ECAC West Weekly Picks, Nov. 11-12

My picks for last week started out bad, missing both games on Friday night.  But I was perfect on Saturday and Sunday to earn a respectable weekend performance.
This week’s games are even harder to pick, as three of the games are within the league and could easily go either way.  Time to flip a coin.
Last Week:  4-2
Overall:  4-2 (.667)
{predicted winners bolded}
Friday, November 11
Neumann at Hobart – No one works harder than the Statesmen, but Neumann is chomping at the bit to get into league play.
Westfield State at Utica – The Pioneers should be able to roll over Westfield State in front of a very friendly crowd.
Saturday, November 12
Utica at Hobart – Unfortunately for the Statesmen, Utica follows up on Saturday to ruin the weekend for Hobart.
Neumann at Elmira – “It is a huge game,” said Elmira coach Aaron Saul.  “Neumann is the best team in our league on paper.  They have everybody coming back.  It is our first home ice for a league game, and we’re excited.”  Elmira should get a surge out of its home opener.
