  • Corey Davis Jr. scored a career-high 31 points Sunday, and No. 12 Houston dominated the second half for an 85-69 victory over No. 20 Cincinnati that clinched the American Athletic Conference's regular-season title outright.

Action and Line Movement:

  • Better than 60% of the early action was on Houston -10 with no line movement observed.

Trends:

  • Despite UConn sitting at the .500 mark Against The Spread, they are 19-13 Against The Spread on the season thus far.   They are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall.
  • Using the current 10-point spread, Houston has failed to cover versus UConn in the last four meetings.

Picks:

Winners and Whiners: "The Cougars dominated AAC opponents this season and lost only two games during the regular season. They are coming off a 14-point win over the 20th ranked team in the country and shouldn’t have any problems putting the Huskies away."  Houston, but by how many points is the question?
