In a rematch of the 2021 NCAA Sweet 16, the Villanova Wildcats look to get revenge on the Baylor Bears, this time with point guard Collin Gillespie in the lineup.

Villanova Wildcats vs. Baylor Bears (-4.5, 138.5)

(stats as of Saturday morning)

Both offense have been performing at a high level, with Villanova seventh in America in points scored on a per-possession basis. Baylor is ninth, but Villanova comes in as the better 3-point shooting team, making 39.2 percent of their 3s.

The Baylor defense has made life difficult for point guards, getting a steal on 15.7 percent of possessions, the third-highest rate in the country. However, Villanova is ninth in the country in fewest turnovers committed on a per-possession basis.

The Bears have struggled at the free throw line this season, making 65.6% of their free throws, which ranks 292nd in the country.

With Villanova making 78.4 percent of their free throws and four different players getting at least 12 points per game, the Wildcats will avenge their NCAA Tournament loss.

Pick: Villanova + 4.5
