The number 19th-ranked Xavier Musketeers will travel to Amica Mutual Pavilion Wednesday night to take on the number 20th-ranked Providence Friars in a game that could have huge seeding implications in the upcoming NCAA tournament. This BIG EAST showdown should be the most exciting game to watch Wednesday night.
Xavier is coming off a dominating win against Seton Hall and will be looking to better their seeding tonight heading into the NCAA tournament. Xavier looks for team leader Souley Boum who is averaging 16.5 points and 4.6 assists per game to lead the Musketeers to the win.
Providence is 15-0 at home this season, and they look to make that 16-0 against the Musketeers tonight. Providence will look to their top performers Jared Bynum who is averaging 9.8 points and 4.5 assists, and. Bryce Hopkins who is averaging 17.3 points over the last 10 games to lead them to their 16th straight home victory
Boum - XAV
Hopkins - PROV
Freemantle - XAV
Hopkins - PROV
Jones - XAV
Bynum - PROV
This is going to be a close game probably coming down to the last possession. Xavier's performance over the season tells me they can and should win this game. When you take into account Providence is getting a 3-point spread advantage for playing at home this is essentially a pick-em game. The best bet here is to take Xavier to cover the spread.
I like this money line at +143 for the Musketeers. I think Xavier wins this game outright and a +143 odds a money line bet here for Xavier to win outright is a good way to supplement your points spread bet.
Xavier comes into tonight's game averaging right at 81 points per game as a team. Providence comes into this game averaging right at 79 points per game. It looks like tonight's game could be a high-scoring affair with both teams scoring right around 80 points. The best bet here is to bet the over as I think combined points could reach 160 or higher.
