Oklahoma has struggled since its dazzling start, with a 4-3 record in Big 12 play and consecutive losses to Kansas State and Oklahoma State. The Sooners saw their massive comeback effort come up short Saturday in an overtime loss to the Cowboys. Kansas has won five straight since its home loss to Texas Tech, but remains overvalued in the betting market. The Jayhawks struggled to get by a marginal Baylor team int heir last game. Look for Trae Young and the Sooners' edge in firepower to be the difference Tuesday.

The Avalanche are winners of 10 straight and on the fast track to the playoffs. The line curiously favors the Canadiens at home. But to win, either team must score four or more goals, which makes the Over an attractive proposition tonight.

Clemson lost a big part of its success when senior forward Donte Grantham tore his ACL, ending his college career. That's 14 ppg and 7 rebounds a game missing as Clemson goes into Charlottesville's web of defense where Virginia has not lost all season. Virginia has stayed Under in 12 of 16 games so far aided by a relentless defense that allows only 36 percent shooting -- at home it drops to 35 percent. Under is the top play here.

St. John's went 10-2 in non-conference play, but has yet to notch a Big East win in eight tries. Six of those losses were by single digits, including a 78-71 defeat at Creigton. The Bluejays have lost two of three after a five-game win streak, and they're only 1-3 on the road in the Big East. But Creigton is still the better team, and two points feels small. My projections agree, calling for a nine-point win and covering in 65 percent of simulations.

The Aggies have won two straight while the host Tigers have lost three in a row. But LSU has fared slightly better against similar opponents, and A&M has yet to win on the road in the SEC this season. My projections see an outright Tigers win, but take the points for the cushion.
