Louisville @ Notre Dame(-4.5):Take Notre Dame- Winners of five straight, Notre Dame has been spurred on by little known senior Scott Martin, who has scored double figures in all five. These Fighting Irish are not a particularly deep team, however no one on the team has fouled out all season and the Cardinals are not masters of getting to the line (less than 20 FTA/Game). The Irish will move to 15-0 at home and cement themselves as one of the top teams in the nation.

North Carolina @ Duke(-10.5):Take Duke- It is a very green UNC bunch against a veteran Duke squad in Cameron Indoor where they have shot 40% or better from 3-point range in 10 of 13 home games. They average eight steals a game and will really pressure UNC's perimeter players in order to prevent John Henson and Tyler Zeller from getting easy entry passes down low. Duke's average winning margin is 20 PPG and they'll likely spread out the lead to cover this spread down the stretch in the second half. 

Texas @ Oklahoma(+12):Take Texas- Some believe Texas may be the finest team in the nation while everyone knows Oklahoma is a terrible team. Not only do the Longhorns boast two top flight scorers in Jordan Hamilton and Tristan Thompson, but they are one of the top defensive teams around as well. They limit opponents to just 60PPG and as few as 8APG, tops among D-1 teams. The 'Horns won by 20 points when the teams met on January 15, expect a big point differential in this one as well..


Overall: 37-35-1

DQ: 32-31-1
NF: 4-2
DR: 1-2
