- Gardner-Webb (+35) over Duke: Even though Gardner-Webb hasn't beaten a true DI team this season, It's tough to predict whether or not a basketball game will end with the winning team scoring 35 more points than its opponent, so we will go the safe route and pick the Runnin' Bulldogs to cover. Expect Duke to get up early and then play at a relaxed pace up to the final buzzer.
- Wyoming (+24) over #8 Tennessee: I think this game will be much closer than the spread indicates. The Volunteers may score bunches of points, but Wyoming has been playing incredible team basketball, forcing 21 turnovers a game and making more free throws than any other team in the country. If the Cowboys play responsibly, Bruce Pearl will have his hands full.
- UNLV (-16.5) over Southern Utah: Tre'Von Willis, Oscar Bellfield and the rest of the Running Rebels should be in for a barnburner when they face the a Thunderbird team that has dropped five straight. If Southern Utah will have any chance, it will be on the back of Davis Baker in this Mormon state rivalry.
