Huskies Put Perfect Record on Line

No. 2 UConn Favored Big

One of the big surprises this season has been the UConn Huskies, who are 12-0 and ranked second in the nation.

They are back to their best after some rough years and bettors have cashed in big time with the unbeaten team.

The sportsbook has them as overwhelming favorites against the struggling Georgetown Hoyas, who could struggle to keep a respectable scoreline.

Let’s check the latest college basketball odds, stats, injury reports, and college basketball lines for Georgetown vs UConn. We’ve plenty of NCAA basketball odds for you to consider.

Hoyas Hitting the Wall

It was a solid start to the season for the Hoyas at 5-3, but after four losses from the last five games, they’re struggling to reproduce the goods.

They come off losses to Syracuse and Xavier, with the latest being a disappointing 102-89 home loss as the +10½ underdog.

Failing to cover spreads has plagued the Hoyas. They are 4-7 against the spread, including three losses from the last four.

Betting online markets have taken note and they’re the massive underdogs against UConn, which isn’t surprising. The Hoyas aren’t on the same level and playing away from home isn’t going to help their chances, but it’s a big number.

They were +16 underdogs against Texas Tech when covering the spread by two points, so they’re good enough to hang out.

UConn Streaking Away

Bettors have no reason to jump off the back of the Huskies, who are 11-0-1 ATS and have every chance of keeping that impressive record intact.

They had a push 10 games ago against Buffalo as the -20 favorite, but since then, it has been one-way traffic. They have covered big numbers, such as -39½ against Long Island and -33 against Delaware State.

The Huskies are no strangers to covering big numbers and we were impressed with their 68-46 win over Butler on Saturday. It was a strong defensive performance and it came on the road.

Just playing with that type of relentlessness it’s like a body blow, body blow,” UConn coach Dan Hurley said. “That eventually leads to a head-shot knockout with teams because it’s demoralizing to guard well, force a miss … now we’ve just got guys on trampolines on the backboard.”

The Huskies will be tough to stop on Tuesday and a line of 20-plus points with NCAAB odds might not be enough for the Hoyas.

Georgetown vs UConn Picks & Prediction

We thought UConn could have been around -26 with betting lines, so we’re happy with the current line.

It should be able to lock down Georgetown defensively and it could be over by halftime. Therefore, we’re taking UConn -23 and under 14½. The line opened at 146, but bettors aren’t expecting many points from Georgetown.
