ATS Pick: San Diego State +11

UConn has won eight straight NCAA Tournament games with each of those games being decided by double digits. UConn is looking good to make it nine in a row but the question is whether asking UConn to cover as an 11-point favorite is realistic.

The Aztecs have covered in seven of their last nine games versus Big East teams while UConn has won its last 12 games played in March. We like both of those trends to continue – the Huskies winning but San Diego State, which owns wins against WCC powers Gonzaga and Saint Mary’s, finding a way to hang around.

Both teams are in good shape from an injury standpoint. San Diego State’s top nine scorers have combined to miss nine games this season while UConn also has its full roster available.



Over/Under Pick: Over 135½

UConn has held its last three opponents under 60 points while San Diego State is allowing 61 points per game in the NCAA Tournament. Keep that in mind when looking at the best college basketball bets today.

The total has gone over in five of San Diego State’s last seven games.

UConn puts up 81 points per game and is seventh nationally in assists. Even though both teams are ranked in the top 10 by the Pomeroy college basketball ratings in adjusted offensive efficiency, we like this game to creep over the 135½-point total.



Player Prop Pick: Tristen Newton to have 7+ Assists (+100)

UConn’s Newton has 18 assists and just four turnovers in the first two NCAA Tournament games. Look for the All-American point guard to get his teammates going early in this matchup.
