Record 35-37.

Chewing on UConn + points tonight. 

Like Cincy yesterday, think wrong team is favored. Boatright and Napier will be a problem for Golden Eagles and just like the passion their playing with under Ollie. Marquette is tough at home but road team has won last 3 SU...

Thoughts?

I'm a UConn alumni and I like Marquette.  This will be the hardest game UConn has played this season imo.  Marquette shoots the ball pretty well ranked 24th in the nation in FG%, and UConn is a horrible rebounding team now that Oriaki has xferred to Mizzou, ranking 310th nationally in rebounds per game.  I think the better shooting Golden Eagles, getting more rebounds, will eventually wear down UConn.  Of course I hope I'm wrong.

I like UConn here too.  Marquette isnt the same team as last year and I these players seem to have taken to Ollie.  Give me the guards of UConn here.

Agree with Pasteur here. Marquette will be all over the offensive boards. UConn has been a nice story so far but this Marquette team will be tough to stop on the offensive end. This is also the first road game of the year for UConn. The only reason I am laying off the Eagles is because I am a little scared of turnover issues for Marquette. I think UConn's best bet is to turn up the pressure and try to turn them over and I could see this Marquette team giving it up quite a bit.

I like UConn, stats point to UConn in practically every category except rebounds.  Marquette's shooting percentage is a little inflated in that they don't take many 3s (that killed Pitt yesterday) Just my take.

Like UConn and the under

Yeah UConn's ability to rebound the ball is the only thing that worries me here. Been at work all day...line now down to 5.5.  Gonna see if it goes back to 6, so I can buy the 1/2 if I play it.
