Game 1: No. 4 Virginia Cavaliers vs. No. 8 North Carolina Tar Heels (-120), 7 p.m. EST

The Cavaliers have the best defense in the country, allowing just 54.1 points per game on the season. This slow-paced tempo has carried Virginia to a 20-2 record thus far, but both of these losses have come to Duke and its No. 3 scoring offense in the country (86.8 PPG). North Carolina boasts the nation's second-best scoring offense, averaging 88.3 PPG. The Tar Heels are also 2-0 at home against Top-10 opponents this season, with wins over then-No. 4 Gonzaga and then-No. 10 Virginia Tech.


Game 2: No. 13 Kansas Jayhawks (+135) vs. TCU Horned Frogs, 9 p.m. EST

It's no secret the Jayhawks have struggled on the road this season, with an abysmal 1-6 SU record in away or neutral-site games thus far. But you have to ask yourself, how long can this really go on for a program like Kansas under head coach Bill Self? This is no disrespect to a team like TCU, but Kansas isn't going to be held down forever. Look for a Jayhawks team that was formerly ranked No. 1 in the country, with a win over current No. 1 Tennessee under its belt, to right the ship in Fort Worth tonight.
