UConn vs St. John’s Betting Prediction

St. John’s comes into this game playing very well and they have won six games in a row, but they will face one of the best teams in the country here. UConn is ranked #2 in the nation and they have won 19 of their last 20 games. The Huskies are very good offensively, but their defense has been elite, allowing just 64 points against per game this year. St. John’s has looked very strong on the offensive end of the court recently, so it will be a fun matchup to watch. I think we are going to see plenty of points in this one and I like the over here.
