The Memphis Tigers welcome the Cincinnati Bearcats to the FedEx Forum today.

After looking like they might make a run at the AAC regular season title, Memphis hit a brick wall in Houston last Sunday. The Tigers fell 64-72 to the Cougars. While it was not the result they were hoping for, it was promising they could keep it that close while missing star senior Kendric Davis. It will be interesting to see how they fare when they take on the Cougars at home next Sunday.

As for today’s game, Memphis will try to keep rolling. The Tigers have won eight of their last ten and are peaking at the right time. There was little to think of this team early in the season, but as they reach final form, they could make some noise in March.

Memphis has struggled to cover at home this season, but as they begin preparations for tournament time, they should run over this Cincinnati squad.

Memphis -5.5 (-110)
Over 152 (-110)

UCLA @ Colorado

The Bruins head to Boulder to take on the Buffaloes tonight.

Playing in Colorado is typically a challenging task, but the Bruins have won in two of their last three visits to CU Events Center. However, they have only covered twice in their previous five trips.
Today they take a seven-game winning streak to Colorado as they play their final road game of the regular season. After this game, they go home to take on Arizona State, then the Arizona Wildcats.

UCLA has already lost to the Wildcats once this season, but they only need to win one of these last three to lock up the regular season title. While they have played well all season, bettors cannot assume they are the best team in the PAC-12. However, they should be regular season champions after tonight.

The Buffaloes have been losing horribly lately, so while a win will come easily for the Bruins, a cover should not be too challenging.

UCLA -7.5 (+100)
Under 134.5 (-110)
