According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Villanova is favored in this game, as the Wildcats are getting odds of -2 points against Oklahoma. The over/under total for the game has been set at 144.5 points. These two meet in a NCAA Tournament semifinal from NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
Villanova is currently 33-5 on the season, 8-2 on a neutral floor and 19-17-1 against the spread. Oklahoma is 29-7 overall, 8-1 on a neutral court and 14-20 against the spread. These two actually met once this season with Oklahoma getting a 78-55 win in the Pearl Harbor Invitational.
Both teams are obviously playing well right now, winning four straight. Strangely, both teams had their last loss come by a score of 69-67 as well. Villanova has been perfect against the spread in the four games of the NCAA Tournament while Oklahoma is 2-2 ATS. The Sooners are also just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 NCAA Tournament games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games at a neutral site. Villanova is actually 39-18-1 ATS in their last 58 games against a team with a winning record. Though Nova was hammered by the Sooners earlier this year, they can learn from that game and should be very motivated to change the outcome this time around. Nova looks like a championship team right now and we expect them to get by the Sooners.
