Cincinnati-UConn Line

The Cincinnati-UConn line was coming in at -3.5 in favor of the Huskies.  Nearly everyone was on the Connecticut spread very early on.  The total for this game was 130.

Connecticut is 9-0 Against The Spread in all tournament games. 

"The matchup obviously with UConn is something that is tough to do, having to play a conference foe in the NCAA tournament," Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin said. "But you've got to play who they match you up against. Probably the tougher part is playing the hottest team in America, which I don't think I'd get much argument that UConn is probably the hottest team in America."

The number three-seeded Huskies beat Bucknell easily as did number six-seeded Cincinnati in its Tournament game against Missouri. 

Bearcats forward Yancy Gates figures there's good and bad in having such a familiar foe.

"We've only got one day to prepare for them, but we pretty much already know UConn," Gates said. "But it's also the same for them, they pretty much already know us. But we don't feel they got the best UC team the first time."

Connecticut is 2-1 Against The Spread versus Cincinnati over the last 3 seasons.  They have split their four games outright however.

Oregon Ducks at Washington State Cougars Betting Pick

Oregon Ducks at Washington State Cougars Betting Pick

Not much has gone right for Washington State this season, including three losses in four PAC-12 contests. While the Cougars were able to bring down UCLA earlier in the year, Washington State has dropped its other three conference games by an average of 14 points apiece. Although Washington State will have an opportunity to protect its home floor in Thursday night’s PAC-12 action, they’ll be facing off against an Oregon Ducks team with two victories in three attempts on the road this season.

NBA Betting – Portland Trail Blazers at Houston Rockets

NBA Betting – Portland Trail Blazers at Houston Rockets

Just last season the Portland Trail Blazers won 53 games and reached the Western Conference final. They are currently on pace to win 33 games and miss the postseason for the first time in seven years. There still is plenty of basketball left with the Blazers hitting the midway point and snatching a victory last time out. But the West is stacked and the Houston Rockets are one of the teams at the top of the standings. Led by NBA scoring leader James Harden, Houston is one of five times within three games of each other in the congested West race and look to get back in the win column after dropping Tuesday’s game in Memphis.
