OUR PREDICTION: The Wildcats have not fared well at the betting window in recent NCAA tournament games, going 0-3-1 against the spread in their last four appearances. That said, they're 4-0-1 against the number in their last five games, are 4-1-1 against the spread in their last six non-conference games, and are 3-1-1 ATS in their lat five games as a favorite. For as strong as the Gaels have been at the betting window, they're also just 1-5 against the number in their last six neutral site games and are winless at 0-5 ATS in their last five as an underdog overall.
