UConn vs Marquette Prediction & Pick

These two teams have played twice this season, both coming away with the win on their home floors. While both teams played yesterday, Marquette's game was more hard-fought and went into OT. You have to give UConn the advantage in the energy department.

I'll give the edge to UConn in this one overall due to their defensive prowess of late, surrendering more than 69 points in a game just once in their last five contests. Meanwhile, Marquette has given up more than that in four of their last five games.

Prediction: UConn 73 | Marquette 68

UConn vs Marquette Best Bet

UConn is a 4.5-point favorite in this one, but we can grab some better odds by taking them to win by 1-10. The two previous matchups between these teams this season had a margin of six points and 15 points. I expect this one to be on the closer side given the stakes. This bet provides us some wiggle room on each side of the line.

Bet: Winning Margin - UConn 1-10 Points (+172)
