In their last games Villanova beat Marquette 73-56 and Xavier lost to Seton Hall 71-62.

Villanova has won 4 straight and 10 of their last 11 and if they win 1 of their last 2 games they will win their first Big East title outright in more than 30 years. Earlier this season at home the Wildcats crushed the Musketeers 81-58.

Xavier is sitting in a tie for 3rd place in the conference standings and they have 20 wins, but they may still be on the bubble. However, they can likely get off the bubble and assure themselves an invite to the Big Dance with a win over 6th ranked Villanova.
[ad-6571516]
Xavier is 1-2 this season facing ranked teams with one of those losses coming against Villanova.

James Bell l(15.1 ppg) leads the Wildcats in scoring and in the earlier win over Xavier he went for 27 points. The Wildcats have 3 players that are averaging over 14 ppg.

Xavier C Matt Stainbrook has a sprained knee and will not play and his loss is big since he ranks 2nd in the Big East in rebounds per game.

Semaj Criston leads the Musketeers in scoring (17.1 ppg) and in his last 2 games he has scored 28 points and 21 points respectively. He and Justin Martin will have to play well tonight and while Martin’s offense is important he is the 3nd leading rebounder for the squad and with Stainbrook out he has to hit the glass tonight.

Villanova has not played at Xavier since the 1974 season.

Xavier will have to play good D in this game to win since they are not a high scoring team ranking 145th in the nation in scoring. Their D will face a Wildcats’ teams that ranks 27th in the nation in points per game.

Betting Trends

Villanova is 35-16 ATS in their last 51 games overall, 15-7 ATS in their last 22 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record, and they have an Over record of 16-5 in their last 21 road games.

Xavier is 20-6 ATS in their last 26 home games, 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games vs. a team with a winning road record, and they have an Over record of 5-2 in their last 7 home games.

Jason’s Pick:

I would love to go with Xavier in this one, but Villanova has a much better all-around team and they will win this road game, cover the spread, and capture the Big East title.
