This week will not only mark the month of November but it will also note the second half of the season. We have seen much action already in this season and we saw plenty of it this past week.

With all of that in mind, here are my Week 9 picks.

2014-15 NBA Predictions

So not much has changed on the NBA landscape since the Spurs won their fifth title in 15 years back in June. Only LeBron James signed with the Cavaliers, then eventually brought Kevin Love to town as well. The Clippers got some new ownership, at a cool cost of $2 billion. Some free agency here, some free agency there and yet, everybody is chasing the Spurs. Who will win it all come June? It's time for my 2014-15 NBA predictions.

2014 Chase for the Sprint Cup: Eliminator Round Predictions

After the wild, as expected, conclusion to Sunday's race at Talladega Superspeedway, the field for the Eliminator Round of the 2014 Chase for the Sprint Cup was set as the field of 12 drivers was whittled down to eight. I was not nearly as good predicting this past round as I was the first round, only getting one eliminated driver correct. This round will set the field for who will run for the title in Homestead in a little more than three weeks, who will those four drivers be?

Good stuff all around, but can this week top it? Here are my picks.
