UCONN Huskies vs Bucknell Bison NCAA Tournament Picks, Predictions vs the Spread
If you were paying attention at all during the conference tournaments, then you saw the amazing run by Kemba Walker and the UCONN Huskies. But can they carry that over into the NCAA Tournament? Some people think they can, but the point spread for UCONN and Bucknell is strikingly low. Connecticut is only a 10-point favorite despite the fairly large disparity in seeding. So what do these odds mean? Will we take them with our NCAA tournament picks?
If you were making this pick, you might consider history. How have teams fared after playing 5 games in 5 days the week before? It has never happened, but we did see Syracuse lay an egg after winning 4 games in 4 days in 2006. UCONN will, at some point, lose its legs in the tournament. Chances are that they will still have enough to win against Bucknell in the first round. Whether they cover a relatively short point spread is a completely different story, as this scrappy Bucknell team might have what it takes to get the cover.
