The Connecticut Huskies are determined to clinch their 10th Big East victory of the current campaign. Their season has been inconsistent, particularly in conference play, where they currently hold a 9-7 record.

Their season average of 78 points places them 46th in the league, while they restrict opponents to an average of 64.3 points, ranking them 40th overall. In three of their last four matches, UConn has limited opponents to 62 points or fewer, showcasing their solid defense. As they aim for their 10th Big East victory, UConn will look to build on their recent success and continue to perform at a high level.

  • The Connecticut Huskies are 5-10 ATS in their last 15 matches.
  • The Huskies are 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches.

#20 Providence Friars vs 18 UConn Huskies. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #20 Providence Friars. The Providence Friars, who are vying for the top spot in the Big East, secured back-to-back victories by defeating #19 Creighton and dominating Villanova last Saturday. Connecticut’s inconsistent 9-7 record in conference play serves as evidence of their lack of stability. Additionally, Providence is just as effective on offense as UConn, averaging 116.2 points¬†per 100 possessions compared to UConn’s 117.9 points. Recently, UConn has struggled to put points on the board, which will make it difficult to cover this significant spread. They have scored 68 points or less in three of their last four games. In their first match-up, they struggled against Providence, shooting only 36% overall. The #20 Providence Friars are expected to win with a predicted score of 76-70.
