Against The Spread Pick

This isn’t the same UConn Huskies team as year’s past, but this is a team that is fighting with the players they have. In their last game against Wichita State they forced overtime, but couldn’t get the job done. One big positive from that game was just how many people stepped up. Five players scored at least 12 points in that game, and that should help with the confidence. There is no doubt the Wildcats are a good team, but this is a game the Huskies can keep close. The road team is 6-1-1 against the spread in the last eight games played between the two teams. Back the Huskies to cash in this game..

Over Under Pick

This isn’t a total there is a whole lot of value with, but with the way both offenses are playing, the over is the play. On the season the Wildcats are averaging 75.7 points while UConn is averaging 72.2 points. These are two defenses who are giving up at least 66 points over the last five games. Both offenses should be able to attack the defenses and push this total up. The better play is with the side, but if you need to bet it, the play is with the over.
