The Providence Friars wagon continues, now 23-3 next year after winning what was supposed to be the match of the year against Xavier earlier this week in three overtimes.
The Friars turned their attention to Creighton, who is currently in the NCAA tournament, but could use one more win to bolster their candidacy in ‘Big Dance.’
Let’s check the odds from WynnBET Sportsbook and find the best bet for this Big East showdown.
Total: 136 (Above -110/Under -110)
This has opened 6 but there is still room to continue here. While the Bluejays lose star guard Ryan Nembhard for the rest of the season, I can’t help but tarnish the Brothers. Providence wrapped up one of the craziest games of the season earlier this week, tripling the thriller against Xavier at home, and possibly slamming home against a motivated Creighton team.
Creighton was firmly in 68th place, but could perhaps use another Quad 1 win over 23-3 club Providence. Not to mention that Ed Cooley’s club has Villanova on deck in a game that could mean the Big Eat title.
Now, Providence just needs Victory on Saturday to claim the regular season title, but can they do it by this margin? The team played all-round during the season, so now we expect a substantial win after such a grueling game last time?
Main keeper Al Durham has had to battle a sports hernia and was in and out of the dressing room on Wednesday night while Jared Bynum suffered an injury (possibly just a cramp) late into third extra time.
All in all, this is the final flat spot for a Providence team that has performed well in winning tight matches but struggled to win by a margin. Creighton has the best defense in the Big East and will make for a flat game and could disrupt the Brothers team’s work. I think Jays is a dog that lives on Saturday nights.
PICK: Creighton +4.5, play to +4
