Connecticut vs East Carolina - Picks Of The Day, March 1st

Conneticut Huskies

UConn needs a win at lowly East Carolina tonight to lock up a first-round bye in the AAC tournament. Luckily for them, they were able to beat the Pirates earlier in the year 72-65 with only six active players, so I think we can easily say they are the better team.

The odds makers agree and have placed them as a small 2-point road favorite.

UConn’s leading scorer, Jalen Adams, may miss this game with a sprained ankle, but his replacement, Rodney Purvis, should be more than ready to take the torch for this match up. Purvis grew up in the area and will likely have tons of friends and family in attendance. Having the leading scorer out, and having it not matter much, is a betting angle I like so I will be taking UConn -2 at Pinnacle.
