Only six games make the list this week, but we have what look to be three great ones.
Games are ranked like recruits: 5 stars, 4 stars, and 3 stars. Just like in recruiting, 2-star and 1-star games won’t be given much attention.
Games are ranked using a super-scientific system comparing the overall quality of the two teams and the closeness of the match-up. The quality of each team is found using Brian Fremeau’s, Bill Connelly’s, and ESPN’s advanced stats ranking systems.
Last week’s picks: 5-4 (.556); Upset picks: 0-2 (.000)
Without further ado: the games. All times AZ.
