The Friars are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 Tuesday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Golden Eagles are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games.

Providence has dropped a couple of tough games recently to Creighton & Xavier, however, this is a very solid team that has the talent to be competitive against the best teams in the country. Marquette lost a bunch of talent from last year’s team and have really struggled in terms of turnovers as they come into this game ranked just 301st in turnover margin. Providence has picked up solid road wins at TCU and Seton Hall already this season and as I think they are just better overall team, I think the play here is to take the Friars and the points. Good Luck!
