Beat the Blogger Match-Ups: Jan. 26-27

Last week proved to be very tough on the collective group, with many failing to even get four games correct. Martin K. came out on top with 6 of the 10 games correct. Perhaps we’ll have better results this week.

With only one Top 25 match-up in college hoops, I picked a few other interesting games.

As a reminder, contestants please post your e-mail address with your picks to be able to get addresses when you win. For those unfamiliar with the Beat the Blogger contest, the idea is simple. The Blogger posts 10 match-ups each week and then selects his choices for the winners of those match-ups. Contestants enter the Beat the Blogger contest by clicking on the “Comment” section below the post with the match-ups and then select their own winners. Please fill out the tie-breaker question at the end.

If you Beat The Blogger’s total and post the high score for the week, you win. The regular weekly prize is a signed 8-by-10 photo of a professional athlete. Now to this week’s match-ups:

NCAA Basketball
Michigan St. at Indiana (Ind)
Syracuse at Villanova (Syracuse)
Louisville at Georgetown (Louis)
North Carolina at North Carolina St. (N.C.)
Notre Dame at South Florida (S. Fla.)

NBA (Sunday)
Miami at Boston (Miami)
Oklahoma City at LA Lakers (OKC)

NHL (Sat)
Philadelphia at Florida (Phil)
Toronto at NY Rangers (Rangers)

NFL – Pro Bowl

Tie-Breaker
Who scores more points in their match-up: Kobe Bryant or Kevin Durant?
