Marquette vs Uconn Betting Prediction

Here is our Marquette vs Uconn Betting prediction.

These two teams played each other in the Big East playoffs a year ago. This time, the league title is at stake in Madison Square Garden as the #3 Marquette Golden Eagles (25-8; 20-12-1 ATS) play the #1 UConn Huskies (30-3; 21-12-0 ATS). The third time the two schools have played each other will be at their meeting on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. EDT. The first game was 81–53 for UConn, and the second (on March 6) was 64–67 for UConn. What’s going to be different now that it’s bowl season?

Marquette Golden Eagles Betting Prediction

First, we have the Marquette vs Uconn Betting prediction for the Cyclones.

.On Friday, the Golden Eagles did not need overtime like they did on Thursday night. They led for almost the whole 40 minutes and won 79–68. Kam Jones led a team that made 53.3% of their three-point shots with 23 points and five assists. Only eight times did Marquette lose the ball.

The 13th-ranked Golden Eagles are doing all of this without Tyler Kolek, who was named to the All-BIG EAST First Team. Their attack scored 79.2 points per game, which was a lot like what they did on Friday. They made 48.4% of their shots from the field, 35.6% from beyond the hoop, and 70.8% of their free throws this season. This group made 10.2 mistakes per game and 8.9 offensive boards per game. Can they put together another good game after two bad ones against UConn during the regular season?

It was almost the same as the 69.8 points per game the Golden Eagles gave up this year when they held Procidence to 69 points. Their show on Thursday was just as good. This season, Marquette let opponents shoot 42.8% of the time, make 34.5% of their three-point shots, and try 15.8 free throws. With +4.9 turnovers, the Golden Eagles had the most in the Big East. This was mostly because they caused a conference-high 15.1 turnovers per game. Marquette had a -2.6 rebounding deficit. Let’s see how they do on Saturday night with all the lights on.

UConn Huskies Betting Prediction

Now we have the Marquette vs Uconn Betting prediction for the Cougars.

Good news for UConn: they scored 95 points to come back from being down seven points early in the game. They made 57.4% of their shots from the floor, including 50.0% of their threes, and only turned the ball over 10 times. The Huskies made 22 of 24 free throws. The defense did not force any mistakes, however, and St. John’s got 17 offensive rebounds. They also let 45.5% of their three-point shots go through. Overall, the 95–90 win was good enough, but it was scary for their defense.

KenPom’s rating and net rankings put this deep roster in second place in the country, which is good news because they have what might be the best attack in the country. Even though UConn played slowly this year, they scored 81.1 points per game, which was the most in the Big East. That’s two more conference-high marks: they made 49.2% of their shots from the field and 36.6% of their three-point shots. UConn also made 73.9% of their free throws, had 9.9 mistakes per game, and grabbed 12.2 offensive boards per game. Let’s see if they can get ahead again.

In defense of the Huskies, Friday can’t happen again if they want to do it again. It was a strong force for most of the season. Another Big East record, UConn only gave up 64.0 points per game. Their opponents could only make 39.8% of their field goals and 31.7% of their threes. Plus, those grades were better than those of every other Big East school. The teams that played UConn tried 18.8 free shots each game. The Huskies had great rebounds (+8.7 per game), and they also turned the ball over (+1.0 per game). This year, can they take it home?

Marquette vs Uconn Betting Pick

Before winning the national title a year ago, UConn’s most recent loss was to Marquette in the Big East Tournament. This team, which is probably the best in the country, has been carrying a picture of the Big East Tournament prize around with them all season. The Huskies have been dreaming about this game all season: they can finally win the hardware they missed in 2023. They can do it on Saturday night.

Now you know why UConn will win this game—they swept the Golden Eagles. Even more so now that Marquette won’t have Tyler Kolek back. The Huskies beat Marquette by 7 points even though Kolek wasn’t playing. When the Golden Eagles were all healthy, UConn beat them by 28 points in Hartford. Even though the odds are against them, the Huskies will win the Big East.
