The over is 7-2 in Connecticut’s last 9 games. The favorite is 4-0 ATS in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings.
Marquette comes into this game playing great basketball in their last 9 games, while Connecticut is coming off of back-to-back losses. Connecticut is the better defensive and rebounding team, while Marquette is the better shooting team. This game should be back and forth and I think either team could win, so I am taking the points with Marquette.
