Western Kentucky vs. Villanova Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Western Kentucky vs. Villanova 11/22/17

Will No. 5 Villanova roll to a big win when the Wildcats take on Western Kentucky in the Battle 4 Atlantis today at 2:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Villanova is the clear favorite, as the Wildcats are getting odds of -22.5 points against Western Kentucky. The over/under total has been set at 157 points. Today’s game takes place from Imperial Arena in Nassau, Bahamas and will air live on ESPN2.

Western Kentucky is 2-1 to start the season but the Hilltoppers have played in just one lined game, with was a failed cover in a loss to Missouri State. Western Kentucky is scoring 90 points per game right now while giving up 85.5 per contest. WKU has seven players averaging double figures in scoring right now, as the team has great balance. Dwight Coleby is leading the way with 14.7 points and 7 rebounds per contest while Justin Johnson is adding 11.7 points and 11.3 rebounds per contest.

Villanova is coming off a 104-57 win over Lafayette last weekend to move to 3-0 on the season. The Wildcats are 2-1 against the spread, but they have covered two 30-plus point spreads. Nova is averaging 97.3 points per game while allowing 64.7 per contest. Mikal Bridges is leading the Wildcats with 18.3 points and 5.7 rebounds per game while Jalen Brunson is adding 17.7 points and 4.7 assists per contest.

Bet on Western Kentucky vs. Villanova

These two have no recent meetings to consider. However, Villanova has managed to cover some big spreads already this year while Western Kentucky has struggled somewhat against lesser opponents. Villanova is 40-19-1 ATS in its last 60 non-conference games while Western Kentucky has failed to cover in its last four games after scoring 100 points in their previous game. The public betting is nearly unanimous with Villanova right now and I tend to agree.
