Experts Picks

CHN experts predict four of the biggest and more importantly, closest games each week..

 

#2 Wisconsin at Michigan State

Tuesday, 7, ESPN

#13 Air Force at UNLV

Tuesday, 10

#9 Texas A&M at Oklahoma State

Wednesday, 9

#17 Duke at Clemson

Thursday, 9

Jeff Borzello

The Spartans need a marquee win for their resume, but the Badgers have too much at both ends for MSU.

Wisconsin

MWC showdown. UNLV nearly knocked off AFA on the road, and will get the job done this time with their athleticism edge. 

UNLV

Oklahoma State is struggling mightily lately, and Acie Law will come through down the stretchfor A&M.

Texas A&M

Will this one come down to a timing error? Duke has turned things around, but Clemson is desperate and will get the W.
Clemson

Jason Brubaker

Tucker and company simply have too much talent for the Spartans, even on the road. Taylor can contain Neitzel, and the Badgers should have their way inside.
Wisconsin

 

Falcons failed last big road test at SDSU, but they will atone for it here. AFA's style and poise will frustrate the Rebels.

Air Force

Cowboys are tough at home(13-1), and will be fired up after loss to Mizzou. Aggies, led by
Law, will make it tough, but ultimately fall short.

Oklahoma State

Blue Devils appear to have rebounded from mini-slump and regained the Duke swagger. Outside shooting and defense will be the keys as Duke walks out of Clemson a winner.
Duke

Kevin McNeill

The back-against-the-wall rule for the talented-home-team-that desperately-needs-a-win hasn't failed me yet. Why tempt fate.

Michigan State

The Rebels haven't lost at home since before Thanksgiving and are looking for some revenge and some national respect.  They should get both here.

UNLV

The wheels have come off the Cowboy bandwagon, and A&M has not lost to
anybody not named Texas Tech since early December.
Texas A&M

Clemson, once the nation's last undefeated team, has lost 7 of 9, officially ending their feel good story for the season.  Duke should
put an end to their NCAA Tournament hopes..
Duke

Shawn Siegel

Wisconsin fans feel I've slighted them in the CHN Top 50 all year.. the disrespect continues today.

Michigan State

Last time I picked Air Force on the road, they got hammered by 21 at SDSU. I wont make the same mistake twice.

UNLV

Basically I'm going with the same reason as Kevin above. Cowboys are in danger of dropping to 8th in the Big 12.

Texas A&M

Clemson came oh so close to beating Duke in Cameron.. so you figure Clemson will win at home, right? Wrong.

Duke

 

Predicting Record

Brubaker (23-13), Siegel (19-17), Borzello (17-19), Silver (11-5), McNeill (11-9), Tomassini (8-8)
