There’s another full day of picks as we wind down the month of November after a tough day of picks yesterday. There were upsets all across the board yesterday as the lower percentages dominated most of the picks with Miami’s upset of Michigan state slaying over 25,000 streaks. Hopefully, today I’ve got the right upsets picked on today’s 15-pick Streak for the Cash board. There’s some early golf and soccer picks before tonight’s filled college and Pro hoops schedule with a big NFL and a big NCAA football game mixed in.

Here’s the picks I like the most for today:

Picks for 11/29

12:22- Brandt Snedeker or tie: Unless there’s a big difference in talent level it’s always better to take the tie. Sneds has been playing well but doesn’t have a long track record at this course. This is a extremely small field event with only 18 players participating. Confidence Meter:(out of 10)

1:17- Tiger Woods: Woods is giving the tie but is the defending champ at this event, serves as the host, and it’s a full-round prop not just a nine-hole like the early pick. Confidence Meter: 

7:00- Big East or Tie: With St. John’s favored to win in NYC this pick is just picking that either Notre Dame, Marquette, or Seton Hall get the second win for the Big East. Not sure which one, but I bet one pulls out the W. Confidence Meter:4

7:03- Notre Dame: UK has taken 11 of 12 against the Fighting Irish, but Coach Mike Brey has an experienced squad ready to welcome the new crop of UK freshmen. The Wildcats will be playing their first true road game and ND is 5-0 at home to open the year. UK lost to Duke in their only game against a ranked opponent and edged Maryland by only three in their opener. Notre Dame meanwhile has started the season 6-1 with an overtime loss to St. Joseph’s that knocked them from the top 25 and winning every other game by 10 or more. This will be a huge game for the Irish and I’ll take them to pull off the upset at home. Confidence Meter: 3

7:33- Rutgers Scarlet Knights: Rutgers and Louisville meet in what is essentially a play-in game for the Big East’s automatic BCS bid. While both teams are 9-2 on the season, Rutgers lost last week at Pitt while Louisville was stunned in triple-overtime at home by UCONN. It’s ironic that two teams on their way out of the Big East meet in a primetime game to decide the conference title, and there’s sure to be plenty of discussion about the future of both these schools and conference realignment. However, when it comes to play on the field I’ll go with the Scarlet Knights since Louisville has lost two in a row and Ruters is at home. Confidence Meter: 7

8:10-  Miami Heat: The Heat are undefeated at home and San Antonio has gotten trounced its last two visits to South Beach. Miami is also more rested coming off a four day break since playing the Cavs on Saturday with the Spurs playing last night in Orlando. The Heat will be rested and ready for this big regular season matchup. Confidence Meter: 8

8:30- Atlanta Falcons: The Falcons will be out to avenge their only loss this year as they host the Saints. New Orleans hasn’t beaten any team with a winning record except Atlanta in its last five games lost in to San Francisco last week and Denver on Sunday Night Football in week 8. I’m still not sure I buy the Falcons come playoff time but they are undefeated at home and home teams tend to fare better with short weeks. Confidence Meter: 6

9:05- Marquette loses by single-digits or win: The Gators host Marquete as they look to continue their hot start. So far they’ve dominated every game they’ve played winning by 49, 18, 21, 18, and 7 in their first five games all at home. Marquette will be able to keep this one close I think after a solid start to the year including a successful trip to Maui. The Golden Eagles only loss came on a last-second heave by Butler who then trashed UNC in the next round. Marquette put a beatdown on SEC team Mississippi State in Maui and finished their Hawaii trip with a solid eight-point victory over USC. While the upset may be too much to expect here, I do think Marquette stays within 10. Confidence Meter: 4

10:45- Denver Nuggets: The Nuggets head west and hit the Golden State as they take on the Warriors. Denver had won four in a row before losing to the Jazz their last time out. This is already the third meeting between these Western Conference clubs with Denver winning both previous matchups including a double-overtime thriller in their last trip to Oakland. Confidence Meter: 7
