Pennsylvania Quakers vs Villanova Wildcats
No. 17 Villanova continue to rebuild following back-to-back losses to Michigan and Furman late last month. So far they’ve beaten all of their last five unranked opponents by at least seven-points, which makes the line a nice play today against a Pennsylvania team that has faced one ranked opponent all year.
Minnesota Wild vs Montreal Canadiens
At 15-10-5, Montreal find themselves in the thick of the Eastern Conference Wild Card race alongside bitter rivals the Boston Bruins. The Habs are 4-4-2 in their last 10-games, but more impressively hold a 7-4-3 record on away ice. Minnesota’s season is going backwards fast after falling out of the Western Conference Wild Card picture recently, so this shapes up as a big time opportunity for Montreal to prove themselves.
Valencia v Manchester United
It’s a pressure-free match for both clubs as Valencia have locked up a spot in the Europa League, while Manchester United are already through to the final 16. This still shapes up as a must-watch game though, considering Jose Mourinho’s side recently earned a famous away victory at Juventus earlier this year. As a result, United have lost just once in their last 11 European outings, but considering this one shapes up as another tough trip away from home, don’t be surprised if it ends all square.
