What to Know
After two games on the road, the Villanova Wildcats are heading back home. The Wildcats and the DePaul Blue Demons will face off in a Big East battle at 8:30 p.m. ET Wednesday at Finneran Pavilion. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.
Villanova was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap this past Saturday as they fell 66-61 to the Creighton Bluejays. Villanova's loss came about despite a quality game from forward Eric Dixon, who had 20 points along with nine rebounds and three blocks.
Meanwhile, DePaul was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap on Sunday as they fell 69-64 to the Seton Hall Pirates. Guard Umoja Gibson (21 points) was the top scorer for DePaul.
Villanova is the favorite in this one, with an expected 10-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are only 4-13 against the spread when favored.
Villanova is now 10-13 while the Blue Demons sit at 9-15. The Wildcats are 4-8 after losses this season, DePaul 5-9.
