Big East action sees the St. John’s Red Storm on the road to face the UCONN Huskies on Wednesday, January 12th.
The tip-off is set for 8:30 ET from Gampel Pavilion.
The Huskies started off as an 11 point favorite and that number is now up to 11.5. The total has gone from 145 to 150.
St. John’s Red Storm
Other teams in the Big East, such as Xavier or Villanova may be getting talked about more, but this St. John’s team deserves some credit as well. Thus far, they have played pretty well and I do think they can sustain that play as the year goes on.
The Red Storm did drop to the Providence Friars on Saturday by a score of 83-73. Even though it was not the outcome they would have looked for, they can take some positives in the loss to a very talented and well-coached team.
One thing that this team has to do a better job of is playing well against the stout competition. I know there is still a long season ahead of them, but they have not exactly played all that well when when they have faced better than average teams. They will get a chance to face one of those teams on Wednesday when they travel to Connecticut.
These guys let the second half get away from in the loss to the Friars, as they were actually leading by three points at the end of the first half. However, they got outscored by a 48-38 margin in the second, which just simply cannot happen, even against the really good programs.
When you look at the whole, UCONN has played well this year, but we all know they could be playing a lot better. They really have not been all that impressive as of late, but they can definitely get back on track, as they have lots of skilled players and a good coach.
The Huskies come into this ball game with a record of 10-4. Getting a win over the Red Storm will be no easy task for them on Wednesday, but it is one that they really have got to have.
They lost to the Seton Hall Pirates on Saturday in overtime by a score of 90-87. Those are always the sorts of losses that burn a team, but I do not think that defeat will get to them. I expect them to put it behind them and be prepared for St. John’s.
The offense was quite effective for them in their last game, as five players reached double figures. The leading scorer was Adama Sanogo, who had 18 points and 16 rebounds. RJ Cole also added in 15 points, 4 dimes, and 4 boards.

Although both of these teams have been good in terms of wins and losses, they could be playing better than they have been. I expect them to come out sharp and play a complete game on Wednesday.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: St. John’s ATS
The Huskies have not played at home in a little while, but it did not go so well for them when they did last time. They will look for that result to be better, but it will be no cake walk against a solid Red Storm club.
In this spot, I do feel that Connecticut is the better team and they will get the job done, but I expect this to be a hard fought game. St. John’s is not the type of team that you just take lightly.
The 11.5 is too much for me to lay with the Huskies. I am not totally sold on them being able to slow down a good offense in the Red Storm, so I can see this game being closer than some might think. I would say UCONN gets the win, but the Red Storm cover this number.
My play is on St. John’s catching the 11.5 points at Gampel.
