Cincinnati @ Notre Dame(-3.5):Take Notre Dame-
The Fighting Irish will be glad to be back in South Bend after two lopsided defeats at Marquette and St. John's.Cincinnati has averaged just 56.5 PPG against ranked teams this year, and their best player Yancy Gates
has really struggled to score lately. Notre Dame hasn't lost at home all year so don't expect that to change tonight.
Duke @ NC State(+10):Take NC State-
Kyrie Irving's injury has had the following ripple effect: Nolan Smith
dribbles for 28 seconds each possession, Mason Plumlee
averages less than 4PPG, and Duke looks as beatable as they did from 2006-2009. Tracy Smith
and NC State will bring their A-game tonight and Duke will have trouble on the road again. The Blue Devils may manufacture a win somehow, but not by this margin.
Texas A&M @ Texas(-7):Take Texas A&M- Tonight's top game features two sophomore sensations, the Aggies' Khris Middleton and the Longhorns' Jordan Hamilton. These guys could turn this one into a wild west shootout, and it has the makings of a game that will come right down to the end, nothing new as both teams have played two overtime games already this year.
