I’ve found a few spots to back Connecticut this year, but the fact is they are -10.4 units on the season SU. Here they take on the best team in their conference a second time, and I don’t think much will change from the first meeting.

    Cincinnati Bearcats vs Connecticut Huskies  


The 14-15 Connecticut Huskies have an injury sheet with a list equal to half of their roster, as they are limping home to end their 2017 season. They played Cincinnati once already this year and didn’t even perform that bad statistically, but still lost 82-68 on the road. UConn shot 42.1% from the floor and 50% from distance in that match up. Cincinnati, on the other hand, dominated UConn in all facets of the game and both of their big men scored 20 points or more just a few weeks ago.

Cincinnati ended up covering their 13.5-point chalk in that first game by a half point at home; however, they were up by 23 points at one point in the game. That kind of dominance makes this light 3.5-point road chalk seem like a good deal to me, so I am going to take Cincinnati -3.5 as another Sunday college basketball pick.
