GAME PICKS: NLL – Week 10

We are officially past the halfway point of the 2018 National Lacrosse League season. The theme for Week 10 is “double-headers”! The Bandits, Swarm and Knighthawks all play on consecutive nights.

 

The push to the playoffs begins now!

 

NLL staff members Andy McNamara, Tyson Geick, Pat Gregoire, Ashley Docking, and Brian Shanahan deliver their game predictions every week.

 

Send us your picks @NLL on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook using the specific game hashtags for each match-up below.

 

Buffalo Bandits (4-3) at New England Black Wolves (4-2) – Friday, 7:30pm ET

 

Andy

New England has had a long bye week to think about the smackdown they received in Toronto at the end of January. This is a quality club that can play with anyone in the league. That being said, Buffalo has quietly rattled off back-to-back wins and are right in the thick of an East Division title race. The Bandits squeak out a “W”.

Pick: Bandits

 

Tyson

Buffalo is starting to heat up, roll with them.

Pick: Bandits

 

Ashley

Pick: Black Wolves

 

Pat

This one is tough. Buffalo has been hotter than the wings the city is famous for, but New England is unbeaten this year at the Casino. I think it’s a close one but the Black Wolves take it.

Pick: Black Wolves

 

Shanny

Pick: Black Wolves

Georgia Swarm (3-3) at Buffalo Bandits (?-?) – Saturday, 7:30pm ET

 

Andy

I took the Bandits in their first of two games this weekend. However, a fresh Georgia crew rolling on two straight victories is primed here.

Pick: Swarm

 

Tyson

Georgia is figuring out their game and putting a tough start to the season behind them.

Pick: Swarm

 

Ashley

Pick: Bandits

 

Pat

Back-to-back wins for Georgia with 15+ goals, I think we are starting to see the Championship caliber Swarm team heat up. Swarm take this one and it’s a tough weekend for the Bandits.

Pick: Swarm

 

Shanny

Pick: Swarm

Toronto Rock (4-3) at Rochester Knighthawks (2-5) – Saturday, 8pm ET

 

Andy

After scoring at an unworldy pace over four games the Rock came back down to earth against Calgary this past Saturday. It wasn’t so much what Toronto did wrong as much as what the Roughnecks did right.

 

The Knighthawks are riding the waves of a young group trying to find it’s way. I like the Rock to rebound on the road.

Pick: Rock

 

Tyson

The Rock had a weak performance the last time out, they’ll rebound this week.

Pick: Rock

 

Ashley

Pick: Rock

 

Pat

After winning four straight while averaging 20 goals a game, the Rock were shutdown by the Roughnecks last week. Maybe we don’t see 20 goals from Toronto, but I expect an offensive explosion for the red,blue and white on Saturday night.

Pick: Rock

 

Shanny

Pick: Rock

Colorado Mammoth (4-2) at Calgary Roughnecks (2-5) – Saturday, 9pm ET

 

Andy

Maybe it’s recency bias, but Christian Del Bianco may have come of age a future rock star goaltender in the NLL. Calling the game I felt the Roughnecks collective confidence grow as the game progressed. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if Colorado won because they’re a darn good team. I’ll roll with the Riggers at home

Pick: Roughnecks

 

Tyson

I think Calgary has hit a turning point. They’ll mix things up in the West with a win over Colorado.

Pick: Roughnecks

 

Ashley

Pick: Roughnecks

 

Pat

Welcome to the Christian Del Bianco era. I think CBD and the Calgary defence builds off that great performance and knocks off a very strong Colorado club.

Pick: Roughnecks

 

Shanny

Pick: Roughnecks

Saskatchewan Rush (7-1) at Vancouver Stealth (1-7) – Saturday, 10pm ET

 

Andy

If you just look at the record it screams no brainer that the Rush should squash Vancouver. However, the Stealth keep playing the green and black attack close. Can the home club avoid the season sweep? No….I just don’t feel Vancouver is where they need to be from a complete game perspective to down a quality unit like SASK.

Pick: Rush

 

Tyson

Saskatchewan’s a scary team to play against. They’ve cooled off a bit, but I see them getting a big win in this one.

Pick: Rush

 

Ashley

Pick: Rush

 

Pat

It’s very tough to beat a team three times, but when you’re the Saskatchewan Rush, everything seems much easier. I know we’ve seen Vancouver play Saskatchewan close twice already, but I think the Rush complete the season sweep.

Pick: Rush

 

Shanny

Pick: Rush

Rochester Knighthawks (?-?) at Georgia Swarm (?-?) – Sunday, 6:05pm ET

 

Andy

This is interesting as both teams are playing in the second of back-to-backs. Rochester fell 14-11 in Georgia on Dec. 30th, and although their record doesn’t reflect it, the K-Hawks have the horsepower to beat anyone.

 

The Knighthawks lock down an upset win and make the East Division even more interesting.

Pick: Knighthawks

 

Tyson

A 2-0 record this weekend for the Swarm will make things really interesting in the East.

Pick: Swarm

 

Ashley

Pick: Swarm

 

Pat

Like I said before, I think the high powered offence is back in Georgia and the bad luck continues for Rochester.

Pick: Swarm

 

Shanny

Pick: Swarm
