Why Bet On The Villanova Wildcats To Beat The Fighting Irish
Villanova happens to be the reigning National Champions and haven’t lost a game in their first 9 games played is a good start to what this Notre Dame team is coming up against. They are also No. 1 in every poll and very close to unanimous, but the opportunity to make hard cash the easy way lies in Notre Dame having no losses also.
The fact that both of these teams are unbeaten coming into this showdown does NOT mean that both of these teams are automatically close to the same skill set when evaluating your NCAA Basketball bets.
The Wildcats are already showing off the talent they have with an early season win on the road against the Purdue Boilermakers and plenty of tough teams on the schedule for easy proof. The Fighting Irish haven’t played anybody really with a rank of 338 for the strength of their non-conference schedule.
Why Bet On The Notre Dame Fighting Irish To Beat The Wildcats
After returning 3 starters from last year’s team that reached the Elite 8, Notre Dame sees to have been underrated and better defensively than before. In Head Coach Mike Brey’s 17 years the Fighting Irish have never won this many games in a row to open the season and still are only ranked No. 23 which screams betting opportunity.
The Irish just beat Fort Wayne 87-72, and coach Jon Coffman said, “They’ve added another punch to what is already one of the most elite offenses in the country, and that is a really stingy defense that sits in gaps…” They are holding opponents to 37.3% in field goals this year.
Notre Dame is undefeated at 9-0, but the key to your College Basketball betting is their 8-1-0 record ATS overall and the 7-0-0 showing against the betting spread at home. They are able to do this with a Top 10 offense averaging 88.9 points per game while only allowing 63.7 to their opponents.
Villanova Vs Notre Dame Pick & Final Score Prediction
You can be assured that the public will be heavy on the defending Champ Villanova Wildcats for NCAA Basketball betting after starting out with no losses. Coach Brey has the Wildcats’ number since he started coaching at Notre Dame with a 7-4 record versus Villanova winning the last 4 consecutive games head-to-head.
The chances Notre Dame defeats Villanova is not good, but it is possible and should be a very close game. The Fighting Irish defense will get exposed for the most part, but their offense will keep them in the game right to the end. With the Wildcats sure to be over a 5-point spread betting favorite, Notre Dame is the NCAA Basketball bet to play.
