Bet Tonight's College Hoops Action

Injury Report: No players are listed on Memphis’ injury report tonight but three are listed on UConn’s report. All three Tigers are out, including Eric Cobb (suspension), Alterique Gilbert (shoulder) and Sidney Wilson (eligibility).

Who We Like: Memphis. The Huskies haven’t fared well in this series, failing to cover the point spread in five of their last seven games against the Tigers. UConn is also just 2-5 at the betting window in its last seven games coming off a successful cover in its previous game. On the other side, the Tigers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games coming off a win and are incredibly difficult to beat at home, where they are 11-1 straight up this season. (The Huskies, meanwhile, are just 1-3 on the road this season.)
