Randy’s Free Pick
The UConn Huskies are the better team and capable of blowing the doors off here, but this line is a bit disrespectful. The Seton Hall Pirates are a competitive bunch that loses on the road by an average of just 1.5 points, and they're playing some of their most consistent ball lately. Lot of points for an early game. Give me the road dog.
