WEEKEND PICKS: LIMA TIME

03.20.09 10 years ago 10 Comments

Every weekend we pick the winners to the weekend’s hottest matchups. And then maybe one or two others. Home team in ALL CAPS.

Friday: Utah (-1) over Arizona. A lot of people are wondering how Arizona got into the tournament. I am one of them.

Boston College (+2.5) over Southern Cal. Bill Simmons has BC in his Final Four! What a level-headed choice!

Xavier (-10.5) over Portland State. I have Xavier in my Sweet Sixteen, which means they’ll probably lose.

Saturday (no lines): Western Kentucky over Gonzaga. Is there anyone that likes Gonzaga? No? Didn’t think so.

UCLA over Villanova. No insight here; this is a pure brand recognition pick.

Purdue over Washington Another Big Ten-Pac 10 matchup that nobody cares about.

Sunday: Japan over UNITED STATES. Someday we’ll care about international baseball, when it’s not preseason baseball played in different laundry.
