3* ESPN2 Big Monday SMASH on UConn -5
West Virginia is 0-8 all-time at Connecticut, losing by an average of 15.0 points. Plus, the Huskies, who will be motivated by back-to-back upset defeats on the road, are 9-0 at home this season where they are winning by 16.4 points.
The fact WVU enters off back-to-back SU and ATS wins actually bodes well for us. The Mountaineers are just 1-8 ATS in road games after 2 or more consecutive wins over the last 2 seasons and 1-8 ATS in road games after 2 straight wins by 10 points or more over the last 3 seasons. In addition, they are 0-6 ATS in road games after successfully covering the spread in 2 or more consecutive games over the last 2 seasons, losing these contests by an average of 7.8 points. We'll lay the points.
