Zack reveals the struggles of Duke in the month of January that date back for a decade. Larry looks ahead to Eagles-Buccaneers on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET. Will weather concerns change his pick?

The Coach shares the SportsLine Play of the Day. In Serie A action at 3 p.m. ET, two SportsLine cappers are going with Inter Milan and Juventus both to score.

Justin provides a pair of college basketball plays, including Fordham +2.5 against Duquesne at 7 p.m. ET. He is favoring the Rams on their home floor. Justin is also on LSU +2.5 against Florida at 7 p.m. ET. He certainly does not want to fade the Tigers when you consider their 14-1 record.

Zack's featured college basketball pick is Boise State -1.5 over Nevada at 10:30 p.m. ET. "Boise State has been off since Dec. 28th. Nevada has been hot lately. They've won six of their last seven. The reason why I think this line is so small is Nevada unconventionally swept Boise State last year," he says. "I look at Boise State, sure, this long layoff is going to hurt them, but where they can win this game is with their defense. They're 11th in the nation in scoring defense. I'll take Boise State to get revenge for last year."

In the NFL wild card round, Larry is taking the 49ers to score Over 23.5 points against the Cowboys on Sunday at 4:30 p.m. ET. San Francisco does have matchup advantages on the offensive side. Zack and Justin finish with their calls for Villanova and Xavier at 6:30 p.m. ET.
