According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Bearcats are 10.5-point favorites versus the Huskies while the over/under currently sits at 120.5 points.
After routing South Florida 77-66 in the opening round of the AAC tournament, the Huskies upset Houston 74-65 as a 4.5-point underdog on Friday. The win was the Huskies' six in their last 10 games and they're now 5-5 against the spread over their last 10 contests. They're 11-18 ATS on the season.
Cincinnati had little trouble beating Tulsa in its first AAC tournament game this season, easily disposing of the Golden Wave 80-61 as a 15.5-point favorite. The win was the Bearcats' third in a row and it was also the third consecutive time they covered the spread as well. They're now 8-2 over their last 10 games and 5-5 against the spread during that span.
OUR PREDICTION: The favorite is 7-3 against the spread in the last 10 meetings between these two teams while the Huskies are just 1-4 against the number in their last five games versus the Bearcats. UConn has also failed to cover the spread in five of its last seven neutral site games and is 1-4 against the spread in its last five games overall.
