Uconn vs San Diego State West Odds

Many bettors feel Kemba Walker gives UConn a slight edge over San Diego State regardless of the rest of the players and regardless of the point spread.

But the spread reflects the close nature of this West Region Sweet 16 battle with the MWC champion Aztecs opening as 1-point favorites behind their big front court, but the betting swung to UConn. It's the 2-seed Aztecs vs the 3-seed Huskies in this one with the winner facing Duke or Arizona.

San Diego State needed two OTs to beat Temple, while UConn cruised through the first round barely breaking a sweat.
