Alabama Crimson Tide vs. UConn Huskies Betting Preview – Final Four

In a big time College Basketball game,  the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Connecticut Huskies are gearing up to face off in the second game of the NCAA Tournament Final Four on Saturday. The winner of this clash will advance to compete for the  National Championship on Monday, against either the North Carolina State Wolf Pack or the Purdue Boilermakers.

The Alabama Crimson Tide, seeded fourth in the West Region, have showcased their strengths by overcoming some big time opponents to reach this game. Their recent win over Clemson in the Elite 8 sent them to Phoenix, which came following back-to-back victories against Atlantic Coast Conference teams. With a 25-11 record, Alabama enters the showdown prepared to take on the top team in the country.

On the other hand, the Connecticut Huskies have been playing as the team to beat, grabbing the top overall seed in the NCAA Tournament. Sporting an impressive 35-3 record and riding an impressive 11-game winning streak, UConn shows all the  confidence following their regional final win over Illinois in Boston.

The UConn Huskies are -11.5 over Alabama in this game.

Hurley and the Huskies

Leading the charge for the Huskies is head coach Dan Hurley, whose leadership has been such a key in their remarkable success. Since their last loss in late February, the Huskies have went on an impressive 11-game winning streak, showcasing dominance in all parts of the game. 

Notably, Donovan Clingan’s defensive ability has been a huge feature, with the forward delivering five blocked shots in a pivotal win over Illinois. Meanwhile, Tristen Newton, the team’s top scorer, has been a consistent scoring threat throughout the season, providing big time contributions to UConn’s offensive firepower.

High Flying Crimson Tide

On the other side,  Alabama Crimson Tide boast the highest-scoring offense in College Basketball, averaging an impressive 90.6 points per game. Led by elite scorer Mark Sears, Alabama’s offensive talent has been a force that has been hard to stop, as evidenced by their impressive performances in the NCAA Tournament. However, the team’s defense has faced challenges, with struggles leading to defeats against opponents scoring over 100 points.

As the Huskies continue their unstoppable momentum, Alabama faces a tough challenge with UConn’s defense. Despite their high-scoring offense, the Crimson Tide must be prepared for a relentless defensive pressure from the Huskies.

Alabama will be playing in the NCAA Final Four for the first time in school history.
