Providence is now on a three-game win streak, defeating three straight Big East teams, including a nice home win over Seton Hall. Villanova is coming off a 71-60 home win over St. John’s in their last game, as the Wildcats of Villanova are really hot as of late.

Providence certainly needs this win a lot more than Villanova, even though Nova will still fight for this game. I like the way Providence has played as of late, and I think they will be able to keep this game close enough to catch a cover. I will take Providence plus the points.
