The Virginia Cavaliers and Providence Friars face off on Tuesday in a college basketball showdown at the Prudential Center.

The Virginia Cavaliers come into this game with a 3-2 record overall and on Monday they were able to beat the Georgia Bulldogs. The defense was once again strong in that game giving up only 55 points and that was the difference as they were able to come away with the victory. A few games ago against Houston the offense could only manage 47 points and there has to be some concern about the consistency of the offense. Virginia is averaging 62.2 points while their defense is giving up 58.4 points per game. Jayden Gardner has been the top player for Virginia averaging 13.5 points while shooting 47.2 percent from the field. Armaan Franklin has also had a big season averaging 11.5 points while shooting 38.5 percent from the field and 26.1 percent from behind the three point line. 

The Providence Friars have found success this season sitting with a 5-0 perfect record. On Monday, Providence scored 77 points against Northwestern, and that was enough to come away with the five point victory. Providence did give up 45 points in the second half, but they were still able to hold on for the victory. Providence is averaging 76.2 points while their defense is giving up only 65 points per game. Providence has been tested this season and they have already beaten a team that likes to play at a slow pace in Wisconsin. In that game, Providence only gave up only 58 points, and that was enough for the five-point victory. Center Nate Watson has been the best player for Providence averaging 19.2 points while shooting 73.9 percent from the field. Al Durham has also had a nice season averaging 15.5 points, 3.3 assists, and 2.2 assists per game.

Virginia wants to keep the pace slow and lean on their defense, but I don’t trust their defense, and they are going to find success in this game. It’s actually going to be Providence’s defense that locks down, and Virginia’s lack of scoring will let them down. Back Providence against the spread.
