Women’s D-I picks: Dec. 10

I had a terrible week last week, going 15-12-5 (.546), I think possibly my worst performance ever. The ECAC and WCHA killed me. On the year, I am 196-60-26 (.741), still good odds for Vegas.

Let’s see if I can close strong.

Thursday, Dec. 10

Boston College at Syracuse
This will be closer than last year’s blowout, but the same result. Boston College 4-1

Friday, Dec. 11

Merrimack at Providence
The Friars close strong. Providence 4-1

New Hampshire at Quinnipiac
A possible trap game, as the Wildcats have been hot, but the smaller cats win. Quinnipiac 3-1

Minnesota at St. Cloud State
This will be closer than the blowouts back in October, but again, same result. Minnesota 4-2

Friday-Saturday, Dec. 11-12

Minnesota-Duluth at Ohio State
Two very inconsistent teams, but I like the way the Bulldogs have played the last few weeks. Minnesota-Duluth 3-2, 3-1

Wisconsin at North Dakota
While the Fighting Hawks have done well against Minnesota in recent years, they’ve faired poorly against the Badgers. Wisconsin 3-1, 4-0

Penn State at Princeton
The Tigers maintain the momentum from last week. Maybe they’ll even win by more than one goal again. Princeton 3-1, 3-2

Union at Maine
I figure Union is due for a win at some point. Maine 3-2, Union 2-1

Saturday, Dec. 12

Vermont at Dartmouth
The Big Green have not been the same since Wisconsin, but I like them to finally get a win. Dartmouth 2-1

Saturday-Sunday, Dec. 12-13

Robert Morris at Lindenwood
The Lions could pass the Colonials in the standings with a series win, but I see Robert Morris getting back on track. Robert Morris 2-1, 3-1

Sunday, Dec. 13

Yale at New Hampshire
This might be the hardest game to pick all weekend. Yale is better than its record, but New Hampshire has been hot. New Hampshire 2-1
