We’ll have some weekend postage for the Super Bowl. Until then, we’ll pick the winners of the weekend’s hottest matchup, and a couple prop bets, too. We still call them “Weekend Picks.” Home teams are still in ALL CAPS.

Tonight: STETSON -5 over USC Upstate. I don’t even know if this is the college basketball team from DeLand, Florida, or the cologne. Either one of them is stronger than Upstate.
Saturday: STOKE CITY +105 over Sunderland. You know what movie they really need to remake? Some of you will hate me for saying this, but Fast Times At Ridgemont High is dying for an update. It would be worth it just to see Sean Penn courted for the role of Mr. Hand. If you’re up at 7:30 am tomorrow morning (loser), you can watch this game on ESPN2.
BYU over UNLV. Why can’t we get a Jimmer Fredette game on national television?
Anderson Silva -260 over Vitor Belfort. UFC 126 will feature “preliminary bouts” on Spike TV…and a Facebook stream? The main event, and four non-title bouts, will be on PPV.
Sunday: CELTICS over Magic. By now, most of the Bay State’s Patriots fans have pulled out their Paul Pierce jerseys.
Steelers +3 over Packers. One for the opposite ring finger. I’m thinking…Steelers 24, Packers 20. Mendenhall wins MVP.
