Northwestern needed overtime to top the 2023 Final Four team Florida Atlantic while UConn led by as many as 39 points in its first-round win over Stetson.

ATS Pick: Northwestern +14½ (-110)

UConn should be able to make it eight straight NCAA tournament victories. However, Northwestern beat top-ranked Purdue in December and also topped a ranked Illinois team in overtime in January so the Wildcats might be able to hang around against the defending national champions.

UConn has won its last 11 games played in March while Northwestern is 7-1 against the spread in its last eight games as the underdog.

Ty Berry, Northwestern’s fourth-leading scorer, and starting post player Matthew Nicholson are both out.



Over/Under Pick: Under 136 (-110)

UConn has held its last two opponents under 60 points while Northwestern’s March Madness opener didn’t hit the 120-point mark until overtime so keep that in mind when looking at the best college basketball bets today.

Six of Northwestern’s last 10 games went under the total and this game could be headed in that direction.



Player Prop Pick: UConn’s Cam Spencer 14+ Points (-120)

After missing all four of his 3-point attempts in the Big East title game victory against Marquette, the sweet-shooting Spencer was 3-for-7 from 3-point range in the win against Stetson.

The Rutgers transfer had 23 points and six 3-pointers the last time he played Northwestern so he should be a popular prop pick in this matchup.
