Betting Strategy

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.
