekend Picks.” Home teams are in ALL CAPS.
Tonight: Belmont -19 over USC UPSTATE. Quick notes about USC Upstate: They’re 2-15 and they shoot 37 percent from the field. Belmont could walk off the floor with ten minutes left and USC-U still couldn’t get to 50.
Raptors +12 over MAGIC. Orlando’s last six games have been decided by 10 points or less, and two of those games went to OT. And even though the over/under is a whopping 206.5, I’d still be inclined to take the over.
Tomorrow: Wigan +2 over ARSENAL. These teams met in the Carling Cup November 30, and Arsenal managed a 2-0 result there. They met again a month later for a 2-2 draw. Expect something in between those results tomorrow morning.
Ohio State over ILLINOIS. Homer pick. I wish these damn betting sites would get their acts together and get the lines out on their college hoops already.
Sunday: Packers -3.5 over BEARS. The Aaron Rodgers death march continues. For more Jaime Edmondson, check out her SFW spread on Playboy.
STEELERS -3.5 over Jets. Rex Ryan finally shuts up.
