Wichita State vs. Connecticut Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Wichita State vs. Connecticut 12/30/17

How will No. 8 Wichita State fare in its American Athletic Conference debut when it goes on the road to face Connecticut today at Noon ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Wichita State is favored on the road, as the Shockers are getting odds of -10 points against Connecticut. The over/under total for the game has been set at 143.5 points. Today’s game takes place from the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut and will air live on CBS.

Wichita State has won two straight since a loss to Oklahoma. The Shockers are 10-2 entering conference play. They have failed to cover in their last three games and are 4-6 against the spread this season. Wichita State is averaging 85.8 points per game this season while allowing 70.8 per contest. Landry Shamet is leading the team with 17.1 points per game while Darral Willis Jr. is adding 12.8 points and 7.5 rebounds per contest.

Connecticut is coming off back-to-back losses to Auburn and Arizona to fall to 7-5 on the season. The Huskies have struggled at the betting window, posting a 2-7 record against the spread this year. UConn is putting up just 70 points per game on offense while allowing 73.1 per contest. Jalen Adams is putting up 18.2 points and 4.3 rebounds per contest while Terry Larrier is adding 15.5 points and 5.3 rebounds per contest.

Bet on Wichita State vs. Connecticut

Connecticut won the last meeting between these two in 2010. However, 2010 was a long time ago. Both teams are struggling at the betting window right now, but Connecticut is struggling more than the Shockers. The Huskies are just 6-20 against the spread in their last 26 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last six AAC games. The public betting is split for this game, but I think Wichita State will have too much on both sides of the ball for Connecticut to deal with.
