FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVlCE PLAYS VlSlT THESPREAD.COM
Oklahoma State (19-10 SU, 11-13-1 ATS) has its mojo back thanks to the the return of sophomore sensation Marcus Smart, who watched his team go winless during his three-game suspension stemming from an incident with a fan in Lubbock during a loss to Texas Tech. Travis Ford's team ended a seven-game losing streak in Smart's first game back, and it has now won three in row both SU and ATS.

How does a team win a game when it gets destroyed on the board by a 41-22 margin? Well, you better have Smart on your squad and you better force 22 turnovers. That was the recipe for success in Oklahoma State's 72-65 win Saturday night over Kansas as a one-point home favorite. Smart finished with 21 points, six rebounds, five assists and four steals. Markel Brown also scored 21 points by making all 10 of his attempts from the free-throw line. Le'Bryan Nash added 16 points and four blocked shots.

Fighting Irish close their first season in the ACC at one of the toughest venues in the conference and against one of the hottest teams. Fighting Irish sorely lacking in their ability to beat the point-spread at 8-18-2 ATS, UNC reeling off eleven straight wins with a profitable 9-2 ATS mark and putting together a strong 6-0 ATS streak at Dean E. Smith Center, Tar Heels are the choice.
