As the last two years have shown us in the Big East Tournament, anything can happen. Last year seven-seed Louisville got hot and won the Big East Tournament, and the year before it was nine-seed Connecticut.

Will another middle seed get hot and win this year, or will the chalk prevail?

These three teams will see their first action on Thursday in the quarterfinals, along with No. 4 Pittsburgh (+575).

The other first round game Tuesday pits No. 14 DePaul (+125000) against No. 11 Rutgers (+32500). DePaul finished with the worst record in the conference at 2-16 SU, but did pick up one of those two conference wins against Rutgers in a 75-69 home win last month.

In the second round on Wednesday, No. 9 Cincinnati (+3000) is slated to play No. 8 Providence (+6000). Cincinnati is 3-1 SU and 2-2 ATS in its last four games against Providence, but lost in their one meeting this season at Providence.

-------------------------------

The Big East produced last year’s college basketball champion and Syracuse would like to make it two in a row in this year’s March Madness.

But first they need to perform in the conference tournament, and the Big East odds favor the Orange heavily. They opened as +120 favorites at 5Dimes, with Marquette the second betting choice at +300.

DePaul, which is expected to lose Tuesday in the tournament’s first game against UConn, is the biggest longshot at +7500. UConn is 7-1 SU against the Blue Demons and has beaten them by at least 20 points the past three meetings.

Big East betting tips off at noon on Tuesday with No. 16 DePaul facing the No. 9 Huskies. The defending national champs are favored here but a +4000 longshot to win the conference title at Madison Square Garden.

No. 13 Pittsburgh faces No. 12 St. John's (the Panthers are 6-1 SU and ATS in seven recent games against the Red Storm) and No. 15 Providence battles No. 10 Seton Hall on Tuesday afternoon. The Friars are just 1-6 ATS in their past seven games vs. the Pirates of Seton Hall.

The final game of Day 1 of the Big East Tournament pits No. 14 Villanova against No. 11 Rutgers. While there are no point spread trends of consequence, the total has been money in the bank when these team meet (past 10 meetings all played OVER the total).
