Odds via Caesars Sportsbook | All times are oriental

No. 17 Miami at Duke

Featured game | Duke Blue Devils vs Miami (Florida) Hurricanes

12 m | ESPN, fuboTV (Try for free) — Inside cameron indoor stadium and loss vs Clemson With a week to go, Duke looks like chalk here playing a tight favorite to defend his home court advantage. But few of us, myself included, like Miami that’s in this place to pull a straight W. With Jeremy Roach still missing, the Blue Devils’ backcourt continues to be a sore spot, and Miami’s guard game, among the best in the ACC, is well positioned to take advantage of it. Prediction: Miami +5.5 – Boone

Featured game | Kansas Jayhawks vs. TCU Horned Frogs

1 m | CBS, CBSSports.comAnd CBS Sports app (free) — These teams split their series last season, and TCU nearly got their first-ever win at Kansas before the Jayhawks were held up late defensively in a close game. The Horned Frogs are a veteran band who won’t be intimidated by the rowdy atmosphere inside Allen Fieldhouse. They already have one win in the Big 12 at Baylor Road and will think they can get another win. The Jayhawks are a better bet to win outright because of how dominant they are at home, but it would be a surprise if TCU folded so easily in this Top-15 battle. Prediction: TCU +7.5 – David Cobb

Featured game | Arizona Wildcats vs. UCLA Bruins

2 m | ABC, fuboTV (Try for free) — This has a chance of being the best match on the list on Saturday. UCLA, winning its 14th straight behind a top-five defense, heads to the desert to take on an Arizona team that, when right, has arguably the most explosive offense in the sport. Zona has looked deadly on points this season, even at home, so I’m riding with the road team as the Bruins look to stay hot. Prediction: UCLA -1 – Boone

No. 7 Texas at West Virginia

6 pm | ESPN, fuboTV (Try for free) — West Virginia’s team is stingy to play in Morgantown, West Virginia, but that streak looks out of whack. Texas has more talent, a better roster overall and a bunch of work to outshine WVU, which outside of a win over TCU this week has lost five of its last six. Texas +1.5

No. 4 Alabama at Missouri

6 pm | SEC network fuboTV (Try for free) — The best surprise pick of the week is here. Bama have won 16-2 and have won 11 of 12 while Mizzou have recently fallen to three losses in their last five matches after starting 12-1. The Tigers, out of Kansas, blew them home earlier this season, nailed home runs. Would love for them to give Bama a big push on this place. Missouri +6 – Boone
