Against The Spread Pick
The Xavier Muskateers and Providence Friars face off on Wednesday in a key Big East showdown. Xavier beat Providence 64-58 earlier this season. Xavier comes into this game having won three of the last four games, and the only loss during that stretch was against Villanova, and even in that game they were competitive. Over the last five games the Muskateers defense has been strong giving up only 66.8 points per game and that type of defense will be the difference. Xavier is 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games overall. Back Xavier to cash.
Over Under Pick
Even though Xavier’s defense is going to be the difference. this game is going to go over the posted total. Overall this season Xavier is averaging 70.7 points per game and over the last five games, Providence is averaging 71.6 points. This might not be the fastest-paced game, but there will still be enough scoring to go over this low total.
