The Mountaineers gave up 94.3 points per 100 possessions this season, which ranks them 55th in the NCAA.

#15 UConn Huskies vs West Virginia Mountaineers. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #15 UConn Huskies.

 

West Virginia enters this match as a two-point favorite at home in what will be their hardest match of the season thus far. The Mountaineers are on a four-game unbeaten run, but the Huskies may present a challenge.

 

With two excellent early-season victories, UConn gained respect and should be able to withstand the Mountaineers’ backcourt pressure. West Virginia, on the other hand, struggled on the defensive glass, an area where the Huskies thrived this season.

 

In this non-conference matchup on Wednesday night, pick UConn to cover the spread on the road. The UConn Huskies will win to a predicted score of 71-70.
