Use a couple of \MakeUppercase instructions:



  {\MakeUppercase{\chaptertitlename}\ \thechapter:}



\chapter{Marco Teórico}


I used \Large instead of \huge because I got an overfull line with the latter. I also reduced the space between the colon and the title.

\renewcommand{\chaptername}{CHAPTER} add to your preamble. It should capitalize the word CHAPTER.
