After the slowest night of the college basketball season, we’re back up and running with an intriguing Tuesday evening slate.

Not only does No. 17/16 Villanova carry a 25-game Big 5 winning streak into its duel with Penn, but Georgia Southern and UCF also go head-to-head in a matchup of opposite tempos.

Which sides showcase more value? Let’s break down both games.

Georgia Southern Eagles at UCF Knights

  • Spread: UCF -12
  • Over/under: 146
  • Tip: 7 p.m. ET
  • TV channel: ESPN3

The Eagles (5-2 against the spread) shot 38.5% on 3s in their latest win over Mercer, but they’re much more likely to regress to their usual standard against the Knights (7-2 ATS).

UCF owns the 17th-lowest Adjusted Tempo (65.5 possessions per 40 minutes) in the nation and matchup well against Georgia Southern’s eighth-highest pace (76.5 PP40) via an elite defense.
