Advocate Picks

Thursday

Rocky Mountain House Rebels (1-5) at Lacombe Rams (5-1), 4 p.m. — The Rams are one of the premier teams in the league and will challenge for the championship while the Rebels are still rebuilding. Pick: Lacombe.

Lindsay Thurber Raiders (1-5-1) at Sylvan Lake Lakers (3-3), 4 p.m. — A tough game to pick as the Raiders look good at times, but their defence has struggled of late. The Lakers haven’t been as good as in the past, but are still good at home. Pick: Sylvan Lake.

Notre Dame Cougars (6-0) at Wetaskiwin Sabres (3-3), 4 p.m. — The Cougars can wrap up first place with a win. They also have the best defence in the league, so far, which will be tough for the Sabres to handle. Pick: Notre Dame.

Stettler Wildcats (0-5-1) at Camrose Trojans (2-4), 7:30 p.m. — The Trojans have one of the most explosive offences in the league behind QB Josh Millang. Stettler does have an outstanding RB in Josh Meyer, but they need to find more defence. Pick: Camrose.

2009 record: 20 right, eight wrong .714

2008 record: 27 right, nine wrong .750

39-year record: 816 right, 247 wrong .768
