UConn Huskies Betting Prediction

Here is the UConn vs Marquette Betting prediction for the Huskies.

Not long ago, the UConn Huskies were the best college basketball team.

This is the first time since 1999 that they’ve won the Big East Regular Season Title. They are also the National Champions again.

UConn just beat Seton Hall by 30 points, putting them ahead of Purdue and into second place, behind only Houston to claim the top spot.

If UConn plays well in the end, they should get a one-seed in the NCAA Tournament.

New player Stephon Castle got 21 points to help them beat Seton Hall.

Their boss is Tristen Newton, a senior guard who is 6’5″ and a guard. With 15.3 points per game, 7.1 rebounds per game, and 6.0 assists per game, he is the team leader in all three.

Against Seton Hall, he scored 17 points and passed the ball 10 times. His triple-double from the night before came against Villanova. He scored 10 points, grabbed 16 rebounds, and passed the ball 10 times.

Cam Spencer is one of the best shooters in the country. He is a senior and is 6’4″. This year he has made 76 three-pointers and hit 45.0% of them. Spencer averages 14.8 points and 4.5 rebounds per game. The junior forward Alex Karaban is 6’8 and can also shoot from outside.

Every game, he scores 13.9 points and grabs 5.1 boards. Junior center Donovan Clingan, who is 7’2″ and 280 pounds, gets 12.6 points and grabs 6.7 rebounds per game. Their new 6’6″ forward, Stephon Castle, gets another 11.3 points per game.

KenPom says that UConn is the second best team in the country right now. There is a big difference between how well they attack and how well they protect.

The rate at which they play is 332nd out of 362 Division I teams. That makes them one of the slowest teams in the country. New estimates say that the Huskies will be the best team in the East Region.

Marquette Golden Eagles Betting Prediction

Now we have the UConn vs Marquette Betting prediction for the Golden Eagles.

The Marquette The Golden Eagles looked like a JV team when UConn beat them by 28 points, even though they are one of the best football teams in college. Marquette had a hard time making three-point shots; out of 23 tries, they only made five.

They also lost the battle for rebounds 45–27. This evening, Marquette will honor their seniors with a celebration. They will want to do better this time against the Huskies. In their last game, which they lost to Creighton, guard Kam Jones got 23 points.

On Senior Night, the Golden Eagles’ best senior, point guard Tyler Kolek, won’t be able to play because he hurt his oblique. Only one other senior is on the team.

He is a 6’11”, 235-pound forward named Oso Ighodaro. The most points and rebounds on the team are his 14.0% and 7.3%, respectively.

In their last game, he scored 14 points against UConn. However, he needs to work better on the boards because he only got four. Ighodaro is sick and might not be able to play in this game.

For the season, 6’5 junior guard Kam Jones scores 16.1 points per game and makes 70 three-pointers, making 40.0% of his shots from deep.

Jones has scored 17 points or more in all four of his most recent games. He got 34 points in two of those games. David Joplin is the only one of them who has scored 10 or more points.

The junior forward, who is 6’8″, scores 11 points and grabs 3.6 rebounds per game.

KenPom says that Marquette is the 14th best team in the country right now. They are 18th in defense and 19th in attack.

Pace of play: 69th in the country; they play a lot faster than the Huskies.

It looks like Marquette will get a two-seed in the NCAA Tournament right now.

Marquette Golden Eagles Injury Report:

  • Out: Tyler Kolek (15.0 PPG, oblique)
  • Questionable: Oso Ighodaro (14.0 PPG, illness).

Best Bet for this Game

The only team that can ruin Senior Night is the UConn Huskies. Marquette might not even have a senior player when they play, so they will miss a very important part of senior night. Tyler Kolek can’t play in this game, even though he is a senior.

Marquette has lost a lot here. Marquette lost their last game by 8 points. They’ve never had that many people before this year. At point guard, Kolek is their boss, and the team wouldn’t be the same without him.

Some people say Oso Ighodaro is sick and might not be able to play in this game. In their last game, Marquette lost to UConn by a lot of points. If 6’11 Ighodaro can’t play, things will get even worse. People who are sick find it hard to play Donovan Clingan, even if Ighodaro is there.

With all of their top players, UConn is at full strength. Many of them will become pros in the future. Senior Night isn’t as exciting without the seniors, and UConn will try to lock up the top spot in the playoffs.
