In Depth Analysis On The Wildcats Vs Hoyas Spread, Betting Pick & TV InfoWhen: Saturday, March 4 a 12:00 PM ET Where: Verizon Center, Washington, District of Columbia
Why Bet The Villanova WildcatsVillanova (27-3 SU, 15-14 ATS) has won eight of their last nine games and comes into this matchup off an emphatic 79-63 beatdown of Creighton on Sunday.
Villanova won its fourth consecutive Big East regular season championship with the win as Eric Paschall scored a team-high 19 points and Player of the Year candidate Josh Hart added 16 points and seven rebounds. Kris Jenkins scored 15 and Mikal Bridges had 11 points and eight rebounds for the Wildcats. “We’re not done yet,” Jenkins said. “We have a lot more to accomplish.”
Why Bet The Georgetown HoyasThe Hoyas (14-16 SU, 10-18 ATS) are now a far cry from the powerhouse program they used to be back in the day when guys like Patrick Ewing and Reggie Williams were leading the program to national prominence.
Georgetown has lost four straight and six of their last seven games and comes into this contest off a heartbreaking 62-59 road loss against Seton Hall on Tuesday night. L.J. Peak led the Hoyas with 15 points and senior guard Rodney Pryor was the only other Georgetown player in double figures with 11 points.
Expert Pick & Final Score PredictionThe outcome of this contest is clearly a lock win for Villanova, but the Wildcats could fail to cover the spread just like they did in their 75-64 home win over the Hoyas as a 14.5-point home favorite on Feb. 7.
If the spread for this matchup tops a dozen points, I say play the Hoyas to narrowly cover as Villanova wins by ‘just’ 10 points.
