Villanova is favored by -19, according to OddsShark.
The Villanova Wildcats head into Philadelphia to bounce back from their dismal performance in Columbus earlier this week. Falling to Ohio State 51-76, ‘Nova debuted at the Buckeyes’ arena visibly shaken and unable to muster any ounce of momentum. A home game with another Ohio team may serve to reverse that fortune this afternoon. This is only the second meeting between Villanova and Ohio—’Nova leads the series 1-0.
For the Wildcats, freshman Jeremiah Robinson-Earl will likely continue his dominant lead for ‘Nova’s offense. Robinson-Earl currently leads Villanova’s shooting with an average 16 points a game. Further, the explosive freshman has topped rebounding for Villanova as well, averaging a team-high of 9.5 so far this season.
