NHL outdoor games hit the Under nearly 85 percent of the time when the temperature at game time is below 25 degrees Celsius. Saturday night's forecast for Landsdowne Park in Ottawa is a crisp 7 to 9 degress Celsius, with wind chills approaching -12 to -15. I?m suggesting the Under 5.5 play between these scoring-challenged teams.

Carmelo Anthony returns to face his former team Saturday when the Thunder visit the Knicks. This storyline will grab the majority of the attention, the story told by the box score should be a Knicks' victory. Oklahoma City is coming off a triple-OT victory late Friday, and also had a hard-fought win Wednesday at Indiana. New York should be determined to show how little it misses Anthony by notching a fourth straight win.
Look for Southern Utah to answer the bell against Central Michigan in what should be an entertaining game Saturday. Take the points.

Look for the Bearcats to take advantage of their depth and skill set advantage Saturday against UCLA. Grab the Bearcats.

They started strong and faded late against both Duke and Louisville. But the experience, and a week to prepare, should come in handy Saturday in the Crossroads Classic against a Notre Dame club that hasn't played upper-tier competition since late November.
