We've made money on UConn in both games this torunament and the lines seem to be getting shorter and shorter despite the constant blowouts. Only four of the Huskies last 15 games have been decided by 25 or less points. When you add the fact this game is still being played in Connecticut, it's a cakewalk for these girls.
Look for another Huskies' blowout, as the Bulldogs aren't deep enough to hang with UConn.
