Butler Bulldogs vs #14 Villanova Wildcats. The NCAAB pick for this game is #14 Villanova Wildcats. The Wildcats claimed nine of their previous 11 matches, including five consecutive home matches. They have a strong offensive game, averaging over 80 points per game while converting 52 percent of their field goals and 44 percent of their three-point attempts.
They did well on the offensive glass in their previous three matches and are very conservative with the ball, so don’t anticipate them to allow the Bulldogs many easy scoring chances. Despite their strong defensive play, the Bulldogs underperformed in recent matches, allowing more than 72 points per game in each of their previous three games, and will have a difficult time slowing down the Wildcats in this matchup.
The Bulldogs also underperformed offensively, scoring fewer than 60 points per game while only making 37 percent of their shots on the road. They are also sloppy with the ball, which will be a concern against a team that has 8 steals per game at home and holds opponents to under 60 points per game, so anticipate them to struggle to slow down the Wildcats. The #14 Villanova Wildcats will win to a predicted best play of UNDER 70-54.
