Northwestern vs. UConn betting picks and predictions

UConn first half spread -8 (-110)

Northwestern comes into this game with an overall record of 22-11.

They beat Florida Atlantic in the Round of 64 by a score of 77-65 in overtime, but really struggled to get going in that game, scoring just 19 points in the first half.

Their offense improved in the second half and especially in overtime, but going up against UConn will be a much tougher test.

On the other side of this matchup is UConn, who comes into this game with a record of 32-3. UConn beat Stetson in their first round game by a score of 91-52.

Further, the Huskies’ were extremely balanced in this game as well, as all five starters scored in double figures.

UConn is a heavy favorite in this game and there is little reason to believe that they will not win. However, instead of taking the Huskies on the full game spread, we will target them in the first half.

The Huskies came out red hot in the first half against Stetson, jumping out to a 50-19 halftime lead, while Northwestern could not buy a bucket in their first half against Florida Atlantic.

Ryan Langborg Over 13.5 Points (-110)

Our favorite player prop for this game will target Ryan Langborg from Northwestern to go over his points prop of 13.5.

Langborg was the third leading scorer on the Wildcats this season, averaging 12.7 points per game. However, Langborg put on a show in Northwestern’s first round match against Florida Atlantic.

He scored 27 points in that game and has now scored at least 14 points in seven of his last 10 games.

UConn’s defense is no doubt elite, but Langborg has the ability to consistently make three-pointers.
