#11 Villanova Wildcats vs Butler Bulldogs. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #11 Villanova Wildcats. Butler is playing better of late, including a close 71-70 (OT) defeat at home to Providence, but this is a club that struggled on the offensive end of the court, ranking 329th in scoring offense and 280th in field goal percentage, and losing 82-42 to Villanova in mid-January.

 

Villanova gained six of their past seven matches, and I believe their defense, which ranks 36th in scoring defense and 63rd in defensive FG percent, will cause problems for the Butler offense once again. I believe Villanova will win by 15+ points and cover the double-digit road spread. The #11 Villanova Wildcats will win to a predicted score of 70-61.
