According to oddsmakers at RealBets, Villanova is the clear favorite on the road, as the Wildcats are getting odds of -20 points against St. Johns. The over/under total for the game has yet to be set.

Villanova is coming off an 82-76 loss at home to Providence this week to fall to 17-3 overall and 7-1 in the Big East. The loss snapped a nine-game win streak for the Wildcats and they now meet St. Johns, which is 0-8 in the Big East and just 7-14 overall. Clearly oddsmakers like the Wildcats to win, but covering 20 is a lot. However, one key trend to consider is that Villanova is 4-0 against the spread since 2014 after a loss. That includes two covers this year after losses.

St. Johns is just 3-5 ATS in Big East play this season and the Red Storm don’t have a great history vs. Villanova as is. The Wildcats have won seven straight meetings with St. Johns, dating back to 2011. In those seven wins, the Wildcats are 6-1 against the spread. Villanova has also covered in four straight trips to St. Johns.
