Memphis Tigers vs. UConn Huskies Gambling & NCAA Handicapping Prediction

Memphis vs Connecticut CBB Picks

Both of these teams are into the tournament so this is just a game to determine seeding and to answer which team has the better group of guards. Memphis may have the Huskies in terms of depth but on talent you might want to go with Connecticut. [ad-4468020]

Memphis

Either way these are two pretty evenly matched teams. The Tigers may have a chip on their shoulder having lost to UConn twice this season – though they both have the same conference record.

As Memphis heads into this tournament and that other one next week I am looking for Michael Dixon to step forward.

He was always fearless at Mizzou but I think he has been trying to blend with these Tigers. For them to be really good they need him to be more aggressive, especially driving the ball as he almost never misses a free throw.

As a senior he has to see the sand slipping through the hourglass and have some urgency.

In a single possession ball game it is difficult to decide which team is the better value. Memphis lost to UConn twice but even though this is a tournament game the Tigers will have the advantage of a home crowd. I am guessing that could be enough to put them over the top

Connecticut

UConn is in a tough spot where they almost have to win this one – not to make it to the tournament but for their own confidence. Last weekend they got absolutely embarrassed by Louisville and if they lose this one they will go into the tournament about as cold as could be with the losses and layoff.

Even though Memphis is no easy out they are probably liking their chances given they have beaten them twice already this season.

Shabazz Napier is all everything for the Huskies leading the team in scoring, rebounding and assists. However, if the Huskies are going to do well this weekend or next they are going to need more from forward DeAndre Daniels.

He just didn’t take that step this season and they need his all around game to take some of the pressure off Shabazz. Daniels and solid rebounding from Amida Bromah is what they need to challenge the best teams.

With a great backcourt and one of college basketball’s best closers it is easy to like UConn in an underdog role. I think they are going to be kind of desperate in this one and we should see one of the best games in any tournament this week.

It will have Madness level intensity.

Spread Pick: Memphis -3
O/U Pick: N/A
Score Prediction: Memphis 74 – Connecticut 69
