Public Betting Information
As of this writing, 62% of betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Wildcats to cover the double-digit point spread. Meanwhile, 58% of the betting tickets are on the under to cash this evening.
Neither team has any player listed on their injury report.
Thanks to Jalen Brunson, the Wildcats own one of the best offenses in the nation and have been a great 'over' team for bettors. In their last 26 games overall, the over is 19-7. In their last 12 games coming off a win, the over is 10-2. The over is also 4-1 in Villanova's last five non-conference games, is 4-1 in their last five neutral site games, and has cashed in five of their last seven NCAA tournament matchups as well. Radford has played with a chip on its shoulder all year after being picked seventh in the Big South preseason polls and also had a challening non-conference slate. While I don't expect the Highlanders to make history this evening, they're not going to be intimidated either. They'll contrinute enough offensively to contribute to the score going over the total.
