Atlantic Hockey Picks Nov. 25-27

Last Week: 5-5-3
On the Season: 53-27-9 (.646)

This Week’s Picks:

Friday, Nov. 25
Rensselaer at Rochester Institute of Technology – The Tigers have never defeated the Engineers since moving to Division I and despite RPI’s record, I have a feeling they may break out of their slump. RPI 3, RIT 2.

Saturday, Nov. 26
Brown at Holy Cross – The Bears are playing their third straight game against AHA competition, and they’re 0-1-1 so far. I don’t think they get a win here, either. Holy Cross 3, Brown 2.  

Sunday, Nov. 26
Clarkson at Holy Cross – I think the Crusaders will have to settle for a weekend split with the ECAC. Clarkson 3, Holy Cross 2.

Friday Nov. 25 and Sunday, Nov. 26
Army at Robert Morris – The Colonials are coming off a bye weekend and I think they’ll be ready for a home sweep. RMU 4, Army 2; RMU 4, Army 3.

Niagara at Sacred Heart – The Pioneers pulled off a big win last week, upsetting No. 8 Yale. But I think the Purple Eagles get the road sweep. Niagara 4, Sacred Heart 3; Niagara 5, Sacred Heart 3.

Connecticut at Air Force – The Falcons are 12-1-1 all-time at home against the Huskies, and I like that trend to continue. Air Force 5, UConn 4; Air Force 3, UConn 2.

Mercyhurst at Wisconsin – The Lakers are getting great goaltending, and that means they have a chance to win against any team. But I think the Badgers find a way to win these games. Wisconsin 3, Mercyhurst 2; Wisconsin 4, Mercyhurst 3.

Saturday, Nov. 26 and Sunday, Nov. 27
Canisius at American International – Canisius is 9-0-1 against AIC in their last ten meetings, but I think an improved Yellow Jacket squad gets a split. Canisius 3, AIC 2; AIC 3, Canisius 1
