Weekend picks: Feb. 5

Well, thanks to correctly picking Miami to beat Denver Friday, Matthew gained a game back on me. I still hold a lead as we go into the home stretch of the season. Last week, I went 5-3 (.625) to move to 89-42-14 (.662), while Matthew went 6-2 (.750) to move to 85-46-14 (.634).

We’re light on action this week, so let’s see how we do.

Friday-Saturday, Feb. 5-6

No. 3 St. Cloud State at Miami
Candace: Miami hurt me last week by beating Denver, but I think St. Cloud is a better team than Denver. St. Cloud 4-2, 4-1
Matthew: The RedHawks have been hot lately, but I have a feeling SCSU goes into Oxford and shows why it’s at the top of the league standings. St. Cloud State 3-1, 3-1

Colorado College at Minnesota-Duluth
Candace: Minnesota-Duluth has been struggling of late, especially on Fridays, and Colorado College is playing much better, but maybe home ice will help. Minnesota-Duluth 2-1, 3-2
Matthew: I like CC to steal one of these games, but I’m not sure which one they’ll get. Colorado College 3-2, Minnesota-Duluth 3-1
