This Thursday March 24th, 2011 the Honda Center - Anaheim, CA will receive the Connecticut Huskies and the San Diego State Aztecs to battle in the Sweet Sixteen betting.
After entering a record 11 teams in this year’s tourney, the mighty Big East is now down to a measly two. And with this conference 1-8 ATS as favorites of less than seven points in this round, and 1-9 ATS as a pick or favorite of four or less points from the Sweet 16 out, it may be down to none by the time the weekend rolls around.
Connecticut Huskies and the San Diego State Aztecs are currently PK at Bodog sportsbook and the total is set at 128.5.
With Marquette a healthy underdog to Carolina, the Huskies are the league’s best chance to save some face.
Keep a close eye on the line as it may very well tell the story tonight in Anaheim. The Aztecs are on a nice little SU and ATS run and in his career, Connecticut head coach Jim Calhoun is like the little girl with the curls when facing teams off three straight wins and covers.
If the veteran head coach is a dog against these teams, he sports a moneymaking 6-2 SU and 7-1 ATS mark. However, if ol’ Jimmy shows up at pick or a favorite of two or less points, that number falls to a winless 0-4 SU and ATS. San Diego State HC Steve Fisher, meanwhile, is a solid 7-1 SU from the Sweet Sixteen through the Final Four.
And while his Aztecs are 0-3 SU and ATS versus the Big East under his lead, we feel the No. 9 Defensive Field Goal Percentage (39.2) squad in the land with its five returning starters will put this underachieving conference out of its misery. The site strongly favors the Aztecs – and so do we.
