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.
