Weekend Picks: Feb. 26

Thank you Denver! The Pioneers’ sweep of Colorado College put me five up on Matthew in our picks race. Last week, I went 6-2 (.750), moving to 101-47-14 (.667), while Matthew went 5-3 (.625) to move to 96-52-14 (.635).

Friday-Saturday 2-26-27

Colorado College at Miami
Candace: Miami got swept in Colorado Springs back in December, completing a horrible run, so I think they get two back here. Miami 3-1, 3-2
Matthew: This would’ve been a tougher series to pick a few weeks ago before Miami really got moving. Now, I have the RedHawks taking all six points. Miami 3-1, 3-1

Minnesota-Duluth at No. 3 St. Cloud State
Candace: I’m not sure I’m willing to bet against St. Cloud right now. St. Cloud 3-2, 3-1
Matthew: Duluth played well last weekend but got swept. I’ll go out on a limb and say that doesn’t happen again this week. Minnesota-Duluth 3-2, St. Cloud State 4-2

No. 4 North Dakota at No. 13 Omaha
Candace: Omaha will be motivated, but that hasn’t always been enough for them of late. North Dakota 3-2, 3-1
Matthew: These are must-have points for UNO, but I’m not sure how many the Mavericks get. Omaha 3-2, North Dakota 3-1

No. 8 Denver at Western Michigan
Candace: I think Denver will remember how difficult it was to beat Western in January at Magness and come out flying. Denver 3-2, 4-2
Matthew: Tough to pick against the Pioneers with the way they’ve been playing lately. Denver 3-2, 3-2
