Xavier Musketeers vs #11 Providence Friars. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #11 Providence Friars. I can see both sides making an argument since this is a low price for Providence, but the line seems a little strange.

 

With that said, I’m still leaning toward Providence in this case, as the Musketeers are regressing and desperation can only get you so far in terms of drive. I believe this is just a matchup where the Friars are the superior team and performed admirably at home, so I’ll take Providence at home in this one. The #11 Providence Friars will win with a predicted score of 72-71.
