The Villanova Wildcats come into tonight’s game at Temple as the #1 ranked team in the country. They are still undefeated, although they faced a stiff challenge from unranked LaSalle in their last game. They beat the Explorers by a score of 77-68, failing to cover as a 20 point favorite. That game went over the listed number of 142, but tonight’s total his far higher than it was in any of Villanova’s previous road games this season. Tonight’s number is almost 20 points higher than it was when Villanova played at Temple in February of 2016.

The listed total was lower than 140 in six of the last eight meetings between these two teams. One of the reasons why we have seen such low totals is that both these teams are excellent on defense. That is true again this year, as Temple has held opponents to just 66.5 point per game at home, while Villanova is allowing an average of just 63.3 points per game overall. The Wildcats have gone under in 11 of their last 14 road games, and I expect another low scoring battle here in Philly.

NBA Pick: Larry Ness betting the New York Knicks -3.5 points on December 12th 2017

LA is set up for a letdown here in my opinion after back-to-back road victories. With a game at the Cavaliers on Thursday, this also sets up as a “look ahead” spot for the Lakers.

New York hasn’t been perfect this year, but it’s been a lot better than last season. The Knicks won’t be taking this matchup for granted as they’d dropped six of eight before beating ATL 111-107 at home on Sunday.

LA is just 1-4 ATS in its last five road games against a team with a home winning percentage of greater than .600 this year (the Knicks are 12-5 SU/ATS at home this season) and just 3-4 ATS off an upset win as an underdog, while New York is 6-1 ATS in its last seven against the Western conference and 7-3 ATS in all non-conference games.

For all the reasons listed above, consider laying the points in this matchup.
