Odds from 

The game here is one that looked good early on, but now both of these teams are struggling. The Wildcats are coming in playing at home and have played good at home. The Hoyas for their part are not a road team at all. With that being the case, I see the Villanova Wildcats picking up the win rather easily in this game, covering the spread, but I do look for the total to go under here as neither one of these offenses are going to play well enough to secure the total.
