College Basketball Betting Trends

Villanova

The underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings. The Wildcats are 63-42 ATS in their last 105 games overall.

Seton Hall

The Pirates are 4-2 ATS in the last six meetings. Seton Hall is 16-6 ATS in its last 22 games following a win over a conference rival.

Prediction:

The Pirates will look to complete the season sweep tonight and will be heavily motivated to clinch the outright Big East crown, but Villanova will be motivated to not only play spoiler but also keep its chances alive at a share of the championship. With a tough road test on deck for Seton Hall, this certainly is not a done deal yet. I see this contest going down to the wire and the Wildcats bouncing back strong from a subpar performance over the weekend. Take the points with Villanova here.
