Villanova Wildcats DFS Snapshot

According to head coach Jay Wright, Collin Gillespie (ankle) is feeling about 80 percent ahead of Tuesday's matchup with Connecticut, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports. Gillespie still hasn't missed a game this season, so the fact that he's feeling less than 100 percent shouldn't impact his availability as the Wildcats travel to Storrs to take on the Huskies on Tuesday. The fifth-year senior is averaging 16.6 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.1 steals across 33.5 minutes per game this season.

UConn Huskies DFS Snapshot

RJ Cole is dealing with a hip injury but should be good to go for Tuesday's contest against Villanova, Charlotte Carroll of The Athletic reports. Cole totaled 16 points (7-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Saturday's win over Xavier, but he presumably suffered a minor hip injury during the contest as well. Regardless, the issue isn't expected to impact his status moving forward. The 6-foot-1 guard has started all 26 contests he's appeared in and is averaging 16.2 points, 4.3 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 33.1 minutes per game.

College Basketball Betting Prediction

The road team is 7-2-2 against the spread in the last 11 meetings between these two teams, while the Wildcats have covered in four of their last five games played on Tuesday and are 44-21-2 against the number in their last 67 games coming off an ATS loss. On the other side, the Huskies are just 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games overall, are 1-4 against the number in their last five games coming off a win and are 2-6 at the betting window in their last eight games versus an opponent with a winning record.
