Bet Today's UConn vs. Colorado Matchup

UConn enters this year's NCAA Tournament with as much momentum as any team in the field. The Huskies won the AAC Tournament following a wild 104-97 win over Cincinnati in four overtimes, then went on to manhandle Temple 77-62 and Memphis 72-58. UConn covered the spread in all three of those games and is 4-0 against the number in its last four contests overall.

Kevin Ollie found something when he put Rodney Purvis in the starting lineup to help set the tone defensively. Purvis hounded opponents' top guards in the conference tournament and he could be a weapon again today against a Colorado team that turned the ball over nearly 14 times a game. While the Buffaloes should have the edge on the glass, betting against the Huskies right now is a dangerous proposition.
