NCHC Championship picks: March 17

Matthew and I went 1-1 (.500) yesterday, so on the year I am 104-62-23 (.611), while Matthew is 98-68-23 (.579).

It’s game time, so here are my picks for today.

Saturday, Nov. 17

North Dakota versus Minnesota Duluth
Neither team can afford to lose, though that’s the more the case for North Dakota than Duluth. The Hawks have usually played better on Saturday, but the Bulldogs have the edge in the rivalry of late. Minnesota Duluth 3-1

Denver versus St. Cloud State
These two have been the top two teams in the conference for a reason, and this should be a barn-burner of a game. Denver won two in Denver in November, while the two had a tie and St. Cloud win last month. I lean toward the Huskies. St. Cloud State 3-2
