Beat the Blogger Match-Ups: Mar. 10-11

You can’t predict conference tournaments, so this week is heavy on the NBA, with two NHL games thrown in for good measure. Next week, I’ll figure in the NCAA tournament somehow – perhaps the second-round games on Saturday (although then the picks won’t be available until Friday).

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.
