Marquette Golden Eagles at Connecticut Huskies Betting Pick

A massive College Basketball game on Saturday features the Marquette Golden Eagles and the Connecticut Huskies. The Golden Eagles are 19-5 on the season, and 2nd in the Big East Conference. Marquette has won eight straight games, and went to Butler on Tuesday and beat the Bulldogs.

For the top ranked Connecticut Huskies, they come into the game with a 23-2 mark on the season. The Huskies are leading the Big East Conference standings. Connecticut has won 13 straight games. Their win on Wednesday came by 36 points on the road at the DePaul Blue Demons.

Connecticut comes into the game as a 5.5-point favorite at home.

Top Team in the Country

The defending national champion Connecticut Huskies have been all but flawless this season. They lost at Kansas in nonconference play, and then on the road at Seton Hall in late December. Since that loss to the Pirates, it has been smooth sailing. The Huskies have won four out of their last six games by double digits.

The top scorer for the Huskies this season has been Cam Spencer. He is scoring 15.2 points per game on the season. Tristen Newton is just behind him with 15 per game, while Alex Karaban is right with them at 14.9 per game. The Huskies as a team are scoring 82 points per game.

The Huskies will finish their 2024 schedule after this with five more challenges. First, they will go to Creighton on Tuesday. They wrap up February with a home game against Villanova. Once March arrives, they will host Seton Hall, and then play at Marquette and on the road at Providence.

Golden Eagles Looking to Spring Major Upset

The start of January did not go well for the Marquette Golden Eagles. After three nonconference loss, the Golden Eagles fell by 3 on the road at Seton Hall, and at home by 7 to Butler. Since then, the Golden Eagles have been rolling. Much like the Huskies, Marquette has been winning games by double digits, 5 of 8 during this stretch.

Marquette is winning with great defense and timely scoring. The Golden Eagles are also nailing nearly nine three-point shots per game. Tyler Kolek is the key offensively for Marquette. The point guard is scoring 16.1 points per game and dishing out 7.4 assists per game.

The Golden Eagles will head home after this game and play three straight home games. First, they welcome DePaul to town, before visits from Xavier and Providence. In March, the Golden Eagles are at Creighton, home against UConn and then will finish on the road at Xavier.

Huskies Keep Winning

The Connecticut Huskies are on a mission again. They are none too pleased they ran through the NCAA Tournament a season ago, and have been overlooked by most this season. Look for UConn to do quick and easy work and knock off the Golden Eagles in this game. 

Our final bet for this game is the UConn Huskies -5.5 over the Marquette Golden Eagles. Enjoy the game and good luck!
