Providence is 5-0 against the spread in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record. DePaul is 3-0-1 against the spread in their last 4 home games. The under is 5-0 in the Friars last five games. The over is 9-1 in DePaul’s last nine home games. The under is 5-1 in Friars last 6 road games against a team with a home winning percentage of greater than .600. 

Providence’s offense was impressive in the last game and they are going to find success again in this game. DePaul’s offense showed some holes in their last game and they are going to have issues again in this game scoring. Back Providence against the spread. I also like the under to cash.
