This Sunday match-up will see the Tulsa Golden Hurricane take on the UConn Huskies. Neither team is ranked, yet Tulsa is a team picking up steam and trying to make a case for the Big Dance.
Tulsa Golden Hurricane
The Golden Hurricane have a decent overall record this year, but it is conference play where they are starting to take over. They are 5-1 against American Athletic opponents, including a 80-40 win over a ranked Memphis team this past week. This was a huge boost to their overall resume, but they must keep it rolling against a below average Huskies squad.
Offensively, the Golden Hurricane are certainly not a powerhouse. They average just 70.8 points per game. Leading the way in scoring is Brandon Rachal. He averages 14.8 points per game and 6.5 rebounds per game. Behind him is Jeriah Horne, who averages 12.2 points per game. Last time out against Memphis, Horne dropped 21, so he is capable of having a huge game.
Now defense has been a different story as the Golden Hurricane have shut teams down for the most part. Overall, this team allows an average of 63.7 points per game. More impressively, they allow just 53.8 points per game in their six conference games. They are also a top 15 team defending the three, allowing 28.3%.
The Huskies are starting to really struggle, having lost three games in a row. Most recently they lost to Houston, 63-59. With a conference record of just 1-5, the Huskies will likely have to make a run in the conference tournament to even be considered for an at-large bid.
UConn is not known for their scoring this season, averaging just 70.6 points per game. They shoot the ball at 41.9% from the field and 32.8% from the three-point line.
The Huskies do not have many elite scoring threats, as their leading guy is the only one that is averaging double figures. They do have four guys who average between 9.4 and 9.6 points per game, so they still have some balance in this offense.
Defensively, the Huskies have been for the most part solid this entire season. They allow an average of 64.4 points per game. This ranks 64th in the country. Teams are shooting just 39.6% against them, and they rank 44th in this category.
Now in AAC games, the Huskies are allowing 71 points per game. This is a big reason why I am hesitant to trust them here.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Under is 6-2 in TLSA last 8 road games.
- Under is 7-2 in CONN last 9 games as a favorite.
- Tulsa are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games.
- Tulsa are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against Connecticut.
Free Tulsa Golden Hurricane vs. UConn Huskies NCAAB Prediction:
Tulsa proved they can play as an underdog when they absolutely crushed Memphis in their last game. Connecticut does not really scare me and they have not been playing well as of late, so I will take the points and Tulsa in this game.
