Villanova Wildcats vs. Marquette Golden Eagles CBB Odds (02-02-2022)

At the beginning of Shaka Smart’s arrival at Marquette were plenty of questions. Smart arrived from Texas, where he failed to live up to the hype. Smart’s era wasn’t a disaster, but it wasn’t the stuff of Final Fours either. Following a quick March Madness exit last spring, Smart and the Horns agreed to split up. It proved to be a poor fit with the College Basketball odds. Marquette is beginning to look like another story. Smart and the Golden Eagles have the makings of a perfect fit. On Wednesday night Marquette has a golden opportunity against Villanova.
