Updates for Saint Mary’s vs. UConn

Looking at the college basketball injury report is something that you must do before making a Saint Mary’s vs UConn prediction. Most college basketball players are playing through some pain at this point of the year, but neither Saint Mary’s nor UConn have any major injury concerns. 

Both Saint Mary’s and UConn were popular NCAAB picks in the first round, but things weren’t easy for either team. Saint Mary’s was able to survive and upset scare from VCU, and UConn was able to get past Iona with a dominant second half. 

Out of these two teams, it is UConn that has the best odds to win March Madness, but a win by Saint Mary’s would improve those odds in a big way. 

Saint Mary’s vs. UConn Betting Preview

Looking at the NCAAB odds is one of the first things you should do when trying to handicap a game in March Madness. You will find that the UConn Huskies are 3.5-point betting favorites in this one, and the over/under is set at 129.5 points. 

Saint Mary’s was atop the college basketball standings in the West Coast Conference this season, but they haven’t really been challenged much. The Gaels are a team that doesn’t turn the ball over much, and they can be a disruptive defensive team. 

UConn has been one of the best NCAA basketball teams all year long, and they are led by a superstar in Adama Sanogo. Sanogo can do a little bit of everything for the Huskies, but he also has plenty of talent to help him out. 

The team that is able to dictate the pace at which this game is going to be played at should come out on top, but scoring is going to matter at some point. This is where UConn has an advantage, as they just have more offensive weapons than Saint Mary’s. 

Saint Mary’s vs. UConn Betting Prediction

There are a number of different ways to make a Saint Mary’s vs UConn prediction, but sticking with the spread is the best way to go. There isn’t much of a spread in this game, and that shows just how tight this matchup could be. 

Saint Mary’s has enough talent to win this game, but their lack of size across the board is going to hurt. UConn is a popular pick to win the NCAA Tournament for a reason, and they should have enough offense to take care of things in this one. 

Betting on this event:

If you are making March Madness picks, then you will want to take the UConn Huskies -3.5, as they will have just enough to get past the Saint Mary’s Gaels.
