💎UCONN -6.5 -110 ( 2u )

  • This will be a very exciting championship game! It’s been a long time since we seen two dominant teams like this meet in the championship! I can understand why some would lean toward the points with Purdue because they have Edey. But what I can’t understand why people think he will be the best player on the floor in this game tonight. Dont get me wrong, Edey is a problem but Donovan Clingan is on the court also and is the best player in this game in my opinion! UConn has simply been a force of nature these last two seasons and while everybody has been getting cute betting against the Huskies and talking trash, our tickets keep cashing. UConn has covered 9 of its last 10 games and is a ridiculous 27-12 ATS on the season. During these last two NCAA Tournaments, UConn is 11-0 SU and 11-0 ATS, with an average win margin of 22 points. This is a historic run we're seeing from UConn, and it's to the point you should probably blindly back the hot hand. Also, the Huskies also have size and shot blockers in Donovan Clingan and Samson Johnson that are sure going to give Edey all he can handle. Give me UConn to win back to back national titles and go 12-0 ATS during the run as well! This has to be the play! UConn cuts the nets and will be cashing us out at the same time!
