Game 1: No. 17 Villanova Wildcats (-7.5, -110) @ Pennsylvania Quakers, 7 p.m. EST

Even though this Philadelphia-based rivalry features at least one series clash in every season since 1955, Villanova has absolutely dominated as of late. The Wildcats have won 15 meetings in a row dating back to 2003, and they've also beaten Penn by more than 7.5 points in the last 12 meetings. 

The only concern? Villanova is 0-1-0 against the spread on the road this season, while Penn is 3-0 ATS at home and 2-0 ATS as a home favorite. 


Game 2: Toronto Raptors @ Los Angeles Clippers (+5, -110), 10:30 p.m. EST

Toronto is the best team in the NBA straight up this season but a surprisingly-poor 12-15-1 ATS – the fifth-worst overall ATS record in the league. The Raptors are slightly better ATS as the road team (6-6-1), but the Clippers currently boast the second-best ATS home record in the NBA at 8-3 (72.7 percent). 

However, the only bump in the road might prove Clippers guard Lou Williams' doubtful status for tonight's game with a hamstring issue, while the Raptors have Kawhi Leonard listed as questionable and their head coach Nick Nurse will be without the team after the loss of his mother earlier today.
