TOM STRYKER’S FREE COLLEGE BASKETBALL SELECTION SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 3RD
#826 VILLANOVA (-) over Georgetown at 12 PM EST
Wildcats head coach Jay Wright has Villanova playing at an elite level right now and Georgetown will be no match for the Big East’s No. 1 and lone undefeated team. The Hoyas arrive off a pair of SU and ATS wins over St. John’s and Xavier and they’ll get a quick reality check here.
History will certainly be on the home teams side. In this series, ‘Nova owns an impressive 11-1 SU and 7-5 ATS record in the last 12 battles against G’Town including a proud 6-0 SU and 4-2 ATS at home in this run. Equally impressive, since the start of the 2013 season, Villanova has assembled a profitable 182-25 SU and 127-72-3 ATS record including a phenomenal 79-13 SU and 61-31 ATS in this set provided its opponent arrives off two or more straight up wins. With those two parameters in play and the Wildcats taking the floor off a pair of straight up wins over their own, this team trend explodes to a sensational 66-10 SU and 53-23 ATS.
This is going to be a tough wagering spot for Georgetown. When coming off two or more straight up wins, the Hoyas have struggled financially inking a weak 19-33-2 ATS mark. In this role facing a conference foe, G’Town falls to a dismal 9-19-1 ATS including just 2-10 ATS in this set if they’re on the road. Also, when stepping up in class and running the floor against an opponent that carries a team won/loss percentage of .751 or better, the Hoyas hold a timid 7-23 SU and 9-19-1 ATS record including a nasty 4-12 SU and 3-11-1 ATS if they arrive off a straight up win.
The Wildcats have been a force from behind the arc cashing at least 12 three-pointers in each of their last six games. Matched up against a Hoyas three-point defense that is ranked 209th in the NCAA, Coach Wright’s kids will cruise to another easy win and cover. Take Villanova. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
It’s the Patriots and Rams for all the marbles in Super Bowl LIII and Stryker is going to be right there to make the winning call. Two outstanding technical situations support this key release and these angles hold highly profitable marks of 14-0 ATS and 17-2 ATS. Grab Tom’s NFL Super Bowl Golden Side Best Bet for $25.
