Tulsa +7 over Temple
Tulsa has three solid seniors who won’t be intimidated on the road. This team beat Temple this year and also Temple does not really have a big presence in the middle of their defense with their center being out. I believe this line is just too inflated for this Temple team. Temple is not a great shot blocking team so look for Tulsa to get easy buckets. This should be a solid offensive game. Take Tulsa.

Syracuse +5 over Duke
Duke is the best team in the country, but they are young and coming off a bad loss in which not only did they lose to their rivals, but they lost their best player. Zion Williamson is a threat under the basket, can rebound, can block shots and he can hit three pointers. The guy can do it all and not having him hurts this young basketball team that doesn’t know how to play any other way than they have been playing. The Carrier Dome is a tough place to play and tough for 3 point shooting as well. Duke is not good from behind the three point line and might have trouble with this 2-3 zone on the road. This should be a lower scoring battle. Take Syracuse.
