Oddsmakers are giving Marquette a fairly large edge over Vermont in this first-round matchup. However, the Catamounts should fare better than currently expected.

Vermont enters the tournament riding high on a 15-game winning streak. While the competition is expected to be a notch above those in the American East, head coach John Becker clearly has a formula that works and that the players have bought into.

Marquette vs Vermont Best Bets

Over 144 Total Points (-110) | DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 2 Units

As I mentioned earlier, Vermont is entering Friday’s matchup on a large winning streak. The same can be said for Marquette, which won nine straight games leading into the Big Dance itself.

Both offenses are firing on all cylinders and excel in different areas than the other. For instance, the Golden Eagles dominate at the rim and in transition.

On the other hand, Vermont ranked 67th in three-point shooting this season.

Both teams should be able to get their offenses off, and you can expect a high-scoring affair in return.

Vermont +9.5 (+105) | DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

For a riskier play, Vermont to cover 9.5, rather than 11, is a feasible option that could prove profitable.

The Catamounts should have all the confidence in the world heading into Friday’s game. Should their shooters get hot, it would not come as a surprise that they not only cover, but win.

Marquette vs Vermont SGP

For a risky, but reasonable play, consider this SGP as a potential long shot for Friday afternoon’s contest.

This will obviously be very dependent on Vermont playing well, but not enough to go Over 72.5. Vermont averaged 74.8 PPG this season.
