Delaware Blue Hens vs Villanova Wildcats 3/18/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The #15 Delaware Blue Hens will meet with the #2 Villanova Wildcats in a Men’s Basketball Championship – South Region – 1st Round clash in PPG Paints Arena, PA, on Friday, March 18, 2022, at 2:45 PM ET.

 

Delaware finished sixth in the CAA regular-season standings but is advancing to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2014 courtesy to a strong run through the league tournament, which included a low-scoring victory over No. 2 seed UNC Wilmington in the final.

 

The Blue Hens eventually got some offense going after trailing by 7 with 18:39 left, and Jyare Davis’ jumper with 1:03 remaining proved to be the game-winner.

 

Davis topped Delaware with 18 points, while Andrew Carr had 17 points, 12 rebounds, and 3 steals on an efficient 6/7 shooting performance. The Delaware defense was outstanding, holding the Seahawks to 37 percent shooting from the field, including 4/15 from the three-point range.

 

The Blue Hens are 15-18 against the spread but covered all three of their CAA Tournament matches, including a win against regular-season winner Towson.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Delaware’s last 10 matches.
  • The University of Delaware Blue Hens is 3-6 ATS in their last 9 matches against Villanova.
  • Delaware is 0-10 SU in their last 10 matches against Villanova.

Delaware Blue Hens vs Villanova Wildcats Predictions 3/18/2022

 

The Wildcats are back in contention for the NCAA Tournament after completing a complete season that culminated in a slugfest victory over Creighton in the Big East Championship Game. Creighton led 43-39 with five minutes remaining in the game, but Collin Gillespie took control down the line to give the Wildcats the victory.

 

Gillespie had 17 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, and two steals to lead the way, while Justin Moore had 16 points and six rebounds.

 

The Villanova offense struggled, but the Wildcats limited Creighton to 32.8 percent shooting from the field, including a dismal 3/29 from the three-point range. The Wildcats are an equal 16-16-1 against the spread, after losing two of their three Big East Tournament matches after being taken to the wire by St. John’s.

 

  • The University of Villanova Wildcats is 5-0 SU in their previous 5 matches.
  • Villanova is 10-1 SU in their last 11 matches this season.
  • The Wildcats are 9-0 SU in their last 9 matches in the Colonial Athletic Conference.

#15 Delaware Blue Hens vs #2 Villanova Wildcats. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #2 Villanova Wildcats. Few teams in the country showed greater balance or depth than Villanova, and this lineup should have little issue facing a low-major team because it can physically bully rivals all year.

 

It’s difficult to trust a Delaware squad that lost eight matches in CAA play, and the Blue Hens’ defense just isn’t up to the task of facing the Big East champions. Delaware’s offense is strong, but the Blue Hens only faced one NCAA Tournament club this season, falling to Davidson 93-71 in their opening game.

 

With the Blue Hens battling to generate stops throughout the game, Villanova should be able to put this one away early. The Villanova Wildcats will win to a predicted score of 75-58.
