UConn Huskies Betting Prediction

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

Recently, the UConn Huskies have been the best college basketball team. They just won the Big East Regular Season Title for the first time since 1999, and they are again the National Champions.

UConn just beat Seton Hall by 30 points, moving them ahead of Purdue in the rankings to second place, second only to Houston. UConn is expected to get a one seed in the NCAA Tournament if they finish strong. Stephon Castle, a rookie, scored 21 points to help them beat Seton Hall.

The Huskies’ 6’5 senior guard Tristen Newton is their leader. He leads the team in points, rebounds, and assists with 15.3 PPG, 7.1 RPG, and 6.0 APG. He scored 17 points and passed the ball 10 times against Seton Hall. The night before, against Villanova, he had a triple-double with 10 points, 16 rebounds, and 10 assists.

As a 6’4 senior, Cam Spencer is one of the best shooters in the country. He has made 76 three-pointers this year, hitting 45.0%. Spencer scores 14.8 points per game and gets 4.5 rebounds per game on average. Alex Karaban is a junior forward who is 6’8 and can also shoot from outside.

He averages 13.9 points per game and 5.1 rebounds per game. Donovan Clingan, their 7’2″, 280-pound sophomore center, scores 12.6 points per game and grabs 6.7 rebounds per game. Stephon Castle, their 6’6″ rookie forward, scores another 11.3 points per game.

Marquette Golden Eagles Betting Prediction

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

In the Marquette When UConn beat the Golden Eagles by 28, they looked like a JV team, even though they are one of the best college basketball teams. Marquette struggled from three-point range and only made five of their 23 attempts.

They also lost the fight for rebounds 45–27. Marquette will have a ceremony for their seniors tonight, and they will want to do better against the Huskies this time. Guard Kam Jones scored 23 points in their last game, which they lost to Creighton.

The Golden Eagles’ best senior, point guard Tyler Kolek, is still out with an oblique injury and won’t be able to celebrate Senior Night. 6’11”, 235-pound forward Oso Ighodaro is the only other senior on the team. He scores 14.0 PPG and 7.3 RPG, which is the most on the team.

The last time they played, he scored 14 points against UConn, but he needs to be harder on the boards because he only got four. Ighodaro might not be able to play in this game because he is sick. Kam Jones, a 6’5 junior guard, averages 16.1 points per game and is the best shot on the team with 70 made threes on 40.0% shooting from deep.

Jones has scored 17 points or more in each of his last four games. In two of those games, he scored 34 points. David Joplin is their only player to score in double figures. The 6’8 junior forward gets 11.0 points per game and 3.6 rebounds per game.

KenPom currently ranks Marquette as the 14th best team in the country. They are 19th in how well they attack and 18th in how well they defend. Ranking 69th in the country in pace of play, they play a lot faster than the Huskies. Right now, Bracketology says that Marquette will get a two-seed in the NCAA Tournament.

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 UConn Huskies are the only team that can ruin the magic of Senior Night. Marquette will be missing a very important part of senior night; they might not even have a senior player when they play. Tyler Kolek won’t be able to play in this game, and it doesn’t matter if he is a senior or not. This is a huge loss for Marquette. In their last game, Marquette was an 8-point loser. That is the biggest number they have had all year. Kolek is their boss at point guard, and this team is not the same without him.

Some say that Oso Ighodaro is sick and might not be able to play in this game. Marquette lost to UConn badly on the boards in their last game. Things will get even worse if 6’11 Ighodaro can’t play. It’s hard to play Donovan Clingan when you’re not feeling well, even if Ighodaro plays.

UConn is at full strength, and all over their starting group are players who will become pros in the future. There is less of a thrill to Senior Night without the seniors, and UConn will try to secure the top place in the tournament.
