College Basketball Betting Trends
The Wildcats are 7-1 ATS in their last eight Friday games. Villanova is 20-6 ATS in its last 26 neutral site games.
The Bulldogs are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall. Mississippi State is 7-2 ATS in its last nine games following a straight up win.
Villanova looked outstanding offensively yesterday against a top 200 team and a better squad than MSU defeated. I like the Wildcats to continue rolling here and as long as the spread isn't higher than eight or nine, I am betting on them to cover in this spot.
