Villanova Cashing For Total Bettors

Villanova has spent most of their season as one of the most complete two-way teams in the nation, but their recent offensive explosion has made them a brilliant OVER play. The OVER is 8-1 in the Wildcats’ past nine games with ‘Nova and their opponents combining for 151 points per game. Villanova will start their potential trip to Houston against the UNC Asheville Bulldogs Friday.

Shark Bites
  • UNC Asheville is 2-5 SU in their past seven games against teams with winning records.
  • Villanova is just 1-4 ATS in their past five games.
  • UNC Asheville is 3-0 ATS in their past three games as underdogs.

This entire season will be dictated by how Villanova does during the NCAA Tournament. The Wildcats have not made it past the second round since 2010 and anything less than a trip to the Sweet 16 will likely be looked at as a failure. Junior Kris Jenkins has turned his game on recently as the forward has averaged 21 ppg over Villanova’s past eight contests.

What UNC Asheville lacks in offense, they make up for in a stifling defense. The Bulldogs finished third in the nation in steals and have held their opponents to under 70 points per game on the year as a whole. Though far from the best in the nation, the Bulldogs boast depth offensively as all five of their starters average double-digit points.
