Villanova vs. Gonzaga Pick

Villanova vs. Gonzaga College Basketball Predictions Against The Spread

Which team will come away with a big win in the Jimmy V Classic when No. 12 Gonzaga takes on No. 4 Villanova tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Villanova is favored in this game, as the Wildcats are getting odds of -5 points against Gonzaga. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 148 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Madison Square Garden in New York, New York and will air live on ESPN.

Villanova is off to an 8-0 start to the season thanks to a 94-53 win over St. Joe’s last weekend. The Wildcats are 6-2 against the spread, covering in four straight games. Villanova is putting up 86.4 points per game right now while giving up just 61.6 per contest. Mikal Bridges and Jalen Brunson each are putting up 17.9 points per game to lead Villanova. Bridges is also adding 6.3 rebounds and 2.5 steals per game.

Gonzaga is coming off a 91-74 win over Creighton to improve to 7-1 on the season. The Bulldogs are 3-2 against the spread this season, covering in their last two lined games. Gonzaga is putting up 92.9 points per game this season while allowing 73.4 per contest. Johnathan Williams is averaging 15.9 points and 6.9 rebounds per game while Josh Perkins is adding 14.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.5 assists per contest.

Bet on Villanova vs. Gonzaga

These two have no recent meetings to consider. Gonzaga is 13-2-1 against the spread in its last 16 games against Big East opponents and 16-5 ATS in their last 21 Tuesday games. Villanova is 1-4 ATS in their last five games after scoring more than 90 points in their previous game. I think this game should come down to the wire, so I am going to side with Gonzaga getting some points. The public betting is slightly with Nova, but I’ll take the underdog.

CBB DAILY PREDICTION: GONZAGA +5
