Connecticut vs. Marquette

The Huskies kick-off play in the Big East with a solid 10-2 SU record in non-conference play. They have won their last four straight including a 61-53 victory over Washington last Tuesday as six-point home favorites. Connecticut is 3-5 ATS and the total has stayed UNDER in four of six games with a posted line. It ranks near the bottom of Division-I in rebounds with just 31.1 a game and its leading rebounder DeAndre Daniels remains questionable for this contest.

Marquette enters conference play with an overall record of 9-3 SU and 3-5 ATS. It is a perfect 7-0 SU at home this season and 1-3 ATS. The Golden Eagles have won three of the last four meetings against the Huskies both SU and ATS. The total in this series has gone OVER in six of the last eight meetings.

Connecticut Huskies at Marquette Golden Eagles

Huskies losing one of the most successful coaches in college basketball history in Jim Calhoun along with losing leading scorer Jeremy Lamb (17.7), Andre Drummond (10.0) to the NBA have gotten off to a smart 10-2 (3-5 ATS) start. Golden Eagles losing their two top contributors from last season in Darius Johnson-Odom and Big East Player of the Year Jae Crowder have started 9-3 (3-5 ATS). Winning on the road is tough at the best of times so we'll recommend a play against UCONN knowing Huskies are 7-10 (2-14-1 ATS) L17 away, 8-12 (6-12-2 ATS) on the road vs the conference and that Golden Eagles are perfect at home this season (7-0, 1-2 ATS), have a 16-0 (7-5 ATS) stretch going in front of the home crowd.
