Roy-Duncan Matchup Cancelled at 5:43 p.m. ET
Due to "stiffness" in Tim Duncan's knee, he will sit out tonight's game against the Trail Blazers. Our match-up between Duncan and Brandon Roy is now off the board, so enjoy your unlocked pick.

Today's Preview
The Accenture Match Play Championship starts today with four first round matchups on on our board. Three of the matches are straight-up but we do have one special "Tiger" matchup. We ask what will be the result of the Woods-Jones match? If Tiger wins 3 and 2, 2 and 1, 1-up, or if Brendan Jones wins, the "over" option wins.

In UEFA Champions League action, Liverpool are the underdogs on the road at Real Madrid and "two goals or fewer" is the favorite for the Juventus-Chelsea match.

A pair of NHL matchups begin at 7:30 p.m. ET. The first features the top two teams in the west meeting in Detroit, with the Red Wings (-127) favored over the Sharks. Also, the Maple Leafs host the Rangers.

Three college basketball matchups are in the 9 p.m. hour, starting with a "total points" battle between Big 12 opponents, Kansas State and Missouri. Current ACC Player of the week Greivis Vasquez takes on Kyle Singler in a "more points" matchup when Duke travels to Maryland. Keep in mind Vasquez only scored four points in their last meeting. Don't forget the "more 3-pointers" matchup between Texas Tech and Texas at 9:35 p.m. ET. Tech averages about two more 3-pointers per game, so choose wisely.

In NBA action, Brandon Roy takes on Tim Duncan in a "higher total" matchup with both players using their points plus rebounds. Lastly, at 10 p.m. ET, the Bobcats take on the Kings in Sacramento.


NCAA Basketball: No. 2 UConn Huskies at No. 10 Marquette Golden Eagles
The former No. 1 team in the country takes on fellow top 10 foe Marquette in our marquee matchup of the night. The Jerome Dyson-less Huskies are favored by two but the big question is -- will UConn be able to defend Marquette's trio of guards? Or how will Marquette guard 7-foot-3 Hasheem Thabeet? Something has to give. One thing for sure, this should be one heck of a game to watch.

Yesterday's Results
