Free NCAAB Pick:
Baylor is coming off a solid victory over Wisconsin in a game in which the Bears displayed a suffocating defense in the first half to take a double-digit lead. Baylor will use that defense against an undermanned Villanova squad that is missing Collin Gillespie, its second-leading scorer and leader in assists, to force the Wildcats into poor shot selection. Baylor has covered the number in eight of its last 11 played on a neutral court. Final Score Prediction, Baylor Bears win and cover ATS 77-65.
