Connecticut at Villanova NCAA Pick

UConn Hoops

The Connecticut Huskies will visit Villanova Pavilion to take on the Villanova Wildcats February 20 in a Big East matchup. Both teams have enjoyed much better seasons in the past but the Huskies are trying to play their way into a berth in the NCAA tournament. UConn has an overall record of 16-10 and is 10th in the Big East. Their only hope at making the tournament would be winning the Big East Tournament.

The Huskies are led in scoring by Jeremy Lamb who is averaging 17.3 points per game. Shabazz Napier chips in with 13 point per game and leads the team with 5.8 assists per game. The team’s rebounding is very balanced but Andre Drummond is the leader in that department with 7.4 boards per game.

The Wildcats are struggling at 11-15 and are playing the spoiler at this point in the year. Maalik Wayns lead them in scoring with an average of 17.8 per game. He is also the team leader in assists with 4.5 per contest. Mouphtaou Yarou who is averaging 8.2 a game leads the rebounding chores.

UConn is only 1-7 ATS in their last eight road games. They are also just 16 SU in their last seven road games. UConn is only 1-4 ATS in their last five games playing at Villanova. Nevertheless, Villanova is only 4-11 SU in their last 15 games against UConn.

Head to head UConn is 7-3 SU and 3-6-1 ATS in the last ten games between the two schools. Over the last five games UConn is just 2-3 SU including losses to Syracuse and Louisville. The Wildcats are just 1-4 SU over their last five games and have lost to Notre Dame, Pittsburgh and Marquette during that stretch.

Look for a tough low scoring defensive struggle with UConn winning SU. The total should be UNDER as both clubs have a tough time scoring many points. Currently UConn is -2.
