Connecticut got a big effort from Tyrese Martin in its last victory against Butler with 20 points. The Huskies went on to miss their next two games due to health protocols.

Seton Hall-UConn Predictions

These teams match up well against one another on either side of the court. My lean goes towards the Huskies playing at home. They have dominated this series from a SU win standpoint and they continue to be a tough out at Gampel Pavilion.

This is why I'm going chalk in Saturday’s contest both SU and ATS. Each of these teams are coming off a solid effort on defense the last time out and I see that carrying over to Saturday’s contest.

Take the UNDER on the current total line in a lower scoring game than expected.

  • Score Prediction: UConn 65 Seton Hall 60
  • Best Bets: UConn -2
  • Best Bets: UNDER
