Florida State Vs. UConn Predictions – NCAA College Basketball Picks | Betting Odds
One of the most interesting games of the weekend will be played at the Prudential Center, New Jersey when the 11th ranked Florida State Seminoles take on the UConn Huskies. This meeting is part of 2018 Never Forget Tribute Classic. Between both teams have a combined 14-3 record and with still lots of upsides in their games.
Florida State Seminoles vs. UConn Huskies Predictions
We can expect fireworks and a high paced game. Both teams can score at a high rate, so it should be fun to watch. Florida State has won two straight since losing their only game of the season against Villanova. The Seminoles bounced back with a win over Purdue and Troy in the next couple of outings. However, they haven’t been quite the right side to bet on this season. Florida State hasn’t covered the spread in the last four straight games. Three times they were favorites and once dogs.
The Seminoles have proved us they can score averaging 78.8 points per game. But because their pace is so great, they allow a high 66.8 points per game average as well. The good thing is they give us some thrilling games. Florida State’s best win of the season came in the first game, beating Florida by 21 points. Other significant wins against LSU and Purdue came straight up but not against the spread. UConn’s best win this season came against Syracuse early on. Their 83-76 win over the Orange is the only victory they have over a ranked team this year. The Huskies have won four of the last five games, and they have done it scoring at a high rate. They also covered the spread in all those four victories.
The University of Connecticut has some ballers on their team, starting with senior guard Jalen Adams who averages 19.0 points per game. The Huskies scores 85.6 points per game this season and they have reached the 90 points per contest five times this year. Seven of their nine games have gone OVER the total. With two sides that can score a lot, it’s the perfect opportunity to cash in with the over again. Watching UConn play I feel like the move the ball better to find a better shot quality than the Seminoles.
And if the game is tight as I expect it to be, they can always put the ball in the hands of Jalen Adams. I don’t think Florida State has that type of player on their team. That go-to guy is always the difference whenever crunch time hits the clock. This game will be decided in the last few possessions. I’m leaning towards The Huskies to win what should be a close one. What’s the play? UConn.
