UConn Huskies vs Providence Friars. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Providence Friars. The Friars triumphed in eight straight at home and seven straight overall. They excel offensively, particularly at home where they average over 87 points a contest while hitting over 50% of their shots. They did an excellent job of regaining possession of the ball, and they are very active on the offensive glass, collecting more than 12 offensive rebounds per game, which will increase their opportunities to score. They also did a decent job of guarding the ball at home and won’t provide many easy-scoring opportunities for the Huskies. The Huskies were strong on defense, but they struggled recently, allowing more than 73 points per game in their last three contests. They will find it difficult to slow down the hot-shooting Friars. The Huskies also performed admirably, sweeping 14 of their first 15 games and suffering just one road defeat. While they were effective offensively thus far, scoring 75 points per game on the road, they were not as effective. Anticipate them to have a few extra scoring opportunities against the Friars since their rebounding declined recently. Choose Providence to cover the spread because they restrict opponents to under 68 points per game at home and will restrain UConn’s offense. The Providence Friars will win to a predicted score of 74-68.
