Providence comes into this game after locking up the Big East regular season championship, but is a double-digit underdog in this matchup. Providence has won a bunch of close games this season and could easily have a worse record. Villanova is second in the Big East standings, but is coming off of a heartbreaking loss. Villanova did just beat Providence 89-84 on February 20th. I am taking the points with Providence here.
