Streaking through the weekend

Current Streak: Won 3

Longest Win Streak: 3

Wins This Month: 3

Overall Picks: 3-2-1 (.600)

Now, this is a little more like it! Starting to make some progress here. Thursday I ended up breaking even at 1-1-1. Golf got cancelled due to bad weather (counts as a push), Penn State basketball managed to draw my ire twice in a 72 hour span by beating Baylor. However, Melo and the Nuggets managed to redeem my day by holding off the Jazz 114-104. I ended up making one pick on Friday and took the Spurs over the Pacers. San Antonio held Granger and crew off in a 126-121 barn burner. I ended up not making any picks on Saturday. That ended up being a good thing, since I was high on both 'Nova and UConn. Sunday, I was back on the NBA beat and took the Pacers to beat OKC, which ended up with another win for me to the tune of 117-99.

Here's today's matchups. Since it is Opening Day, there's a lot of baseball on the slate, as well as soccer and hockey. There's some basketball game you may have heard of as well, but I'm staying away from that one. I think UNC is going to win, but I would rather Sparty pull off the upset. Going to pick a baseball game and a hockey game, instead.

I'm taking the Mets over the Reds since the Reds are young and talented but still suck. Good chance this game doesn't get played because of the lousy weather we here in the Midwest are being subjected to (White Sox already had to push today's opener back to tomorrow due to snow).

Then later on, I'm taking the Dead Wings over the Sabres. Picking this one based off of records alone (Detroit: 50-19-9; Buffalo: 38-31-9). However, Buffalo still has an outside shot at the playoffs and Detroit is shooting for the Presidents' Trophy, which they trail San Jose (by 6) and Boston (by 4) with 4 games remaining. Probably not going to happen, but both sides having a stake in something should make for an intense game.

Stay warm, kids. Should be an exciting night!
