Purdue vs UConn Picks & Prediction

For only the third time since 2017, the two teams meeting in the National Championship game are number one seeds.

Defending champion UConn seeks its 12th straight win and cover in the NCAA Tournament as the Huskies battle Purdue.

The Boilermakers are seeking their first ever championship and the first title for a Big 10 team since Michigan State won it all in 2000.

Purdue took care of North Carolina State in Saturday's semifinal round, marking the fourth win by double-digits in the tournament.

Zach Edey scored his fewest points in the tournament against N.C. State as the Purdue star was limited to 20 points. However, Edey picked up his 8th consecutive double-double as Purdue has cashed the Under in three consecutive games.

UConn pulled away from Alabama in Saturday's 86-72 victory, marking the 11th straight tourney win for Dan Hurley's team by 10 points or more.

Alabama knocked down 11 three-pointers against UConn, marking the first time the Huskies allowed any opponent in the tournament to make more than 6 treys.

Purdue hit 10 three-pointers against N.C. State, as the Boilermakers have converted at least 40% of their tries from downtown in three of the past four games.

Although it's easy to back UConn here considering their domination in the tournament, but Purdue is one step away from completing erasing its shocking first round exit against FDU last season.

The Boilermakers are 2-0 SU/ATS as an underdog this season and worth a strong look getting points with the best player in the country on their side.

Pick: Purdue +6.5 (-110)
