Against The Spread Pick
The Providence Friars and St. John’s Red Storm face off on Wednesday and in this game the value lies with the home squad. Both of these teams have had their struggles this season, but there is no way you can back the Friars on the road. Away from home they are averaging only 66 points per game, and that type of offense isn’t going to be enough. The Friars are 4-9 against the spread in their last 13 road games. I don’t trust the Red Storm much more, but they are the play here.
Over Under Pick
The Red Storm are an elite offensive team at home, averaging 77.6 points, and in this game there is no reason they can’t run up the score. The Red Storm’s defense has also not been good as of late ,giving up 78.8 points per game over their last five. The over is 6-2 in the last eight meetings between the two teams. Back the over to cash in this one.
