Enough! Enough with picking the wrong teams! Enough, I say!
I’m going to guarantee a double digit win rate this week. I’m going to guarantee this for three different reasons:
1. I’m not an idiot (at least I’m trying to prove that to myself)
2. I think some of the match-ups this week place weaker teams playing some of the top teams. This should make picks easier.
3. I’m due for a lucky streak. Ahhhhh, always the last thing one says before you put it all on black.
Well, here we go:
Tonight’s contest is probably the hardest of the week night games. I’m going to go with the Hoyas. I know I keep picking against the Cards and they keep winning. Well, I see a change this evening and I think Georgetown will vault itself back into the Big East’s elite group with a victory this evening.
Providence got beat on the road this weekend against Seton Hall, but upon their return trip home, the Friars will get it done against the Bulls.
UConn hosts Syracuse in a classic Big East tilt. I’ll go with the Huskies here against the struggling Orange. Cuse fans, I think I’ve picked the Orange in every game over the past two weeks. Perhaps that’ll cheer you up in anticipation of this one.
Villanova gets back on track at home against Marquette. The Golden Eagles don’t seem nearly as scary on the road and I can see an easy win for the Cats.
West Virginia will win this one on Tuesday evening against Seton Hall. These two teams are two fighting for that 11th NCAA bid from our conference and this win for the Mountaineers could go a long way come Selection Sunday.
St. John’s notched perhaps the conference’s biggest win on Sunday against Duke. I think they’ll continue their success at home against Rutgers. By the way, was anyone else watching the Red Storm dismantle Duke this weekend? Hopefully you got to see them in action, because it was probably the Red Storms most impressive game of the year.
Notre Dame should crush winless DePaul. Again, why is DePaul in this league? There’s so many other options that would boost basketball and football for the conference. Example – the University of Central Florida. Good football school, more Big East expansion into the Sunshine S, a recruiting hotbed, tate, and of course, two brothers named Jordan. Just sayin’.
