1 unit on SMU +2.5 (-105) (risk 1 to return 1.95) RESULT: LOSS
SMU has won and covered four of the last five meetings and the Mustangs have won eight of their last nine games overall following Friday's 74-65 victory over Tulane. Meanwhile, Dan Hurley's first season as coach at Connecticut has hit a rough spot as his team has lost three in a row while not coming close to covering any of them. The Huskies shot just 32.2 percent in their 65-53 loss to Central Florida on Saturday while allowing the Knights to shoot a .571 field goal percentage. SMU held the Green Wave to 34.4 percent shooting and was led by Jahmal McMurray, who scored 25 points and Jimmy Whitt Jr. added 11 points and 11 rebounds. UConn is 2-9 ATS its last 11 conference games dating to last season and 1-5 ATS its last six games overall and 0-6 ATS its last six versus a team with a .600 or better winning percentage. Play SMU.
