TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION WEDNESDAY, MARCH 3RD
#686 VILLANOVA (-5) over Creighton at 8:30 PM EST
Off that embarrassing 12-point road loss at Butler, Villanova will get back on track with a solid effort against No. 14 Creighton under the Wednesday night lights. The Bluejays enter this Big East battle off an eight-point loss at Xavier and this is not the place to try and bounce back.
The Wildcats will be sure to leave it all on the court in this matchup. Surprisingly, head coach Jay Wright’s troops have dropped the last two battles in this series by margins of 15 and 16 points respectively. That fact isn’t sitting too well with the ‘Nova players and they will be going for the jugular here. When priced as an underdog or a favorite of -5.5 or less, the Wildcats hold a reliable 17-10 SU and ATS mark provided they are running with same season single revenge. In this run holding a team won/loss percentage of .525 or better, Villanova improves to a money-making 14-4 SU and 13-5 ATS. Lastly, stepping up in class and battling an elite foe that holds a team won/loss percentage of .701 or better, the Wildcats own a stunning 53-19 SU and 47-24-1 ATS mark.
Sporting a feeble 1-5 SU and 2-4 ATS mark, Creighton has certainly experienced a little trouble competing at Villanova. To make matters worse, Big East guests that hit the hardwood off a straight up loss as a favorite own a weak 17-43 SU and 20-40 ATS tally in their last 60 tries provided they are lined up against a conference foe. If our “play against” side is going into revenge, this technical situation falls to a woeful 9-25 SU and 8-26 ATS including a nasty 3-19 SU and ATS in this set if their opponent arrives off a straight up loss. The Bluejays fit all three of those negative wagering situations.
With winning percentage being used to determine the regular season conference champion, the Wildcats will be sure to do everything in their power to swipe this victory. Take Villanova. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
