College Hoops Preview: Huskies vs. Bulldogs (Dec. 20)

NCAA Betting Connecticut vs Gonzaga

The Connecticut Huskies travel to a neutral site to take on the Gonzaga Bulldogs. Gonzaga was ranked fourth in the nation until getting upset by the Arizona Wildcats last week. It doesn’t matter, really, since it’s so early in the season the Bulldogs are still finding out about themselves. Gonzaga is a very good team. They are, without a doubt, the best team on the west coast right now. They have a 9 and 1 straight-up record and are 5 and 2 against the BetUS Sportsbook betting online betting spread. Gonzaga has already bounced back from their lone loss by beating Texas Southern by 42 points.

The Connecticut Huskies are ranked second in the nation and are undefeated at 9 and 0. But sports betting fans run into an issue with the Huskies. Even though they are 9 and 0 straight-up, Connecticut is only 2 and 2 against the BetUS online wagering spread. The best team that UConn has played so far this season are the Wisconsin Badgers. This is Connecticut’s first real test.

Here are my personal online betting odds for this game:

Connecticut Huskies + 2 ½ – 110 Ev O 162 ½
Gonzaga Bulldogs – 2 ½ – 110 – 120 U 162 ½

Here are a few online wagering trends that might help us find a good online bet in this game:

The Connecticut Huskies are 4 and 17 against the spread in their last 21 games at a neutral site.
The Over is 8 and 2 in the Connecticut Huskies last 10 games overall.
The Gonzaga Bulldogs are 4 and 0 against the spread in their last 4 games versus a team from the Big East.
The Under is 6 and 1 in the Gonzaga Bulldogs last 7 games overall.
The Huskies haven’t been tested and because of that I don’t see how they go off the favorite in this game.

Gonzaga, to me, even though they have a loss, are the better team at this point in the season because they’ve had to play Arizona and Washington State on the road and they’ve already beaten Indiana, Tennessee and Maryland. That’s five top schools that the Bulldogs have had to face already this season.

This will be Connecticut’s first real college basketball team they have faced this season after Wisconsin.

Yes, Connecticut is loaded but so is Gonzaga. I have to go with the Bulldogs in this one. I’m gong to hope that the BetUS online sportsbook odds makers don’t read this article and make the Bulldogs an underdog on the money line tomorrow morning.

UConn vs. Gonzaga Prediction:

If they do, then I will be ecstatic! I like Gonzaga to beat Connecticut straight-up on the BetUS online college basketball betting money line. If the Bulldogs end up the favorite in the BetUS online sportsbook, then I like Gonzaga to cover against the spread.
