NCHC picks: Nov. 25

My picking Minnesota-Duluth sweeps has been working out nicely in my contest with Matthew. I gained another game on him in our picks contest, going 4-1-3 (.687) while Matthew went 3-2-3 (.562). On the year, I am 38-25-10 (.589), while Matthew is 32-31-10 (.506).It’s not a busy weekend, but let’s see how we can do.Friday, Nov. 25No. 2 Denver at Air ForceCandace: I think Denver will get a close win here in a game that I think everyone thought would be previewed last month at the IceBreaker, but wasn’t to be. Denver 3-1Matthew: Air Force hasn’t been an easy team for anyone to beat this year, but I like the Pioneers to steal a win on the road here. Denver 3-2Wisconsin at Colorado CollegeCandace: CC is winless at home so far. Watch them get it here, but I’m not picking it. Wisconsin 3-2Matthew: This one might be too tough of an out for CC to make. I’ll take the Badgers. Wisconsin 4-2Friday-Saturday, Nov. 25-26Omaha at Northern MichiganCandace: Northern Michigan hasn’t done very well so far, and I think Omaha can win both as a result. Omaha 3-2, 4-2Matthew: For as much as results haven’t gone Omaha’s way at home so far this season, the Mavericks have been great on the road. That will continue this weekend. Omaha 4-2, 4-2Michigan State at No. 5 North DakotaCandace: I think North Dakota was playing better than people thought when they went without a win in six games, and the Hawks should build on last weekend’s success. North Dakota 4-2, 4-1Matthew: UND is coming off of a huge road sweep against St. Cloud State. I see the Hawks continuing to build momentum before their schedule becomes tougher again. North Dakota 4-2, 3-1Saturday, Nov. 26Wisconsin at DenverCandace: Wisconsin has shown improvement, but I think Denver will get the win in a tight one. Denver 3-2Matthew: Maybe the game of the weekend for NCHC teams playing over Thanksgiving. This might end in a tie but we can’t pick those, so I’ll take Denver to edge it. Denver 3-2Air Force at Colorado CollegeCandace: I might as well pick against Matthew in one game. Air Force 3-2Matthew: I think this will be a really tight game. League homer pick time. Colorado College 3-2
