Seton Hall -2.5 over Providence (win)
This is going to be a great game. Seton Hall finished first in the BIG East last year while the Friars finished 4th. That gap was only 1 game so the talent is pretty even. Providence is a team to me that has too many heroes and can get lazy with their passes at times. Ed Cooley has been a great coach, but it feels like his teams have lacked discipline over the last few seasons. Seton Hall has a little bit more scoring power which should make all the difference in a close game down the stretch. Take Seton Hall.

TCU +4.5 over Oklahoma State (win)
TCU put on a gem in their last game against ranked Missouri and then Jamie Dixon’s squad took their foot off the gas and blew the game in overtime. That was a tough loss, but it proves this team has potential. This roster for this Horned Frogs team has a lot of great athletes and 3 point shooters. Oklahoma State has the sensational freshman Cade Cunningham, but this team is super young. On any given night they can forget basic fundamentals. I think this will be a tight game that goes right to the wire. TCU can really turn the corner if they get a win here on at home. Take TCU.

Virginia -6.5 over NC State (win)
NC State took a huge hit with Devon Daniels going down for the year. This team might also be without DJ Funderburk tonight as well. UVA plays great defense and if two major rebounders are off the floor for NC State it’s going to be tough for them to get any second chance points. UVA is not flashy on offense, but they have an advantage tonight and I don’t see their guards being stopped. Look for the Cavs to have a big night shooting the 3 ball. Take Virginia.
