I like this matchup. Arizona is definitely the better team but they have shown that is not always meaning they will win.
UConn is a brand name program for sure but it is hard to know what to make of them at the moment. This would be big for them.
The Huskies are a work in progress. They were not favoured in any of their losses but they have been a disappointing spread team at 1-6 ATS. This is their last chance to prove something in the nonconference.
Jaylen Adams is next in the long line of scoring points for the Huskies. He is averaging 19ppg and almost never leaves the court.
Terry Larrier may look like he is going to break in half but he is a capable scorer. If only he would use his length on defense and on the boards.
Normally the Huskies have an eraser at the rim but they don’t this season. That deficit will be very obvious against an Arizona team that has bigs that can score.
Those back to back to back losses in the Bahamas may forever remain a mystery. They haven’t lost since and have nice wins over Texas A&M, Alabama and UNLV.
Top scorer Alonzo Trier left their last game with a knee injury. He is questionable. They can win without him but you will want to know what his status is before making any plays.
DeAndre Ayton makes college basketball look very easy. He is super athletic for his size and is averaging 20/12. He can dominate any matchup.
While the Huskies lack their usual inside presence on defense the Wildcats have two 7 footers who can score. Dusan Ristic can also cause problems for UConn.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Under is 19-9 in UCONN last 28 Thu. games.
- ARIZ are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 Thu. games.
- Over is 11-5-1 in ARIZ last 17 overall.
Free Connecticut Huskies vs. Arizona Wildcats NCAAB Prediction:
Trier is a factor but as per above this team has the depth to win without him.
Jaylen Adams is often the best player on the floor. If that happens in this matchup and they don’t get pounded inside they have a chance.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: UCONN ATS
I think Adams will play well but he will realize he does not have the supporting cast to get what would be a huge win.
NCAAB Free Score Prediction: Arizona 84 – Connecticut 74
