1) #10 Illinois will take down #12 Missouri:
The Fighting Illini made the hire of the offseason with John Groce. Groce has led Illinois to a perfect 10-0 start. They already have a big win over Gonzaga, and will add Missouri to the list of victims. While Missouri is off to a hot 9-1 start, the only reputable team they have played, Louisville, soundly beat them. If nothing else, they don’t pass the eye ball test. Illini wins big.

2) Kansas will lose their second game of the season to a B1G Ten team:
The Kansas Jayhawks are always a good basketball team. ALWAYS. They always find a way to bust the brackets of hoops fans in March. That will mean nothing on Saturday night. Ohio State is playing great basketball. Their only loss on the year came to #1 Duke, and The Buckeye’s play in the nations best hoops conference. They will be ready for anything Kansas will bring.
Ohio State Buckeyes 79 Kansas 74
3) San Fransisco will clinch the NFC West:
Pete Carroll has had a great second season at the helm of The Seattle Seahawks. His team is probably playoff bound, but not as NFC West Champions. Jim Harbaugh’s squad is the best in the NFL, when they show up mentally. Look for Collin Kaepernick to go off on the Seahawks. and the 49er defense to show Russell Wilson what big time NFL football is.
San Fransisco 49ers 27 Seattle Seahawks 17
4) Cincinnati will beat Pittsburgh and find their way into the playoffs:
When it rains, it pours, and things are getting slippary in Pittsburgh. Ben Roethlisberger can’t seem to get Todd Haileys offense to click, and The Steel Curtain looks more like a paper tiger. Some are calling for Mike Tomlin’s job, but that is taking things a bit far. Cincinnati is getting hot at the right time, and a trip to the post season will be their reward.
Cincinnati Bengals 28 Pittsburgh Steelers 21
Oklahoma City is not the only team that is on fire right now. The Clippers are winners of 11 strait, and have games against Sacramento on Friday and Phoenix on Sunday. I don’t see either of those teams stopping CP3 and Blake Griffin. They duo are one of the best one two punches in the NBA, and the Kings of Los Angeles are making a real statement in the Western Conference.
