Xavier vs Villanova

The first game I will dive into will be a Big East battle between the Xavier Musketeers And the Villanova Wildcats. The Wildcats entered this season ranked as one of the nation's top ten teams, but they have struggled as of late, sporting back-to-back losses to the Baylor Bears and the Creighton Blue Jays. The Xaver Musketeers enter this game playing to the tune of an 11-1 overall record and ranked above the Wildcats as the eighteenth team ranked in the nation and playing some great basketball.

However, the play I am going to within this spot will back the much better team in the Villanova Wildcats. I believe the Wildcats come out hot in this game and cover the first half at -3. Nova has struggled the last couple of games, but this is still a top ten team in the nation and is very undervalued. The public at the moment is all over the Xavier Musketeers due to the recent struggles for the Wildcats. Jay Wright is one of the best coaches in all of the nation and has not started Big East Conference play 0-2 in a long time. The guard play for the Wildcats will step up tonight and be able to control the tempo and shoot the three-point well enough to win. This is one of my favorite plays of the season so far, as I believe this first half line is a gift.

Xavier vs Villanova Pick

  • Pick: Villanova 1H -3 (-115)

Manhattan vs Citadel

The second play for the sweep, I will be looking at a battle between the Manhattan Jaspers and the Citadel Bulldogs. The Jaspers enter this game sporting an overall record of 7-3, while The Citadel enters this game playing to the tune of a 6-4 record. The Bulldogs will play host to Manhattan, who has been to us this season, but I will be fading the Jaspers tonight. The Citadel is coming off a very bad loss last night to South Carolina State and will look to bounce back tonight at home.

This is a great get me right spot for the Bulldogs, who are the superior offensive team tonight and will be able to control the pace from start to finish. Manhattan struggles to score at times and goes on some cold streaks, a huge advantage for the Citadel. I believe we are getting a generous line here for the Bulldogs, and we will back the short favorite on the money line. I expect we see many three-point attempts per usual from the Citadel, and if they get hot in this one, this could be a runaway type of game. I will gladly back the short home favorite tonight, and we will cash in another bet here and get this sweep!

Manhattan vs Citadel Pick

  • Pick: Citadel -2 (-110)
