Women’s D-I picks: Nov. 13

I had a decent week again, going 20-5-4 (.758) to move to 120-28-17 (.778) on the year. Let’s see how we can do this week with some big games on tap out west.

Friday, Nov. 13

Rensselaer at Dartmouth
Two teams that are very hard to predict makes me lean toward home ice. Dartmouth 3-2

Union at Harvard
The Crimson looked to have shaken off the loss to Dartmouth, which means bad news for Union. Harvard 5-1

Friday-Saturday, Nov. 13-14

Princeton vs. Quinnipiac (home-and-home)
I’m not completely sold on the Tigers yet, thought Quinnipiac has looked vulnerable of late. Let’s go with home ice for each. Quinnipiac 4-2, Princeton 3-2

Lindenwood at Mercyhurst
A Lions win in at least one game wouldn’t surprise me, but I’ll go traditional this time. Mercyhurst 4-2, 2-1

Penn State at Robert Morris
The Colonials seem to have a bit of swagger again. Robert Morris 3-1, 4-1

Boston College vs. New Hampshire (home-and-home)
The Eagles escaped the trap game against Boston University and should win going away. Boston College 5-1, 4-1

Merrimack vs. Northeastern (home-and-home)
Kendall Coyne and company should skate to an easy win. Northeastern 5-1, 5-1

Minnesota State at St. Cloud State
Perhaps the Mavericks get their first conference win this weekend. St. Cloud 3-2, Minnesota State 2-1

Wisconsin at Minnesota-Duluth
The Bulldogs would be happy to break Wisconsin’s shutout streak. Wisconsin 4-0, 3-1

Bemidji State at Minnesota
The Gophers won’t take the Beavers lightly, and will use home ice to erase the memory of two painful losses last year. Minnesota 4-1, 4-2

Saturday, Nov. 14

Union at Dartmouth
The Big Green keep pace in the ECAC. Dartmouth 2-1

Rensselaer at Harvard
The Engineers have played the Crimson tough before, but I like Harvard in this one. Harvard 4-2

Saturday-Sunday, Nov. 14-15

Maine at Boston University
If the Terriers who played Tuesday come out, they should win easily. If they are still down after losing in OT, it could get interesting. Boston University 4-1, 4-1

Ohio State at North Dakota
UND needs both of these games to stay with Bemidji. I think they take them. North Dakota 4-2, 3-2

Tuesday, Nov. 17

Colgate at Cornell
Do the Big Red finally get untracked a little? Cornell 2-1

Wednesday, Nov. 18

Syracuse at RIT
The Tigers should keep this game closer than last month’s blowout loss, but get the same result. Syracuse, 4-2

New Hampshire at Harvard
Gone are the days when this would be a battle to the end. Harvard 4-1
