NCAAB Betting: Stanford vs Villanova

The ninth-ranked Villanova Wildcats will be looking to keep the good times rolling when they face Stanford in the semifinals of the NIT Season Tip-Off Thursday in Brooklyn, New York. The Cats improved to 4-0 for the third time in as many years after topping Akron in the campus round of the tournament while extending their winning streak versus non-conference competition to 19 games.

Shark Bites
  • The Cardinal are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games.
  • The UNDER is 5-2-1 in the Wildcats last 8 games.
  • The Cardinal are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games vs. Big East opponents.

The Wildcats and Cardinal have only met once -- all the way back in 1970 which saw Nova emerge victorious by a score of 96-76. If Villanova can consistently find their offensive rhythm, wins are normally pretty easy to come by. The Wildcats have won 34 straight games when scoring 70 points or more.

Stanford narrowly missed out on the NCAA Tournament last year, but Thursday could provide a big boost for the Cardinal to get back to the dance if they can come away with a win.
