Is No. 2 Villanova A Winning Pick For 2017 NCAA Championship?
National Championship OddsVillanova 10/1
The GoodVillanova has won two straight and nine of their last 10 games overall heading into the Big East tournament, so they’re on nice roll, which is good heading into the national championship. The Wildcats are also very solid at both ends of the floor as they rank a respectable 84th in scoring (77.5 ppg) and even more impressive 21st in points allowed nationally (63.1 ppg).
Not only that, but Villanova also has a Player of the Year candidate in rock-solid shooting guard Josh Hart (18.7 ppg), not to mention a blossoming point guard in Jalen Brunson (14.8 ppg), another blossoming youngster in athletic forward and another likely future NBA performer in sweet-shooting forward Kris Jenkins (13.4 ppg). The Wildcats also play some pretty good competition this season, both, in the Big East and in their non-conference matchups while taking on current or once nationally ranked teams like Virginia, Purdue, Creighton, Xavier and a Butler ballclub they suffered two losses against this season.
