Pick: Marquette +5.5 (-120)

This will be the second regular season meeting of the season between the Connecticut Huskies and the Marquette Golden Eagles here on Wednesday night in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. These two teams met just a couple weeks ago and it was the defending national champions, Connecticut that blew out Marquette and they will look for a second consecutive blowout victory against Marquette here on Wednesday night as well. Meanwhile, Marquette will look to make it much closer this time around and keep their hopes alive at grabbing a number one seed in the NCAA tournament in the process. This game could be a potential preview of the Big East conference tournament finals with the way these two teams have performed this season.

The defending national champions have put together an incredible season. They have spent the majority of the year ranked as the number one team in the country. They are sitting alone in first place, in what is arguably the hardest conference, and all of college basketball this season. They are almost a near lock to grab a number one seed, if not the number one overall seed in the NCAA tournament on Selection Sunday as long as they have a strong finish of the season. They have already picked up one blowout victory against Marquette this season and now they will go for their second win in a couple weeks. 

As they look to cap off the regular season with another huge victory here on Wednesday night. Connecticut comes into this game as winners of 26 out of 29 games on the year and they will look to keep them on minimum rolling here on Wednesday night. This feels like a much-needed win for the Huskies if they want to cement their status as a number one seat in the NCAA tournament and as one of the top teams in the country in the process. Connecticut should have no problem playing against Marquette after the blowout they handed them a couple weeks ago but they will be in store for a much tougher environment on the road rather than at home here on Wednesday as well.

Marquette has put together a respectable season, but their blowout loss to Connecticut a couple weeks ago has to have left an awful taste in their mouth. They will look to bounce back from that and grab the upset win here at home against the defending national champions on Wednesday night. They have been very tough to beat at home this season, and they will look to keep that narrative true with another solid performance in what feels like a must win game for them.

They come into this game with slim hopes of grabbing a number one seed in the NCAA tournament, but they will likely need to win out the rest of the way to accomplish that goal. They come into this one with 22 victories through their first 29 games of the season and they have been very competitive in the toughest conference and all the college basketball this season. as they have secured themselves a top four finish and some byes coming into the conference tournament after their strong performance throughout the year. The Golden Eagles come into this game on a one game, losing streak, that they will look to snap with a win here in this one. As they had a three game-winning streak, snapped by their lost to Creighton on the road in Omaha the last time they took the floor. 

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Marquette is 11-4 at home against the spread 

- Marquette is 4-2 against ranked opponents ATS

- Marquette is 17-11 against the spread 

I expect this to be a back-and-forth game throughout the entire entirety of the contest here on Wednesday night in Milwaukee. In the end I look for the Marquette Golden Eagles to cover the five and a half point spread against the defending national champions. Marquette has been a much better team at home this season then they have been on the road and I look for that to be a major factor in the outcome of this game on Wednesday night against Connecticut.
