There's going to be a lot of public action on Villanova at home against a Rutgers team that just lost leading scorer Eli Carter to a season-ending injury in Saturday's 69-75 loss at DePaul, but I actually think the value is with the Scarlet Knights. Villanova is coming off a big road win at Connecticut Saturday. I already marked this as a letdown game for the Wildcats with an important home game against Marquette on deck. I believe the injury to Carter will only make it that much harder for Villanova to get motivated for this game. The Wildcats are just 1-9 ATS off two consecutive road games over the last 3 seasons!
While Carter will be missed, Rutgers still has a pretty good offensive weapon in sophomore Myles Mack, who dropped 28 points in the loss to DePaul. Look for Mack to take over the scoring load and the rest of the team to step up their game. This is a big game for the Scarlet Knights, as they haven't forgot about the 21-point loss to Villanova in last year's Big East Tournament. BET RUTGERS!
