Maryland (+10) over Duke- It was just one year ago that the 'Terps visited Cameron Indoor Stadium and walked out 41 point losers. Today, they meet again in Durham with first place in the ACC on the line. Maryland (5-2 away) has proven it can win on the road this year but this isn't any old road game. The matchup to watch in this one will be at the point guard position. Duke's Jon Scheyer and Maryland's Greivis Vasquez are both big, versatile players not only counted on to handle the ball, but heavily depended on for points night in and night out. Duke scraped by BC last Saturday, and pulled one out in Chapel Hill on Wednesday, but they'll host a hungry, talented Maryland squad.
Texas A&M (+1.5) over Texas Tech- This should be a good one in Lubbock as two clear bubble teams battle it out in a game that could loom large Selection Sunday. Since losing their star guard Derrick Roland to injury in a loss to Washington in late December, the Aggies silenced doubters by winning 8 of their next 11. In their last four games, the difference has been 6'9'' sophomore David Loubeau who has averaged almost 16PPG in that span. A&M is primed to steal this road game from Mike Singletary and the Texas Tech Raiders.
Kentucky (-10) over Tennessee- The embattled Volunteers roll into rockin' Rupp Arena to face the biggest, most talented team in the land. UT was run out of the gym earlier in the week at Vanderbilt, and the same could happen tonight if Kentucky controls the game in two areas. 1) Will Ferrell said it best in Old School... DeMarcus Cousins has to keep his composure and not let the gravity of Gameday and the interstate rivalry get to his head. 2) With Cousins and Patrick Patterson in the post, they must go inside early and often, and not settle for 3-point shots. Tennessee will hang around for 20-25 minutes, but the Wildcats will pull away.
