Huge game here between two of the top teams in America. Even the loser might have something to gain with a good performance.
Xavier is looking to avenge a previous loss to Villanova. The winner looks like they will take the Big East title too.
The Wildcats visit Xavier off a loss. They lost at Providence giving them two losses in their last three. No reason to panic in Philly a win would help a lot.
In the loss to the Friars they at least got Eric Paschall back in the lineup. He didn’t contribute a lot but he gives them more size inside.
Jalen Brunson seems like everyone’s #2 candidate for player of the year. He was off against Providence but rarely has back to back poor games (for him).
Mikal Bridges can do more overall. Early on he was leading the team in scoring and they need to get him back to being more aggressive. Especially with Phil Booth still out.
The Musketeers last loss was to Villanova and they haven’t had a to of success against them. Last win was in 2016 and it is the only one in the last 10.
Brunson is awesome but Trevon Bleuitt could be the conference player of the year. He is one of the savviest players in the college game right now…and talented.
J.P. Macura is kind of like Bridges. Capable of big games but also secure in knowing his place in the pecking order. He is reliable.
The same could be said of most of this team. Blueitt is the only real star but they have size and shooting and know how to play together. They are great in close games, even if some are closer than they should be.

Free Villanova Wildcats vs. Xavier Musketeers NCAAB Prediction:
It says a lot that Villanova is still the favourite in this one. Even though it is essentially a pick’em.
It is kind of interesting. Is Villanova that good or is Xavier getting docked for all of those near misses?
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Villanova -1
I trust the Wildcats more than I do Xavier. Even on the road. I think we can get a game of the year type game though.
