Women’s D-I picks: Nov. 6

Ties were the bane of me last week, but I still went a respectable 20-6-6, and am now 100-23-13 on the year. The WCHA and Hockey East are virtually dormant this weekend because of the Four Nations Cup, but there are still a lot of games.

Friday, Nov. 6

Dartmouth at Brown
Brown will win eventually, but I don’t think it happens this game. Dartmouth 3-1

Cornell at Princeton
The Big Red have scoring issues, and playing Kimberly Newell won’t help. Princeton 3-1

Colgate at Quinnipiac
The Bobcats were surprised by Yale last weekend, but I like them to right the ship. Quinnipiac 4-1

St. Lawrence at Rensselaer
Goals are still an issue for the Engineers, so I like the visitors. St. Lawrence 3-2

Clarkson at Union
I’m sure the Dutchwomen will hang around, but it won’t enough. Clarkson 3-1

Harvard at Yale
Home ice will keep the Elis close, but I think the Crimson win this. Harvard 3-2

Northeastern at Maine
Can the Huskies score without Kendall Coyne? Just enough. Northeastern 4-2

Friday-Saturday, Nov. 6

Syracuse at Lindenwood
My percentages would be even better if I didn’t pick CHA games. Syracuse 3-2, 2-1

Mercyhurst at Penn State
CHA play got the Lakers their first wins of the year, and that continues. Mercyhurst 2-1, 3-1

Robert Morris at RIT
I don’t think the Tigers are ready to make their annual surge just yet. Robert Morris 3-2, 3-1

Bemidji State at Ohio State
The Buckeyes bedeviled the Beavers last year, winning all four games. I think Bemidji turns it around. Bemidji State 3-1, 3-2

Saturday, Nov. 7

Harvard at Brown
The Crimson keep pace with the league leaders. Harvard 3-1

Colgate at Princeton
I think Princeton might not lose until it plays a team like Harvard. Princeton 3-2

Cornell at Quinnipiac
Cornell couldn’t beat Union, so I  don’t see the Big Red taking points on the road from the Bobcats. Quinnipiac 4-2

Clarkson at Rensselaer
The Golden Knights probably can’t wait to get back to Canton, but should have enough in the tank. Clarkson 3-1

St. Lawrence at Union
Another game that will be very close, but see Union fall short. St. Lawrence 2-1

Dartmouth at Yale
The Elis surprised last week against Quinnipiac, and I like them to take this one. Yale 2-1

Boston College at Boston University
The Terriers have shown signs of life of late, but BC Alex Carpenter and Haley Skarupa were left off the Team USA roster. Boston College 4-2

New Hampshire at Providence
I figure the Friars might finally get a win here, but there’s no percentage in picking it. New Hampshire 3-1

Merrimack at Connecticut
The Warriors will keep it close, but fall short. Connecticut 3-1

Sunday, Nov. 8

New Hampshire at Connecticut
The Huskies are looking to me like the final home ice team in Hockey East. Connecticut 3-1

Tuesday, Nov. 10

Boston University at Boston College
A change of venue won’t help the Terriers. Boston College 5-1

Syracuse at Clarkson
Home sweet home for the Golden Knights means a win. Clarkson 3-1

Maine at Dartmouth
The Big Green should be able to eke this one. Dartmouth 2-1
