Saturday Picks and Open Thread

I am sad to report that PB's flight to Vegas was canceled yesterday, and he was forced to spend the night in an airport hotel. He has decided not to fly out today and is in route back to South Bend. Hopefully, we'll see him later on the blog.

In the standings, PB continues to lead. We've got some different picks today, however. I will either be back in it or totally done.

AGAINST THE SPREAD:  PB [19-12] [19-13]  /  AW  [15-19] [15-17]

STRAIGHT UP:  PB [23-9]  /  AW [24-8]

OVER/UNDER:  PB [16-14-2]  /  AW [19-11-2]
