Predictions and Odds between UConn vs. Creighton (Shots will happen in Omaha for both sides)

The UConn Huskies won five games in a row before entering the final week of the regular season and sought exact revenge against the Creighton Bluejays in Senior Night, who had been beaten 20 points by Providence in the previous Friday’s game. their.

A win for Creighton would be huge, as they will overtake UConn in the Big East rankings based on their previous season’s win and potentially raise multiple seeds in the upcoming conference tournament.

If Huskies are interested in the road business, they are definitely among the top three seeds.

Here are the latest odds at WynnBET Sportsbook:


Cash flow:


Dan Hurley’s roster is living their best at the most opportune moment of the season; win five games in a row and keep their chances slim of overtaking Villanova to become the No. 2 seed.

However, despite their impressive winning streak in a tough run, they didn’t cover the spread well, losing only 1-4 to ATS in their five straight wins.

I think the Bluejays, even at home, have a lot of flaws that make me step back against either team over numbers and focus instead on totals.

At first glance, Huskies seem very defensive; And it’s true. Via Analysis of CBBthey ranked in the 86th percentile for defensive rating (96.6) and 33rd in defensive adjusted KenPom.

However, UConn can also score. They have the 24 most effective fouls in college basketball and in their last 5 games they’ve shot in the net from 3-point range, scoring close to 40% and placing in the 99th percentile of all leagues. team.

For those who say it’s unsustainable (and you’d be right), UConn has averaged 36% from these 3 seasons, so a 4.6% gain over five game samples isn’t out of the question either. Creighton may be having a serious year falling short of their sharpshooting teams of the past, but they have continued to play fast (92th percentile pace) in the last few games and have been outstanding; 61.4% shot in paint and 92.6% when flashed fast.

I would expect a more frenetic pace for this game than the season-wide overall stats would suggest, giving their Round 2 match advantage the edge.

BASED ON: OVER 136 (-110)
