College Basketball Betting Trends

Florida State

The Seminoles are 6-1-1 ATS in their last eight Saturday games. The over is 6-2 in the last eight FSU Saturday games.

UConn

The over is 16-5 in the last 21 Huskies games overall. Connecticut is 4-1 ATS in its last five games overall.

Prediction:

UConn played a pair of neutral court games last night against a pair of quality opponents in Syracuse and Iowa, splitting the two contests. While Florida State is the better team, chances are the Huskies will have more fans in the stands. UConn has only looked poor once this season and that was in the back-to-back against Iowa. Look for the Huskies to keep this one entertaining and cover the spread as the dogs.
