Villanova Wildcats vs UConn Huskies 2/22/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The #10 Villanova Wildcats will go against the #24 UConn Huskies in a Big East Conference clash in XL Center, Hartford, CT, on Tuesday, February 22, 2022, at 8:00 PM (EST).

 

Villanova’s best scorer, Collin Gillespie, is labeled as doubtful for Tuesday’s game due to an ankle ailment. That’s the major news coming into a difficult showdown against the Huskies, who are rated No. 21 in the country.

 

According to CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein, Villanova coach Jay Wright said the senior guard, along with second-leading scorer Justin Moore, is at 80 percent health.

 

As a result, the Wildcats will be a little beat up for Tuesday’s game. It might be costly on the road against a Huskies club that is rated 25th in Kenpom’s adjusted defensive efficiency rating. The setting will be the biggest difference between this game and the prior encounter.

 

On their home court, Connecticut excelled defensively, with opponents posting only 60.8 points per game. So don’t expect Villanova to shoot 59.2 percent in this game. I wouldn’t bet on them putting up 85 points on the board with their top two players perhaps injured.

 

  • The University of Villanova Wildcats is 5-0 SU in their last 5 matches.
  • Villanova is 6-1 SU in their last 7 matches on the road.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Villanova’s last 6 matches in the Big East Conference.

Villanova Wildcats vs UConn Huskies Predictions 2/22/2022

 

In this battle, the Huskies will make no excuses. They’ll be playing at home against a Wildcats club that is plagued by injuries. It would be on Tuesday if they had any chance of pulling off an upset. However, they can’t afford to crumble as they did in the first game.

 

They surrendered 40 points or more in both the first and second halves of the game, and they were minus-eight on the glass. Given that the Huskies are one of the top rebounding teams in the country, the latter figure was the most surprising.

 

Tyrese Martin, Andre Jackson, and Adam Sanogo collaborated for less than 10 rebounds on a milk carton. When you’re getting smashed on the boards, it’s tough to beat this Wildcats squad.

 

The Huskies put out a strong offensive effort, but Villanova missed far too many free throws and second-chance opportunities. Connecticut has to improve its defensive play and limit easy baskets. Without the Huskies’ defensive flaws, the Wildcats are already a highly efficient offensive squad.

 

  • The total went OVER in 13 of Connecticut’s last 20 matches.
  • The University of Connecticut Huskies is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 matches at home against Villanova.
  • Connecticut is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 matches in the Big East Conference.

#10 Villanova Wildcats vs #24 UConn Huskies. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #24 UConn Huskies. This season, the Huskies are generating 41.5 rebounds per game, which is the fourth-highest in the country.

 

In their first encounter with the Wildcats, they were kept to less than half of that. In addition, the club surrendered 59.2 percent shooting and 21 free throw attempts. In one game, there were way too many easy baskets.

 

On the road, I anticipate Connecticut to make the necessary changes against a Huskies team that is set to hobble into the XL Center.

 

The Huskies’ ability to equalize the score and pull out a win will be determined by their ability to play at home. The #24 UConn Huskies will win and cover the ATS to a predicted score of 71-65.
