The Tuesday PhillyProps: Villanova

First or Second Half

Bob Vetrone

Villanova has played two Big East road games so far. Here are the point differentials in those four halves:

-4 . . . vs. Creighton, 1st Half
+16 . . . vs. Creighton, 2nd Half
+18 . . . vs. Providence, 1st Half

-12 . . . vs. Providence, 2nd Half

Take into account that the Wildcats were upended on Butler’s floor two straight seasons as No. 1 and we doth think VU’s focus will be set. They are going to win one of the halves, big. So . . .

Pick: Villanova to win First Half ($5/-105)
. . . And if they don’t win the first half . . .
Pick: Villanova to win Second Half ($10/whatever odds you can get)
