    UConn opens up -7.5 SDSU

    7.5 seems about right.
    I was thinking eight flat before I saw the opener, 7.5 is a sharp opener.

    This is interesting as the books are trying to bait the public to take the points. I don't think SDSU has anything left in the tank. UConn should never be threatened at all.

    Thought the total might be higher - Opened at 130.5 - SD St can muck it up a bit but I still think it goes over

    WWE has Suplex City, but UConn has Blowout City!

    Another college championship that is already decided before tip off. Iíll be shocked if the ratings arenít absolute trash. This isnít a game worth a damn just give uconn the title by default

    I think it's too high.
    SDSU has 3-4 bigs on the floor and is tremendously good against the 3.

    The betting public already has a favorite side for Mondayís NCAA national title game between the UConn Huskies and San Diego Aztecs.

    Fresh off demolishing the Miami Hurricanes in Saturdayís Final Four, UConn moved from an opening spread of -5 at DraftKings to -6.5 within just 5 minutes, before settling at -7.5 at DK. The line is as high as -8.5 at SugarHouse.

    Mondayís over/under, meanwhile, currently ranges anywhere from 130 to 132, depending on the shop.

    Philly sportsbook, place smells like an ash tray

    Reportedly super book debated opening line one guy said 5 other guy 8 opened 6 and public hammered it up to 7.5. Give that guy who chose 8 a raise

    Steam quickly happened at a lot of books

    I donít care about the ratings but I mention the ratings because itís the only way to show that people donít care. You like watching games where one team has absolutely no shot of winning the title? Watch the tournament for a few weeks just to know in the end around the elite 8 the tournament was all done?

    I know a poker dealer at Sugar House, when I was in physical rehab for my hip in NJ at the same time he was there for a bum arm.

    He deals low limit games, he referred to the low limit games as 'white chip' games, which I found kind of funny since I never heard that term before, anyway he told me "just play some live action at the white chip games if you want to pick up a couple of hundred easy dollars, the fish that play are clueless"

    Me too, loving this tourney.
    I personally think the ratings tomorrow will be OK, not great, but not piss poor either, somewhere up the middle.

    Duke is OK in my book, I kind of like the dude.

    I'm not jumping ugly here because he makes a reasonable argument, I understand his PoV, I don't understand the over the top concern he has about the ratings because I'm a tad selfish, by that I mean I'll watch the game, that's a given, if nobody else does and the ratings tank that's not my problem, as long as I'm not paying for the marketing and advertising, and nothing is coming out of my pocket, I couldn't care less if the game got an eight share or a fourteen share, doesn't alter my life one iota.

    Yeah nash I like the dude, but heís been in a bit of a mood lately. He has been a cloud and not a rainbow. Itís sports and gambling man, we should be having fun! The beauty of the tournament is thereís 68 teams, and everyone has a chance. Yeah itís been looking for awhile like UConn is gonna win it all, but who cares. I like good ball and weíve gotten plenty of that and I donít care if anyone else is watching.

    UCONN just destroyed Gonzaga and Miami FL, so this one is probably a 10 point win.

    Probably. SDSU does have pretty good midrange shooting which will help them, because where it falls apart for most teams is when they try to get to the basket everything just breaks down. But itíll take more than just that to beat this team

    ^
    What I don't understand is why teams feel compelled to take it inside the paint against UConn.
    They don't just have trees in the pivot, they have redwoods, it's not one singular redwood either, the Huskies have a mother freaking forest down there.

    It's not just Sanogo, there's Clingan, and Karaban too.
    Huskies reduced Timmee a jellyfish in the Gonzaga game.
    There's a reason why UConn's team defense metrics are elite.
    They'll beat you inside out, with Hawkins, or outside in with Sanogo.
    They have snipers with unlimited range as well.

    You can beat UConn with perimeter shooting, but you better bring your 'A' game shooters, if you don't, well you've seen the destruction, a string of twenty point blowouts.

    Raff said it best yesterday when he said to Nantz, "Huskies just keep coming at you in waves"
    Reminds me some of Geno's Maya Moore championship teams, those girls kept coming at you in waves as well.

    FAU would have given UConn a much better game. You have to have outside shooters to beat UConn. Bully ball isnt going to work.
