Villanova and Ohio State will battle for a spot in the Sweet 16 on Sunday afternoon, and the Action Network’s PRO Report is all-in on the matchup.
If the Wildcats advance, it’ll be a rematch of the 2018 National Championship in which Villanova handled Michigan with ease to secure a second title in three years, and if the Buckeyes advance, we have a classic rivalry in the Sweet 16 between Ohio State and Michigan.
Michigan knocked off the Buckeyes in the last regular-season game of the year, but we’ll talk about that more if we get there.
For now, the Wildcats come in as 5.5-point favorites after a six-game winning streak that has included a Big East tournament title. The Buckeyes have lost three of their last five, but they won the most important game in that span, a 54-41 grind it out victory over Loyola-Chicago.
Here’s where the PRO report is seeing value in this contest.
