NCHC picks: Dec. 19

Matthew gained another game on me last week, though neither of us lit the world on fire, as I went 3-4-1 (.437) and Matthew went 4-3-1 (.562). On the year, I am 60-29-5 (.664) while Matthew is 56-33-5 (.622). We’ll go into the break with me holding a four game lead, as we see this week’s lone series identically.
Saturday-Sunday, Dec. 20-21
Alabama-Huntsville at No. 12 Omaha
Candace: Huntsville has gotten better since getting swept by Colorado College to start the year, but I have to like the Mavericks at home. Omaha 4-2, 4-1
Matthew: UAH is clearly a better team than it was a year ago and the Chargers tend to give UNO fits whenever the two teams meet, but the gulf in class here is wide enough that I can’t see anything other than a sweep for UNO. Omaha 4-1, 3-1
