Marquette Golden Eagles vs UConn Huskies

6:30 p.m. ET: Marquette Golden Eagles (16-7) at UConn Huskies (15-6)

Spread: UConn -5.5

The #24 UConn Huskies host the #18 Marquette Golden Eagles after R.J. Cole scored 25 points in UConn’s 85-74 loss to the Villanova Wildcats. The Huskies are 9-2 in home games. The Golden Eagles are 8-4 in Big East play. These teams meet for the 2nd time in conference play this season. The Huskies won 78-70 in the last matchup on Dec. 22. Tyrese Martin led the Huskies with 25 points, and Lewis led the Golden Eagles with 20 points. This Marquette team has been playing well winning 8 of the last 10 games while UConn has lost their last 2 games. With UConn coming off back-to-back losses to Creighton and Villanova you can expect this team to be hungry for this one back on their home floor. The public is jumping all over the Golden Eagles because they have had more upset wins over the Top 25 teams compared to any other team this season. Currently, about 85% of the tickets are coming in on Marquette but this line is hardly budging after opening at -5.5 and going all the way up to -7 after some sharp action, the public is brought it back down to the opening number at most books. UConn is the better overall team with the 3-point FG%, free-throw shooting %, and rebounding advantage. Take the Huskies to cover the number in this one. 


  • The Favorite is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
