As March winds down, Streak for the Cash players are looking to reach their goals. For some players, that’s a streak of a certain length, or more wins than some guy called the Messenger (thanks Progressive). Whatever you’re goal is, it’s not time to sit and watch since there’s just 3 more picking days ’til April…
This month’s been a busy one at FantasyCPR as our regular visitors have surely noticed. With the NBA in full swing, the NFL offseason moves happening quickly, and MLB Spring Training, we’ve definitely had our plates full of sports goodness. Unfortunately, our attempt to staff our streak picks out didn’t work out so well, so you’re stuck with me for now. In April, I hope to post my picks and confidence rank (scale of 1-10) for each day even if I can’t give full analysis. Make sure to check back each day and let me know what you think in the comments section at the bottom of the pages.
Here’s how I’m rolling as I try to get me some green before March is gone:
1:05-Maria Sharapova: She’s higher ranked and playing better currently. The odds are with her in this matchup to be sure, but it’s ladies tennis which can be unpredictable. Confidence Meter-4
7:00-Minnesota: The Golden Gophers just knocked off Washington in their previous game who was the best team in the Pac-12 regular season this year. Stanford lost to Washington by 13 during their regular season. Minnesota has been playing well since the postseason began beating Northwestern before losing to Michigan in OT in the Big 10 tournament and going on the road to beat LaSalle, Miami, and Middle Tennessee before knocking off Washington. They’ve lately shown they can win close, late. I’ll to with Tubby Smith and his Big 10 team to represent and take the NIT Championship for the 3rd time in the last 20 years. Confidence Meter-6
10:00-Phoenix Coyotes: It’s another important hockey showdown in the Western Conference as the standings continue to flip and jump all over from night to night. San Jose lost last night dropping from 3rd to 8th while Phoenix are just 1 points out of the playoffs. They should get a boost from the return of Shane Doan from suspension as well. The Sharks have struggled on the road, they may not start their 1st-string goaltender and the Coyotes have won both previous meetings against San Jose in Phoenix. The 2 teams played last Saturday and the Sharks won at home in a shootout, but I expect home ice and the other factors already mentioned to get the Coyotes the win here and vault them into a playoff spot at least temporarily. Confidence Meter-5
