  • Boomer – Lockwood: They are close in the standings, but Lockwood is on a four game streak.  Look for a low scoring but exciting match.
  • Arndt – McGovern: I was told to not let my feelings get in the way of making picks, but I just can’t imagine a situation where McGovern would lose.  Arndt has shown serious abilities against good teams, but McGovern is back to their original lineup this week.
  • Lawrence – Sonnabend: Lawrence can hold their own against top ranked teams so Sonnabend will have no room for error.  Sonnabend would be the easy choice (given their record) but I need an upset for the week, so don’t let me down Lawrence.
  • Wangensteen – Beranek: Early losses have kept Wangensteen down in the rankings but they have been on a roll lately while Beranek has had some ups and downs.  Beranek will be looking for  a win after last week’s close loss. I think they’ll remind Wangensteen what defeat feels like.
  • Stanek – McLellan: If they stay healthy, Stanek should take care of business tonight.
  • Jansen – Lichty: Lichty continues its grueling schedule of playing all the top rated teams when they face off against Jansen.  I don’t think they’ll pull it off this week, but look for them to move up dramatically during the second half of the season.
  • Erickson – Kruse: Kruse has shown that they can take on anyone in this league and I think that they’ll perpetuate that sentiment this week.  Look for Erickson to make it interesting, but I’ll go with Kruse in the end.
  • Anderson – Rohde: These guys are very close, but Rohde got a big confidence boost with last weeks victory, I’m sure being predicted on this site had a lot to do with it.  This will be the match to watch come 11:00.

I expect to see lots of action this week, and I’ll do my best to get some interesting video to post on Thursday.  See you soon.

Good Curling

    No earth shattering picks this week, but picking us to lose is a “safe” upset pick. I’m going to do my best to make sure you don’t have a perfect pick week.
