College Basketball TV Schedule: Pittsburgh vs. Villanova Vegas Odds Pick Senior Sports Handicapper Matt Rivers has a winner on the Pitt Panthers (+3) at Villanova.

Reasoning: Ashton Gibbs is out but I absolutely love what Jamie Dixon has done with this team and to get anything is enough for me in this spot. They were just able to win in a tough, tough place in Morgantown against a good West Virginia team and I can see them turning the trick once again here.

Villanova is a very good team that has an upside and the Wildcats should be ready to rumble after that unbelievable one point loss at the RAC the other night. If you somehow didn't see it, Jay Wright's squad blew a 10 point lead with a little over two minutes remaining against a bad Rutgers squad and at the end lost on a four point play with .8 seconds remaining. It was an absolutely gut wrenching defeat the likes of which don't happen all that often. I don't think though that 'Nova will just shrivel up after that loss and go in the tank as they are probably too good for that but they have had their share of recent struggles for sure and the Panthers are the superior team that just continues to chug along and win game after game. Villanova has been scuffling a little more than just that one game against the Scarlet Knights as evidenced by losing three of their past five games and four of seven. Could these kids be questioning themselves a little? Sure they can, there's no doubt about that.

19-5 is still 19-5 but things have not been all that hunky dory of late and even at home Villanova is going to have a lot of trouble today against an opponent that seems to stay in and grind out every single game. Dixon's squad is as mentally tough as they come and at 22-2 is no joke whatsoever. Even without Gibbs the Panthers are extremely potent led by Brad Wanamaker and Gary McGee among others and can and should win this game, period.

Top expert pick on this game: Pittsburgh from real Matt Rivers

For more information:  The 400,000* on Princeton covered by a whopping 27 points last night and now I'm truly ready to roll. It doesn't get much easier than the Tigers mauling the Columbia Lions but I'm going to try and top that as I'm going large today and with good reason.  Four plays today and over a million* of profit are on that table.

Matt Rivers has another 400,000* is here from Lincoln between Okie State and Nebraska along with a 300,000* Indiana-Michigan and a pair of 200,000* in Georgia Southern-Wofford plus an ultra ultra-rare two teaser teaser. Can you say 4-0 sweep of the board? I can and will! Get Matt Rivers card
