Backing up a close game even more in this one is that these two split the regular season 1-1 in their two meetings.

Both teams also finished the season on hot notes going 6-1 in each of their last seven games.
Can UConn End Cold Stretch ATS?
Like their overall records on the season, both teams also finished with similar records against the spread. Both were below .500 records as UConn went 12-17-1 while Seton Hall finished 13-15-1. Although both teams struggled ATS this season, the Pirates might have the advantage being that the Huskies were an ice-cold 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games. Seton Hall, in their last 12 games, went 5-7.
Something that backs up Seton Hall covering the spread here is that both times they met in the regular season, the underdog covered the spread both times. In this case, Seton Hall is the underdog. The Pirates have also thriven as an underdog this season with a 5-2 ATS record in that scenario and have covered those games by 4.8 points.
UConn, when facing a team with a winning record overall, has gone 2-6-1 ATS in their last nine games. The Huskies are also 11-14-1 ATS when going into a game as the favorite and have a cover margin of -0.4 points in those games.
The public betting splits though tell a different story as UConn is seeing the majority of the bets on their side of the spread at 65%. All in all, this is a great chance to get in on some longer CBB odds on the spread.
