Connecticut Huskies Odds - Huskies need to integrate new faces to remain contender

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/4/2014 4:25:42 AM

The Connecticut Huskies odds to win the Big East are fairly good, but as everyone knows, their conference is the toughest in college basketball. Online betting cappers have to take notice that the Huskies are replenishing their frontcourt after the departure of Hasheem Thabeet. If they can do so seamlessly, then they’ll remain contenders.

Connecticut Huskies odds: +350 to win Big East; +1500 to win Championship

  • Huskies lost A.J. Price, Hasheem Thabeet, Craig Austrie and Jeff Adrien
  • A healthy return from Jerome Dyson can take the backcourt a long way
  • Huskies to fall back to the Big East pack

Connecticut Huskies odds maker breakdown: THE COACHING
It will be the 24th consecutive season for Jim Calhoun, and he’ll have his work cut out for him. Nobody is questioning his abilities, but he has to coach up a squad that lost a lot of talent. Calhoun may be one of the better recruiters and better strategists, but he’ll have to work some real magic to get Huskies back to the Final Four.

While Price is gone, sportsbook bettors know that there won’t be a huge drop-off in the backcourt since Dyson is back and healthy. He was a key member of last year’s team, but he tore his knee and missed the tournament. Dyson, along with freshman sensation Kemba Walker, will lead the guards. The frontcourt is unsettled, though.

Connecticut Huskies odds maker breakdown: THE SCHEDULE
UConn plays in the SEC, so their schedule is going to be fairly tough once they get to conference play, but their non-conference schedule isn’t overly difficult. They’ll face off with Kentucky in the SEC-Big East Challenge, but aside from that, they won’t have to prove their mettle until the Big East schedule starts.

Connecticut Huskies odds maker breakdown: THE OUTLOOK
The Huskies have quite a number of players to replace, and NCAA basketball betting fans know that it’s enough to drop them from their Final Four peg. Their frontcourt is up in the air for now, and until their big men prove to be reliable, you can’t expect the Huskies to be the same dominant Big East foe they were last year.
