We know Baylor is a great team and is one of those teams that could give UConn some trouble if they were to meet. However, Florida State isn't a pushover as we saw against Texas A&M. The Seminoles have playmakers and will be a tough out if they can continue to knock down their threes.
I really like the value of FSU and the points, as there's potential for an upset here.
