March Madness betting statistics tell us that American finished the season 24-7 and they were 1-0 versus the spread in their only lined game. Villanova finished the season at 26-7 straight up and 16-13 against the point spread. March Madness odds favor Villanova in this matchup for a number of reasons.
The Wildcats do a lot of things right. Scottie Reynolds is an excellent guard who can take over a game while Dante Cunningham is the team’s main inside scorer. Villanova thrives on getting turnovers, playing tough defense and wearing teams out.
They have an excellent chance to cover the March Madness odds in this matchup when they face American. Villanova’s only weakness would seem to come when Cunningham gets in foul trouble. The Wildcats also sometimes forget to feed him the ball which makes them one dimensional.
The Eagles have some senior talent led by guard Garrison Carr, the MVP of the Patriot League Tournament. He has the team record for career three pointers made. American could be dangerous in this game in terms of March Madness odds if Carr gets hot.
The Eagles are 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games overall as March Madness betting statistics show.
