The Yellow Jackets are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a S.U. win and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 neutral site games. The Wildcats are 4-13 ATS in their last 17 Friday games and 21-8 ATS in their last 29 non-conference games.
While there's no line yet, Villanova should have its way in this game due to the talent gap and the amount of offense the Wildcats can hit you with. The Yellow Jackets can struggle to put the ball in the hoop, and that's not going to fly against Villanova.
I like the Wildcats by double digits.
