Miami improved to 22-14 ATS while advancing to the Final Four with an 88-81 win over Texas while shooting 59 percent, but making only two 3-pointers. The Hurricanes got to the foul line and went 28-for-32 compared to 11-for-15 for the Longhorns. That is the type of play that will derail Connecticut's current run of eight wins in nine games. The Hurricanes have averaged 81.3 points per game in the NCAA Tournament, including a grind-it-out 63-56 victory over Drake and the defense comes through in crunch time as illustrated against Texas when the Longhorns missed 10 of 15 shots from the field in the final 10 minutes. Connecticut enjoyed an impressive win over Gonzaga, but this will be the Huskies' toughest test following earlier games against Iona, Saint Mary's and Arkansas. Miami is 23-9-1 ATS versus teams with winning records and it has plenty of scorers. Jordan Miller had 27 points to lead five double-figure scorers against Texas. UConn has gone UNDER six of its past eight games and 5-2 UNDER on neutral courts and the Huskies allow 64.4 points per game. However, Miami showed against Drake that it can win a lower scoring contest. Take Miami and the UNDER.
