#14 Villanova Wildcats vs #17 Xavier Musketeers. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #17 Xavier Musketeers. The Wildcats are in good shape but struggle on the road in their offensive output averaging less than 70 ppg and making only 39% of their attempts. Even if they do a terrific job on the offensive boards, the Musketeers, one of the top rebounding teams in the country, will not get many put-backs.

 

The Wildcats will have a difficult time scoring against the Musketeers, who limited opponents to under 60 ppg at home. The Musketeer claimed nine straight matches at home and did not have any issue scoring, averaging over 75 ppg and hitting 46 percent of their shots.

 

They are strong on the offensive glass, collecting over 11 offensive rebounds per game, and will have plenty of opportunities to score. Even though the Wildcats have a strong defense, the Musketeers will be too much for them to handle. Thus, take Xavier to cover the spread. The #17 Xavier Musketeers will win to a predicted score of 73-67.
