Villanova University is famous for its legendary basketball team. Over the decades, the Villanova Wildcats have contributed to an incredible amount of excitement for fans of the sport. Gamblers also love to bet with — and against — the team from season to season. They make their choices based on the college basketball odds presented to them. Covers.com remains an outstanding source for NCAAB odds. Covers.com is home to many articles and videos presenting great discussions about odds, teams, and matchups.
Fans of sports betting and Villanova college basketball should rejoice. Per Covers.com, Villanova now holds the top spot for the “power rankings” for week three of NCAAB.
The current “power rating” of the Villanova Wildcats is -19. Clearly, the basketball odds here indicate Villanova is a heavy favorite. The team’s ranking at the time Covers.com placed it at the top spot reflected 7 wins and 0 losses. The most recent win was an 82 – 57 victory over the Penn Quakers. Player Kris Jenkins scored 22 points on his own during the game, which greatly assisted Villanova’s huge win over their fellow Keystone State rivals.
Point spreads had Villanova at -13.5 to -14.5. As anyone who follows college basketball odds knows, this means Villanova was giving up those points to Penn. The giveaway of points on the spread did not matter. Villanova won by 15. So, anyone who took Penn at +14.5 ended up losing that wager by .5.
If Kris Jenkins had missed one basket and only scored 20 points, those who wagered on Penn would have won. The moral of the story here is close losses are losses. Another moral lesson here is there are reasons why the favorite teams are the favorites.
There are also reasons why Covers.com is such a well-regarded online community for those who are interested in college basketball odds. Actually, Cover.com is pretty comprehensive when it comes to sports. The NCAAB page, however, may be the absolute most impressive of all the sections of the company’s site.
