After a great win against Ole Miss on Saturday, the Tiger’s season rolls on against the Little Rock Trojans. Memphis picked up the win against the spread this weekend, but the Rebels played at too slow of a pace to land the over.

Before continuing their tour of the SEC, Memphis hosts the Trojans in a walkover game where they are favored by (-27.5)

This is a challenging game to call, as Little Rock has not played any teams anyone has heard of, but playing a real school, there is no reason to think Memphis won’t crush them. It will be an ugly game, and Memphis should hold Little Rock to under 50 points.

Memphis -27.5 (-110) & Under 148.5 (-110)

Iowa vs. Duke

The Hawkeyes and Blue Devils play tonight at Madison Square Garden. Duke is undefeated at home but .500 in neutral-site games.

Iowa is undefeated this season against ACC schools, but they have yet to match up with a ranked ACC opponent.

Duke has already taken two Ls this season, but they were both against ranked teams — Kansas and Purdue. Most recently, they defeated a ranked Ohio State and clobbered a visiting Boston College. They hope to continue their winning ways tonight.

Iowa achieved a 24 ranking in the Coaches Poll, but it is still waiting to be featured on the AP Top 25. While they are destroying opponents, their one loss came against the only ranked team they have played. If they want to be taken seriously, they will need to keep tonight’s game close.

Duke has become stronger as the season has progressed, John Scheyer has this team finding their stride. The Blue Devils shouldn’t have any troubles tonight playing an overvalued Iowa team.

Duke -3 (-110) & Under 146.5 (-110)
