Against The Spread Pick
UCF is far from the level of success they saw last season, but that won’t stop them from trying to take down the UConn Huskies at XL Center. The Golden Knights are 3-2 in their last five games, while the Huskies have won two of their last three. That includes a three-point win against Memphis three games ago. Central Florida is 2-6 ATS in its last eight games against Connecticut. The Huskies have won 11 of their last 13 at home. UCF has three-straight wins over UConn, but this is their first meeting since last season. The most recent clash saw the Huskies cover a seven-point spread. The Golden Knights have had plenty of struggles when visiting the XL Center, and that is why taking the Huskies to cover nine points is the right move.
Over Under Pick
In three of the Golden Knights’ last four games, they have been able to score at least 74 points. UConn has been a consistent scoring team for much of the season and five of their last six games have resulted in over totals. Those five games all resulted in totals well over 132 points. The last time the Golden Knights and Huskies faced-off it resulted in a 140-point total as UCF escaped with a 73-67 victory. An over 134.5 total seems quite reachable for both teams.
