Odds and Ends
As of 10:30 a.m. ET on Wednesday there was no line established for this contest. Villanova is 7-4 ATS this season.
Villanova leads the all-time series between the two teams 10-0. The Wildcats won the last meeting between the two 73-52 in the 2011-2012 season. American also too on Villanova as a 14-seed in the first round of the 2009 NCAA tournament. The Eagles actually led that contest for much of the game before eventually falling, 80-67.
This one would seem pretty cut-and-dried. ‘Nova comes into the contest number one for a reason and offensively it has been firing on all cylinders. Meanwhile, the Eagles are just 3-7 on the year and their last victory was a 3-point squeaker over powerhouse Maryland-East Shocked.
Unless the Wildcats come out startlingly flat, I’d expect them to take a commanding lead into half and for fans to see a lot of time for the #BenchMob as Jay Wright tries to prepare his team for another grueling conference season.
