Predictions - 1 Feb

My Super Bowl Pick


Seattle 24, New England 20

No team has repeated as Super Bowl Champs since the Patriots did it a decade ago, which is also the last time New England won a Super Bowl. The picks below are what my formula says will happen, but my feeling is that the Seahawks will be able to overcome Brady and Gronk with their league-leading defense. As soon as he takes his first snap, Tom Brady will become the first QB ever to start 6 Super Bowls, and if Seattle wins, Russell Wilson will become the youngest QB ever with 2 Super Bowl wins, breaking a record currently held by Tom Brady.

Upset picks are in italics.

Pick of the Day

Dayton

The Flyers are hosting Fordham early this afternoon, and though they've lost two straight on the road, they are undefeated at home this season. The Rams, meanwhile, have not won a conference game yet.

NBA Rankings - 31 Jan

The Golden State Warriors have lost 2 in a row, yet still managed to remain ahead of Atlanta, winners of 18 straight, in the weekly rankings. The Warriors were about 4.5 points better than Atlanta a week ago, but that advantage is now closer to 2.5, and though Atlanta is hotter right now and has a better overall record, Golden State still has the advantage in strength of schedule and margin of victory. How much longer can they hold off the Hawks?

Memphis has moved into the top 5 after winning 5 in a row and 9 of its past 10. This week they played 3 home games against far inferior competition, all big wins, but they also won big on the road at Dallas, which is the team they have replaced at #4. This week's only game against a team that is projected to make the playoffs is Monday at Phoenix.

Milwaukee moved into the top 10 this week, joining Atlanta and Toronto as the only Eastern Conference teams near the top, and they did it with a 3-1 record on the week. They won all 3 against teams with losing records, but lost when they played a real team at San Antonio, although they did keep the game close. This week will be tough, with games against Portland, Houston, and Toronto.

Pick of the Day

New Mexico

The Lobos are hosting San Jose State tonight, and the Spartans still haven't won a Division I game, so any time they play a good team it is an easy pick for me.

Pick of the Day

Cornell

The Big Red is facing the Brown Bears tonight, and while both have similar records, Cornell's schedule so far has been much tougher, so tonight they'll prove that they are the better team in the middle of the Ivy League.

Pick of the Day

San Diego State

The Aztecs are not the top 10 team they have been in recent years, but they are still in the Mountain West race, and tonight they host Fresno State, who is not as good as their 5-2 conference record shows.

College Basketball Rankings - 26 Jan

Kentucky and Virginia are still atop the rankings after surviving another week without a loss, but both are still projected to lose at least once this season. The Wildcats should be able to make it through the next 10 days with no problem, but their next potential loss will come at Florida on February 7. In that same period the Cavaliers will face Duke, North Carolina, and Louisville, all in my top 11, and would get heavy consideration for the top spot if they make it through still perfect. Meanwhile, there is one team, Gonzaga, projected to win every game the rest of the way, with a 3-point overtime loss at Arizona as the only negative mark on their record if that is the case. In this week's rankings, teams in bold are projected conference champs, while teams in italics are projected to make the tourney as at-large teams:

Arizona moved into the top 10 this week after winning their 4th straight conference game, with an 18-point win over Utah just over a week ago as the biggest highlight. I still have the Utes as the Pac 12 champs this season, as they will play again on February 28th in Salt Lake City, where the Wildcats will probably lose. Either way, the Pac 12 has 2 teams that could be #2 seeds this March.

Georgetown made the top 5 this week thanks to a huge upset of Villanova, who had been #4 in the AP poll going into the game. That game came right after the Hoyas beat Butler, another very good team, and they finished the week with a win at Marquette. The Hoyas have faced the 3rd-toughest schedule in the nation so far, behind only Kansas and North Carolina, so losing 5 games at this point, all against tourney teams, is actually pretty impressive.
