The Marquette Golden Eagles and UConn Huskies face off on Friday in a Big East conference college basketball showdown at Madison Square Garden. When these two teams faced off on February 7th it was UConn that secured the 87-72 victory. 

Marquette Betting Preview

Marquette comes into this game with a 26-6 record overall and they are coming off a victory on Thursday, although they got a little lucky doing so. Marquette scored 72 points against St. John’s and they were able to secure the two point victory in overtime. At halftime, they were down 36-26, but they made the comeback in the second half. Tyler Kolek had a strong game finishing with 19 points, nine rebounds, and six assists. Marquette is averaging 81 points while their defense is giving up 71.3 points per game. Kam Jones has been the top player for Marquette averaging 15.3 points while shooting 47.1 percent from the field and 36.7 percent from behind the three point line. 

UConn Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is UConn who sits with a 25-7 record overall and they are also coming off a win on Thursday. They almost blew the game against Providence but they were able to secure the 73-66 victory. Jordan Hawkins had a strong game for UConn finishing with 19 points and four rebounds. UConn is averaging 78.8 points while their defense is giving up 64.9 points per game. They looked impressive in the first half on Thursday, but they can’t take their foot off the gas in the second half. Adama Sanogo is averaging 16.9 points while shooting 58.6 percent from the field. 

Shane’s Free Pick

Both of these teams had one bad half on Thursday but the team I trust more is UConn. It seems Shaka Smart’s teams always start to tighten up the closer it gets to tournament time and they looked so awful in the first half. UConn is going to run up the score and they are going to win a shootout here. Back the Huskies. I also really like the over to cash.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
