Georgetown (-3.5) over Marquette - If the Hoyas, 3-0 ATS in road games this season, are to prevail tonight it will be crippling to the Golden Eagles, who have suffered two tough losses to start Big East play. What West Virginia and Villanova lack in true size and strength is in abundance for G-Town. Look for Greg Monroe to create match-up problems and neutralize Lazar Hayward.
Memphis (+10.5) over Syracuse - This line is rising in favor of Memphis bettors, as many seem to be passing on the Tigers to at least keep this game close. Memphis is decent from behind the arc, though, (they hit about nine each road game), and the opportunities should be plentiful against Boeheim's 2-3 zone. I am hard pressed to think that the Orange will run away with this one.
Charlotte (+12.5) over Tennessee - As the future of Tyler Smith et al still remains undetermined, the Vols return to action with a depleted unit and feelings of angst. Remember when Charlotte traveled to Freedom Hall and faced a Louisville team with the injury bug? The 49ers ran away with a 22 point victory. They're also winners of eight of their last 10. This is not your older brother's Atlantic 10.
Last night 1-2... Impressed with Arkansas last night. Good for them.
