Providence vs Xavier Headlines NCAAB Picks Today

Wednesday night brings a Big East scrap between Providence and Xavier in Cincinnati. Neither team is blowing our socks off, but that doesn’t mean the pair won’t put on a show head-to-head. The Musketeers have a sketchy record but are favored to win this game by five points over their peers in the Big East. While they are on the wrong side of the NCAAB betting odds, the Friars might be worth a look as underdogs.

Providence vs Xavier ATS Pick: Xavier -5

The NCAAB lines list Providence as underdogs, and while I do like a good Cinderella story, I don’t think a win is in the cards for the Friars. That leaves us with a NCAAB spread on Xavier to cover -5 as favorites at home.

Desperation is a big motivator, and at 13-12, the Musketeers cannot afford to lose another game. From now until the end of the season, every game is a must-win.

A win would give Xavier an all-important tiebreaker over the Friars after a 2-0 season record against their rivals.

Providence doesn’t travel well and has a tepid 2-6 record on the road, with one of the losses covering the Vegas betting odds.
