Nova vs. Pitt Free Pick (Mar. 28)

Villanova (29-7)  vs. Pittsburgh (31-4)

2009 NCAA Tournament Elite 8 Action
Saturday March 28, 7:05 PM ET
Boston, MA TD Banknorth Garden – East Region

Villanova is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 and an underdog. The under has hit in the last 4 games as an underdog on neutral courts. Villanova looked good against a mediocre Duke team.They took advantage of poor shooting and lack of an inside presence. The Wildcats lack quality inside presence as well. They rely heavily on guard play.

Pittsburgh is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games against conference opponents. The under is 6-0 as a favorite between .5-6.5 points. The under is also 4-1 in the last 5 overall and 6-1 in the last 7 neutral court games. Sam Young has carried Pitt in the first half of all 3 games in the tournament. DeJuan Blair has been dominant in the 2nd half’s and Levance Fields has just been hitting big shot after big shot to win games late. Pitt has yet to put together a complete game in the tournament.

Pittsburgh will be completely focused in this matchup.
 
The first time around they shot a meager 18.8% from 3 and DeJuan Blair was in foul trouble the entire game. This time around I expect a different outcome. The battle in the paint will be won by Pittsburgh and will be the storyline of this Big East matchup to go to the Final Four.

Last game for Villanova (29-7): Win 77-54 vs. Duke
Last game for Pittsburgh (31-4): Win 60-55 vs. Xavier
