Villanova Wildcats vs. Syracuse Orange CashBet Wagering Analysis

On this occasion, there will be a sharp increase in sportsbook wagering action.  Syracuse and Villanova are perennial national powers and March Madness participants.  Public money will split evenly based on the respective reputations of these college hoops powers.  Villanova is fresher on the minds of gamblers as a recent two-time champion.  But with that comes a price increase. In comparison, sharps will give Syracuse a hard look as the quality underdog.

Villanova Winning but Not Profitable After A Month of Action

Late on, Villanova has covered three of their most recent five games.  The Wildcats have gone under the College basketball odds total in four of their last five matchups.  Overall, Villanova is 6-2 straight up, 4-4 against the spread, and 4-4 over/under.  The Wildcats rank 63rd for scoring offense and 227th for offensive rebounding.  Defensively, Villanova ranks 81st for points allowed and 281st for rebounding.  So far, guard Collin Gillespie leads Villanova with 17.8 points per game.
