Villanova Basketball Odds

The Villanova University Wildcats have given Pennsylvania so much over the years that many people in the state are big supporters. And when it comes to college basketball wagering, they bet on the Wildcats.

Since legal online sportsbooks launched in Pennsylvania, Villanova Wildcats odds have been a big play. And with high hopes heading into every NCAA season, there are lots of betting markets to consider.

This year, the 2022-2023 Villanova team features a new look with Kyle Neptune taking over as head coach. The legendary Jay Wright decided to retire following the completion of the 2021-2022 season. Expectations for the program still remain high, though.

Below find your complete guide to betting on Villanova basketball, including live odds for the next Wildcat’s game, team and player props (where available) and odds on another National Championship.

Bet on the Villanova Wildcats Online

Some states like New Jersey imposes restrictions on college sports betting. New Jersey sportsbooks cannot take bets on games that involve New Jersey schools or take place in New Jersey.

However, Pennsylvania does not impose these same restrictions and Wildcat bettors can find lines on Villanova games posted at all licensed Pennsylvania sportsbooks.

Be advised that, while it is very difficult to police, students and faculty at Villanova are technically not supposed to bet on their athletic squads. Team members and athletic department staff are not permitted to bet per PGCB regulations, but no sportsbook will stop a Villanova student with no connection to the team from betting, so long as they are 21 and located within the state.

The basic college basketball bets available at Pennsylvania sportsbooks are:

  • Lines (Moneylines, Spreads)
  • Totals
  • Futures

Villanova Lines

A line bet in college basketball is quite similar to a point spread bet in football. Sportsbooks post the line on a Wildcats game with the same positive (+) or negative (-) number beside each of the teams.

The negative number is for the team that is favored to win. The actual number represents the points the team is favored by. In order to calculate the betting winner, that number must be deducted from the favorite’s total score. The same positive number means the team is an underdog, and the points should be added to that team’s total score to determine the betting winner.

Ultimately, you must pick the winner with the posted line factored in. Sportsbooks will usually make the odds -110 on all line bets. That means you’ll have to bet $110 to win $100 plus your bet back on either side.

Another option for bettors is the moneyline, which is a bit simpler than the point spread bet. With a moneyline, the bettor must simply pick who wins the game, and the odds are based on which team is the favorite. For example, one team may be a -150 favorite, which means that a bettor would need to wager $150 to win $100 on a successful bet. Conversely, an underdog may be +150, which means a bettor would need to wager $100 to win $150.

Villanova Totals

Totals are exactly like the over/under in a football game.

Sportsbooks set a line on the total number of points both teams will combine to score in a single game. Then it’s up to you to decide if the actual total will be over or under that number and bet on it.

Just like line bets, sportsbooks will make the odds -110 on all totals. That means you’ll have to bet $110 to win $100 plus your bet back whether you like the over or the under.

Villanova Futures

Futures are bets made on something where the outcome will not be determined until a future date.

Traditionally, NCAA futures are bets on who will win the National Championship before the season starts. However, most sportsbooks will book futures all season long and into the NCAA tournament on any team, as long as the team still in contention.

Villanova Parlays

Sportsbooks offer players the chance to combine two or more of these basic bets into parlays. Parlays normally pay better than individual bets. However, you have to win all the bets that are part of it for a parlay to pay at all.

NCAA Tournament Brackets

The traditional way most Pennsylvanians have always bet on March Madness is through NCAA tournament bracket sheets they enter into office pools or contests at local bars and social clubs. These paid office and bar pools are actually illegal.

However, Pennsylvania sportsbooks now run legal pools and bracket contests of their own, which lets you bet on March Madness the same way you always have as well as bet on individual March Madness games.

Filling out a tournament bracket sheet for a March Madness bracket contest involves picking a winner for all 63 tournament games from the first round to the championship game before it begins.

NCAA Prop Betting

Betting on NCAA basketball player props is not offered in Pennsylvania. For example, when betting on the NBA, player props like “Embiid over 8.5 rebounds” and “James Over 20.5 points” are available. However, similar betting markets are not available for college basketball in Pennsylvania.
