Weekend picks: Dec. 16

Neither Matthew or I did well last weekend, since we picked the wrong days for splits, but I did gain another game thanks to North Dakota winning on Friday against Western Michigan. Last week, I went 3-4-1 (.437), while Matthew went 2-5-1. On the year, I am 50-33-15 (.586) while Matthew is 41-42-15 (.494).

One last series before the break, so let’s go.

Friday-Saturday, Dec. 16-17

No. 1 Minnesota-Duluth vs. No. 15 Bemidji State (home-and-home)
Candace: I was very impressed by what I saw of the Bulldogs last weekend against Denver. As long as they avoid a letdown after such an emotional conference series, I like them to sweep. Minnesota-Duluth 3-1, 3-2
Matthew: UMD hasn’t beaten Bemidji since December of 2012, and that has to change sometime. The Beavers have looked really good so far, but I think they might get a split at best here. I’ll take the home teams. Minnesota-Duluth 3-1, Bemidji State 3-2
