Villanova vs Marquette Betting Prediction

Here is our Villanova vs Marquette Betting prediction.

The #6 Villanova Wildcats (18-14; 17-15-0 ATS) made it through their first trip to Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night. They will play the #3 Marquette Golden Eagles (23-8; 18-12-1 ATS) on Thursday as a prize. These teams will meet for the third time at 9:30 p.m. EDT. During the regular season, Marquette beat the Wildcats all three times. Will Villanova win this time?

Villanova Wildcats Betting Prediction

First, we have the Villanova vs Marquette Betting prediction for the Wildcats.

Nova might be the only team this week that did something bad to hurt their hopes of making the NCAA Tournament while trying to win. They beat the DePaul Blue Demons 58–57 with a three-pointer with 10 seconds left.

Losing by one point to that kind of team doesn’t usually motivate the right people. The Wildcats kept DePaul from making more than 40% of their shots, which is a good sign.

The net rankings put Villanova at number 33 and KenPom ranks them 28th. This means that they should be able to beat the top teams, right? That’s especially true for the Wildcats when it comes to defense. With 65.6 points per game, they gave up the second fewest in the conference this season.

The Wildcats made it so that their opponents could only make 41.1% of their shots overall, 32.6% of their threes, and 15.0 free throws per game. Nova had an advantage of +1.4 in turnovers and +0.8 in rebounds. Will they be strong once more?

This attack needs to be better. At 71.1 points per game, they were the second-lowest in the conference. In three straight games, they haven’t scored more than 70 points. Outside the line, they made only 31.4% of their shots, and they only made three of their six free throws.

As the season went on, Nova made 42.8% of their field goals, 34.4% of their threes, and 81.9% of their free throws. They turned it over 9.5 times per game, which was less than any other Big East team. But with 8.7 offensive rebounds, they had the fewest in the league. This game is very important for Villanova, and it will depend on how well their attack plays.

Marquette Golden Eagles Betting Prediction

Now, we have the Villanova vs Marquette Betting prediction for the Golden Eagles.

Marquette went 14-6 in conference play, which was a good season even though they had some illnesses. They’ll have to get by again without Tyler Kolek, who was on the All-BIG EAST First Team. The team is balanced, but without him, the attack should suffer the most. For a team that scored 79.2 points per game, he averaged 7.6 assists per game.

The Golden Eagles made 70.8% of their free throws and 48.4% of their shots from the field. Because he handled the ball so well, this Marquette team only turned the ball over 10.2 times per game on average. They got 8.9 rebounds on offense. What will they be able to do on Thursday?

The Golden Eagles’ defense was also strong; they only let their opponents score 69.8 points per game. They made 42.8% of their shots from the field and 34.5% of their three-pointers. Each game, Marquette let opponents make 15.8 free throws.

No other Big East team had a better turnover ratio than Marquette (+4.9) this season. It helps that they caused 15.1 points per game, which was the most in the conference. When it came to rebounds, the Golden Eagles were -2.6. Let’s see how they start the playoffs.

Villanova vs Marquette Betting Pick

The first time they played Villanova, Marquette scored 87 points. The second time, the Golden Eagles scored 85 points. If Marquette scores 80 points again, Nova will not be able to keep up. Not after seeing how badly they played on Wednesday.

Marquette will cover the spread, just like they did in both of their January games. The Golden Eagles clearly like to shoot and get turnovers. It won’t be close because Marquette is strong even without their best players.
