Connecticut Huskies vs. Marquette Golden Eagles. The NCAAB Pick for this game is Connecticut +1.5. Connecticut is one of the better teams in the Big East this season with James Bouknight in their roster as he averages 23.2 points per match. Marquette, on the other hand, made a good impression after beating Wisconsin and Creighton but marked only 2-3 in the Big East. The Golden Eagles are a very young team against a much-experienced team like the Huskies and that would make a difference in this match-up. Final Score Prediction, the Connecticut Huskies will win and cover ATS at 72-70.
