Texas -2 This team will beat Villanova by five points or more. This team has played tougher competition than Villanova so far this season. While Texas was playing tough teams like UCLA, Oregon, and Notre Dame, the Wildcats were beating up on teams called Monmouth and Houston Baptist.
-1.5 The Mavs are getting better but the Spurs play the better defense and this is a must-win for the Spurs as they already have lost once to the Mavs already this season. Spurs win this one with defense.
+4 The Rockets are a team in disarray. No McGrady and Artest has a bum ankle and is questionable tonight. The Hawks have Josh Smith back and I like them here to win this game outright. Yao will be a load for Al Horford and he must use his strength against the height of Yao. Look for Joe Johnson to have a nice game tonight for the Hawks and Mike Bibby with some timely jumpers over Rafer Alston.
