Providence Friars vs UConn Huskies 12/18/2021 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Providence Friars of the Big East Conference will go against the #20 UConn Huskies of the Big East Conference in NCAAB action in Xl Center, Hartford, CT, on Saturday, December 18, 2021, at 5:00 PM (EST).

 

The Providence Friars come into this match on a five-game winning run, including a 15-point home win against the Central Connecticut State Blue Devils in their most recent game.

 

Providence’s defense was outstanding in that match, allowing only 53 points while causing the opposition to shoot only 28.1 percent from the field. That outstanding defensive performance, though, was unsurprising given the Friars’ low scoring average of 62.3 points per game.

 

Providence will now attempt to continue its winning run with a conference away game on the horizon. Nate Watson, the Friars’ senior center, leads the team in scoring with 15.3 points per game and 5.5 rebounds per game.

 

Furthermore, he is shooting 64.3 percent from the field, indicating that he is incredibly wise with his shot selection up to this time.

 

  • The University of Providence Friars is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 matches.
  • Providence is 2-4 ATS in their last 6 matches against Connecticut.
  • The Friars are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 matches on the road against Connecticut.

Providence Friars vs UConn Huskies Predictions 12/18/2021

 

This season, the UConn Huskies appeared like an exceptionally good college basketball team, winning 9 of their first 11 games, including a ten-point win against the St. Bonaventure Bonnies in their previous match. UConn’s offense was efficient in that contest, scoring 74 points while committing only eight turnovers.

 

UConn will now attempt to keep its winning streak going with a conference home matchup coming up next. Fortunately, the Huskies claimed their first six home matches, so they should be in top form on Saturday.

 

Senior guard R.J. Cole leads the way offensively for UConn this year, scoring a team-high 16.0 points per game and 4.2 assists per game. However, he is only shooting 39.4 percent from the field, indicating that he is ineffective offensively up to this time.

 

  • The Connecticut Huskies are 2-4 ATS in their previous 6 games.
  • Connecticut is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 matches at home against Providence.
  • The Huskies are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 matches in the Big East Conference.

Providence Friars vs #20 UConn Huskies. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #20 UConn Huskies. UConn is now rated, whereas Providence is still unranked, implying that there is a talent gap between these two programs.

 

UConn is undefeated at home, while Providence only competed for one real road match to this point, so the Friars should struggle in this unfriendly environment on Saturday. Thus I anticipate the Friars to struggle harder on the offensive end.

 

As a result, the home team has a lot of value in this location. The #20 UConn Huskies will win and cover to a predicted score of 73-65.
